medium to low stress
Customer Service Representative II (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJune 17, 2015
currently on a temporary assignment through Robert Half and we are paid a lot less through Robert Half staffing agency and the reason the manager want to pay less than other agency because the pay as a temporary employee is more than what is being offered on a permanent basis.
Cons
short breaks, not really experienced with call scoring, pay needs to be more for what is required of reps

Good Company, Plants depend on Managment
Process Automation Engineer (Current Employee) –  PRAugust 5, 2015
A typical day of work is of at least 10 to 12 hours. The balance of life vs work tend to go more to work rather than family (remember this depend on the plant you work).. Management at global level is top of the line, but it may varies from plant to plant.

BD is a great place to work. The company is growing and there are lots of opportunities for growth. The salary is great and all of my colleagues are a pleasure to work with. Management is awesome and transparent in everything. They get it. Remote work is awesome but some travel is expected.

Bilingual receptionist (Former Employee) –  SAntiaghoJune 1, 2015
this job was awesome, the people were so nice and they always helped me during my time there.
Since the beginning my tasks and duties were clearly established by the human resources department, the benefits and salary too.
The fact to have a close relationship with your boss is awesome, few companies let you talk to everybody as an equal.

Despair incuding job enviroment but with excellent pay.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Canaan, CTMay 11, 2015
The job was hard, the hours sucked (We were often stuck with "Mandatory Overtime" which sometimes meant working 7 days a week) and the management was incompetent. Getting vacation time is practically impossible as it's YOUR responsibility to find people to cover for you. The only upside is that the company pays extremely well.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Short breaks, Bad hours, bad management
