Picker/Packer (Current Employee), Elkridge, MD – November 26, 2013
A typical Dat at Alcon is...I come in to my station and begin to set up my area for packing. I learn how to move quickly and how to be affective at all times. Management is sharp and are always willing to help and listen to everyone. My co-workers are the best. They are fun to be around and we always help one another in every way we can. The hardest – more... part about my job is the long hours. Sometimes we work 2 to 3 weeks straight with no off days, but the most enjoyable part of my job is being in a great environmentand the pay is great. – less
Technician Engineeri (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TX – November 20, 2013
Pros: excellent benefits, great place to work at.
Alcon labrotories is a fun friendly environment. Management and cow-workers and great. I have learned how products such as eye drops in this case are made and how the line works. the hardest part about this job would be having to stand for several hours if one choses to. Its a very productive workplace. I am always moving around trying to find something – more... to do, to keep myself moving. The most enjoyable part about my job is knowing that when I'm off, I know that I put in 100 percent effort and did it the best that I could. That right there makes me feel good about myself, and thats what I enjoy the most. – less
deboxing (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – November 12, 2013
Pros: warm enviroment
Alcon is actually a nice place to work, slightly frantic but still fun to work. there hours are manageable and the people there are nice, its challenging to achieve employment there but once you get it the job is quite simple. A typical day is where ever you work, as long as you stay busy and work you will have no problems and the day will be over before – more... you know it. There was really no hard parts of the job as long as you don't have a problem staying on your feet for a few hours. I must say that the best part of the job is the warm feeling with the people you worked with, I'm a big time people person so I get along with everyone and while we got our work done faster than ever we still manage to have some type of laughs or fun. – less
