Responsibilities

Our employees describe us as very fast, very flexible and lots of fun. We are a young company (started in 2012) and we are now just shy of 1000 employees in approximately 40 offices around the country.

In a nutshell, we provide air quality testing services, water testing and wastewater management services, and solid waste/landfill gas management services. Regulations drive the need for our services but our unique capabilities allow us to add value (e.g., new streams of income) to clients beyond environmental compliance. For our families and communities, we strive to protect the air they breathe, the water they drink and the soil on which they live.

Sample Control Laboratory Technicians are responsible for ensuring that samples received are documented and stored correctly. They are usually the first point of contact between the clients’ samples and the laboratory and, as such, are responsible for immediately notifying the Group Leader to receipt, volume, preservation, labeling, or other discrepancies that could affect the laboratory’s ability to efficiently and profitably generate complete and accurate sample results on time, and meet the expectations of our clients.

 

We are looking for a part-time, temporary Sample Control Laboratory Technician who will be working with our laboratory based out of Orange, CA.  The temporary assignment will begin as soon as possible, and will end on December 31, 2017.   The schedule will be as listed below.  Note: training will take approximately two weeks from the time of hire, and weekend work may be required (Saturdays).
