Lab is a terrible department they let people go left and right. Big turn around manager sucks and lab supervisor is an idiot doessh doesn't know what she's doing.As for the lead he knows nothing and does nothing but dump samples and expects everyone to do his job.Theres to much favoritism and everyone gets treated differently.they let good hard working people go and keep the idiots there.

Good pay scale. Technicians recieve ZERO training from what ive seen in the 2 years ive been employed here. Ive had more training on Cat product working for other compainies in the area. Kinda ironic since cashman is a CAT dealer. The place has a very union kinda feel, lots of bosses to please, and very very few supervisors or managers that are talented in the trades or able to help their employees grow. Dont expect to get hired unless you know somebody that works there, who you are related to or friends with matters far more than experience, work ethic, skills, etc. Good opportunity for overtime when they have work but expect to be sent home early the second it gets slow.
good company to work for, enjoyed my coworkers. everyone worked hard to get the jobs completed. Bosses had a open door policy, worked well with me if my son was sick and had to leave early. Loved the gave raises based on job performance
Answering phone, screening calls. Data input of yard personnel hours. Maintained USCG monthly data distributed to all Vessels. I learned about the Barge Rental & Scrap business. Also, got involved in procurement. The computer work was the most enjoyable of the job. Only thing I could say was hard, is not having enough to do to stay occupied.
Various positions (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV. – December 20, 2011
I initially started with Cashman equipment as an outside yard person until I graduated Electronics School. After Graduation, I decided to stay with them because of the people and opportunities for training and advancement. Wages & Benefits were good,
Great 8-5 job. Almost always around positive people. It provides a great opportunity to experience and learn about teamwork! Management has been rocky as they are going through a change but otherwise its very good. The job could be stressful when very busy but it was never extremely difficult. Being around people who had fun and could work consistently really made this job great!
Good benefits, good compensation, managers are sometimes not very competent, the whole six sigma thing is garbage, but at least it gives some very undeserving people a chance to make lots of money at the expense of cutting out the fat. However, sometimes that fat really needs to be there since a job that is designed for three people to do efficiently and effectively should be done by three people and not just one person at part-time...

Great company to work for. A company that offers the right training to their employees and cares for them performing their tasks at hand. I learned a lot here. The chances of advancement are based on what has been learned and the rewards are great.
Extremely small lab with more samples than it can hold.
Laboratory Technologist and Team Lead (Former Employee) – Sparks, NV – June 17, 2014
Working here was not bad but it was mostly nothing but machine work; no real chemistry required. The hardest part of the job was working under a manager who had no science background and didn't know any of the procedures in the lab because he was from another department that had to be downsized. The most enjoyable part was that it was quiet and easy going work.
