Applied Calibration Services - Wilson, NC

What's going on at this calibration service provider? Why do they have such a high staffing turn-over rate?

I interviewed there. They

I interviewed there. They have had high employee turn over rate and wanted me to wear multiple hats. Not happening. They clearly have issues.

So, my girlfriend awoke me at

So, my girlfriend awoke me at 11:30 the other night and said, "Guess who's all over the Rumor Mill!" I had no idea what she was talking about, so I got up and low and behold, they are talking about him, the former Manager of Quality! I don't usually do this, but I want to help this guy. Here is what I know for a fact:

He helped start his company from initial conception through ISO 17025 accreditation. This process only took about 11 months, which is not bad at all. And with only 13 initial findings, the auditor said that most organizations (their first time out) have way more.

In reference to the comment about cal sheets being incorrect and them supposedly being corrected now that he resigned.
-He wasn't the only one that approved Calibration Certificates. -Did he sign off on some that still needed correcting, yes.
-Did others sign off on some that needed correcting, yes. Did they work together and get them corrected, yes.
-Is it still possible that since we are all human (some moreso than others) that errors will still be missed on a cal certs here and there, yes.

So, do they really believe that it was all the Manager of Quality's fault? Sounds like he's being made to be a fall guy to me!

I would also like to point out that he was also tasked with being on-site at multiple client sites, asked to be a salesman two days a week, all the while expected to be able to perform his Manager of Quality responsibilities. You as well as I know, this is virtually impossible.

While he was there, he was the greatest thing since sliced bread, even got a promotion and $10K salary increase, but now that he is no longer there, they are trying to make his name mud. He tried so hard to make a go of it, but they wore him down to nothing. I now know why he resigned from an $80K annual salary, the negative culture and drama, amongst other things that will not be mentioned here.

Ever heard this, when you point a finger at someone, you have three pointing back at you!

How do I know these things? Because I worked with him. His work ethic is strong and he will be a valuable asset to any company. Good luck buddy!

Honestly, who gives a rat's

Honestly, who gives a rat's ass about this piss ant company?

I am not sure what you guys

I am not sure what you guys are talking about. I have used them on numerous occasions and their turnaround time has been incredible. They are willing to handle items they don't have the capabilities to do yet and don't charge me an arm and leg to be the middle man. Although, in the past cal sheets were incorrect but now that has been addressed by their QA guy leaving. I wish ACS the best and look forward to sending them more business!

"And they have to

"And they have to sub-contract quite a few calibrations out. Why even use them?"....are they not marketing the "quality" team they have with AO?

We've heard the very same

We've heard the very same thing. Their turn-around times are horrific! And they have to sub-contract quite a few calibrations out. Why even use them?
