A typical day begins and ends on the phone, any intervals are filled writing emails, reports, or logs. The QC dept is the face of the company's clinical laboratory controls sector and a high level of customer service and professionalism is required.

The hardest – more... part of my job, besides being restricted to an antiquated in house software, is the lack of reward for performance. I enjoy helping people, and when you can troubleshoot a problem with a customer, solve their issue and make them confident about the clinical care they provide, it almost makes sitting behind a computer screen all day worth it. – less
