    I worked at KMG Chemicals as a contractor

    Pros

    Able to help staff be more healthy.

    Cons

    Had to train in the offices. Literally moved desk & office equipment aside in order to have space to train.

    Advice to Management

    Have a area strictly for training in any kind of way. It truly helps productivity in the overall work day.

    Pros

    KMG is a fast growing company with a CEO who is very knowledgeable and wants to continue to grow the business and the stock price.

    Cons

    In a growing business there are growing pains, and KMG is currently experience some of this. With a recent relocation of the corporate office there is so many new employees that there is some additional stress on everyone right now

    I worked at KMG Chemicals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There aren't any positives about this company.

    Cons

    This company cares nothing about its employees. The CEO speaks about caring about his employees and then decides to relocate the corporate office almost 4 hours away. You would think since he claims to care about his employees that he would offer to relocate any employee willing to relocate. No less than half of the corporate office was offered relocation and the ones that were invited weren't even the most talented or had the most tenure. A lot of good people were let go and put in financial hardship.
    If you are desperate for a job I would say consider working here but just until you build more experience or find something better.

    I worked at KMG Chemicals (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was only there for a two month contract position and I enjoyed my short term there.
    Was asked to stay an additional two weeks to help their Accounting department, where I was taught the SAP program, as far as entering invoices and purchase orders.

    Cons

    The company was relocating to Forth Worth, and their was a layoff of about 75% of their employees.

    I worked at KMG Chemicals full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. The benefit package is more than most are offering.

    Cons

    Credit is often given to those who brown-nose the best. Benefits are great but no one really wants you to utilize them.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit where credit is due. Managers are only concerned with how they look to the outside, not how they are portrayed to the employees.
