    I worked at Column Engineering full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was fascinated with all of the hands on experience! John was very focused on producing quality products for other labs using his chromatography columns as well a accurate lab results for companies using our services. Also, we were a tightly knit group, often eating lunch together daily as well as enjoying our monthly Friday lunch out, provided by the owner, John.

    Cons

    Due to deadlines, many here ran at a high stress level; however, all employees held a high standard for themselves as well thoughtfulness for the others they worked with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and quality products. Thank you for the opportunity to expand my knowledge of chemistry and office management.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Column Engineering (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Once applied for a position, a recruiter contacts you. After discussing about your qualifications and the applied position, Column arranges a time to talk with the hiring manager of the position. Within 2 weeks, I was placed in a well paying position with a per diem.
