    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at SAFC (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have nothing but amazing things to say about SAFC. I have thoroughly enjoyed working here, the interactions with my co-workers have been positive, the benefits package is really wonderful as well as the awesome atmosphere that Daniel (Site Director) is creating.

    He is trying to create a work place that is not only happy, but one that is very upbeat! Where the employee's interaction is a positive one and the mentality that the glass is half full not empty. I have had nothing but positive experiences and would completely recommend this company to other people seeking employment.

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons, very happy at SAFC!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, SAFC is lucky to have such a great leader!!!!

    QC Chemist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Madison, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SAFC (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    I came in with 5 years previous experience. The interview process for me was mostly finding out if my personality would mesh well with current employees. There were very few questions about technical knowledge. Knowing someone that can vouch for you is the most important part of landing an interview. Some companies want certain schooling, some want minimum job experience, SAFC looks for personal recommendations from current employees first.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no overly difficult questions. The interview was not based on knowledge.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. I should have and regret not countering. Salary is much less negotiable with SAFC but I should have negotiated for more vacation time.
