Companies will provide you with training on their specific procedures and culture. You'll also receive extensive training on safety and environmental protocols. They understand that you won't be able to manage multimillion-dollar assets right after college.

Yes you would not only need to be trained regarding processing of chemicals, operation of machinery used for processing, etc. Additionally, the company will also train you with safety procedures to teach you to how to safely handle those chemicals. And lastly they would like to protect their proprietary info so there will be trainings related to that aspect as well.

[LA Opinionated Advice] Typically anything dealing with the process is proprietary information. The larger the company, the stricter on regulation towards following procedure. There is no way for anyone to know the exact procedure for every lab. Chemical companies will train you, but this highly depends on the role you take. If you are entering the role of a researcher, there is still training, but they will judge you on your past experience and ability to learn process fast in this job. You will always receive training. Training will just be limited / catered towards the position you choose. If it is not a research role, you will most likely receive training unless they hired you on because you had experience with a reactor that they had never used before. When you do not receive training is most likely when the company does not see the position you hold as priority, but they would still like see someone to establish a department or find a solution.

Yes, all companies are going to give varying amounts of training to help get you up to speed when you first start. The training program itself may look different, but companies recognize that what you learn in school needs to be supplemented so you can be effective in the workplace.
