      I have been working at Gustatec part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Very nice panel leaders, great and interesting group of panelists and clean atmosphere.

      Cons

      I work in the North Brunswick facility. I got a phone call today from the New Brunswick office advising me that both of my panels for tomorrow are canceled, which means I don't work. What really kills me is that Gustatec requires at least 48 hrs notice from their employees to take time off, and you better have a good excuse, but they don't extend the same courtesy to the panelists. I understand the cancellation was...

      Advice to Management

      We, the panelists should be given more respect when making spontaneous decisions. We arrange our schedules to be there on days that have been approved. Please take into consideration that we all have lives too!!! If you expect us to be loyal, then you should be better role models....

      I have been working at Gustatec part-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      This place has a very laid back working environment. During breaks you can do homework or read. The job is easy and they do offer somewhat flexible scheduling.

      Cons

      This place changes their policies constantly. Currently, you can only have 2 excused absences per quarter. Yeah that twice every 3 months. So you can't get sick, have surgery, go to your mother's funeral, or take a vacation without being threatened to lose your bonuses. Shifts almost never begin on time but if you are one minute late they won't let you stay for your shift. Overbooked shifts have some people asked to leave....

      Advice to Management

      Develop a policy and stick with it.
