Good as a starter job, but not for a long term career.
Pros: fellow techs and phlebs are great people.
Cons: short to no breaks, underpaid, overworked, understaffed, bad management
Management is horrible- won't even help with answering phones, even when it's obvious the techs aren't able to do so at that particular time. Supervisors don't stay for long. Techs and phlebs don't stay long either....The dollar is the main priority, not patients. The lab is understaffed, and employees are underpaid and overworked. 1st shift hours are all out of whack. There really is no 8hr shift, it has become 10hrs. That's a bad deal, especially since it's difficult to get off on time. Techs are treated like slaves. It's hard to get a 30 minute lunch break, you're lucky if you get a break at all.
