    Pros

    Decent pay. Excellent support when it comes to safety, training, and having what you need to do your job

    Cons

    They have taken away some added benefits that I had when I hired in. Upper mid management can be hard to get along with.

    Pros

    Your own boss. Expense checks.

    Cons

    Horrible health care.
    Horrible management
    Can't pay you properly finds way to take money from you. Like changing your hours on ADP.
    You drive you car all around putting on average 150 miles per week.

    Advice to Management

    There's no advice you can't give advice to ignorant individuals.

    Have a better system in place, when you call your 24/7 employees.

    Pros

    Potential to make some money

    Cons

    Over worked, under appreciated, no room to advance unless you brown nose your way to the top. Management doesn’t care if you’re tired or if you’ve worked 40 of the last 48 hours you need to go and make the company more money.

    I worked at Amspec Services full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent. There a some good coworkers.

    Cons

    Watch your back here. People will seem nice but they are not afraid to lie or throw you under the bus if they can look better and get ahead. If you need a recommendation letter do not go to the chemistry management, they're not reliable and will lie about you if it makes management look better. Go straight to the main lab manager, that office is more likely to tell the truth about your work.
    Watch your back and cover your bases even if you think you have friends at work. It is a toxic work environment. Racism and derogatory terms are a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the politics. There is no need to make work life so difficult.

    Pros

    Theres Definately always something new to learn

    Cons

    Too much office politics. Lots of drama and negativity being spread around by managment about their own employees. Also, they expect you to fake good results on tests just to please a customer. Whatever happened to quality assurance. Don't expect much advancement in the lab either. The manager is always looking out only for the employees he's closest too. (Aka...previous job history together; Intertek)....Just a bunch of egotistical hypocrites willing to screw you over for their next dollar.

    Advice to Management

    Give all your employees all their well deserved performance raises, cut the bull crap office politics, and stop turning in false test results signed off on by your lab supervisors. Very unethical...

    Pros

    Some opportunity for over time.

    Cons

    It's annoying that the manager and coworkers speak in their native language in front of you. It's rude and unprofessional. If you're not asian like the manager, they will speak about you and switch people's schedules around if they don't like you.

    Pros

    Decent pay/benefits, lots of free time. The company is continually expanding.

    Cons

    Irregular work hours, no steady work flow (for the smaller branches). Sometimes it is very busy, other times there is no work for days. Also difficult to advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of current employees before spending money opening new branches. Keep your employees happy to avoid high turnover.

    Pros

    Job started well then everything went downhill.

    Cons

    Management only cares about their favorites or family. Will talk down to you & not appreciate all the work you do. Took away holiday pay without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to talk to your employees & not treat them like crap. Don't intimidate them.
