    I worked at Pace Analytical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hiring process was quick, I had an offer within two weeks of my contacting the company with an interest in a position. For anyone new to the area or in a life transition, this is a great option for getting a good job quickly. All of the Pace employees I was in contact with were professional, courteous, and genuine.

    I was a contract employee placed in a position with a well-regarded company in the local area. This position suited me and my skills well, offered me training opportunities, and the ability to work with new lab equipment. It was a term-limited contract, which gave me time to find a permanent position with another great Minnesota employer.

    Cons

    My position was a term-limited contract with no permanence. Due to this circumstance, I was unable to view Pace Analytical as a dependable employer as they could not guarantee a new placement once my contract was over.

    The vacation and sick time benefits were the poorest I have had in any job. Time is earned regardless of pay grade or position, but is based on years of service with only 6 days of vacation in year 1 (this has changed to 10 days recently). Earning 1.5 hours of sick per 80 hours worked makes it difficult to build up and results in tough decisions to make when one is sick and has not earned enough time.

    Advice to Management

    Make a more competitive benefits package if your aim is to compete for happy and dedicated employees in the Minneapolis-St. Paul job market.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pace Analytical (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Easy. Went in at the time I was scheduled and the hiring manager got to me fast. Everything was really relaxed, but you are expected to tell them everything about your research/job experience. Make sure you can talk about yourself and those things in detail.
