    I have been working at Unimin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is really exciting and it's great to know that there's a real opportunity to make a difference in the company. Everyone works really hard and are very engaged and open to collaborating. There are lots of opportunities for growth in the role itself and it feels like sky's the limit with all the possibilities. The people I work with are really interesting and I'm particularly impressed with the senior leaders in the company. They are exceptional in how much they support the employees in their growth and development and are true models for what it means to be excellent leaders. They walk the talk. Everyone is open to collaboration and is eager to help.

    Cons

    It's a very lean organization which can be challenging when starting new initiatives. Lots of work and little resources.

    Advice to Management

    You've set the tone for the new organization - be consistent and continue to model the behaviors that you want everyone else to demonstrate. Reward and recognize hard work.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Unimin (New Canaan, CT) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was good and well orchestrated. At least for me they conducted two team interviews. I was not asked specific questions about my expertise, but instead more process related questions. The internal recruiter was great. I was put off (and declined) by a request to take a series of quizzes and tests. It would have been more appropriate to dig in more during the interview process. My work experience has, as an example, min max calculus (network design) in it ... and the quizzes would be used to test my knowledge about whether I could interpret a graph.... it just seemed very, very silly. Other than that - it seemed like a nice place to work, with good and smart people.
