Might be worth 12 months to gain lab experience
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) – Leigh, Lancashire – 14 April 2019
Probably worth working for Intertek for 12 months to get the name on your CV. Don't expect an exciting career, the Leigh site is badly managed. There are too many non-technical staff members (employed by previous management who took would employ anyone with a pair of hands that could use scissors) who cannot flex and pick up other areas, so if you are technical and capable, expect to do most of the work while other people sit around chatting. Far too many mistakes made that are corrected without informing whoever made the mistake of how to do things properly and when they are informed they either don't listen or don't remember (see comment about non-technical above). This result in the same mistakes over and over again, which is very frustrating when you are trying to do a job under extreme time pressure. Work for 12 months, don't try too hard, do the minimum required and then put their name on your CV and get yourself something better.

Terribly managed, working with non-technical people in a technical environment, money isn't great
