Good first job, great benefits, underpays
Chemist II (Current Employee) – Mooresville, NC – September 13, 2017
I started working in the qc lab straight out of college and the pay was low but they trained me how to do run many instruments that will benefit me later in my career (hplc, gc, ftir, flame aa). Good insurance at a really low price, good 401k, vacation and sick time off, nice break room. HOWEVER pay is lower than at other similar places and promotions are not that common in the quality department. I feel because you are getting good benefits, the company thinks they can be cheaper on the pay but I guess it's a trade off. They are also EXTREMELY busy, very fast paced environment with plenty of overtime to offer; they may make you work overtime whether you want to or not when things get crazy. I have been here 5 years now and I am ready to move on, but good starting job for experience.
Great insurance, 401k, wellness program
Below average pay, very busy
