Outstanding Company
Designer (Former Employee), Irving, TXDecember 4, 2014
Management and co-workers are the best.
Corporate decides at will who they cut in times of economic hardship with little or no thought as to damage done to individuals.

Excellent Place Of Employment

Pros: healthcare, excellent pay

My time at VWR began in the accounts payable department, where I learned how to interact with customers local and International. I was an account expense clerk doing check runs, expense reports and customer service. I also was able to work in the inventory control department where I was able to monitor inventory coming in and leaving the building. I – more... was able to perform customer service in this department solving incoming problems of vendors. – less

Family friendly, good benefits, good cause. Lots of dysfunction
Regulatory Affairs Manager (Current Employee), Rochester, NYNovember 28, 2014
VWR would be a great company to work for if it weren't for their insatiable drive for explosive growth by any and all means possible. They have great infrastructure but are so fractured by competing priorities that teams don't work well together.

Inventory Management Specialist (Current Employee), Radnor, PANovember 12, 2014
Pros: meeting people from all over the world
Cons: poor communication between management and workers
Good stepping stone. Co workers were ok knowledgeable of job. Hardest part of job was to not engage in the politics or let them get you down. Most enjoyable part of the job was satisfying the customer and enhancing the reputation of the company.

Key to doing well is being able to connect with internal sales reps, external vendor reps while developing working relationships with customers. Most deals are transactional but need to develop long term customer business strategies.

Sales Support Specialist (Former Employee), Batavia, ILSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: excellent training program.
I was very impressed with the training program provided by VWR International. It is second to none and I now have the same expectation for future employment after moving further away now that I am ready to get back to work after being an at home mom.

Highly recommended!!

Boring, slow, mind numbing second class citizen work
Working at Intel (Current Employee), Hillsboro ORAugust 23, 2014
Pros: you get exercise depending on your location
Cons: pay sucks, your peers are a-holes, zero brain usage
You'd think working at Intel was fun. The idea is anyway, the job is, well... let's just say it's not very challenging work.

Intel employees have tunnel vision, meaning, they act like robots who can't change their normal routine going from place to place. They may have masters degrees but ended up with zero social skills. So they get in your way a – more... lot. God forbid a door breaks, they won't know where to detour.

Then there's the dbags who do notice you and treat you like you're there to pick up after them like a janitor. Yeah, that's not what we are hired to do. Construction workers are also sloppy at times but they leave garbage around whether you're there or not. I suppose that comes with the territory.

Did I mention this job requires zero brain activity? No computer skills needed folks. If you're dumber than a box of rocks and have your GED, this job might be perfect for you.

Benefits kick in after 90 days. Pay is low but what do you expect for the job. Whoever designed the 'uniform' needs a new set of eyes.

This is the kind of job high school kids would love to have vs working fast food. – less

Sales / Customer SAP Expert (Former Employee), Batavia ILJuly 21, 2014
Pros: benefits, decent salary, learning new system
Cons: working late, limited team interactions
VWR customer care department is hands on. You deal with the customers exclusively and learn per phone call. There are opportunity to work in other specific customer call environments. Many people who started out on phones worked their way into management roles and sales positions. It makes use of your customer service skills and you have to work through – more... issues. Patience is needed. – less
