SVP HR (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 10, 2018
Great place to work, dedicated employees - people who care about what they do. The customer is at the center of it all. Great opportunities for training and development, tuition reimbursement, ability to grow and have a great career.
Management (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 10, 2018
The location I work at is great! I have a team who values what we do as a company and is always looking for ways to improve things. I have developed strong lasting relationships and believe in our mission to be a "trusted and responsive food safety partner".
Minimally staffed company with emphasize on fast turn around
Microbiology Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 5, 2018
This company has provided a way to make ends meet and if you're fresh out of college, you'll probably be able to find work here because they're continuously cycling through staff. The hours are long because the company is minimally staffed, and will typically be very late. The pay is lower tiered, and the primary focus here is to have fast turn around. That often comes at the expense of the quality of tests. Very outdated software system and will virtually handwrite everything on paper, then transcribe that to a computer system. Half of the day is spent on paperwork at this company and they refuse to upgrade the inefficient system. The staff on the technician level are friendly and is probably the only positive aspect about the company. With that being said, undereducated and poor performing staff members will be promoted because of the contacts and favoritism shown. The focus here is fast turn around and have feasible deniability when that comes at the expense of quality. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone that has the means and time to apply somewhere else.
Positions Always Available
Underpaid, minimum staff, lack of effective training, outdated software, overall negative perception / mentality company wide
Data Entry Technician (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – May 24, 2018
Love the people at this job but the hours were long and they really drag on. It takes forever to get promoted into a higher paying position and even then the pay isn’t always that great. They expect salaried positions to work so much that it isn’t even worth it.
Tech (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – April 25, 2018
You will learn a lot. However, management is all about you putting hours no matter what. You will be underpaid and your schedule will be horrible, you have to be at least 3 years in the company to get a nice schedule which will always include weekends. I feel that there is no opportunity for advancement and management will always hand pick whoever they want to promote.
Lab Technician 1 (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 13, 2017
There is always work at FSNS and it never runs out which is good! It keeps you busy and the management staff is really flexible with your schedule. At food safety you will for sure get good experience and the people there are amazing!
Free lunches sometimes and break room always has donuts
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 30, 2017
There should have been much more training for the role I was in and the pay is below average for similar companies and roles. However, the benefits are great and the President of the company is great to work for
I loved my work and the people I spoke with every day.
Long hours, Low pay. Get the experience and leave.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Covington, GA – July 4, 2017
It is a good beginner job for those needing experience to further their career. Do not get stuck here. Do not expect opportunities for progression unless you are willing to be demeaned and degraded by management. It does not matter how hard you work or how many hours over you stay. Management is condescending and if anything goes wrong it WILL be your fault. There is no sense of team and/ or community. It is the definition of a totalitarian work place. Again I will state it is a good place to get the experience and then exit as soon as possible!

Login Technician (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 27, 2017
This job places you in a very independent environment, it is not often that someone will be able to help you out if you are struggling. It is very fast paced and demanding. The management could be better.
Pathology Labratory Analyst (Current Employee) – Springdale, AR – May 4, 2017
Good place for refining micro techniques, fast paced, overloaded job duties, very short staffed, no verbal manager communication of any kind. Left up to each individual to learn without proper training, no appreciation or acknowledgement.
Senior Chemistry Technician (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX 78216 – April 24, 2017
Good people to work with but very unorganized as a business. Problems ranging from improper equipment/instrumentation to negative environment to conduct scientific tests. The "Laboratory" is a seventies auto garage that has been converted. So the problems that would arise, frequently do. Stressful work due to below the bar compensation. Always delayed work due to current system in place for processing samples.
