Lets be honest, if your a lab assistant you wont be moving up in the medical field without an advance degree. That is anywhere you work so dont expect advancement. That being said Overlake will work you until you submit with frustration. Honestly, I would never be a patient here despite the semi free hospital stay given under benefits. Full time lab Assitants are trained in several different areas often times you are doing the job of 4 people for very low pay. At other places you can make 14 to 15 just doing phlebotomy alone. This place is cheap and they will get their money out of their employees. It is chaotic due to poor workflow and lack of process improvement. Some of the management/leads can not handle stress well, which makes the environment even worse than it actually should be. Coworkers are cool but you cant pay the wage they do, be that unorganized, have constant call outs, be short staffed and expect to keep people around!
Work schedule is good
Constantly call out sick, short staff, low pay, no raise for training, hours being cut due to budget/renovations
