Specimen Processing. (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONNovember 22, 2014
Pros: reasonable hourly wages and the ability to always learn something & begin a new challenge everyday.
Cons: scheduled shifts late at night make it more difficult when you require public transportation.
While i was given the opportunity to complete my Co-op placement hours at Gamma - Dynacare, it was for a total of four short weeks (150 hours). I was assigned with one of the long - time employees to train not only giving direct instructions but to help me understand fully & answer any questions i had. In specimen processing, I started out at labeling – more... which was probably my least favorite of the work tasks. I got to learn how we entered the specimen in the computer system, sent tests to be centrifuged, as well as operated the centrifuge myself. My favorite parts were bar-coding and receiving shipments of specimens. Bar-coding was the final procedure in this department, so it was critical that you poured off the correct specimens, placed them in the correct department for testing and ALWAYS double check everything before sending it off. It was an amazing experience to actually work in a laboratory facility such as gamma, It gave me an idea of how employment will be out there and the hands on learning experience which helped improve on my techniques and performance. By the third week in to my placement i already was treated and felt as though i had just started a new employment. The hardest part of the job was trying to remember where each test was being sent & whether the test had special requirements. They had an excellent manager and staff. – less

Never work here
CLA (Former Employee), LondonSeptember 2, 2014
During my time here my job was used to threaten me multiple times. Hours were extremely erratic, and management was micromanaged and lacked direction. Working here you are constantly in a position of you're damned if you do and damned if you don't so if management doesnt want you there anymore they will have a reason to cut you. I dont believe the company – more... itself is bad, just the London location. Honestly the worst place I ever worked – less

Only as a Last Resort
CLA (Former Employee), LondonMay 24, 2014
Pros: it's a job.
Cons: it's just not worth it.
Worst place I've ever worked. Frequent intimidation and bullying, seeing co-workers crying was common. Like being stuck in an abusive relationship. I quit after 3 years of thinking it would get better.

Monkeys and bananas!
lab tech (Former Employee), londonFebruary 14, 2014
Working at gamma was like being on the Mickey mouse clubhouse! Uneducated hires whom barely passed their course. So many cackling hens. A lot of favoritism and workplace bullies. This company is not a stable job and is only suitable for newly graduated students trying to gain some experience. Very unprofessional workplace with cheap payroll and shady – more... management. . UNLESS YOU LIKE BEING USED AND THEN THROWN AWAY; get your OSMT or CMLTO and apply at a more respectful environment like the hospital.
