MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Alsip, IL – July 17, 2017
I was recently employed at Griffith Laboratories, for almost 15 years. During my time with the Griffith family, I would definitely have to say I enjoyed the ride. The entire company is based upon family and personal growth. If I was still living in the immediate area, I would probably consider employment there again.
Everyone is like family.. You have a name and not just a punch number..
Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Alsip, IL – February 1, 2017
The typical day at Griffith Laboratories is following routine and safety measurements. The key to staying on task and following proper protocol, is being productive at all times. I have learned that attending trainings and brief meetings with co-workers help everyone work collaboratively and efficiently. One of the most challenging part of my day as a forklift driver is staying physically active throughout the day. It requires a lot of energy and strength to operate heavy machinery. I enjoy gaining knowledge related to my job title, for this helps me to work effectively throughout the day.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Alsip, IL – April 10, 2016
Has its season for productivity and also its season for being a little slower. Co-workers were all very experienced and friendly. Had no problems answering any of your questions. Biggest downside was the management. Needed more experience in communicating well with others. This review is of course for just this department which is the Quality department.
Very good benefits if you got hired on
Had to always cover another shift, Time it took to get hired on
o IT Intern (Former Employee) – Alsip, IL – September 20, 2015
I was provided necessary hands on training and allowed to manage things on my own. After initial training they let me do things in various areas independently. Only when I has some doubts, I got necessary help. this helped me to consolidate my technical learning I also got to experience real life situation and imbibe how things happen in live company situations.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Chicago – September 8, 2015
The enjoyable part of my job at Griffith Laboratories was that i worked by myself nobody didn't have to tell me what to do and it got alot of breaks. A liked how i didn't have to walk alot around the work area.
assembler/ packager (Former Employee) – Alsip, IL – July 16, 2015
Very down to earth managers and supervisors, always willing to give advice and promote employee confidence, good work environment, healthy employer employee relationships, very encouraging environment over all.
PC Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Alsip, Illinois – January 14, 2015
Griffith laboratories provided me with an awesome opportunity to learn so much more regarding IT; some networking experience, multiple imaging utilizes, new-hire, security changes and separation experience. Day to day I was able to gain experience in several different applications so no particular day was ever the same. Griffith is a global company so I was able to interact with teams from Canada, Mexico and Asia to solve issues that were occurring in all locations which in turn provided me with the ability to interact with networking engineers, etc. The most enjoyable part of Griffith was the culture of upward mobility that was promoted from the team including my supervisor. If there was an issue that occurred and i was not aware of the resolution my manager had all faith that i could resolve with little to no assistance.
Production operator (Current Employee) – Alsip – January 9, 2015
It was a great place to work at one time. Now it is very ripe with favoritism. The place is way too top heavy. It is set for a collision course, but upper management is being lied to,and don't see it. They give out promotions for no apparent reason, while they freeze the hourly salaries.
The place is profitable
Too bad the little guy doesn't get any of it. Not even a raise
Productive and environment was good for working. Overtime whenever we wanted to work.
Mixer Operator (Former Employee) – Lithonia, GA – September 17, 2012
A typical day consisted of me gathering ingredients to be mixed and packaged. Once the machine had finished this task, I then loaded the contents onto crates and used plastic wrap to wrap the pile and signaled for the fork lift driver to get the pile. This job prepared me to have the ability to work by myself. Management was typical. They worked with a quota that we all had to meet on a weekly basis which we usually did. Co-workers were good workers and helped out when needed. There was really nothing difficult about the job. If I had to say something it would be withstanding the heat from the machines. The most enjoyable part of my previous job was that I was held responsible for completing a job and I had to hold myself accountable for completing a certain amount of production and I love to be challenged.
