    Great group of people to work with and work for. The company is large so there's lots of room to move around or upward if you're hard working. It's an international company which allows for transfers to other parts of the world if that interests you. Benefits are average.


    As a consulting company most jobs require travel. Some projects are 1-2 years long which can require A LOT of time on the road. For some folks this is a positive and it was for me as well in the beginning but it can be draining after several years. The company (my sector) is very top heavy and the folks at the top of paid well but the lower and mid level employees are not. Moving into leadership roles can also be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to your younger and mid level staff. Take the time to recognize those with potential and invest in them through their salary, training, and encouragement. Doing these things will likely result in very loyal employees who appreciate and respect the culture you are trying to maintain.

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alabaster, AL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through other source – interviewed at Cardno (Alabaster, AL) in May 2015.


    My resume was forwarded to Cardno ATC's Laboratory Supervisor from one of the Internet Job boards and I received an e-mail inviting me for an interview. I waited one week before my interview appointment. During my wait time I sent e-mails to him asking more about the position and he quickly replied and answered all questions in great detail.

    Interview Questions

    • To start, they wanted me to tell them more about myself. How much would you like to be paid an hour? What Science classes have you taken? They described the job in great detail and are willing to teach everything necessary to succeed in the job. They informed me that they are currently in the middle of a company merge. Also that certifications as needed will be paid for by the company.   Answer Question
