A good place to work. Production and quality high standards. Most days are steady.. Quality and safety are very important. Temp jobs for entry positions but it usually takes at least a year to get permanent posiyion.
Worked there through a temp agency, which really wasn’t my goals there but had no choice at the time. It was a fun and clean place to work. Very productive and some places were more fast paced then others.
I abosolutely loved the continuous learning process of machine operations. .However, i was a floater amount departments because I was a contract worker.Some departments was very slow and there wasn't much to learn doing routine jobs (packaging ).. Their was an awful amount of favoritism. The management was ok in some departments. A lot of the Bestco employees frowned up on Temp workers ..They showed lots of superiority and treated you like dirt if you wasnt in their social circle. I wasnt affected by this that much..Bestco employees would take advantage of temps taking extremely long breaks,excessive disappearing acts and laziness leaving you to do their work and if you complained they would try to get rid of you saying "you have an attitude ".. They would promote or hire their picks regardless of work ethics ... I left because they dont offer u a job when your hours are in..you have to bid on a job that you've been doing just so they can give it to someone else...

I started working in the qc lab straight out of college and the pay was low but they trained me how to do run many instruments that will benefit me later in my career (hplc, gc, ftir, flame aa). Good insurance at a really low price, good 401k, vacation and sick time off, nice break room. HOWEVER pay is lower than at other similar places and promotions are not that common in the quality department. I feel because you are getting good benefits, the company thinks they can be cheaper on the pay but I guess it's a trade off. They are also EXTREMELY busy, very fast paced environment with plenty of overtime to offer; they may make you work overtime whether you want to or not when things get crazy. I have been here 5 years now and I am ready to move on, but good starting job for experience.

It is a lot of work, but the lab staff are very nice and helpful. Chemists can expect to become proficient in FTIR, HPLC, GC etc. it is a growing company, so there are plenty of opportunities for advancement. Company will hire straight out of college and offer a competitive salary.
entry level salary, 14 days of vacation plus 6 hrs of personal time, paid holidays long(er) breaks, limited supervision, friendly coworkers, cheap healthcare
It's a company that have too many cliques and they discriminate openly.

Some management does care about their employees or their input. My supervisor never listened to what we as employees had to say, and never took time to learn our job but always was willing to make changes and critique our job performance alot.
Good competitive pay
Employees aren't treated well by upper management. They do not listen to the worker's input enough

BestCo was by far the best job I have ever worked at. I loved my job so much. From meeting new people, to being able to sit on the job. To being able to do what you want, while at the same time doing your job.
Sitting on the job, new friends, working in different departments, helping operate machines.
No smoking section, couldn't leave the building at anytime.
Great company for employees who have been with the company for over 5 years.

The company has a lot of potential It will be highly success once the tiny team culture removes the barriers between the tiny teams and embraces all employees as equals based on who they are and not job functions
Working for Bestco was a great experience. I hardly ever had anything to complain about the employer was pretty fare with its associates. pretty down to earth people i would say. if offered a job i would go back.
awarded us with free dinners on our breaks now and then
Hard to become full time instead of remaining a temp. But it is a job that pays. Work is consistent and your given anything that you need to do your job efficiently. This company is improving but still has some ways to go.

Bestco was a great company 5 years ago. New management has ruined the company. They no longer care about the people. Now you are just a number not a person. It's sad because this was a very good company before the new management destroyed it. The production workers are unhappy with the people who are now running the company into the ground.

Bestco is not a bad place to start out at if you just need the money to support and sustain life. However if you want family time, overtime, your beliefs and things of that nature to be honored then you can forget a bout applying at Bestco.

A typical day at work for me consists of supporting production, analyzing finished and stability products as well as qualifying raw materials for use. The past year I've been exposed to a cGMP, FDA regulated environment.
clean parking lot and front entrance, what i learned was that my co- workers and myself along with our manager,we were treated badly by upper management. the hardest part of the job was not being valued and getting a raise of .24 cents an hour. going home
material handler (Former Employee) – Mooresville, NC – March 4, 2014
Wasn't too hard, worked my best. I learned about production line. Management wasn't too bad but wasn't great. Hardest part of the job was the 12 hour shifts and also working every other weekend. Enjoyable part was that it was decently close to home.
