    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Analytical Environmental Services (GA) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Met many nice and helpful coworkers. Good place to start off and learn the basic blueprint of lab tests. Good experience to help fill resume.

    Cons

    Always under surveillance. Heavily micromanaged by owner. Owners are rude, disrespectful, and do not care about lower employees. Workloads are not evenly distributed. Also the pay does not reflect the workload you are given. Very dirty labs. Employees are instructed to lie about the way procedures are done during audits. Procedures are often extremely modified due to the amount of samples received with short hold times....

    Advice to Management

    Better pay based on each job description, more employees with increase in workload, better benefits.

    I worked at Analytical Environmental Services (GA) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Better than fast food or unemployment

    Cons

    Punitive management style. Low pay. High turnover. Responsibility without authority. Sweatshop of chemistry.

    Advice to Management

    This place is too far gone to fix

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Analytical Environmental Services (GA) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free cokes, two 15-minutes breaks, breakroom.

    Cons

    40-55+ working hours per week, no overtime pay. But if you work for 39.5 hours in a week, that 0.5 hour can be taken from your PTO. Metals lab: suppose to work overtime EVERYDAY, plus Saturdays with low compensations (Manager wants you to take it as some sort of credits). No leadership and the manager was upset frequently.

    Advice to Management

    They will not listen. All the great coworkers I knew have left the department for a reason. People were survived by helping each other find new jobs.

    I worked at Analytical Environmental Services (GA) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many of your coworkers that are in the trenches with you are fantastic. They may be the only thing that keeps you going through the day. When you escape this company, trying to leave your job in the best state possible is a concern for their sake. Also...free Coke? Quarterly luncheons? You have enough money to survive?

    Cons

    Oh boy. Did you have plans tonight? I hope they were for working here. Seriously, throw away your personal life. You might work 10 hour shifts fairly regularly for months at a time. But the pay makes up for...no. No overtime. But that's only occasional, right? No. So you at least know when there will be overtime? Come on, you can see where this is going. But if you worked 50 hours last week and there's...

    Advice to Management

    Read the above. Fix it. People leave because of all of it, and then a new batch of inexperienced people make mistakes and others have to clean up (and stay late) after that. They get upset and leave. Rinse and repeat.

    I have been working at Analytical Environmental Services (GA) full-time

    Pros

    - Simple steady work - Steady paycheck

    Cons

    This company is a fairly bleak place to work. But, I truly liken this place to a dumpster fire. You don’t particularly WANT to have a dumpster fire, but if you were HOMELESS it provides you warmth in your time of need. Your coworkers may truly be incredible people. On the flip side, in certain departments there might be people who drive other good workers to leave due to their inability (or unwillingness) to NOT disclose...

    I have been working at Analytical Environmental Services (GA) full-time

    Pros

    Flexible break times and nice lunch room. Good if you need experience on your resume.

    Cons

    AES is the definition of under paid, over worked, and micromanaged. The pay is embarrassing compared to what the company makes from your data. You'll be expected to mass produce data very early and your training will be very scattered as everyone's too busy to teach you. Employees come and go rapidly. Analysts are on salary bc they can low ball paying you and bc often times you stay late or work a short shift on the weekend...they...

    Pros

    Associates are nice and helpful, they offer free beverages in the break room

    Cons

    Well over worked, for little to no money, no appreciation, no incentives to do better or want a career with them , management and the owners are insensitive. They hire people fresh out of college with little to no experience so they can low ball them thinking that you as a associate do not know any better. Very stressful job! Not worth the struggle or headaches, literally what you see is what you get. There is no over...

    Your coworkers are great

    Cons

    I went through the interview process 3 interview in total and then was told that they choose someone else. 2 weeks later I get a call stating that they do want me to start working the following week. On the day I start the company changed my offer from salary to hourly. When I started I found that none of the computers that I was tasked with maintaining had malware or virus protection on them.
