The AGH Core Lab is a very toxic work environment. There is a clear lack of concern for the health and well-being of the techs and support staff. Managers ignore concerns, allow certain workers to bully other workers and have favorite employees that are allowed to break all kinds of rules. The morale is low and turnover is very high! There have been many unjustified terminations of very good (some long-standing) techs/support staff by one particular manager. The Core lab director is rarely present in the lab.
Management at AGH core lab needs reviewed and replaced by honest, capable, accountable people. Present
ones in charge are guilty of fabricating
reasons to get good, longstanding
employees fired! The employees many
years of service is disregarded and the
good reputation tarnished by falsified
claims that if investigated are made up
lies. The employees are cutoff after
many years of service with no income
nor health benefits and new employers
reject them because of the lies now in
their records. This should be considered
unlawful-basically a defamation of a
good, loyal employee to save the company money!

I had an interview with 2 phlebotomist that worked in the lab at AGH. They explained the interview process.
Expectation is at least 50+ if you are salaried, and they will dock your pay if you are under 40 hours any week.
The externship process took about 2-3 weeks, as I had already completed the preliminary steps for externship through Career Training Academy.
I have no problem working from home. At my most recent employment we started to send our coders home. I created a policy regarding this new process.
Once per "year" but somehow 12 months turn into 16 months. We get emails from the CEO "we are investing in our employees" which everyone knows means that management will get a nice BIG cushy raise & we will get 30 cents - and that would be considered a lot!
They do give bonus time for goals met in billing & otherwise it is accumulated per pay, which is good.
Get EVERYTHING in writing. They may promise a lot but as soon as you start they will forget everything they said to you. On offer if salaried it will state that you will work 40 hours per week. But management will schedule you for 50-60 hours per week, and they expect you to do it without saying a word.
