Depends on who you work for
Lab Technician III (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE 19803 – May 23, 2017
Depending on who you work for will make a huge difference here. There are some scientists who are very demanding without understanding what the job entails and there are those who understand what you can accomplish in one shift. A typical day is not stressful, unless you are the type of person who likes to get involved in gossip. There is a lot of gossip that goes on, although there are the usual culprits that spread it/engage in it, and avoiding them will let you avoid most of the gossip. But overall the job isn't very hard and it pays well for the title. Bonuses are a joke, raises are laughable and promotion is non-existent (a lab-tech can only be a lab-tech, there is nothing higher without a MS/PhD, only degrees of title from Lab-Tech I to Lab-Tech IV then Sr. Lab-Tech V and VI). But if you are content with just being a lab tech then this could be the place for you.
