Chemist III (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – July 21, 2017
Par drove a once mega successful manufacturing plant straight into the ground. They did not want to run a commodity generic pharmaceutical company, and therefore, no interest in keeping it in their portfolio
QC Infrastructure Supervisor, Tablets (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – May 25, 2017
Competitive environment for a large generic drug company. Lab spaces were well equipped (a bit aged for my tastes at an average instrument age of 10-15 years) Good management and a safe work environment.
Awesome place to work with great benefits and inner company promotions.
Warehouse Manager/ scheduling (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – January 23, 2017
Was a great place to work until the business was sold in 2007. I started in returns for about 6 months, was moved to stocking and order picking, and advanced to asst manager and then warehouse manager in charge of 43 direct reports at the end of my 19 years where I then moved into scheduling production of pharmaceuticals.
Liquids Packaging Technician III (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – January 19, 2017
Any manufacturing position will require a level of flexibility based on supply and demand. Wages are competitive and benefits are great. There are some physical requirements base on job position but nothing to strenuous. Overall it is a good place to work.
Liquids Packaging Operator 1 (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – June 29, 2016
I enjoyed this job. Good pay for my qualifications. They have a fairly good training program for learning new things. Management did not set unattainable goals. When the company reduced its workforce, they gave impacted employees a severance package (which gave us benefits and money to pay bills, while applying for new jobs.)
Liquids Operator (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – June 11, 2016
coming in dressing out to scrubs and waiting on if we make our goal or not we can go home on time. you have to be %100 professional at all times and be very careful with your job profomance. management sometimes take the wrong sides to help the business stay successful. co-workers are content and what they do and most were very old. hardest part of the job was trying to please management. the most enjoyable time was being away from the lines when we were being awarded for our hard work.
healthcare was GREAT shifts were good
HR management could've been a lot better and having a system where skill set is the most important
Enjoyable job with room to advance to higher up positions
Distribution Operator II (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – May 19, 2016
Benefits, pay and raises are good when the company is on the up and up. There has been some bad business decisions here recently so the company is starting to cut back on its work force. When operating at full capacity the work is steady paced and interesting, employees behave more like a family instead of a work crew. It can be a really enjoyable place to work.
Distribution Center has an hour lunch vs everyone else has 30 minutes
The company is starting to tank so there is a loss of jobs.
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Huntsville, AL – February 26, 2016
The biggest problem lately with Qualitest is that with all of the acquisitions and mergers by corporate, almost no department outside of manufacturing feels safe. There is no sense of loyalty by upper management and they do not seem to give a second thought to layoffs. This is a big change from Qualitest prior to Endo. At that time, if you came in and performed your job, you had a job and didn't have to worry about it. Now, there seems to be constant worry among the workforce.
