High expectations
Distribution Warehouseperson (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABSeptember 22, 2012
This financially-driven corporation has high expectations with respect to employee output. I always felt up to any challenges, including educating myself on new systems and working the extra hours needed to get the job done efficiently.
My experience with the company will always be invaluable:
- I gained important human resource skills, both interpersonal – more... and professional, through educational offerings by the company, as well as hands-on experience.
- I learned advanced computer skills, such as the Supply Chain Management Application (specifically Extended Warehouse Management) of SAP.
- I interacted positively on a daily basis with various levels within the Supply Chain organization; from management, to truck drivers, to my team of warehouse operators.
- I successfully handled, with the help of my team, daily challenges to meet last-minute orders.
- I provided exceptional customer service with a positive, solutions-based attitude. – less

A day at work
Instrumentation/Electrical Technician (Former Employee), Bishop, TXMarch 28, 2014
A typical day was always a challenge. It was always something new either a transmitter to troubleshoot or motor that needed to be megged. The guys i worked with were amazing and very talented. My boss was very fair but yet stern. He allowed us the ability to learn everything we needed. My co workers and I were always involved in different aspects of – more... the plant such as. Myself and another co worker designed a new system that would allow troubleshooting on thermocouples and heaters a lot easier. We relocated boxes ran new wire and ran new conduit. We added new points in the DCS board and mounted new thermocouples. – less

Great place to work with great co-workers
Shipping Services Specialist (Former Employee), Bishop, TexasMarch 4, 2014
Pros: worked at celanese for 37 years at the same location, i knew all the protocols and developed good relatioships with many employees, pay and benefits were good
Cons: long hours at some points due to operational issues
A typical day at work lasted 8-12 hours. I was responsible for five different contract work groups with different responsibilities. The most critical aspect of my job was ensuring we had no injuries or safety incidents. Secondly we had to meet all internal and external customer requirements and deliver shipments which conformed to DOT HAZMAT regulations. – more... Each of the five work groups contributed to this effort. I enjoyed this position because I was able to perform my duties with little to no supervision.

I maintained budgets for my areas of responsibility and was the primary interface between these contract employees and Celanese Management.

I was very fortunate that all the work groups I managed worked as a team. It is very rewarding to see individuals bond in different situations and providing support to each other.

During my career at Celanese I was able to build many relationships both within our site and throughout the corporation. I was also given many opportunities to advance during my career. – less

Fun but fundamentally productive
Process Technician (Former Employee), DerbyMarch 28, 2013
Pros: great place to work
Cons: 12 hour shifts
A typical day would consist of a production meeting or shift hand over involving your opposite number where any issues in production would be highlighed,this information would be loggged onto a data base by either the ingoing or outgoing shift where each member would take up the respective machinery on the production or manufacturing side.There was – more... always something that you might come across that you have never experienced before thus adding to the learning process for future reference.Team work was always at the forefront of your working day so a good relationship with your colleagues always made the day more enjoyable.Working 12 hour shifts could sometimes leave you exausted – less

Politically charged work – more... environment.
Pay and benefits are very good. – less

AP Supervisor (Former Employee), Dallas, TXNovember 14, 2012
Pros: good benefits, credit union on-site, parking garage
Cons: little scheduling flexibility, long waits for it issue resolutions
Supervised 11 AP accountants in a shared services environment. Helped department convert from SAP 4.6 to SAP 4.7, documented policies and procedures to strengthen internal controls as part of the SOX team, daily batch audits, prepared monthly metrics reports, assisted with research for 1099 reporting, approved time-cards for temporary employees, documented – more... AP issues and resolutions, and presented new policies in town-hall style meetings. The hardest part of the job was finding the right contacts within the company to assist with problem resolutions. This is a very large company and some manager's areas of responsibility overlap each other so there might be 2 or more answers to the same question, or miscommunication as to who would answer and therefore no answer. The best part of the job was the team of AP accountants in the department. They were dedicated to doing good work and knew their jobs well. – less

Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee), Spondon, Derby.November 13, 2012
Pros: easy to commute, 18 days off.
Cons: working weekends, long shifts.
Although we have a shift supervisor, our team of four plans out production and maintenance for the shift. We have two teams of two working from a control room. I work with a co-worker on Flake production and carry out any repairs on first line maintenance or write out maintenance reports to get the work carried out..( This is the hardest part of the – more... job as my co-worker has worked here for a very long time and doesn't like change.) I have to carry out isolations and permits in order to do this work, as I'm the only one who is qualified to do this. Management sometimes phone you to check on issues we might have but we never see senior management on the plant. The reward I get is when you have resolved an issue and got the plant back running on full production in time to hand over to the next shift. I enjoy the variety of work I come across from which you learn new things about. – less

Leading and working as a team,with members in my department as well as liaising with members from other areas.The hardest part of the job is the reactive side,only so much proactive work can be done.At the same time the reacting to different scenarios and – more... solving these can be self rewarding. I have learned alot about manufacturing as well as being trained up a numerous amount of activities such as,fork lift, safety procedures and team leading skills. – less
