Great place to work with supportive staff alway eager to educate.
Pros: good benefit packages, shift differentials, pay incentive
Cons: short breaks, economical struggle in healthcare causing budget cuts affecting all employees
- I worked second shift which is one of the busiest shifts in terms of in and outpatient volume. We service many outpatient clinics and doctors offices so we have a lot of processing being done. I usually do a rotation of ordering and receiving, aliquotting specimen, delivering specimen, and collecting completed specimen for tubetracking.
-I have learned a lot as far as the functions throughout the lab and how each department aids in the identification of disease.
-Overall management works well but with many female-dominated workplaces there tends to be cliques and favoritism.
-My coworkers enjoy sharing their knowledge and are very helpful in assisting with workflow
-The most difficult part of the job is having the ability to multitask and prioritize.
-The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you are making a difference in healthcare.
