Support from management

The management operates to best benefit themselves,not those they works with or the company. Unrealistic expectations need to be addressed so expectations are actually attainable.

Teamwork

The team was the only reason I stayed as long as I did. Constant communication and teamwork keeps the lab operational.

Freedom to work independently

The individuals who come in later, always have overtime because they are finishing all of the daily work as well as closing duties. This could be lessened if there were more people who come in later and stay till close.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The oldest employee (during my time there) was 30.

Career Development

Once you become a Lab Technician, there is nowhere to go unless the lab manager is let go.

Work-Life Balance

Absolutely none if you start later. Everyone has overtime, almost every day.

Job Security

While I was there, 30 people's positions were eliminated across the country.

Challenging Work

Very repetitive work

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have more people start later and work until close. Don't send everyone besides the closer home until atleast 90% of the general work is done. The closer cannot handle everyone's work, closing duties, and still leave at a reasonable time.

What I like about the company

The overtime pay really made my paycheck.

What I dislike about the company

No work life balance. At the end of the day; 1 person (or 2 max) was/were responsible for finishing everyone's work throughout the day, fixing any mistakes, and closing duties. That's way too much for 1-2 people, causing an excessive amount of overtime.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Train new employees instead of throwing them into things without a clear understanding. Be completely honest with employees and clients. Increase wages and give raises. Hire more employees so some employees are not working months straight. Organize office policies to reduce confusion and errors.
