Customer Service Team Leader (Former Employee) – Newark, CA – 29 August 2013
Before I started with this company, the only salt that I knew of were table salt. I never knew that salt was used for so many other things like cleaning salt off of our highways and using salt in hotel laundry methods.
Working for Cargill Salt was extremely challenging as I had to learn the ways salt is harvest, used, and transported. But I had to learn quick because I was aiming for the Team Leader position. By obtaining this goal, I took home (with permission, of course) Operation Manuals from the factory in order to know how it's harvested. I also spent a lot of time talking to our Sales Reps and Quality Control experts. I also learned how to dispatch trucks in order to fulfill and deliver the salt to our customers.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 4 February 2018
The people I worked with were friendly. The work is in a cooler (4oC for 8 hrs), so getting a freezer jacket is a good decision for working there and the job is standing the whole time so good work boots help.
