Minimally staffed company with emphasize on fast turn around
Microbiology Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 5, 2018
This company has provided a way to make ends meet and if you're fresh out of college, you'll probably be able to find work here because they're continuously cycling through staff. The hours are long because the company is minimally staffed, and will typically be very late. The pay is lower tiered, and the primary focus here is to have fast turn around. That often comes at the expense of the quality of tests. Very outdated software system and will virtually handwrite everything on paper, then transcribe that to a computer system. Half of the day is spent on paperwork at this company and they refuse to upgrade the inefficient system.
The staff on the technician level are friendly and is probably the only positive aspect about the company. With that being said, undereducated and poor performing staff members will be promoted because of the contacts and favoritism shown. The focus here is fast turn around and have feasible deniability when that comes at the expense of quality.
I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone that has the means and time to apply somewhere else.
