Company reviews
"Good people, bad management "
Former EmployeeQuality Assurance Auditor
The job is self is good. It teaches you a lot of useful office and communication skills. However management is often difficult to deal with due to whatever mood they are in that day. Other then most of management the people in CRL are fantastic and making working there worth it. Very knowledgeable coworkers that would probably be better suited then other management.

"Entreprise qui respecte ses alternants"
Current EmployeeBusiness Developer (H/F)
Très bon entreprise manque un peu de flexibilité, Charles River France dépend trop du modèle américain.

"Management is Horrible"
Former EmployeeProduction Technician
Management will make or break a job and this facility is one of them. 90% of thr employees are drama filled and Managers don't care about personal or family lives at all especially pertaining to single parents.

"Nice and exciting "
Current EmployeeCommis
I started in one place in the company but decided to move/change positions I’ve been there for almost 1year and 4 months and liking what I’m doing. They give you Scrubs to wear depending on the job you’re doing. Apply and job this fun and exciting career.
