I have been working at Stepan full-time (More than 3 years)
The pay and benefits are on par with the other plants in the area and the people you work with are good.
Retirement could be better and so could management
Advice to Management
My first job ever( when i was 16)had a 401k it had a bigger percentage match than stepan. The front line management is very inexperienced, in some cases they come in with no chemical experience and in ALL cases they are unable to help me do my job. It's kind of weird knowing more than your boss about the job they they are boss of.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Stepan.
Applied to position online and was contacted by HR to schedule a phone screening. Once I passed the phone screen I was asked to come onsite. I was given a tour and met the team, very great people and very welcoming. I interviewed with 4 different teams as they wanted to make sure I was a good fit for the position as well as the team and culture.
Reasons for Declining
Felt a different offer/position better fit my needs.
