If you are on the edge of a mental breakdown, bureau veritas will take care of giving you one. Poor management with double standards, low salaries. Long hours of work (up to 12 hours sometimes), they tell you not ask you to do overtime and then they complain about it!! Stressful work environment. Managers and supervisors love suck ups with low potentials. They have favourites who keep feeding them with gossip about other employees. If they see you are a good employee they will not appreciate it, they will take advantage of it and burden you with extra work. Huge load of work with shortage in staff(everyone keeps quitting), and ridiculously made up deadlines in the laboratory.
Good experience for young graduates. Bad hours, and no work/life balance. Shift finishes at 1230 a.m, no sitting down other than 2 half hour breaks. Attitude in workplace is rather stressful and non jovial. Not a fun place to stay long, only good for experience.
No work life balance
NOT A GOOD IDEA TO SPEND MORE THAN 1 YEAR. Management never cared about their employees. They disregard safety (mental and physical), and only cares about productivity. Coworkers will always backstab. Very poor work ethics. Too much politics. They keep hiring new-comers because they need servants, they take advantage of people's personal necessities to fulfill their work. SUCH A LOW GRADE THOUGHT. Senior managers are so talkative and they only support gossip queens. If you show good work ethics, your coworkers will start treating you as maid and supervisors will definitely support them because they are friends. Dear Management, Please rethink about salary, especially in mississauga, as cost of living is really high in GTA.
Sorry, there is none. ohh yes, free coffee!!
Everything (Management, salary and coworkers)
Very interesting, inspiring and exciting time to be in the company, with new initiatives in maintenance, salary scales, a new dental plan and a focus on lean improvements, expansion in Mexico and opening of first onsite lab.
Dental plan restored, new vision for the company was inspiring.
No pension plan
The lab itself is like working in a factory. Long working hours, restricted break times. The management is not very helpful. They don't have mid night shift. Asked employees to work from 3 pm till 3 am. Training is thorough and have to lift so many heavy things. It is good place to start but not to stay more than a year. A year too will be very tiring,no personal life and monotonous.
The lab is not in a remote place
Long tedious working hours
I've been working there 18 months. Fortunately, they make me permanent full-time after 3 months internships. After the first year, my hourly salary is raise by 2% from $16 to $16.3. Pros: there are many benefits (fitness centre, online shopping discount, including Apple, for example). Job is very easy and repetitive. Strong safety culture as reflected by weekly safety meetings with supervisor and monthly once-a-month safety meetings with manager. Cons Poor management, Task is boring and repetitive. No career development and orientation. Pay cheap. Exploit EmployeesGreat place to start career but not to stay.

This company is great when you finish school as they give the chance to graduate! It is a very productive place, the workload keeps you busy. Management is excellente. Workplace is nice. Shifts can be on rotation. Flexibility is a must as overtime is required weekly. Great place to learn to work in under pressure and fast pace!
Communicative Management, Social events organized regularly (breakfast, bagels, bbq, Christmas, etc), clean workplace, advancement possible, overtime paid
Good for learning and getting the hands on training. Many students and co ops get their training here. One can either choose food or chemistry department
You start your day by taking the reports from previous shift and try to continue with doing a maintenance (based on the instruments situation and work load), then preparing the reports for the analyzed samples and sending them to the signers after checking all instrumental and environmental controls./and finally try to restart the instruments for the new samples.
Learning a lot while doing your tasks
Low salary and stressful condition for rush samples
MANAGERS don't appreciate/reward staff who is hard-working and dedicated, instead they lure carping employees who keep complaining and avoid their work. SENIOR STAFF doesn't want to train new-comers, for the reason that even they were not trained by their seniors. Poor Lineage. Lacks Emotional Intelligence. SALARY is too low as compared to their daily workload.
While populated with a few people who are wonderful to deal with, they do not interact with lower staff in any meaningful way. I was promoted all the way up to a manager at a remote location with no training. Recognition is fickle and personality based instead of your accomplishments. They always find excuses to not award bonuses, even if all of the criteria is met.
Bad working environment.Its completely with narrow minded people.most of them work there just because they find no other options especially senior staff..... they can't raise there voice because they know for a fact management will not change. Management with no leadership skills. Better place to start with.... in career and to get experience. Junior staff are students.... long hours.... low quality work environment. They need work to be done... they don't care about employees... it is just business.... there core VALUES are nothing
