Medical Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Thorold, ON – 8 May 2017
Great place to work up until a few years ago. Ceo and other management needs improving. Lab closures to save money, but closed the wrong areas. Niagara is a great need of a testing lab and that is the one that closed.
Casual Clinical Tech Assistant (Current Employee) – Richmond BC – 2 May 2017
I work for one of the largest medical company in Canada. We have patients lined up from 530 AM. Each day is challenging and different. I love my co workers and since I have been casual and work in different labs everyday I have adapted to each lab and my coworkers so its always a team work and every one is comfortable working with each other strength and weakness. My manager is the most professional and understanding person I have worked with. She is always welcoming if we have issues in the lab or with any of our schedules. I love my job because everyday I meet different people and its always a experience and also its multi tasking so I am always on my toes.

Management likes to play musical chairs too often and usually with players who don't understand enough about their seat. The more this happens the less people want to stay there. It used to have great leaders who know the job they manage. Now it's filled with so many people who just don't know. So, they are unable to lead, because they simply lack the knowledge and skillset.
Clinical Technical Assistant (Current Employee) – Maple Ridge, BC – 6 April 2017
It is a hectic place to work. You feel extremely overworked and most of the time its incredibly understaffed. The management is great and always willing to help but it can be very overwhelming at times.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 6 April 2017
Lifelabs used to be a fun and great place to work, until new management came in. There is a lot of favoritism and they treat you like lab rats. Work, work, work. Constantly watching over you. I do not recommend anyone applying to this company. If you like feeling belittled, over worked and getting pressured, this is the perfect place for you!
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 3 April 2017
Lifelabs created a happy / sad type work environment for me. I loved to help all the patients that were home bound, but to follow a patient through to the end of their time on this earth was a very difficult position to be in. It makes you really appreciate life.

Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Kimberley, BC – 7 January 2017
previously worked at this location, it is very small and stuffy. staff were friendly at beginning, but then turned two faced and accused me of doing false things. jealousy, staff drama, and lots of behind your back talk as it is a very small town and everyone knows your business.
good work hours and pay
working with two faced people, no recognition for job well done, very poor and amature managment
Clinical Laboratory Assistant (Current Employee) – Duncan, BC – 12 December 2016
Daily duties involve checking the temperatures to avoid compromising specimen, performing proper decontamination of the phlebotomy rooms and ECG rooms. Packing courier runs to send off to the laboratory for testing. Performing phlebotomy and ECG's throughout the day. My co workers are all so supportive and we help each other learn new things every day. I would have to say that the patients are the hardest part of the job. The method for phlebotomy and ECG's and the technically things will always borderline the same procedure, whereas patients are always different and you can never be sure of how they will react to something. That being said, I do enjoy working in customer service and love being able to meet new people and develop my skills as conflicts arise.
