I have been working at Kemin Industries full-time (More than a year)
Good pay for difficulty of work, standard benefits package that starts day 1, including vacation. Overtime is generally available if wanted but never forced on you. Corporate culture without so much of the corporate stuffiness. Tuition reimbursement and adoption assistance.
Not a whole lot, management has a clear direction of where the company is going, they are stingy with capex spending for better AND worse. If you want to move beyond production don't even dream of it without using the aforementioned tuition reimbursement program because they want the damn coffee machine to have a BA/BS.
Advice to Management
You have a lot of strength in your production crew, its one of the better places to work in the general labor/manufacturing industry here so you've attracted the smarter, harder working people. Use that to your advantage and promote more of us from within/listen to us a bit, there's a lot of smart folks out here running the lines. Also don't be afraid to crack down on what few slackers/idiots that have hung around out here, they're ruining it for everyone else.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kemin Industries (Des Moines, IA).
30 minute presentation
3-4 2 on 1 behavior questioning
The interview took about 5-6 hours, but most of it were the same style format questions. There were no stumps or tricks like I've faced during other interviews.
