Packager/Assembler (Former Employee) – Holdrege, NE – January 18, 2019
I actually enjoyed working for BD. sure the hours were a lot, but they were never more than 3 days in a row. the schedule worked out lime this: 3 days on, 2 days off, 2 days on, 3 days off, basically it was every other: lets say today is Friday, if you worked today you would have next Friday off, but the Friday after that you would have back on, and so on, and so on.
maybe I was just an easy target, but many "friends" were giving me conflicting instructions on what line I was supposed to be on. I had no clue where I was supposed to be.

Quality Control Rework (Current Employee) – Holdrege, NE – January 12, 2019
The culture at BD is very positive; company decisions are made with the mindset of what is going to make our products the very best for customers, environment, and future.
My coworkers are awesome! There will always be a few sour apples no matter where you go, but the vast majority of people throughout the plant are caring and compassionate people.
Great pay, paid time off (for full time positions), no college degree needed for majority of positions, pretty good benifits (for full-time employees), cafiteria on site, and many opportunities to advance your career.
Vast amount of jobs are 12 hour shifts, no fresh meals provided during nightshift, majority of positions are constant standing, etc.
Assembly line worker (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – January 9, 2019
i was moved to fast paced automatic machine that required thousands of pieces hourly. i learned quickly and was to produce the minimum and sometimes set records to the production. until we had too much and they moved to another machine which sat me in an awkward position and hurt my back
Communications Intern (Former Employee) – Franklin Lakes, NJ – December 26, 2018
I worked at Becton Dickinson as a college summer intern and loved it there! Even though it was only three months, the people, the place, and the culture were fantastic. Everyone was nice, management was easy to work with. This is a serious work place, but they make it so you feel at home while you're there, and they actually care about you as an employee.
Claims Coordinator (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 25, 2018
I got a great manager which is always setting goals provided on the opinion of everyone on the team. We work numbers, so every day you need to meet at least a minimum but it is a reasonable goal. I enjoy working due that you can modify your schedule if needed for picking up kids at school or doctors appointments.
The people make the work environment fun. The task required is not very difficult and is manageable for anyone 18+ (no prior experience is required).
PACKAGING TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Mira Mesa, CA – December 17, 2018
The job is very repetitive and soon you may become bored of the orders assigned due to lack of variety. The job is very low stress which is very nice, but at the same time the environment is very fast paced to complete on average 6-8 orders a day. The people working make the job easier and manageable. You do get 2 paid breaks and a 30 minute lunch.
Clinical Education Specialist / Sales support (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – December 9, 2018
They will tell you 1-2 nights travel, It turns into 5-6 nights travel every week. They will tell you you have a certain geography and then it turns into your covering all US without any additional compensation. Besides doing Education you will end up doing a lot of the project managers work?? Dont think about questioning any policies because the retaliation from the managers is brutal ( They are worried info will get passed onto their bosses) . Your name will then be spoken amongst all the managers t/o the US and you will be known as a trouble maker. They find ways and reasons to NOT give you an Annual salary increase and or any bonus. If you happen to up sell on any account for any additional modules, Forget it... you dont get a PENNY but who does... the salesperson thats not even their anymore. Work your butt off, travel your butt off, do your work and the PM's work. If you have a family or grand kids... forget about them... you wont see them anymore. I have actually witnessed a manager speaking with a potential new hire stating travel is only 1-2 nights per week LIES LIES LIES!! Just be honest with people.. you eventually find out the truth and then your stuck in the job because then it looks like your job hopping. They get their claws in you and then make you suffer with unappreciated and tireless travel and work, When you get back to your hotel after your done working at the hospital all day or evening and also night shift...OH NO you don't, your not relaxing or sleeping after a hard day at the hospital 8-10 hrs,( Standing the whole time educating ) Its now time tomore... do project manager work on upcoming cases.( Why that becomes my job is beyond me) Thats right computer work and phone calls for at least 2 hours each night. Project managers will travel to the sites that are convenient for them. Just completely frustrating...JOB ADVANCEMENT..... NO NO NO! I had seen good people who new their jobs very well and would not get promoted after working 8 years and even with that they had to JUMP through hoops and do a GREAT deal of EXTRA work ( not getting paid for) to just prove worthiness.( Give me a break) working at least 50 hrs per week PLUS travel via airplane t/o the US all while your getting paid for 40 hrs. UPPER UPPER management swimming in money while we are doing all the work. So glad I spent time and money on getting my masters so I can be treated like dirt.Thanks for remembering us.. NOT!less
Management, lazy project managers, long hrs, EXTENSIVE travel
