    I worked at Valspar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The reason is a daily challenge to initiate a batch of material and to complete it successfully and safely, also the job pays well.

    Cons

    To keep your shift schedule of production so that the prior and next shift can as well keep up with production on and on time basis.

    Advice to Management

    Yes I've worked for Valspar in the past and would like very much to be rehired I had a great attendance, safety and production history until I went thru a personal period which I've put aside and today I would appreciate it if at your earliest convenience to contact me to talk of representing your company in my highest regards as a chemical technician.

    I have been working at Valspar full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Left alone to work; no one to oversee my work. OK benefits, although shrinking every year.

    Cons

    No Training, classroom work to improve. All was stopped under last VP Purchasing. More people will leave as local Minneapolis companies are after dissatisfied Valspar personnel. Local Market is improving.

    Advice to Management

    What happened to Trainng and working with Lean Six Sigma versus just Tactical work? Backward Purchasing style.
