    I worked at POLARIS Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of work. Many opportunities for OT. Easy to make friends with the work force.

    Cons

    Management can be a bit fickle. Work efforts are not often recognized. Opportunities to move upward are pretty limited.

    Advice to Management

    More voaability in the lab. Get to know the people for more than just your "hired hands".

    Interview

    The hiring process was... minimal.Process begins with a 1 minute initial phone interview, followed by a personal interview the next day. Polaris desperately needs to maintain its revolving door culture and isn't in a position to deny anyone employment. In fact, about 1/3 of job offers go unaccepted here. After a brief questioning an oral drug test is performed, and I assume a minimal background check is also conducted - maybe. Interviewees are often informed of a job offer within 1 week of interview

  • As we start May, POLARIS Laboratories is very fortunate and thankful to have five more employees celebrating 10+ years of service with us this month. What's more, this brings our year-to-date total to 15 employees who have celebrated an employment anniversary of 10+ years with us. These employees are the reason why we have enjoyed 16 years of success meeting and exceeding our customers' expectations.

  • Three new hires started this week who are employee referrals. We look forward to paying out our referral bonus to those employees who enthusiastically referred great candidates to be their co-workers.
