“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Do you remember your first job? I’m sure most people remember their first job with fond memories. My first job did not go so well. I was a freshman in college and I got a part-time job working in a local deli. The owner was a bit of a jerk (actually, he was a lot of a jerk). Anyway, most of what I had to do was getting new supplies from the basement, setting up some of the food displays and (of course) cleaning up. Fairly easy work, but after a few days of a very abusive boss I decided that I was getting more than my fair share of abuse for my measly minimum wage and decided to move on. This experience is the antithesis of the topic for today’s post, and I’m sure that there are many worse stories of bad jobs than my first job. Better to start with the best companies to work for.
- King’s Daughters Medical Center – As you may have guessed, KDMC is a medical center and is ranked 50 (down from 45 last year). Their career center lists all career opportunities down the center of the page with related links on the left hand side of the page (apply, submit your resume, benefits, etc.). There does not seem to be a job search function, so you will just need to scroll the jobs.
- Mercedes-Benz USA – Ranked at 49 and new to the list, I’m sure you know that Mercedes makes cars (very nice cars in fact). Their career site has a link to opportunities at dealers followed by a link to corporate opportunities. An overview of the company follows. Click either of these links to see current opportunities
- FactSet Research Systems – Another new company to the “best” list (and also on the “Best Places to Launch a Career”), FactSet is ranked 48. FactSet is a financial information company. Their career page is basic, with a brief overview followed by “select your region”. Once you’ve selected your region, a full company overview is provided (along with links to more information on the left hand side of the page). Click the “Search for Jobs” on the left hand side of the page. There were 99 job opportunities when I checked the site.
- J. M. Smucker – Number 47 and yet another new company to the list, Smucker is still family owned and is known for jelly. Their career page is very well done, with links on the left hand side of the page for company history, information on living in their region. Center page is a brief company overview as well as top 10 reasons for working at Smucker. Click career opportunities on the left hand side of the page and then click on student, Professional or Plant Technician.
- OhioHealth – Ranked 46 (down from 18), OhioHealth is a family of not-for-profit, faith-based hospitals and healthcare organizations. Their career site is combined with Volunteering and has links for Search for a Job, How to Apply and a number of informational links. A general search returned 197 jobs.- 46
