I have been working at Silliker full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits, outstanding paid time off, 401k matching are part of the rewards for your long service to the company. Job security is great after you are cross-trained between departments.

Cons

Long, late hours. Work holidays. Sometimes it's hard to see the forest for the trees during the day. Mistake prone people need not apply.

Advice to Management

Remember to thank your hard working technicians. They give up a lot for this company.

    I have been working at Silliker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, PTO is good and young group of people working there.

    Cons

    There is no definite stop time at work. You work until all samples are processed that day. You have no life with this job. Requires standing on your feet all day. Not enough staff to cover for any days off.

    Advice to Management

    Provide 8hr shifts to employees. Hire more people so those who want PTO can actually use it.

    I worked at Silliker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hire and train you with no experience

    Cons

    Forced overtime, unreasonable hours, favoritism, unproffesionalism. Repetitive and tedious motions. Management doesn't lead by example.

    Advice to Management

    Scheduling needs to be addressed. Stop playing favorites to employees that are willing to stay all hours of the night. These same employees are the ones that are inefficient and milk the clock during regular operations.
