Test Technician (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – April 5, 2017
during my time with the Exova family in warren you always felt like you wanted to go the extra mile in everything you did. It was that family feeling and safe environment that just gave you that i really like my job and want to be at work because they will take care of you and will give you as much as you give them. five star rating in my books.

Difficult but quit interesting, learning and accepting daily challenges. accepting bad comment and be able to used it for better person, appreciating good comments and to be key for future challenges. Well professional kind of managing who give full support at all times. co-workers who work as one big great team for on goal of being success at the end.The hardest part of job is if you make small or big mistake. that can affect to team and quality of managment.the most enjoyable part is to accepting every hard challenges. and when at the end you found your self that you give your best and yout got a possitive result.

Sr. Chemist (Former Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – June 20, 2015
Each day is rewarded with good results. They allow sufficient time to analyze a sample. You may be very busy due to reviewing many SOP's or safety meeting. The GMP is an important factor of every instrument you have to pay attention.
manager (Former Employee) – Middle East – September 18, 2014
I had the misfortune to work for Exova in the Middle East. They head hunted me from my home country, how I wish now that I'd ignored their advances.
So poorly managed its untrue, they have (or should I say had) some great people working there....these have all left due to "finances" basically the staff are made to suffer due to ludicrous senior management decisions.
My advice would be avoid this company at all costs, wherever in the world it may be. They are on a slide and I don't see them.pulling through.
Better off joining element testing, far superior in every way.
Test Technician (Former Employee) – Michigan – April 18, 2014
Working 7 days a week, minimal pay, management has no clue about the testing industry. They make promises to customer engineers they can't keep. Understaffed and overworked. Most employees have little training, Testing is spotty at best. You have to twist an arm to get any new, or calibrated equipment. Very hard to do a job without the tools to do the job.
What a stress filled place to work. $0.30 raise every 2 years if your lucky.
As soon as they don't need you anymore that's it.
Low pay, stressfull, oblivious managment, high turnover, lack of equip.
Hot Tester/Engine Tester (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – July 26, 2013
A typical day at work would start with a daily morning meeting with your entire shift consisting of the same things being said everyday supervisors showing favoritism to certain people then you hit the floor and test engines at your assigned cell/work area steady fast paced work 1 20 minute lunch at noon and thats it then none stop work till your shift ends. I learned alot about Engines and to quickly diagnose problems with electrical and mechanical p[roblems. Co Workers 90% of them are immature and dont take their job seriously supervisors do not care what is or inst your fault or out of your hands its a somebodys gonna be in trouble! the hardest part of the job is getting severe burns and permanent scars along with the heat and engine fumes. And for ME the most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to be able to work 7 days a week 12.50 an hour monday thru friday then saturdays time and a half and sundays double time and a half so if your about your money and need alot of it the opportunity to have large checks were there but this buisness is currently losing its production cutting employees and is on the verge of losing their contract with GM due to Lack or exp at every level Poor work ethics
Temp, One 20 min lunch throughout any 8-12 hour shift, no healthcare, no advancement
Executive VP Aerospace - Americas (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 12, 2012
Exova is a horrible place to work. The senior leadership (CEO and President) completely destroyed autonomy and any sense of value, accomplishment at the EVP and GM levels. It is not a company that helps their employees grow.
poor salaries, no recognition, no team building abitities
UT inspector - level II (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 10, 2012
Overall I enjoyed my job and found it interesting and challenging. The only issue I had was with the schedule and the lack of any notice when the expected hours of our work week would change. Also, we would almost never know until the last minute if weekends would be required. All in all a good experience was had and valuable knowledge gained in the UT field.
