WHAT OUR EMPLOYEES ARE SAYING
I started my adventure with SCN BestCo in 2019. For all these years, I have stayed because the atmosphere is excellent, it is close to my home, but also because we are given the chance to progress in the company. I held the position of compression operator and specialist documentation operator before becoming a kitchen operator in the new VMS (vitamins, minerals and supplements) suite. I was the very first to work with the new equipment. I trained all the operators on the 3 shifts and I’m proud of it. Supervisors listen to our needs and ideas, and I enjoy working with my team. I am now a multipurpose operator and who knows, maybe I will be the next manufacturing team leader!
I really appreciate the work environment, which encourages collaboration and personal development. Life Science Nutritionals (LSN), a part of our SCN BestCo family, offers constant learning opportunities, which allow me to push my limits and constantly improve in my field. Knowing that I can grow professionally while working as part of a talented team is a source of motivation for me. The support of my colleagues creates an environment conducive to success and well-being. I’m looking forward to continuing to grow with LSN.
Principal Product Development Scientist
I love SCN BestCo because of the products, the passion and innovation and most of all, the people! My daily activities are always exciting and the cross functional team environment is very collaborative. As a Product Development Scientist, one of the most rewarding parts of my career at SCN BestCo is seeing the products that I played a role in formulating on national retail store shelves for consumers to enjoy!
Technical & Quality Control Manager
Working at SCN BestCo has been an awesome experience. I joined the company after graduating in 2021, and from then on, I’ve had the opportunity to build meaningful relationships and further develop my skills with the support of my peers. SCN BestCo’s culture is inclusive, making you feel as if you are home away from home. If I could elaborate on one of the things I like about working at SCN BestCo, it’s the work-life balance that the company provides to employees.
