Technician (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – February 20, 2017
Things have changed a bunch at VWR. The operations group now reports thru people managers instead of sales managers. Chandler site management has evolved and things are more stable. There will be some big growth with in this company soon because their customer is growing in the semiconductor business in south Chandler. The job is easy and coworkers are great. I like the fact that there is a café on site. Benefits are pretty good here.

Honestly you never knew if it was going to be a busy day or not. Near the end of my three years it got to the point where I didn't know what my job was any more, because I had so many. The management did not want to listen to the people and would never fallow through on ideas. There was also unfair treatment some people would get scolded by some managers and some would get away with everything. I felt I had to pick up slack from other workers and was used and abused. They expected more out of some people then others. the management had issues with confronting people and treated the good employees bad.
some good people, interesting company, good dental, 2 15 min breaks, 30 min lunches
poor managment, expensive & bad health insurance, to much put on employees
Safety Specialist for the Western Zone (Former Employee) – West Coast of the United States – January 26, 2017
When the company was sold to a Venture Capitalist, management change made it a totally different company, and not a good company to work for. They brought in incompetent management, and my division was eliminated.

A typical day at work is fun and challenging. Learning new things and sharing what you have learned is part of the team building that goes on at VWR, which is one of the things that make VWR such a great company.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Visalia, CA – December 27, 2016
Company doesn't value its employees for the most part. Only a select few yes men are hand picked to promote despite their work ethics. Other than that, there is very little room for advancement. Expect long mandatory hours. During the summer 11-12 hour days are regular. Very few long term employees due to low wages and under appreciation.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Bridgeport, NJ 08014 – December 1, 2016
I love working at VWR. It's definitely a learning environment where everyone helps everyone. Everyone respects everyone as well. Management is very knowledgeable and always willing to help. The pay is excellent and the vacation time offered is excellent too.
Free food, flexible schedule, great company
