    Pros

    Great people, and some managers, depending on the group you work for. If you want to you can learn a lot and use it to get a better job. Flexibility is always an option here. You will learn what you need to look for at your next employer.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, benifits are a joke, management is not interested in promoting qualified people who can think for themselves. They only want yes men around them, and want to prove they are the smartest people in the room. Management takes care of their family and kids, which would be fine but the disparity between how they are treated and benifits they receive verses employees is beyond belief it would be better to just pay them to stay home and not be seen or constantly have anagment negative impact on the company and actual employees that work there.

    The management and owner are horribly out of touch on how to manage and motivate their employees, they see employees a negative assets that they have to deal with and resent them for it. And as such raises and promotions are almost non-existent and what you get if you are promoted is normally 1-2% even for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    It has been said here before, invest in your employees and take care of them like they actually mean something. In some cases you do actually hire intelligent people find them and work to keep them, even if they disagree with you. Look to move these people up into higher positions. Tell the family members to stay home, and hire or promote people who have degrees and actual experience in the business and lab spaces. The company will be much better off for it.

    Microscopist Asbestos PLM Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at EMSL Analytical (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process took about 2 weeks. I applied online and heard back within two days. I completed a phone interview which was very easy and straightforward - I was basically asked to describe my resume. I then filled out a lengthy application (where I again basically wrote out my resume). I was asked to come in for an interview with the lab manager. The interview was straightforward, didn't include any unexpected questions, and concluded with a tour of the lab. Overall pleasant, straightforward experience.
