Scientist III (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NCJuly 13, 2018
It would be a great place to work if management was better. People really enjoy their co-workers but it's the supervision that causes the most problems.

Youre a temp for years
Packaging, Inspector (Former Employee) –  Greenville, NCMay 29, 2018
Before you can get hired to patheon you have to go through a temporary service. Temporary services will hold you as a temporary employee for years before they hire you. The job is easy and boring and tedious. You have to pay alot of attention to detail.
They give over time if you get along with the team leaders or supervisors. You get lots of perks if you are first shift but third shift gets the aftermath, so try for first shift. The hardest part of the job is staying awake. Men do all the heavy lifting, women get the easy jobs.

A real learning experience.
Pharmaceutical Inspector/Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Greenville, NCMay 27, 2018
A typical day consisted of sitting in a very cold room inspecting medicine vials for cracks,broken seals,glass and discolorations.you also had to constantly wipe down stations whenever switching batches to prevent contaminations . when packing you had to make sure evry product was labeled properly along with making sure exp dates and lot numbers were sufficient to the order. These were very important.
Pros
learning abilities
Cons
no mistakes

Interactive work space
Human Resource Intern (Former Employee) –  Manatí Municipio, PRMay 3, 2018
During my time in Patheon, I got the opportunity to be expose to diffrent areas in the HR Department, such as desciplinary actions, hiring process, new hire presentations (weekly), explaing the benefits that every regular employee has, audit HR files, audit security entrance versus time sheets, investigate diffrent situations in other departments that requieres HR atrention, among other responsabilities. It was an environment where every department interacts, knows and understand each responsabilities and respected the time of each other. It was a very interactive enviornment, every department understood that in order to do their job they needed help form their co workers. It was a chain reaction that everyone understood and respected.

Look elsewhere first
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NCJanuary 5, 2018
This job is ok... If you get on as a temp get comfortable as being a temp especially if you’re hired for inspection/packaging it could take anywhere from 1 to 10 years to get from under the temp service! Other departments around you, 6 months or more maybe even less you can come in at the same time and it could take them 6 months to get hired and in the departments I mentioned could take you years. It’s a depressing struggle and unfair when they did nothing but be hired for a different department
Pros
Relaxed, great leads
Cons
Being a temp.. no benefits

Not fair to minorities
Senior Quality Associate (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NCAugust 30, 2017
Not challenging enough and lack of career advancement opportunites. Too much who you know network and not what you know. Too much lack of transparency and lack of communication.

Lab Analyst I (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NC 27834August 25, 2017
A great place to get started and if you can meet the right people can advance quickly. Like with any jobs has its up and downs and stressful moments. But wonder compensation plans and incentives to be an employee here.
