Management and HR Department need to be worked on.

PTO and paid holidays.

Fine for those learning chemistry
SENIOR ANALYTICAL CHEMIST (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, NCNovember 20, 2017
Not the most exciting career. No real room for advancement. If you are just starting out in the chemistry world it is a good way to get your foot in the door, but that is all it is good for. No real raise oppurtunities and do not expect the owner to take any interest in his employees. Looks for any reason to be stingy on pay.

Really look somewhere else first if this is the only position to obtain in Wilmington, NC... not worth it. Very low salary with high cost of living.
Pros
Bonus pay or Vacation time with weekend work
Cons
No room for advancement, Very Low Pay, Repeditive Work

Good place to start
Chemist I (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, NCSeptember 19, 2017
Great place to start as an entry level employee out of college. Not much room for advancement within the company. Many of the higher positions are filled by employees who have been there much longer than I would intend to be. No financial gain is received for moving into a more stressful and involved work environment. The experience is nice, but the pay is below par. While individual managers can be exceptional, overall management is extremely disorganized and micromanaging happens at a high level. One week one manager is my boss when two months down the road they get reassigned to a different lab, and the old manager takes over again. No clear vision on where the company is heading. Outdated equipment and methodological recording systems, makes it feel like it is 1980 instead of 2017. This seems to be getting an upgrade, but knowing this company that may take tens of years to fully happen.
Pros
Experience
Cons
LOW pay, unorganized work environment, no room for advancement

Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, NCMarch 2, 2016
Nice employee's to work with. Hand full of over paid and rest under paid. Little to no chance for advancement. Micromanagement at it's best, poor management support, some employee's get special treatment & others make up for it. Always advertising/hiring due to turnover rate for employee's.

low pay, micromanagement

Very low pay for industry, but a great place to start out
Analytical Chemist (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, NCJuly 23, 2015
I thoroughly enjoyed working here. I was expected to work hard and had great relationships with my coworkers and boss. I ended up leaving because other analysts were slacking with their work and I was expected to make up for their slack. When I talked with my supervisor about it, nothing was done to fix the problem. There are some very hard workers here, but there are also workers who use that to their advantage and slack off.Ultimately, it came down to money.

There is not a lot of room for growth, but its a great place to start out and get the experience needed to make a career in this field.
Pros
Pay for weekend work, good structure and communication
Cons
Underpaid, no room for growth
