Quality Technician II (Current Employee), Burlington, NC – July 26, 2014
Pros: really good benefits
Cons: current site is moving to another state.
A typical day at work is busy, but a good busy. My job is self satisfying in that I am accomplishing my goals and helping people live healthy lives. I have learned how to do "Quality" in a different environment than your typical manufacturing environment. Management is great at BD. The leadership is incredibly helpful in helping me achieve my goals – more... and working to my highest abilities. My co-workers for the most part have the same goals, getting the work done and doing our best to help people live healthy lives. The hardest part of my job is not being able to work here till I retire. This site is closing and moving to another state. The most enjoyable part of my job is coming in everyday and not being micro managed. I just "DO" my job, and do it to the best of my abilities. Love coming into work everyday. – less

Machine Assistant (Former Employee), Cockeysville, Maryland – July 10, 2014
Very nice company to had worked for. Learned how to be multi-tasked. Got along well with co-workers and management. The hardest part of the job was having to leave after an 8 hour shift because there was always unlimited overtime which was very enjoyable.

Company offers many opportunities to advance through developmental assignments, mentoring, and reward programs. They highly encourage work/life balance, but are highly appreciative of employees that go above and beyond, rewarding them accordingly
I started by gathering my request forms for the day that needed to be filled for the next day's production. I learned to work well with others and fill orders in a timely fashion. Multi tasking was something that was also expected of me during my daily duties. The most challenging part of my daily routine, was when we came across a order that was priority – more... and we did not have the raw materials that was needed. A rush order needed to be put in, in a timely matter to fill the request. When your order's for the week are filled and complete and it was done by a team effort. – less

Operator (Former Employee), Columbus, NE – March 29, 2014
Pros: we had paid lunch, great benefits
Cons: we couldn't smoke on the campus, got in trouble if we took a few minutes past the allotted half hour for break
I would go in at midnight every night and would work with a team of 3 or 4 people. We would start up the line and inspect and package the product. I learned how to do this work, plus fix the machines and switch out product when needed. My supervisors were very nice and, most of the time, were helpful. My co-workers were fun to work with but sometimes – more... were very juvenile and inappropriate, which at various times made me uncomfortable. The hardest part of my job was when I had to work with people who loved to spread rumors or were just plain unpleasant, because I had to spend eight hours straight with them. The part of my job that I loved the most was learning new things, inside the cleanroom and out in the rest of the plant. I loved being the person that my supervisor would call on to learn something new. – less
