Operator (Former Employee), temecula CADecember 3, 2013
Its a routine everyday at work. if you don't have an initiative you will be stuck at a work station. Great training programs but never got to use it to excel through a different job title/possession because of lack of promotions and unfair evaluations. The hardest part of my job is not really getting any recognitions on the hard work n efforts that – more... was put in to excel through the company. The best part of being at work is when I get asked to work with engineers for some RnD(research and development) work because I get to learn from well experienced technicians and engineer making the next generation product – less

I've gained many friends in the course of having this job and have also learned a great deal about the way to properly work with chemical reagents. The management and personnel in higher divisions were easily accessible and were understanding of situations if ever we made a mistake.

Purchasing Assistant (Former Employee), Abbott Park, ILDecember 2, 2013
Pros: great cafe great co-workers lovely holiday lunch and great healthcare.
Cons: the office was to cold. had to have a space heater running year round.
Abbott was a great company to work for. I enjoyed my co-workers and also the management team as well. My typical day at work was to process orders and assist internal and external clients. The hardest part of the job was when orders were over $50,000.00 I would have to have the Agent to approve and sometimes they were backed up with meetings and I was – more... not able to get the orders processed as quickly as I would have liked. I learned how to balance the difficult orders and how to have my Agents assist me with getting the orders processed. The most enjoyable part of my job was being with my co-workers and also being able to assist my clients. – less

My abilities not recognized, nor used to their greatest potential.
Assembler III, Senior Operator (Former Employee), Temecula, CANovember 18, 2013
Everybody felt like the company just cared for the new technology they just acquired, not the people. And then they showed it by having a series of layoffs - wave after wave. Had to work in an environment of uncertainty, which is very stressful.

Direct Sales Representative working in a call center responsible for advising the inbound consumers calls while selling sports supplements.
Direct Sales Representative and Fitness Advisor (Former Employee), Golden, CONovember 12, 2013
Pros: education and importance of ongoing exercise and nutrition, free and wholesale supplements, state of the art work-out facility
Cons: i was going to school full time and going right to work at six pm until12 pm
A typical day at EAS would involve advising inbound customers on exercise, nutrition, and the large array of products that could help them reach their goals. Often times, customers would compare our products to our competition’s pricing, like GNC. I developed a great sense of product differentiation, matching and beating various price points, and the – more... art of up-selling, and educating our clients to meet their particular needs.

EAS management was great. Call center employees were continuously trained on new products, incentivized and rewarded fairly, and encouraged to grow and advance.
My co-workers were like family. We would work out together, discuss products and strategies, and hold each other accountable in both our personal and career goals.

The most enjoyable part of the job was helping regular clients achieve their goals. When they won, I won. I never got tired of their enthusiasm and appreciation for the gains I was able to help them make. To this day, EAS/ Abbott Laboratories was the most rewarding job I've had. – less

Certified trainer (Current Employee), Temecula, CANovember 10, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: always worry about a layoff
When I first started there it was a great place to work. Then it was called Guidant, once Abbott took over that's when it all went down hill. I liked the people I worked with however there were so many layoffs that the ones you liked were always gone the next day. I did learn multiple skills in the manufacturing world including inside a Clean room. – more... Learned multiple operations even one that only 30% of the people who tried finished. – less
