I worked at RBC Life Sciences full-time
Outstanding products and a 25 year history of providing them. Customers going back for years and years who continue to reorder.
Because the company has been around so long, there's a pervading culture that says, "We tried that" or "That's never worked." There's an inability or an outright fear to try anything new. Old IT infrastructure cannot keep up with the times. Old legacy employees are kept around the keep this culture going, but new people are quickly let go as they threaten the "status quo." There's a "passive / aggressive" feedback loop that makes it virtually impossible to determine how you're doing on your job ... until it's too late.
Advice to Management
Provide open communication. Try new things. If something hasn't worked in the past, don't stop doing it, but ask why. Learn from your mistakes. Don't keep the same people on even after they've been making the same mistakes year after year.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at RBC Life Sciences (Irving, TX) in January 2013.
Literally had no interview...got there and I was told about the job. They asked no questions about me or why I wanted the job and they hire based on looks and she even told me that after I was hired when they were hiring for another position. I was supposed to be drug tested but they never did.
