    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours Great for entry level positions Promote from within for management positions Exponential growth in the past few years

    Cons

    Pay is well below average High turnover rate IT systems are so bad that there are massive productivity losses on a regular basis Not willing to expand support services because they are non-revenue generating

    Advice to Management

    The direction and leadership of the company is great, but high turnover rates due to low pay are starting to stifle growth. The time, energy, and money being spent on training easily justifies increasing pay for good employees rather than letting them walk out the door and become superstars at another company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories.

    Interview

    Pretty basic interview. Had similar questions from human resources, technical management, and department management. Each interview lasted about 45 minutes. As entry level there weren't any difficult technical questions, mostly personality type questions. If you are fresh out of school they will give you a chance as long as you didn't throw up any red flags.
