When I started at Mid America Clinical Labs it was a decent job. I learned new things about all sorts of different tests and how to process and ship them for testing. A typical workday for me was 0800-1700. I commuted back and forth from my hometown to Carmel. The drive was long due to construction. When you work at a PSC, you are responsible for greeting patients, data entry of their demographics, entering orders into the computer, calling the patient back, drawing patient via venipuncture, processing and shipping specimens. There are days when you would get patients that would come in right before closing and would have off the wall tests and you were required to process all specimens before shipping to the main lab for testing. Some days I wouldn't get out of there until 1800 or so. The hardest part of this job was that the supervisor was sometimes not readily available to answer questions and or help out when a patient was upset or hostile. I didn't like my co-workers as they saw the work environment as a competitive area. The most enjoyable part of my job was at the end of the day when I could clean up and GO HOME! It was frustrating when I needed a day off I had to give a months notice. If you needed two consecutive days or more you needed to give at least 2-3 month notice.
Supervisors are not great and HR staff does not listen to requests
