Challenging environment with lots of opportunities for daily growth in knowledge of testing environment. Can be very stressful at times with multiple jobs to attend and limited staffing. Long hours during the construction season and daily activities can change hourly based on contractor needs
A materials testing company that attempts to have a soul

The company is fighting against cut-throat competitors. As a result, hours are long and unpredictable. Furthermore, the company is mired by a financial officer who I believe is erring on the side of being too conservative when it comes to investing, not only in talent but also in equipment. As a result, vehicles and computers are out of date. Personnel leave after only a few years to pursue higher-paying jobs from contractors and the public sector. That being said, insurance and other benefits are excellent.
