Fast-paced work environment with a multi-faceted industry experience
R&D Intern (Current Employee), Irvine, CAApril 23, 2015
Pros: Catered lunches, monthly happy hours
Cons: Sometimes too fast-paced; too many projects can be overwhelming when pushed by hard deadlines
I learned a lot about how a medical device company works. As a small subsidiary of C.R. Bard, we function as a startup. This leads to employees, especially R&D personnel, to wear many "hats". I've had the chance to immerse myself in product development, manufacturing, clinical, and quality control through this dynamic internship.

Was very complex yet very interesting work environment
Manufacturing (Former Employee), Queensbury, NYJanuary 2, 2015
It was a very sanitary environment and employees had to wear proper attire to cover areas of the body that could of spread unwanted germs. At first my anxiety was very high and I had to keep myself occupied to keep my mind off of it. However the attire required is important for the safety of those patients who will be put in contact with that merchandise. I learned all about how the facilities were organized and how strict the protocols were in regard to yielding so many catheter by the ended of every week. I also learned how complex every department is and how much of an abundance of merchandise is shipped every week. Managers worked hard to run every department and to be fair to the co-workers. Co-workers all had to be team players in order to make sure that group of manufacturers were on the same page. The hardest part of the job was the tedious repetition required in an eight hour shift. However I enjoyed the pay and I got to listen to music which was a plus.

Forklift operator (Former Employee), Covingto Ga.December 28, 2013
A typical day would at work was loading and unloading trucks, staging product, putting the product up using RF scan guns. as well as shipping out the product. It was a team effort all the way around. our team leads stayed on top of everything that was going on, and would help out when needed. There was over two hundred people that I worked with, but mainly with a certain group of people I worked with. The hardest part was at times it was not to fast paced. that's when I would go help out in other area's to stay busy. The people I worked with was by far the most enjoyable of part. We worked as a team, respected each other, and got the job done at the end of the day.

Very productive place to work with a lot of great people!
Medical Assembler (Current Employee), Queensbury, NYNovember 24, 2013
Pros: paid 30 min lunches, positive environment, best benefits available.
Cons: strict on temporary employees
This job is a very nice laid back type of job. You are put in your own section of the mill and you work away for 8 hours a day. Every job there is full-time, I was asked if I wanted overtime over the weekend almost every week. It was mostly voluntarily overtime, but when people didn't sign up or the teams numbers were down it would be forced overtime, which is okay when you see your paycheck. The pay there is very decent. Unfortuntly, the only way of getting into Bard is through a temporary staffing agency, so EVERYONE starts off as a temp. now. The contract with the agency is three months, so after the three months they will look into how you performers and possibly be permanent. You are not isolated in your work, it is a open environment with many employees which are nice, so you can talk all day to them and will not get yelled at by management. Most of the managers there were good, some were strict because they are forced to be strict because they have to keep up with the numbers, if not, goodbye manager. If you do get the job be very carefull, as a temp they will let you go for anything! be there on time everyday and just do what your told, do anything out of there policy and you will be fired, we have all seen it happen. You do not get any warnings. Unless you are late they have a three strike policy for that. It is a job to look forward to!! You can apply through Intregrated Stafffing in Glens Falls, NY.

Productive and a good environment to be employed at
Hematuria Winder (Former Employee), Moncks Corner, SCSeptember 16, 2013
Pros: they waited so long to make me permanent
Cons: i learned a lot from here and i didn't want to leave.
A typical day at work is winding wire around 48 catheters on every rack. I learned to wind wire and stamp appropiate names on each catheter. My co-workers was very supportive and friendly. The hardest part of my job is getting the job done in a matter of time, when someone is absent for that day. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my co-workers and meeting new people.
