Medical Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) – Sandusky, OH – November 10, 2017
Firelands Medical Center is a good place to work. Currently the lab is undergoing a lot of changes. With bad management at the lead of the changes it makes it for a place to work right now. Management does whatever they see fit with no concern on how things affect employees. Management does not effectively communicate with staff and does not effectively use good employees

I was there for years. I did not have Friends or Family there when I got hired. I was always given the workload nobody wanted not to mention the hardest . And I was not even given fair pay or bonuses. After many years of hard work and great reviews with many performance awards when a fulltime position finally came up it was given to an outsider of the department which was Friends with the Big Boss. Very ungreatfull to the common hard working individual. No job security unless your Friends or Family they will replace you whenever and with whoever they wish.
Seeing clients was the most enjoyable part of the job. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with documentation. Managment was helpful and very supportive. Workplace culture friendly and accepting. Interested in client well being. Offerred opportunity to learn with many CEU's credits available.
Does not value long standing hard working Employees

Friends and Family are 1st before anything. Everyone is replaceable unless you are one or the other. Family/Friends by far are treated better with job assignments/hours given as they are always 1st and foremost. Wages and time off are too not equal to regular Employees. Director will replace you no matter how long your employment they do not value or care about their staff if someone they know wants your job they get it.
fast paced/stressful a times/ability to multi-task is crucial/ability to learn quickly and be able to main composure during stressful times/able to communicate with physicians and public on a daily basis and maintain HIPPA compliance.

What started out as a job to get me through school became an opportunity to grow within the company. My dedication and hard work took me from an entry-level position to promotion after promotion after promotion. Hard work really does pay off!! If you are willing to work hard, have a great attitude, are committed to your job and are enthusiastic, then Firelands is the place for you. There are so many different departments within the organization, that the opportunities are endless! So...what are you waiting for?

The pay is about a decade behind the times. The management is worse than horrible, there are people sitting in roles simply because they've always sat in them. Extremely antiquated practices, management style, and philosophy of care. Technologically behind, does not offer advanced training to nursing staff and thus is a horrible place to try to advance your skills or knowledge. I wouldn't recommend working here to any person. Ever.
Not busy, so your patient load is lower if you're tired of being overworked, I suppose this could be a pro.
Essentially every single thing you can think of: pay, benefits, on the job training, preceptorship experience, management interactions and practices

No loyalty to long standing excellent employees. Will get rid of you for no reason at all. Management is terrible won't listen to anything you have to say and if you can't help them climb the ladder you are not important. Relatives of administration can do and act whatever way they please with no repercussions.
