TMI employees are underpaid and unappreciated and payment promises are denied, a former employee claims at

"Paid in peanuts, no appreciation & recognition, will fool you about everything, will promise big incentive payments, and when asked to pay they will deny on your face of any such discussions."

ZZP-er (Former Employee) says

"TMI komt afspraken over teruggebeld worden herhaaldelijk niet na. Ondertussen zelf drie keer initiatief genomen voor een vacature psychiater, maar het komt niet tot een inhoudelijk gesprek. Bijzonder voor deze ‘markt’, psychiaters liggen toch niet voor het oprapen."

"Set up machine cut oders and ship them at the end of the day you clean up area. Cons: pay not that good"

Traffic Controller (Former Employee) says

"This company needs help, hardly did anything for covid, made their employees take their own vehicles to jobs with no compensation for gas. Paying union dues but RARELY making union pay."

Sterile Processing (Current Employee) says

"A typical work day would consist of you cleaning commodes and hospital equipment. You also get walked all over like you are lower than dirt. My management doesn't care about you whatsoever. On the other hand I loved MOST of my co-workers! Hardest part of my job was keeping my composure towards people that treated me like nothing. There was nothing enjoyable about my job."

Management - GSA (Former Employee) says

"As a contract worker for TMI Management , I worked at GSA , a Government facility in Burlington New Jersey. The Manager and Supervisors were crooked , they played favorites and did not respect many employees. TMI was flexible about time needed for Cons: poorly trained and inconsiderate supervisors"

Vice President of Operations (Former Employee) says

"I was brought in to help build the company. I was responsible for 1 crew of 2 people that would clean several buildings at night and then I would go back behind them to check their work. Cons: worked some long goofy hours"

Traffic Controller (Former Employee) says

"A decent workplace for what it's worth, during the time I was there. I enjoyed the non-micromanagement while we completed our work. There just wasn't initially any room for advancement within the company."

Ouvrier polyvalent (Current Employee) says

"Mauvaise organisation et les machines ne sont pas entretenus"

Office Manager (Current Employee) says

"I went in to this job thinking I would be entry level office manager, not sales force learning how to do multi-level marketing. I do not enjoy sales door to door. I would not have taken the job if I'd have known that's what it entailed. I quit a job making a steady paycheck with the promise of a steady paycheck of what I was used to working my 80 hour weeks. I am totally disappointed and now am scrambling to find another job so I am able to cover my monthly bills. Cons: door-door "promoting" perfume, promoted in relation to how you sell product."

Fabricator/Contractor (Former Employee) says

"There were no advancements available or if there was it wasn't very common. There also was no positive uplifting management and management were busy bossing people around and belittling."

Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) says

"Not to bad to work for pay could be better. If you like order picking and fort life driving then you may like this job. Working at TMI was up and down far as pace coworkers were pretty good."

Former Employee - Calibration Technician says

"I worked at TMI Calibration full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Your just a number, you are not a person to them"

Current Employee - Technician says

"I have been working at TMI Calibration full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Work you like a dog. Care only about quantity."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at TMI Calibration full-time Cons: poor management, good ole boys support from upper will be set up for failure and thrown under the bus when its convenient to save management's hide."

Former Employee - Calibration Technician says

"I worked at TMI Calibration full-time for more than a year Cons: as previously mentioned, ZERO integrity when it comes to actual calibrations. Quantity over quality mentality, example: . Make your $105 revenue per hour or you will lose your job. I was asked by VP to get a piece of equipment out the door even when the TI was more accurate than the standard. They have no HR and thats the running joke. "A family business that cares"... haha thats funny. Work environment is run by raunchy talentless people and is run out of fear. I personally saw the Lead tech (the golden boy) take some plug gauges off the incoming shelf straight to the wax pot then to the QA bench. Horrible experience. Can't understand how they get so much business... oh wait, most of their customers just want the cert and dont care about the actual data. Can't forget he "Mandatory 8 hours overtime per tech" sign as you go leave on a friday.. Ouch! there goes the weekend....Glad I left..."

Current Employee - Senior Executive says

"I have been working at TMI Calibration full-time for more than a year Cons: maintain old does not respond the work station requirements"

Calibration Technician says

"I worked at TMI Calibration Cons: Can be long hours, 14-15 hr days at times. Poor Quality Assurance, Datasheets have wrong specs listed, some technicians just fill in numbers and datasheets without taking readings. Management will praise you one day for work you have done, then the next day written up for failing to meet employee performance goals. Technicians can take shortcuts on procedures, not acceptable at good calibration labs. Shop managers would talk to other employees about how they have written up other employees, this should remain private. At some locations, walking through the lab, some of the technicians have pictures of scantily clad women on their computers as background. Makes a real good impression on customers and inspectors, some of whom are women."

Former Employee - Sales Associate says

"I worked at TMI Calibration full-time Cons: If you are a job seeker with a disability and require a reasonable accommodation to apply for one of our jobs, you will find the contact information to request the appropriate accommoda"

Former Employee - Calibration Technician says

"I worked at TMI Calibration full-time for less than a year Cons: Horrible Management and Micro Managing"


"I have been working at TMI Calibration Cons: Strong leadership Great benefits Work life balance"

Former Employee - Calibration Technician says

"I worked at TMI Calibration full-time for less than a year Cons: Ridiculously understaffed, underfunded, and overworked. Training and proper preparation for any onsite work is a luxury that can almost never be afforded. All problems are addressed retroactively, even if potential solutions are identified beforehand. Standards are old, obsolete, poorly maintained, and in most cases in worse shape than the customer's equipment. Vehicles were always in terrible condition. Technicians are required to make the company a certain amount of money per hour ($135 when I left), and are threatened with write ups, lack of annual COLA raises, and termination for failing to meet the quotas. The quotas are insanely unrealistic, leaving technicians with no other option than bullshitting the vast majority of their work in order to make their dollars per hour, or quit. Consequently, most of the people who stay with the company long enough to be promoted have zero integrity when it comes to calibration and silently expect you to follow suit. PTO is forfeited after submitting a letter of resignation. You are not paid for any unused PTO. You are forced to have an hour lunch on your time card every day, even if you weren't given an opportunity to take a lunch because of their ridiculous op-tempo. Ten/fifteen minute breaks are rare. They expect you to be able to calibrate every T&ME ever created with a handheld meter and a paper clip, with no training, on-site, calculate measurement uncertainties for every test point, conduct all of the required research for the calibration, and complete all of the associated paperwork in about a third of the time that it should take a competent, hard working technician to do the job adequately."
