CMP Operator (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ 85212 – 1 February 2018
The company expected the operators to wear many hats. One minute you were a Lab Technician running a titrator, spectrophotometer, accusizer, or Ph probe. The next you are a data entry or record keeping clerk recording data on paper or into computer datalog. Then you will be a hazardous materials handler transferring open acids, oxidizers, or powders with airborne particulates, into holding tanks. A forklift operator transporting and staging raw materials and finished goods. A packager/sampler filling drums and totes with finished product. Palletizing and readying them for shipment. Accessed SAP, LIMS, Excel, etc.. to generate labels and spreadsheets necessary to prep containers and provide supporting documentation for every batch. Operator to run an antiquated dispersion process that is prone to malfunction requiring close monitoring for 12 hours at a time. Industrial laborer changing banks of up to 45 filters (several seasoned operators complained of pain to wrist and elbows due to repetitive motion of this process) at a time. Chemical Compounder responsible for the proper measuring, dispensing, and blending of chemical batches of high value. with new processes, rules, and edicts, being handed down weekly.
Compensation began just slightly higher than a hamburger flipper.
Nepotism was also a problem there. Candidates with real world experience often overlooked in favor of friends/relatives of current workers without any.
Every few years an opening for advancement would arise but for the most part the operators are stuck right where they are.
The annualmore... increases do not even keep up with the rising costs of insurance premiums and living expenses, leaving the workers with less expendible income year after year.less

Operator Technician (Current Employee) – Mesa, AZ – 2 June 2019
Crazy place to work with very low sub standard pay for the industry. Yearly physicals when should only be every 2 to 5 years,drug test employees upto 5 times a year by swab and urine. Easy job if you're smart enough and capable but rather work for the government or FBI, they at least pay me enough to be constantly harassed medically/drug screenings. I have white coat syndrome hate all the hospital dealings. They also dump all their waste down the drain,treat it with more chemicals. I will never drink city water in Mesa period. They hired in 2005 $15 an hr and now 14 years later it's one dollar more. They hire dreamers and non citizens also so maybe it's for you,not for this experienced ,hardworking, dedicated American from a family full of veterans.
Sometimes laid back
Low pay, no advancement, hire worse ppl with less knowledge to be above you

Very poor management, only care about them sells. No respect at any position from management. A bunch of alcoholics. Pay is very poor , raises are a joke. If you read this make sure you look somewhere else for a job. There are better jobs out there, just keep looking
