I have been working at Dematic full-time (More than 3 years)
Dematic's industry is booming, our technology helps companies like Amazon, Frito-Lay, Walmart to get things done. It is really amazing to see all the pieces of a warehouse working, the conveyors, the sorters, the AGVs, the multi-shuttles, etc. If you like technology and innovation this is the place to be. People are nice and easy-going. It is a fast-paced environment and you never get bored.
This company is not perfect (which one is it?), it suffers from the same fast-paced environment we live in. Since we need to get things done, sometimes we don't see areas of improvement or ways of streamlining processes.
The age of the population is mixed, which is good but also sometimes doesn't help, you may find young colleagues that want to conquer the world with bright ideas and, on the other hand a guy that has been with the company for 30+ years and is ready for retirement, hence new things take time to digest. This is sometimes frustrating.
There are really great leaders and others that just got promoted because of time served, you know, old school. You have to be patient.
Advice to Management
While the KION acquisition was OK, we are far from being fully integrated and this doesn't really help. It only exacerbates the 'silo' mentality.
Communicate! Communicate! Communicate! Satellite offices are in total oblivion. We are in a globalized industry, please stop being so Grand Rapids centric. Expand your horizons, open you eyes, there is life beyond Michigan!
To the new CEO, please shake this place. Challenge the status quo and if possible, please eliminate red tape and negative people. There are managers that don't listen, are just bottlenecks or complete ghosts/strangers that don't delegate and want to call all the shots, how did they get there? We are not in the 80's anymore.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dematic (Grand Rapids, MI) in May 2013.
One telephone call and one on-site interview with a group of managers. The on-site interview was a rather casual conversation and very interactive. The phone interview was a set of beginner questions and conducted by managers who were not experts in my field.
