I worked at Duchossois Industries (More than 8 years)
Solid ownership and great products!
Some poor Sr. Managers who are only looking out for themselves!
Advice to Management
Don't lose site of what made the company great,, the customers!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duchossois Industries (Elmhurst, IL) in January 2013.
Went through a recruiter. Got an interview within 3 days of talking with the recruiter.
I met with 4 people on the first interview (HR, Tax Manager, Director, VP, Tax). They were nice people. Described that I would not have a work-life balance. Work 7 days/week for many different deadlines.
Second interview, you meet with CEO, Craig Duchossois and some of the previously mentioned team members. Easy going interview.
Received an offer, but declined it because I know there are jobs out there with a better work-life balance, even in the tax field. Received an offer from another company within a week.
People are nice, job would have been awful. Take it how you will.
Reasons for Declining
The hours described were awful. No work-life balance.
Got an offer from a better opportunity.
