Fantastic workplace with many opportunities
Porometer Technician (Former Employee) – Cornelia, GA – February 11, 2014
A typical day while working on research at TenCate was filled with curiosity and rigorous application of the scientific method; a great deal of autonomy was given to me, but I also had to produce results. Hard work, a great attitude, and fantastic results are rewarded well at TenCate. When I first took my internship at TenCate, I was a green and untested worker in the field of technical work. Now I have gained a stronger sense of confidence, prioritization skills, and a greater understanding of corporate culture and business tact. Throughout my stay with TenCate, I found all of my fellow employees from the top to the bottom to be genuinely wonderful people. The hardest part of my job was stress management; the leap from theory and clear direction in college to the demanding requirements of industry was a tall one. I never cracked under the pressure, and always yielded results, but it was an arduous journey. The most enjoyable part of my job was gaining the ability to tackle any situation and learning to use my stress and "extra fuel" for completed required tasks.
Great people, good benefits, relatively high pay
the only place hourly people can go outside is a smoking area, no windows anywhere
