Good Place to gain experience
Clinical Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYDecember 28, 2014
Cons: short breaks
My work environment is pretty good. My day starts with the daily maintenance of the analyzers, followed by making reagents, refilling the reagent and running the controls. Since i have six analyzers, i have to make sure all of them are working properly. If any of them is not working, i try to troubleshoot myself. If i can't, i call the technical support for the service. STAT samples are given more priority. I have nice coworker and a lab aid working with me and we work as a team. What i consider hardest part of the day is when i have to fight for controls. And the most enjoyable part of the job is when i get the work done before my shift ends.

Shiel Medical Laboratory- The Experience
Client Service Representative (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYSeptember 1, 2014
Working at Shiel Medical Laboratory has been, by far, the most unpredictable portion of my life. Upon waking in the morning, several things are certain: the sun is out, public transportation will be delayed, and work awaits me. Once I get to work, however, is when all certainty has flown out of my grasp of reality, not to been gripped again for nine or so hours. Upon entrance, the frantic speed-walking of fellow employees foreshadow my own to come, though, day after day, I dismiss these signs as my own over-analysis of a co-worker who is probably on their way to the facilities. As the door to my department's office opens, the shrill sounds of countless phones ringing at a single time pierce my ears for about three seconds, until my ears become numb to the familiar blaring. As I check my mailbox, a routine first act, I come to find that a colleague is waiting for me on line one, no matter, I am quite glad to speak with him or her, let's see what I can help with. About a second prior to lifting the phone, I am informed that a client is also looking to speak with me, which is fine, I can help them both within a timely manner, though as this thought crosses my mind, the laboratory manager is paging me, as I wonder how he knew I was present, as I am about an hour early, afterall. This is the beginning.
Nearly one hour in to work, and I have cared for and consoled four doctors, two nursing supervisors, several medical assistants, and three colleagues from different departments, at which point one may say that I am doing a fine job, no need to get comfortable though, the disgruntled – more... clients have not become disgruntled just yet, though I know it's only a matter of time, for this is now a waiting game. Five minutes later- a fellow representative, appearing quite emotionally disheveled, explains to me that a physician is on the line, and just finished swearing at her for quite some time while accusing her of wrongdoing to his practice, to which I reply "Okay, let's see if we can calm him down", I ready myself for the onslaught of verbal attacks that can possibly (probably) ensue, but no, they did not come, as I effectively put his worries at ease, so it would appear that, indeed, we were able to calm him down. While the repetitive nature of these occurences are the norm, every situation is always unique, requiring a different approach to each personality, with each issue seemingly more cumbersome than the last. The only thing that has become expected is, at the risk of sounding cliche', the unexpected, making Shiel Medical Laboratory the most unpredictable, yet most exciting company I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of, and the tools I have acuired there will remain a part of me for the remainder of my life. – less

most of the shift I worked with were team players...
Client Service Representative (Former Employee), Brooklyn New YorkMay 7, 2014
Pros: most people were nice
Cons: management; and traveling into the bny
Job duties were repetitive. Coworkers were nice for the most part. Management is were the problems begin...Management is more interested in keeping their "friends" happy than performing the jobs at hand. Discipline was never "across the board"; it depended who you were.

Overall an ok place to work if you can deal with all the cronyisms!

It's a good place to work but can be overwhelming at times. Co workers are friendly, management is management but hey it's a job that was interesting and never a dull moment.

Avoid working here!
Client Service Representative (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYJuly 5, 2013
The worst company to ever work for. Management has no concept of managing anything. Work environment extremely hostile. Pay is very low and work responsibilities very high. No accountability system, its all about who you know and not what you can do. Your skills and effort will never be appreciated.

Confined work space.
Dispatcher (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYMarch 5, 2013
Pros: great starting pay
Cons: one 30 minute break throughout 10 hour shift
Typical day at work meant sitting in front of a computer answering the telephone, making phone calls and sending emails to drivers all shift. Didn't learn much at this job other than communication skills. Co-workers, some were great to work with, others were out there to make your life miserable as you worked, The most enjoyable part about the job was going to drive a route and pick up specimens.

No team work
VNS Representative (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 6, 2012
Pros: overtime
Cons: no advancement/no growth
As a VNS representative, I extract data from the Visiting Nursing Services data base and enter them in the form of a pre-scheduled requisition order in our Auto lims database. I have learned the variations of tubes that can be used for different tests, which helps me as a phlebotomist. Unfortunately, there is no team work if mistakes are made, therefore there is no depth in the relationships formed with co-workers, just cordial manners. My supervisor likes to hold on to good employees. He does not give room for growth, bombards you with responsibilities outside of your job criteria, and he does not promote advancement.
