    Advice to Management

    Upper Management has no clue what is going on, many departments (one in particular is a REVOLVING DOOR); managers should promote growth from within and value the employees who show dedication before they leave for a better opportunity. Send managers to management training and not just allow them to continue to make mistakes.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ingredion.

    Interview

    Brought into conference room and had a casual interview. Toured the laboratory afterwards and was taught about each instrument and the process that accompanies them. Rather short interview overall and very friendly interviewer.
