Great Company but understaffed
Clinical Laboratory Specialist I (Current Employee) –  Bedford, TXAugust 7, 2018
Certain shifts are understaffed which can lead to some anxiety to make upload time. Lead techs are pretty awesome trainers and will help you out if things get overwhelming at times.

Management doesn't actually care to hear what we have to say. Most upper management hasn't been in the lab for 20 years so they are disconnected from the flow. The flow is VERY fast and VERY stressful. We were bought out and they increased the pay, but we are still underpaid for our degrees. There is no workplace culture because it will distract workers and make mistakes while testing. Music is banned. Phones not allowed. You are restricted to noisy breakrooms. Don't even bother showering because you'll just end up sweating. They have a/c but it's always like 80 degrees or hotter in the place because the machines make it hotter. It's hard to get anyone to adjust the heat situation. You feel like passing out or are drenched in sweat. They give you shift diff.
Pros
better pay, shift diff, 4x10 workdays
Cons
everything else

Great co-workers, poor executive leadership
Manager (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 3, 2018
The mission is pushed out almost daily but the actions taken by executives do not seem to support the mission. The majority of the executive team are very poor leaders. To be successful and advance, work/job balance will have to be skewed despite constant contradictory verbal support. As with any company, politics can make or break your experience.Those just under the executive level are skilled and competent leaders and a real joy to work with/for. Too bad these leaders can't mentor those above them!
Pros
Good compensation and benefits
Cons
Poor executive leadership

Change Pains - Poor Communication
N/A (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 18, 2018
Creative Testing Solutions just acquired 3 new labs and is still trying to define how the organization will look. People are afraid of losing their jobs and communication from Corporate is horrible because they themselves haven't decided how the organization will be. There are an excessive amount of meetings, trainings and initiatives piled up all at once. We need to catch our breath.
Pros
Benefits are inexpensive, pay is now competitive
Cons
High regulation doesn't give many opportunities for innovation

CLINICAL LAB SPECIALIST III (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMay 7, 2018
Training is really hard to come by and the time schedules make it hard for you to have a life outside of the job. It is nice for a recent grad who needs some experience but I would not make a career out of it.
Pros
tution reinbursement, pizza
Cons
short breaks and long shifts

High Paced environment
Clinical Laboratory Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Bedford, TXOctober 10, 2017
Long periods of time testing thousands of samples, followed by maintenance of instruments. I have learned how to work in a highly regulated environment. Co Workers are 100% hands on but managers are lacking some managerial skills and structure. Hardest part of my job is the lack of communication in between managers and supervisors on the floor. The most enjoyable part of the job is saving lives!
Cons
Short Breaks

Very small company so everyone is close. Very great place to work.
