    Pros

    Amazing company. This company has worked its way into a very difficult niche and made a name for itself such that major players in the semiconductor industry turn to Rinchem for their logistic needs. This makes working there really enjoyable because right away most clients have a great respect for the company, so you by default feel respected. The company is in that sweet spot for size, where it is still small enough that you work closely to executives and have your own ideas heard. On the other hand, the company is large enough and constantly expanding that there is room for growth and promotion. This company rewards people who acknowledge and admit mistakes (self-report) in order to learn from the errors and grow and improve.

    Cons

    The incentive structures can make each CSC compete with other CSC's. This happens because of a directive given by executives that each CSC manager is "the CEO of their own CSC". This is intended to tell the manager to run the CSC as if it is their own business -- telling them that they have the freedom to run it as they see fit. This by itself is one of the great things about Rinchem -- you really do get to be a large part of the success and direction of the company. However, that directive causes competition between CSC's, because they are to run their own CSC as its own company, so you can see where competition can come into play.

    One negative I heard a lot while working there was "nepotism". This is a family run business; which is amazing considering its size, but it is still a family run business. However, I have to say that the people who have complained about nepotism are wrong. It is like when you buy a new car and suddenly you see that car everywhere. People know it is a family run business and see family members working there and all they can see is nepotism. I think someone could easily argue that there were times reverse nepotism happened. There were times that a family member should have been promoted because they were the best person for the role, but they were passed over seemingly to avoid the perception of nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Build stronger inter-CSC relationships, and create incentives that encourage managers to see that helping another CSC helps their own CSC. Also, for company parties and banquets, spend money to fly in a few NON-MANAGEMENT staff personnel from each CSC.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rinchem (Albuquerque, NM) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Varies based on who conducts interview. Be prepared for behavioral based questions, general conversation, and direct questions. Some interviewers are very skilled to get an answer they otherwise wouldn't be able to acquire.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Set your requirements (must have, nice to have) before negotiating with any company and stick to them. Be prepared to justify what you are asking for.
