Best Job I ever had
Forklift operator (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL30 October 2017
Morton is a company that values good work and thus, good workers. They pay accordingly. They offer lots of benefits that are not money driven---off on your birthday, company outings, etc. Too bad the plant closed it's Chicago warehouse.

Challenging, with Opportunities
Plant Reliability and Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Silver Springs, NY19 October 2017
Challenging environment, presenting many opportunities for improvements. Compensation and benefits are good.Most locations are rural. Salt is considered a commodity and is also weather dependent, thus business success varies.

Poor Middle Management
Tax Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Chicago, IL17 August 2017
The CEO had one vision but when it came to the Management below, they where not listing. They advance people "men" like a boys club, no upper Female management.

Pay is good...but that's about it
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Hutchinson, KS14 August 2017
Employees can be an employers biggest asset, but not at Morton Salt. Supervisors think that it is ok to beat employees into the ground to where they no longer want to care if they do a good job or not.

The hours for most jobs are awful. A rotating 6 & 2 schedule where you only get a Saturday and Sunday off every 6 weeks. People can go a month or more and never get to see their kids depending on the schedule they are on.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Management and work schedule

Small Plant with little advancement chances
Plant Reliability Engineer (Current Employee) –  Hutchinson, KS14 May 2017
Culture is rough, they are trying to change. But with people that have been at the plant for 30+ years it is a rough road to travel. There is little progression for Engineering. In the past 5 years they have lost 7 Engineers. Which is impressive considering there are only 3 Engineer positions.

The culture is changing, but not in a positive direction for the employees.
Procurement (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL13 May 2017
It was always a fast-paced (high volume commodity) yet good place to work that people often retired from and most of the people are really good to work with. However, there have been a number of changes since about 2012-2013 and the number of salaried employees leaving corporate and the manufacturing plants has increased. The company seems to lack direction now, except it is consistently combining & eliminating jobs. The salaried employees appear stressed in many departments. The hourly workforce is more stable. The pay seems good, but there is a lack of work-life balance for many salaried positions as well as some hourly positions that rotate shifts. Expect to be on call 24/7. The parent company in Germany is having problems also. It's unfortunate.
Pros
pay
Cons
work-life balance, not as stable as it once was

Not a good place to work
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Rittman, OH8 February 2017
No training or help from upper management, upper management looks down on people below them.
Union Workforce trades are lazy, complainers, giving all their hard jobs to on-site outside contractors, Trades folks are unskilled and you wonder how they got their position. Maintenance Foremen and planners have a clique and are untouchable, yet do nothing of value to make work or production better.
Environment is unhealthy, safety is pushed yet not enforced. Equipment is old and deteriorating causing many batches of salt to be rejected.
Why anyone stays there is question you will ask other than uppity front office folks.
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons
Unhealthy, long hours

Fun but difficult refinery type environment. EXTREMELY safety conscious
Power and Production Superintendent (Salt) (Former Employee) –  Newark, CA9 January 2017
No typical day at work, challenges daily. Learned what pipes pumped what and went to where. Also learned about the three ways to harvest salt and the numerous types of salt and what they were used for. Had a positive rapor with both unions. At first there was a lot of shift work, but after being promoted, it was a day job. The most enjoyable part of the job was the name recognition and the employer's positive phobia about work safety.
Pros
Safety Safety Job Security Benefits
Cons
none
