Working as an animal lab technician for the animal resources department was by far my worst job. Management will use an abuse you for there own benefit. They are rude You never know when they are in a bad mood. Very hostile work environment. There is favoritism beyond belief.Constantly ease dropping during breaks and lunch’s. Nothing but drama and tattletale from co workers. You literally feel like your in high school all over again. There is never anything done about it. HR has been called on the animal resources department so many times and nothing is ever changed for the better. Salary raises are a joke. If you don’t suck up to management you won’t get any where. Worst employee turnover. Incidents have occurred when an employee is hired and has literally only worked two days and then quit. The lack of employees to work ratio is ridiculous, pay is not worth all the extra work that is given to a person. I would never recommend this particular job to anyone.
