Working as an intern was very fun and informative. My supervisors and co-workers were all warm and welcoming; they made it known that I can approach them whenever I needed help. I was guided without being babied; they knew when it was fine to let me accomplish something and when to step in and help me. I learned a lot about work ethics and laboratory techniques. Indeed, a good work environment brings out the best in workers.
Modern day slavery. Never encountered management and account managers who think you should worship them. Don’t do it ! Sgs office in Ealing was appealing.How can you work on accounts and not be allowedTo speak to the client. Rosada was a nightmare.
Brutal! Tasks are simple and repetitive, high work load, lunch and break often not taken/given. No teamwork, problem solving, or advancement, do not work here unless you are desperate or as a first job. Any chemist with any self respect left.
Reimbursed safety shoe
long hours with no overtime, work weekends, no advancement, mundane tasks, no team aspect
Empresa de grande porte, com contrato grande com única empresa, produção muito grande, digo estressante até, e sem instabilidade nenhuma.
Benefícios, horários, alimentação na empresa, convênio médico excelente, participação nos lucros e especial.
Não é uma empresa firme, se perde contrato demite em massa, e a gerência deixa a desejar, falta administração, tem muito panelinha.
Etant contrôleur technique dans l'entreprise depuis 5 ans de leur filiale ACO Sécurité, je déconseille vivement cette entreprise.La direction est incompétente: le Directeur Opérationnel Adjoint ne connait rien au contrôle technique ni dans l'automobile d'ailleurs. Il n'est pas capable de gérer un litige. La seul chose qu'il est capable de faire était de m'imposer une mutation que j’étais obliger de refuser pour me licencier.On est payer au ras des pâquerette.CE inexistant .Aucune reconnaissance du travail effectué.Aucune évolution possible.

Not a bad job just dont go in with any expectation of advancement. At most you may be placed in a different department to fill in a workload gap. Unless you physically are unable to perform your duties you will be relegated to working the prep line and the prep line only. If you are looking for a solid job that is the exact same day in and day out, low mental stimulation but high physical demand then this would be a solid fit.
Dull and extremely repetitive.
Someone like me not coming from survey industry would be required to work even harder to convince the management that they have not made a wrong decision to hire that person.
Well recognized due to their global presence, prompt in salary payouts, diverse range of service offered by the company
Sometimes you have to work on weekends as well
Typical day was spent driving construction sites looking for birds to identify, and then move them out with use of pyrotechnics, and use of the truck horn to prevent the birds from settling and nesting. Driving conditions were off road and depending on the weather, driving could be very challenging. Nest sweeps were conducted for the construction company before they went into areas to work with heavy equipment to ensure there were no nesting birds. Once birds were determined to be nesting there, then area was cordoned off, and it was checked daily to follow the progress of the birds. Some data input was done to track our daily bird counts. Management was ok with site issues, but did little if there was personality conflicts within the work group.... seemed like certain people controlled most issues even though they had no designation to be leads. Working outside, driving, could be the most enjoyable part of the job, or it could be the hardest part of the job, depending if you got stuck, and how much of a process that was to get you out.
staying in camp
long days... 12 hour shifts
management was highly disorganized. Availability of work was decided upon by favoritism. Work load was also highly irregular and uncertain. Knowing the french language was a determining factor in how you fit in with the rest of the group.
Great training and great management support. Feel like part of a team and given the tools and training needed for the job. Flew the crew to Montreal for initial training. Also supported training out in the field
Away from home, working outside in all weather
