    Pros

    A lot of freedom and opportunity to learn various tests, unsupervised work after training, wide variety of different tests, and security is nice.

    Cons

    A few employees pipette concentrated nitric acid with little to zero PPE nor caution and fail to heed warnings and safety, fellow employees are very sensitive to new ideas as many of them have been working there for 10+ years, everything is very old, rusty, outdated, and looks as if it hasn't been cleaned in over 15 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to both sides of a story before making a decision.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vertellus (Greensboro, NC) in April 2013.

    Interview

    basically in a nutshell they're going to ask questions to make sure you can basically read and understand a bad record to make sure that you know all about chemical reactors and batch processing how to pull vacuum how to heat have a clue how the adjutant how to take splits off tanks etcetera. and that's just the start of it you have to know what raw material goes into what reactor at what exact time at what exact weight and what exact reason it's going into that reactor for if not you can have serious consequences some of the products produced there are four pharmaceutical companies for animal additives that go into medicines for humans and animals alike so one wrong move and you can easily kill half of a population.
