It started out great, I came to work and trained and everything was good and bright, but over time the demons came out and management decided not to train me and then openly belittle and threaten me.
I became physically ill by the end of it and shut down mentally. Leaving was the best choice I made regarding the place. My advice is to get a job elsewhere and just don't show up anymore. They are used to it.
Dealing with day shift management, supervisors, and team leads. They are all on the buddy system and it makes it rough for the hard working employees there.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Catalent Pharma Solutions?
Only work here if you absolutely need to and even then only use it as a springboard to something better. Acting lessons so you can kiss up to management will get you everything, not working however, that doesn't mean anything to management.
When you leave, don't tell them if you don't want armed security to more or less force you out the door as soon as you let them know. Just don't show up, they do the same to you anyway.
If you are a honest hard worker you get treated very badly. My team leads husband talked down to me and even called me names. I was so glad when he felled his random drug test and got fired for taking his wife's pain medication. (But they told him he could come back in a year). Hopefully I can find another job by then.
What advice would you give the CEO of Catalent Pharma Solutions about how to improve it?
Run like h#ll away from Catalent! Run fast and run far. Run away and never turn back. Run like h#ll away from Catalent!
I had a phone interview with an excellent recruiter in Illinois who really cared about me getting the position. She has been extremely helpful. A week later another coordinator from New Jersey set up my on-site interviews. She was very pleasant and helpful, as well and helped me to prepare for the on-site interview. She answered all my questions and really cared about me getting the position too! It takes a couple of weeks or so for the company to select candidates after the on-site interview. BUT the recruiters are great. They will communicate w/ you and help you. The on-site interview took a couple of hours. Security very quickly signed me in w/ the receptionist, who helped me out alot because I got lost and I met with supervisors. It’s straightforward. They’re nice but don’t waste time. No trick questions. The supervisor I spoke to was very intelligent and really cared about the machines and the product. He showed me videos and explained in detail the responsibilities of the position. He answered all of my questions and didn’t laugh at me. Very nice place w/ thoughtful people. I like them.
