Great place to work
Corporate Stock Buyer - Equipment (Current Employee), Radnor, PAJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: gym in radnor facility, ability to work remotely, free fruit in office.
Cons: low pay
VWR is a generally a great place to work with a nice office culture and a lot of career opportunity. The compensation for buyers is well below the national average for this role.
Advancement often is based on who you know rather than merit, with instances of nepotism.
The company has a lot of involvement opportunities for associates such as the annual 5k run, education opportunities, and wellness and health incentives.

A decent place to work
FAB Support (Former Employee), Chandler, AZJanuary 12, 2015
Work was easy but not much for advancement with the company. Nepotism was running wild there and upper management did not seem to care much.

Outdated processes, but it pays the bills
MATERIAL HANDLING TECHNICIAN (Current Employee), Hillsboro, orDecember 8, 2014
Stock room is ran like its the 70s. Pay is the absolute lowest in the industry. However, its stable and the schedule is great. Huge divide between team leads and tech in the field. It would be wise to invest in new technology and processes for inventory management as well as creating some sort of supervising technician position.

Outstanding Company
Designer (Former Employee), Irving, TXDecember 4, 2014
Management and co-workers are the best.
Corporate decides at will who they cut in times of economic hardship with little or no thought as to damage done to individuals.

Excellent Place Of Employment
Inventory Control/ Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee), Bridgeport New JerseyDecember 1, 2014
Pros: healthcare, excellent pay
Cons: layoffs
My time at VWR began in the accounts payable department, where I learned how to interact with customers local and International. I was an account expense clerk doing check runs, expense reports and customer service. I also was able to work in the inventory control department where I was able to monitor inventory coming in and leaving the building. I was able to perform customer service in this department solving incoming problems of vendors.

Family friendly, good benefits, good cause. Lots of dysfunction
Regulatory Affairs Manager (Current Employee), Rochester, NYNovember 28, 2014
VWR would be a great company to work for if it weren't for their insatiable drive for explosive growth by any and all means possible. They have great infrastructure but are so fractured by competing priorities that teams don't work well together.

Inventory Management Specialist (Current Employee), Radnor, PANovember 12, 2014
Pros: meeting people from all over the world
Cons: poor communication between management and workers
Good stepping stone. Co workers were ok knowledgeable of job. Hardest part of job was to not engage in the politics or let them get you down. Most enjoyable part of the job was satisfying the customer and enhancing the reputation of the company.

Great company with an A++ training program
Sales Support Specialist (Former Employee), Batavia, ILSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: excellent training program.
I was very impressed with the training program provided by VWR International. It is second to none and I now have the same expectation for future employment after moving further away now that I am ready to get back to work after being an at home mom.

Highly recommended!!
