Pros: hour lunches, benefits, travel compensation
Cons: grant funded, lucky if you get a raise, no over time
I like working here, I like my job as a phlebotomist, but many of the positions are grant funded which means the government could end your job anytime they want to. The benefits were excellent, out of close to 4 years I only got a raise once and it was not a substantial raise but I did notice a small increase in my paycheck. I have 4 kids, my supervisor was awesome in understanding that I am a mom and sometimes things happen (which I tried to not let them happen as often as I can). All in all, it was a good ride while it lasted, conferences, trainings, I got a lot out of working here.
