Pretty Chaotic work environment, lab is the last check for production. Any issues? Blame the lab instead of fixing problems. Extremely micromanaged and not in a good way. Changes to procedures without knowing, understaffed in areas of plant. Unless you are staying in food beverage industry, most tests are obsolete and data recording methods need to be updated for transferring into other labs. (no GC, or HPLC, or Mass spec like in most other labs) For the most part other techs found to be pretentious, management was to arrogant to admit errors, even when proved wrong. lots of overtime can be a good thing can be a bad thing, easy to make lots of money if single, but kiss your family goodbye.
I got my experience and left the company to a better job,
paid breaks, shift diffrential
12 hour shift, drafted overtime.
