Have applied for several positions. No replies! Is anyone home? Is the Career section for looks only?
How is HR at Thermo??
TM doesn't screen for candidates from the thousands of hopeful submissions that flood their website.
Networking, internal referrals, etc. That's how it's done, son.
Perhaps some of you folks have not been unemployed for awhile, and understand what real misery is. Real misery is not even getting call backs for jobs you are very qualified for. I have applied 17 times to TFS is Middletown Va, and never gotten a call! I have a excellent background in manufacturing and production, with over 15 years experience. How do you get a job at TFS?? I've tried everything! Concerning the salary issue..Wendys, Walmart, etc pays minimum wages. Why is it well known and advertised through the employment commision and other job sites, that the manufacturing pay at TFS is well in excess if 10-14 per hour?? You would rather work minimum wage than 10-14 per hour? Once again..try unemployment!
You'll think twice before making a bad statement about TFS!
How do you get a possibility of a job there??
Any comments on the Rochester, NY ThermoFisher company? Is there development (software / hardware) or manufacturing or both?
There is certainly noticeably a bundle to grasp this. I presume you have got made precise nice points in functions also. suknie ślubne łódź http://hgl.pl/biznes,i,ekonomia/suknie,slubne,lodz,s,159/
I Agree FISHER SUCCKKKSSSSS
The Hudson, NH location is like dead man walking! So depressing, this is what happens when there is poor management. There is no heart and no passion left in this organization only moving things to other countries and trying to make a buck. Why not focus on Made in the USA and keep some jobs around.
Yes! go working at PerkinElmer!
Fisher ruin thermos hard work with a catalogue full of second rate products and the worst customer service I have ever experienced, even when compared with the way my local car dealership handled an issue with my car radio.
Thermo should get rid of fisher.
Don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you. We don't need your negativity.
There has been many atempts to resolve the way this one supervisor talks to and treats their employees. The company has moved them to various departments and since then been demoted twice before. Now if I were upper management why would I not just let this person go. Yet they keep moving this person all around the facility. I don't get it........my old boss that was laid-off warned me that since the merger, to get the hell out of there because the people that are running the company are bad, bad people. I should of listened when I had the opportunity to leave. Now I'm stuck here until another door opens up for me.
Did you contact the better business bureau?
I left Thermo-Fisher for academia a few years back.
I worked hard, did good work, got no respect. Others who sucked up were promoted. After a while I hated every minute.
I doubled my salary and have a job I enjoy.
My blood pressure dropped 20 points just a month after leaving.
Lost 15 pounds - no more anxiety eating. Didn't change anything else.
If you value your life, don't work at Thermo Fisher
i work at the thermo fisher manufacturing plant in rochester ny,do yourself a favor and looks elsewhere for a job you'll be glad you did,
This comment is in response to the person that talked about the idiot that came from Marietta a couple years ago. I'm hoping someone out there can help me with this problem. My husband happened to work at TF under that idiot's reign. He has a bad back and arthritis but was told he WILL do the morning stretches/exercises that everyone had to do. Even though his doctor told him not to, fearing his job, my husband did as he was told. Later that morning he ended up going to MedExpress and was off work awhile. After having back surgery and not being able to come back to work at 100% with no restrictions, they fired him. If anyone happens to read this who can help me, please email me. I am searching for a lawyer to take our case because I feel he was wrongfully discharged and discriminated against. Every time a "big-wig" toured the plant, he was sent elsewhere so he couldn't be seen or heard because he just didn't fit the "Thermo image". Please help me someone............thanks!
here's my email: email@example.com
ever since Fred left the company. the place has no spirit and feels like a retirement home. waiting to die
how about the genomics division? Pros and cons on this from anyone?
What is the deal with the newest site director? Is she any better?
I have worked at TFS in Asheville for a number of years. The company has steadily gone down hill since DD sold Revco. a couple of years ago we got a director of operations from Marietta. I think this guy was a nazi death camp guard in another life. He has shit for brains. I am seriously considering giving my resignation very soon. I don't see any future for this company. All they ever hire anymore are total idiots.
I have worked for Fisher for 10 years and I hate it! The pay sucks, you get no respect from management, and every day is a day of hell. Trust me.... if the economy was better, I would leave in a heartbeat.
Does everyone only complain about the company I work for? I work for a major diagnostics company and they take amazing care of us and provide us the world, ...
Wow, pray tell which company this is. Either you brownnose the leaders to death or you're a yes-man. If you speak your mind or have a different opinion, which is what you would expect to do once in awhile if you were hired as a professional, they'll find any excuse to walk you out the door. There's one in particular in NJ that is notorious for this. Everyone sits and prays that they're not next, pretending they like their job.
Many of the larger companies do not reply back to you if they are not interested in you. As the commenter mentioned earlier, you really have to find the right connection in the company to get yourself noticed. Most of the staff that looks at your resume is not qualified to assess whether you a re a good fit or not, unfortunately, Connections are everything. If you have been in this industry for at least 10 years, then you are bound to know someone who knows someone that can help. I have been in diagnostics for over 25 years and let me tell you, it is an extremely small, incestuous business. That could be good or bad depending on who likes or dislikes you.
I also applied but no response so far ... disappointed!!!
Regarding sending your resume to Thermo and getting no responses. Don't take it personally. HR departments at large companies are traditionally extremely inefficient. Your resume sits in a pile that is downloaded every morning, and some clerical type who hates her job spends 20 seconds looking at each resume and then heaves most of them. Then she looks up at the clock to see how many hours it will be till she gets out of her lousy job that she hates so much.
Send your resume to the hiring manager instead. If you aren't the type of person to network and cold call through a company to find the manager and you aren't smart enough to have a large network on LinkedIn you can look through, then your next best bet is to find out which recruiters have the best network within Thermo and work with them. But it can be tough to find out who those recruiters are. They will all say they have connections to get your resume, but that really won't be true.
For example, in a case like mine, I have a great network within Thermo, but since the HR department has always been uncooperative, I just use my connections to recruit from them, not put people in.
When will HR get smart enough to realize that having their pet recruiters and not working with others is accomplishing nothing but painting a bulls-eye on their door? It should be their job to make sure the best people are hired--why should they worry about which recruiters name is on the check, as long as the best person is hired.
I'm a headhunter specializing in life science capital equipment and I go into Thermo all the time to recruit. I would rate them as no better or no worse than most other companies--somewhere in the middle.
Bio-Rad pays a bit lower than average, PerkinElmer about average in pay but turnover a little higher. None of these companies are anything to write home about, but they don't absolutely suck either.
I would guess most of the complainers are either people who don't work for Thermo at all and are pretending to because they have no lives and are just looking for something to do, or if they work for Thermo they are the slugs that Thermo can't wait to get rid of.
Wrong, I left Thermo for a smaller independent company, doing the exact same position, and I absolutely love it! I guess it was that the Thermos's Life Scinece division out of Rockford, IL just sucked!
Meant 'they' work for in last post.
Does everyone only complain about the company I work for? I work for a major diagnostics company and they take amazing care of us and provide us the world, yet 80% of my coworkers still just complain complain complain. I don't work for TF, but I can't take any of this seriously. Just be happy you have a job. I bet you have it better than you believe...
Sadly, they are better than VWR.
ThermoFisher is an unethical company! What a waste of 3 years. They have extreme idiots running the company and they micro-manage the top producers to justify their arrogant existence. I pitty the people that work for TF.
I would say 80% of the people that work at TF are looking to get out so when the economy picks up there will be lots of openings. TF pay the lowest and the benefits are nothing to brag about either. Add the negative work environment and you have a sinking ship.
Thermal Fisher is the God worst company to work for,or do business with! The management is horrible, the quality of the products Suck! They are only interested in PROFITS, not interested in their employees or customers! They will make up things aout their employees and then fire them, and not pay them money that they are owed! They lie andd screw over their customerss! Just ask the employees in Cleveland.
I have had the same experience, just move on to another company. If Thermo want you they will contact you once HR gets the OK to start hiring. Many companies only have jobs up as feelers for the industry status, but they havent got the OK to hire yet.
It is a big company (35,000 employees) so it really depends on what division you work for. I really like the division I work for and the tenure is very high with not a lot of turnover.
I am sure there are different divisions out there where they don't like their supervisors or the managers but that comes with every company. It is a solid company and I am actually glad to be a part of a solid strong company in these tumultuous times.
Just make sure you find out who you will be reporting to and ask the employees how they like it.
I wonder how the employees that like this company will feel about it when all of their jobs are outsourced to China and India. It is going to happen. I am going to laugh at these simple minded fools when it does.
This is the worst f-ing company to work for!!!!
THEY SUCK!!!!!! PERIOD!!
I have worked her in Oakwood, Ohio for a few years, It is the worst place I have ever worked! All the blogs I have read, seems to show the whole company sucks!
TF is not that bad as far as corporate America goes. The fact is that all of corporate America SUCKS these days. It was not always like it is now. Anyone would be much better off working for the government, either state or federal and would be treated a lot better than working for the robber barons in the private sector.
I'm considering an offer for TFS Waltham, MA in Legal dept. does anyone have any input as to the culture of corporate? Is TFS a compliant compnay with a good quality system and handle on the regualtory environment? Is Management driven by a balanced approach to quality vs. revenue, or are they completly clueless with regard to quality? How experienced is TFS dealing with manufacturing FDA Class II and III devices?
This is true. Insurance premiums went up. and some services decreased.. Hummm.. thats an interesting cost-savings. I thought Casper wanted a Nimble organization. This must mean that middle managers are next to go... Just remove a layer of management and essentially give everyone a promotion or demotion depending on how you look at it. !!
What about thermo germany?
Ignorant posters are wasters of internet space. The company's results, continued loyalty of the vast majority of the 35,000 employees, say all that has to be said.
I have better things to do than reply to ignoramuses... outtahere
Thermofisher are slave drivers!
Looks like the health insurance is going up again as well as the co-pay and out of pocket expense.
How do you know?
Great company...it's the leader of the industry. Those below complaining, would complain at any job...pretty obvious.
Wow, if you are that bold to write I think you had best find another job...that's ridiculous...get control of yourself?
The GE way or the highway.
T-F is so big its impossible to have an opinion that is accurate company wide. There are good and bad people, and good and bad products. By and large the rank and file are viewed only as oompa-loompas, by the executives who sit in their offices with views of the "pond." Yes games are played, like LR's farewell tour when he returned from China to retire...visiting Marietta, he lied through his teeth about how proud he was of the Forma craftmen, all the while knowing that his edict in China was to find ways to outsource those very jobs.
