TEMPORARY FIELD ASSISTANT (Current Employee), Ottawa, ILOctober 16, 2014
I like working for Unimin, I learn something new everyday and I have learned about a lot of different aspects of the mining industry. I have been to over 10 different mines and have worked with glass and frac sand along with clay.

Production & Shipping Supervisor (Former Employee), Two in NC, One in TN and One in CASeptember 12, 2014
Pros: opportunity to advance
Cons: sometimes needed changes to some operations came too slowly
I worked 8 years as an hourly employee with no aspirations to move into the salaried workforce, didn't think it was even possible as the company had replaced former high school or less supervisors with those with a college degree.

I did my job above and beyond what was required, and after owning the 3 local operations for 9 years I was the first hourly – more... employee offered a production & shipping supervisor position. After learning all the requirements and the rest of the operation in the first year I was reassigned to the new plant startup team in the next county. After that was completed I wanted to be nearer my ailing parents and was allowed to move to a recently acquired operation where I assisted in making numerous improvements. After parents died I choose to move to another acquisition in northern California. – less

This is very family oriented company and a low key environment to work in
Lead Support technician Level I & II (Current Employee), New Canaan, CTNovember 26, 2013
Pros: great people to support
Cons: lack of growth and or cross training
A typical day is comprised of 3 of us covering a Helpdesk for about 100 in house employees and in several locations across the US & Canada. I have not learned much while here but have been able to apply my knowledge to my group from past experiences. The hardest part of my job is not being to perform and handle tasks in a timely manner. The most enjoyable – more... part of my job is the joy I get from fixing an end-users PC and seeing the joy on their face. – less

Pros: live close to office, healthcare benefits
For 10 years management was the best and brightest. Unfortunately experience is under appreciated and youth is celebrated. Had many wonderful co-workers, others not so much.

Manager (Current Employee), New Canaan, CTJanuary 15, 2013
Overall a great company to work for. It has great benefits but compensation seems to be low. Culture and values are not so high but the company tries to do the right thing but usually after the fact. Job security is excellent but advancement is low with almost no option for latteral movement. Mostly new management that are on a learning curve. Very – more... liberal with time off and almost nobody works past 5 pm so excellent work life balance. – less
