Meat Grinder for Fresh Graduates to Gain Experience
Laboratory Analyst (Former Employee) – Scottsville, KY – September 21, 2017
The pay is abysmal for them requiring trained scientists. The hours are lousy, but that comes with almost all quality control positions. Your immediate manager might be awesome, but everyone above them is in the Pacific north west and they NEVER pay for repairs and new equipment. It ends up feeling like the managers don't mind throwing underpaid bodies at problems instead of actually investing in the company and its employees. Almost all of my coworkers either got their experience there and left in a year, or they stayed longer while working on a second degree to try to find a better job. It is not a place to stay, but if you need the experience, you can get through this meat grinder for a year. At least you're working with other young people and cracking jokes. Also, there's no room for advancement, so it's not like the pay gets better.
Low pay, no advancement, not much learning, no investment from corporate
