    I worked at Kalsec full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay, and awesome coworkers. The company is great at being transparent and telling employees what is REALLY going on- good and bad. I think this really helps with motivation. All levels of management are extremely accessible and willing to take feedback from employees.

    Cons

    So SLOW to change or implement new ideas. There is a lot of "we've done it this way for 20+ years" in the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Work on implementation planning- a way to put new ideas in place quickly to allow the business to "roll with the punches". There may be a time when the business needs to adapt to survive.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kalsec (Grand Rapids, MI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    i applied online and received an almost immediate response to interview. i was then sent various links to complete a battery of tests. seeing how this was during the holidays i did contact the HR representative to extend my time as the last test was numerical reasoning. the extension was granted until the first week of the new year, and i completed the tests, which included an extensive personality assessment
    when i called to inquire about my candidate status i was sent a rejection letter almost immediately. seeing how there was absolutely no human interaction with the exception of the interaction that i initiated and judging the uselessness of the "numerical reasoning" test (it involved no mathematics at all, just recognizing number patterns" i think this is a company culture best to be avoided.
