I worked at Novus International full-time
A global company in the area of food production so there are endless opportunities to get involved with employees and business issues around the world, which is great. The majority owner, Mitsui, is one of the largest 200 companies in the world, so there is great long-term stability and a long-term view for investments. There is a well-defined and established management system for managing roles, performance reviews and promotions, which helps achieve a lot of clarity and avoid the mess you see at a lot of companies.
Novus needs to find ways to grow faster through some good acquisitions so that market share, cash flow, ROI and opportunities for employees expand.
Advice to Management
Management could improve decision making, productivity and financial results by implementing more process discipline and measurement in ALL functions.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Novus International (Saint Charles, MO).
It was a group/panel style format with 4 different panelists and each had their own questions to ask. Most questions were standard but some were definitely unexpected curve balls. Each had their own 1-2 hour block of time scheduled throughout the day. Each session took an average of 45-90 minutes a piece.
