Not worth it one bit
Medical Lab Scientist (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ME; Portland, ME – September 24, 2018
There are cliques that have been there for a long time, including the management. They don't like new ideas, they have little to no regard for family/life and work balance, and give no notice when they want your hours to change or even your work location to change. The pay is barely enough to make do, pto is used for holidays you can't work-since they limit the number of people to work on holidays and weekends at every location-so your vacation time disappears very quickly with very little you can do about it. It's hard work, and a lot of work, with zero room for mistakes and a half hour turnaround time for patient testing-and you get thousands per day. Training is rushed due to short staffing and unless you do many special projects or are going out every week with the manager, your review won't warrant you a raise or anything. I did learn quite a bit due to the training, as there was some I had never done before in my career, but the bullying from management wasn't worth it.
Possible new techniques learned, busy day, you get your breaks mostly, pay isn't the worst
holidays not paid-come out of pto, rushed training, short staff, busy/stressful, hostile management
