    I have been working at Kemin Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kemin Industries (Des Moines, IA).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a specific time when your manager asked you to do something you didn't agree with or think would work. How did you handle the situation, what was your manager's reaction, what as the result for the company, and would you make the same decision again?   1 Answer
