I worked at Kemin Industries full-time
Kemin is an exciting company to work for with long-term employment prospects. The company is growing and presents many opportunities to advance and take on meaningful work. I liked the owning family members that I met during my time there and found them to be down-to-earth and intelligent. A good majority of people working at Kemin fit that criteria as well. The campus itself is really nice and the new building is really neat as it comes with a gym, Starbucks, and a cafe.
A select minority of managers are still in their current position even though they have a recorded history and reputation of mistreating and disenfranchising employees. Try to uncover the history of the manager and position you are applying for during an interview. Also, the politics can get nauseating, frustrating, and in the way of good momentum and energy. Arrogance and finger-pointing tends to rear its head as well.
Advice to Management
Clearly define what Servant Leadership is and isn't and point out the examples that should be followed. Publicly denounce finger-pointing and create a culture where it is okay to be honest and self-accountable.
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.
