Productive environment with opportunity to grow
Sales / Customer SAP Expert (Former Employee), Batavia ILJuly 21, 2014
Pros: benefits, decent salary, learning new system
Cons: working late, limited team interactions
VWR customer care department is hands on. You deal with the customers exclusively and learn per phone call. There are opportunity to work in other specific customer call environments. Many people who started out on phones worked their way into management roles and sales positions. It makes use of your customer service skills and you have to work through – more... issues. Patience is needed. – less

I worked 12 hour shifts and I stayed busy without supervision
JIT Runner (Former Employee), 1600 Rio Rancho Blvd SE, Rio Rancho, NM 87124June 25, 2014
Pros: managed my time without having my manager worrying if the job was getting done
I would submit an order of things we were running low on. Load a cart up with stocking materials and push it to different locations through out the day and stock items and return if needed more. I usually worked alone because my co-workers had their own areas to maintain. It was a fun job that kept me busy all day and the shifts would go by fast.

Pros: ability to work independently and the health care
Cons: working remote
I have been with my company for 8 years and know my job well. I work independently and now, I am working remote for my company. The hardest part of my job right now is not being in the office after so many years of being able to get up and go speak to anyone face to face, I now have to work smarter.
A typical day is very fast paced and I normally have – more... multiple projects I am working on at any given time. My time is needed by my Senior team, their departments, my AP team and all my vendors.
I have learned quite a lot in my years here, very valuable skills dealing with my Vendors and the different areas of our business. – less

Pros: life science sales, learning from multiple researchers

Each day at VWR, I would visit my customers in a life science laboratory. I would strive to learn about their process, and exactly what they were trying to accomplish in their lab.

Chemical Technician (Current Employee), Chandler, AZMarch 19, 2014
I'm a chemical technician and the best part about my job is I have a lot of free time. I can do homework, read, whatever I want. The bad part is VWR laid off a lot of people about a year ago and everyone feels like it may happen again. And those of us that stayed on the contract had to take a pay cut.
