    Pros

    Laxed as long as work is completed. Perfect to get lab experience on resume.

    Cons

    The pay scale is ridiculous and varies greatly from person to person in same dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Job responsibilities and workload doesn't reflect in pay.

    I have been working at Accutest Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Base pay was good and local operations were supportive.

    Cons

    Leadership and management had horrible communication and didn't care for employees. Everyone was managing up rather than listening to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training and support for employees will help show you are investing in them rather than just using them.

    Disappointing.

    I have been working at Accutest Laboratories

    Pros

    Good coworkers, flexible hours.

    Cons

    Insurance is awful, and exposure /risk isn't worth the low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay fairly. Offer insurance that doesn't cost employees so much money that having NO insurance is better.

    I worked at Accutest Laboratories

    Pros

    The lower level managers were all awesome and the people are all pretty relaxed and don't work too hard. People sort of come in whenever they want so long as they get work done. Nobody is really expected to go above and beyond, just do a bare minimum and you'll be fine.

    Cons

    Upper level management is annoying as heck and whenever they come in everyone has to pretend to work hard for a day. Kind of stingy with pay and raises. Jersey location is much stricter than MA location

    Former Employee - GC Analyst in Dayton, NJ

    I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Solid training that was easily transferable. I got to learn GC and data analysis which are important skills for an analytical chemist. I also got to learn about all the different departments and what they do for a large scale lab.

    Cons

    Terrible salary for a BS chemist, benefits didn't kick in until after working for a long time (6-12 months), little to no opportunities for personal growth and development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer your chemist a wage worthy of their education and skills. Encourage your employees to push themselves by offering opportunities to learn new things and cross training them with different departments.

    I have been working at Accutest Laboratories full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Accutest takes on people right out of college. If you are looking to build experience this place will provide that for you. Upward mobility is very good you can get promoted to a more responsible position within a year of starting. Flexible schedules. You can pick to work weekends, nights and etc. As long as you can work Accutest will find a schedule for you. A lot of opportunity for overtime.

    Accutest has branches all over US. People have been known to transfer if they wanted to.

    Cons

    High turn over rate really hurts every position. You can expect to train new people often. Responsibility is pushed on to the few who can perform. People rarely get fired for under performing. Aging equipment. High work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business model is understandable but it has it's downsides. Little pay, entry level hires and high work load will always result in high turnover, lower quality and low morale. You should plan accordingly. This business model benefits from structure. Set roles for everyone in department. Plans for rush work.

    I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They hardly ever fire anyone if they're competent. Free coffee all the time. Free Bagels on pay day. Peers can be a pleasure to work there. Finish your work and go home, leave work at the door.

    Cons

    They hardly ever fire anyone if even if they're incompetent. Management doesn't listen to employees. Many employees are generally unhappy and feel under appreciated. They do not communicate clearly or in a timely manner. There's no recognition for your work and if you're not working to their standards, they won't tell you until your review (if you get one when you're supposed to). There is very little room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Invest in your employees as people, do not just treat them as cattle.

    I have been working at Accutest Laboratories part-time

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice to work with

    Cons

    Too much drama between co-workers, when something goes wrong (guidelines aren't followed, corners are cut), nothing is done by management. People without decent qualifications are being hired to work at an organization that is supposed to be doing very serious work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your own rules!

    I worked at Accutest Laboratories full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The money was the only thing that was good. There were some people there that would be professional and you could talk to.

    Cons

    Upper management screaming in your face every day. Very disorganized. Not at all professional. Have no clue on what they are doing. A lot of tension and hostility. Uneducated managers. It was every man for himself. No one would help you they would stab you in the back and get you into trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and start behaving yourself. One month is not a decision maker. Hostility and tension are against the law and so is harassment. Be more careful in the future with what you say and what you do.
