Production Operator (Former Employee) says"Work was hard and physical, yet fun for me. My trainer was a very good worker, and made sure I became so as well. Once given to an assigned group. Many were reluctant to show me the ropes.. I remained persistent all the same and won few people over for the most part. Management claimed open door , but I never found it that way. I learned a lot about industrial and chemical safety. The hardest part of the job was adjusting from alternating days from one week to nights the next. These were 12 hour days 4 days on 4 days off The most enjoyable part was all of the hands on waste water treatment and how safely perform chemical handling.constant learning . some of the peoplenot being able to schedule vacations, take what you can get."

OPERAIA - TECNICO DI LABORATORIO (Former Employee) says"L'attività lavorativa era molto dinamica e caratterizzata da una grande richiesta di lavoro sia in laboratorio che in produzione. La soddisfazione del cliente aveva un ruolo determinante per la qualità dei prodotti e per l'atmosfera lavorativa. Poca attenzione, però, all'inquadramento contrattuale corretto di ciascun dipendente e scarse possibilità di crescita professionale per i ruoli minori. Complessivamente una buona azienda"
