Very Fast-Paced Environment.
Clinical Laboratory Technician (Former Employee), Lake Success, New YorkFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: free lunch
Cons: short break due to heavy work flow.
A typical work day can be very stressful. Depends on the work load.
A very different environment working with animal specimen. I must say that it was challenging and an excellent learning experience.
Management was accommodating. My co-workers were very easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was a very heavy work flow, and not being able to take breaks. The most enjoyable part of the job was a good sense of accomplishment, despite the heavy work load.

Cons: no breaks, low pay
Management watches every move you make, lot of back biting...
Did not feel comfortable or safe. Kept the temp below zero at all times. Insurance was priced too high for the salary they pay.

Was both efficient and fun
Parasitology Laboratory Technician (Former Employee), Oak Brook, ILSeptember 30, 2014
Pros: efficient, friendly, fun
Cons: employees taking advantage of lax workplace
Management worked hard and was not afraid to get on the floor to work with employees. You never saw them sitting idle, they were always working harder than anyone else. They tried hard to give employees time off when requested. The supervisor was always trying to find new and better ways to work and actually cared about the job. I learned more about parasites than I ever wanted to because the management was knowledgeable and never had a problem explaining. The hardest part of the job was being told to sacrifice the integrity of my work by going faster than i was comfortable with because of the work load.

Disappointed
Parasitology Department Supervisor (Former Employee), Lake Success, NYAugust 7, 2014
Pros: better than having no job
Cons: working there
I worked here and was thrilled at first but the reality set in. They are about production numbers only! They don't care about the staff. There are no rewards from working there.

Data Entry (Former Employee), 1111 Marcus AvenueJuly 17, 2014
It was a night shift, so I typed for eight hours. I improved my typing speed. Management was minimal. Coworkers were so friendly and fun. Hardest part of the job was trying to stay awake all night. Most enjoyable part was going home to sleep.

terrible place
Distribution Clerk (Former Employee), New YorkMarch 17, 2014
It was my job to stain histology slides, cover slip them, match them with paper work and pack them up to their respective doctors and pathologists. I don't mind doing hard work but I had to do all of this at the same time, with a massive work load. Antech cared more about getting the shipments out at a certain time, then doing an accurate job. Also, the paperwork was extremely disorganized and it took a lot of time to find the files. I was being called in to work 6 days a week, and on Sundays working ridiculous hours. My shift was supposed to be 12 pm to 8:30 pm but I freuqently have had to stay overtime. I'll take the money but I was accused of taking advantage of the system. There was just a ton of work and I wanted to do it right, not quicker. But for antech, it's all about the money.

What made me quit was that after I had stayed until 11 pm the night before, the next day, my boss said that you have to reduce your overtime. But.. the kind of job I had, I could not just leave, I had to get the packages packed up. He basically wanted me to sign out around 9 pm and just work for free. I should be fair- it was probably his boss from management that told him that they can't pay for that much overtime.

I was working my hardest and to be labelled as taking advantage of the system to get more overtime is extremely insulting. Some of the other issues I had was the attitude I got when I called in on a snow day. It was extremely icy, and because I work into the evening, I was concerned about getting home. Basically, my boss told me that everyone else is here, why am I not here. No concern for my safety with this nasty attitude.

Anyways,
I lasted almost 3 months, and I burned out. It was very stressful going to work and I would NOT recommend this place at all. The other employees were nice, but they seemed very over worked and did not enjoy being there. Too much is expected of people there, and there is a lot of tension there.

Did anyone else have this experience? This was at new hyde park, ny but I'm guessing it is very similarly stressful.
