    I have been working at AMRESCO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people at every level. Good pay and benefits. Trusted place with good future. Amresco being taken over by the mother company -VWR, it is a good move.

    Cons

    Training system needs to be driven by strategy and key factors for much needed improvement. Feedback is much needed at every level, tool that can be used for further development in every department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your representatives and pay much attention to details.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AMRESCO.

    Interview

    It started out badly and I probably should have taken the signal to stay away from this company. They failed to call me at the scheduled time for the phone interview and did not pick up when I attempted to call. It was 24 hours before they emailed to tell me they missed the interview because they had been too busy to call. This kind of thing happened several times during the interview process. The recruiter seemed helpful and sincere but perhaps she's overworked and can't meet obligations. They advertise that the company is "growing" but in reality what this really means is the company is changing its role, the employees don't really know what's going on in management or where the company is headed, or even if they'll have their jobs in a year. There is disconnect and perceptible bad feelings between the rank-and-file and the management. As other people have said, AMRESCO pays less than other companies for equivalent positions.

    I went in for 2 additional interviews after we finally got the phone interview out of the way, the first with a single person, then a final interview day with two more single interviews and a panel. The panel, composed of the people I would be working with, was great, I could tell they were good people and really wanted to work with them. However the interview with the director was pretty bad. She was unenthusiastic during the interview, didn't make eye contact, and didn't seem to show any interest in my answers... merely read from a paper she had in front of her. So overall the company definitely gave off a negative aura and I probably wouldn't have continued the interview process if I had not been unemployed at the time... and especially if I had not liked the co-workers so much.

    In the end, they kept telling me week after week "next week we'll have a decision for you". Tthis happened for 5 or 6 weeks until they made up their minds to hire internally.
