Chemical Operator (Former Employee) –  Avon Lake, OHJuly 20, 2018
This was brand new chemical area that was being put in. There was much work building process. I was hoping for some overtime. However there was hardly any availability.

Good to learn extrusion
Technician (Former Employee) –  Corona, CAJuly 14, 2018
This company doesn't apply what they say in the job description, if you are a technician with 5 years of experience you don't know nothing , no place to grow need to kiss a..s to get a promotion. And you can be an engineer if you kiss a..s too, HR need more training , no respect for workers, supervisors have no experience, like i say this company is good for learning extrusion and the look for other place

productive work place, lots of events for team buildings, good place to work
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Wickliffe, OHJune 24, 2018
Good place to work, friendly, Learned a lot but usually had to learn most of the training on my own. Unorganized with the work details.
when top management wanted something changed, middle management did not enforce it and some people made changes and some people didn't. Later caused miscommunication with clients.
Love the work and professional atmosphere.
Pros
Friendly place
Cons
extremely fast paced, and work is to much to handle for one person, . Lack of training and have to train yourself most of the time.

Stable company to work for.
Lab Tech (Current Employee) –  Painsville, OHJune 11, 2018
Stable company to work for, but not many different ladders to climb. Can lead to some career stagnation especially with the age of most of the employees (very young so they have a long time in their role).

must have a degree
Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Wickliffe, OH 44092May 29, 2018
Without a degree there is nowhere to advance. Whether or not you have been with the company or not. There is very little room for advancement without a bachelors degree.
Pros
culture is good
Cons
no room for advancement

Nice People
Internship (Current Employee) –  Wickliffe, OHMay 17, 2018
I had an internship there and they pay you well. The people are very nice. I learned a lot about corporate America and how to adapt to change. Lubrizol is going through many changes so there has been a lot of changes to the status quo and varies across departments. However, the departments are siloed.

Good for a starter job
Blend Test Services - Blender (Current Employee) –  Wickliffe, OHMay 4, 2018
No overtime and you have to be a contractor for at least 2 years with no benefits. Work is slow paced and management is unexperienced and behind the times when it comes to safety culture. Unless you are 21-24 and starting your first real job.....look at other options. Pay is 14-18 to start as well.
Pros
easy, clean
Cons
Management, No overtime, immature atmosphere

Still employed as of this date
Chemical Operator (Current Employee) –  Painesville, OHMarch 8, 2018
Lubrizol is a great opportunity for a young person to start and long and well paid carrier. Very safety oriented and employee minded. The most difficult function is the rotating shifts in production.

I wouldn't recommend this place to friend
Level "A" Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Bryan, TXFebruary 10, 2018
Wont ever apply again, shift work is great but where in this industry did we loose the value of there employees working safely? Working in harsh and very face pace environment which the only thing that matters is numbers and product, nothing about the employees.
Pros
Poor Management/ Harsh environment

Disposable Temps
Dipping Technician (Former Employee) –  Victor, MTFebruary 8, 2018
Over the past year multiple temps were hired and disposed of. It's more economically viable for Vesta to hire a temp, dangle the carrot of full time, overwork them (as opposed to their full time employees) and then discontinue instead of hiring on. Training reflects that; why do a good job training when you're going to dispose of the person anyway once their 500 hours are up. I would ask a question and either the response would be "I don't know" (aka figure it out for yourself) or an answer that didn't apply.
Pros
pay
Cons
hours, absent management, disingenuous hiring practices

"Used to be good"
AWS/DevOps Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHFebruary 6, 2018
management would rather move an employee to another area than let them go, all lab technicians have their own desks, employees have a relaxed composure because of relaxed management, it's work at your own pace most of the time, lots of friendly folks, little to no sense of hierarchy between employees - even as a contractor the employees made me feel part of the group
