Long days/nights
Laser Technician (Current Employee) –  Streetsboro, OHApril 10, 2017
Have Long hours from 10-18 hours days, from preforming procedures and driving. Hours can be good, just no time to schedule anything during the week, and no pay for being on-call for the weekend, You do learn a lot during procedures and making patients feel better once they leave the Operating Room,
Pros
good Pay
Cons
Long hours of driving

In Fairness you need to know
laser technician (Current Employee) –  ChicagoJanuary 17, 2016
I felt manipulated, played with:

50% below national avg. pay, no on call pay, 40-60 hours paid only 1/2 rate not 1 1/2 as lead to believe, told to sleep in Van, No meal allowance even though was out of town 24+ hours, 100% accuracy is only considered mediocre performance to management,

Pro: get to work with lasers!, never the same thing, a lot of hours away from home
Pros
Lasers
Cons
they are not concerned about your financial well being, or family life

Interesting and challenging job, chances to travel to different places each day.
Laser Technician (Former Employee) –  Streetsboro, OHOctober 15, 2014
Scheduling could be difficult not knowing until the evening prior to the following work day what your schedule would be for the next day. I would travel to hospitals within Ohio and the surrounding states to set up surgical lasers in the operating rooms and assist the surgeons during the procedures. Most often the cases were given to a single Laser Tec and it was rare that cases would cross and you would see any of your other co-workers. The most difficult part of the job was not knowing if or when you would be working the following day until after 5pm that day.

Great Company if your single
Healthcare Laser Specialist - FT (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLDecember 11, 2012
Every work day was different. One day you could work two hours and the next sixteen.
My co-workers were great. They were always there for me if I needed help and vice versa.
The hardest part of the job was not having a set number of hours and driving across the state on a daily basis. After a while it takes a toll on the body.
