The people that works here is hardworking and need to be more appreciated.
Technicial I (Current Employee), Grand Prairie, TXMarch 10, 2015
Pros: benefits, nice co-workers
Cons: bad management
The work is overload. Many employees work over time. The hardest part of the job is when management expect too much and add more work but pay do not increase. Co-workers are amazing. All hardworking and fun to work with. All nice people.

Very bad place to work...
Lab Tech (Former Employee), Green Bay, WIJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: boot camp for any other job out there.
Cons: long hours, low pay, bad environment, poor inexperienced management, greedy corporation, quantity over quality, high turn over rate, inexperienced coworkers, no discipline
Decent place to start... If you're a college student. Once you have your experience, get out, quick. The management is awful, neglectful and no one in upper management care about the concerns of the employees. Starting pay is low and don't expect any raises.

Started out as a log in tech and moved all through the company departments, but never got a word of gratitude. Worked around the clock for the company with no appreciation. Supervisors played favorites and never helped in the lab.

Very unethical company - they would lie straight to the clients' face and not feel any remorse, even when the clients found out... upper level management/corporate also played no part in creating an ethical workplace. They would just turn a blind eye to all that was going on and not discipline bad employees.

Work environment is quite disgusting, and probably dangerous, considering all of the chemicals you get exposed to. Management cut corners all around. It's always QUANTITY over QUALITY. Numbers mean everything to them, even if they have no quality or integrity in their work.

**RUN**
Microbiology Lab Technician (Former Employee), Covington, GAJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: good place to get experience for recent grads
Cons: the whole building
Terrible place to work with terrible management. Loud, unprofessional people will do well here. The absolute worse place to work. If you do work here, only stay for 6months. If you work here any longer you will be very depressed. Most of the people who work here are very sad and depress people and have no life. Get your experience and check and run. Management lies and lies and lies. The place is a nonstop shop for DRAMA. Long hours and mandatory overtime. You stand on your feet 100% of the day and breaks are looked down on. People are so silly here they crowned themselves on being able to stay here and "survive" but you don't have a life AT ALL! Throw getting married or dating out the window if you want to work here. Your face will break out and you will be come very frumpy looking.

Not a good place to stay at for long. Extremely high turnover rate.
Laboratory Technician I (Dayshift crew) (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZDecember 30, 2014
Pros: hour lunch if you work day shift.
Cons: morale of company is low, overworked, favoritism..
This company has potential, however the management is not that great and you get overworked. Advancement is unbalanced, basically if you are kissing up to your bosses then you a shoe in for higher positions. It's extremely hard to get days off due to the company's policy Of having to give them a two week in advance notice for ONE day off. Favoritism is also a major problem with this company as well. If you are working night shift, you're completely ignored when it comes to advancement and getting days off because those that work day shift don't really want to cover you. Also look out for backstabbing from your fellow employees, just be sure to keep out of all the gossip no matter what. In conclusion, for recent graduates this company is a good to start off with but don't expect to make a career here I would highly suggest looking somewhere after you put your time in.

Lab Assistant (Current Employee), Grand Prairie, TXSeptember 7, 2014
Pros: great benefits, great training
Cons: schedule, busy
This place keeps you on your toes which is a good thing and trains you very well. The scheduling is difficult to manage at times but it does work out sometimes. The pace is fast, which I enjoy. Great place to start out and continue if you want a future in Microbiology.

Great starting job
Lab Technician II Main Lab Lead (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZFebruary 18, 2013
Pros: provide lunch once a month
Cons: healthcare is an arm and leg.
The job is very overwhelming and mainly based off of efficiency. It tends to over work their employees who are on salary and never satisfied because they are not efficient enough. It is a great job for someone who does not have an outside life.

Respect In the Workplace
Data Entry Technician (Former Employee), Green Bay, WIJanuary 17, 2013
Pros: can give you a new start after years of not being employed.
Cons: not eoungh pay for the physical demands of this position.
First let me say that FSNS gave me another start in the job market. I enjoyed my postion in the company but there was a lot of disrespect on the parts of some people choosen for the role of supervisiors. I think these people forget that people are human and have feeling. No supervisor should take down to the people they are to oversee.

The hardest part of the job was the heavy lifting on a day to day basic. The most enjoyable part of the job was having co-works help with what was not taught in the training process. I can say I did learn a lot about viruses and what it takes to detect them with the correct chemicals.

Stepping Stone Job
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Fresno, CADecember 4, 2012
Pros: a great learning experience
Cons: drama, holiday/vacation/sick days after 3 months, benefits after 6
First, this job is a great job if you just got your degree and need experience, but it's not a job that you can make into a career because to move up, it's hard. They hire a lot of young people and once they become lead or supervisors, they usually don't leave unless they are forced to.

The pay is not that great for the amount of physical work you have to do, especially in main lab. There are a lot of people there who like to create drama and they play favorites a lot. There are also a lot of people who act like they know it all, but they've been there for a few months A lot of power struggles, finger pointing, and drama. It's frown upon when someone speaks their mind and management don't really know how to handle all the drama going on so they pretend to not see.

Overall, this job consumes you and get ready to not have any free time because everyone starts off working nights.

Great source of knowledge and experience of food microbiology, but not much else.
Laboratory Technician II (Current Employee), Covington, GAOctober 28, 2012
Pros: great knowledge of the field gained, lab experience.
Cons: pay doesn't seem to be competitve, benefits only after 1 year with company.
I have learned a ton about food microbiology and what it takes to work in a professional lab, but the way this company is structured, it is only a career option for a few people. Even though the pay and benefits aren't good, the experience gained can surely be transformed into the career you want if this is your field of choice.
