Very busy work environment working with excellent staff who knew exactly what to do following guidelines. It is an ISO standard lab which had solid guidelines and instructions.
Working along mining industry and when the industry slowed to a crawl, then the impact was immediate. Two staff members were kept on while all were laid off temporarily and permanently.
Management changed considerably with much emphasis on the Human Resources department making staff decisions over and above the Manager in the Yukon.
Exit surveys were conducted which only a few were selected and made major impacts on the decisions made by management and human resources. It would be much fairer if all that exited were given the survey.
I enjoyed the lead hands as I had to work closely with them. Working together we can get through the work orders in a timely fashion, under extreme pressure and with no errors on my part in the office. No work orders get passed without consulting the client and receiving directions on how to proceed.
This was one of my best work experiences ever.
