Medical Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Canada – 1 November 2016
The best thing about my job was my Co-workers and my Site Supervisors. They were all so kind and empathetic and were always available to help when you needed help regardless if you've been with the company for a few months to many years.
The most disappointing part of the company was that whenever we had issues or concerns, they heard you but they didn't listen to you. For example, staffing and workload. Even when patients complained, especially in regards to wait times, they were often heard, but never listened to.
Unfortunately, at the end of my many years of service with the company, I felt underappreciated and replaceable.
convenient locations, good co-workers, reasonable pay
Medical Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 7 December 2016
Greeting patients and entering them in order of arrival, data entering their information and procuring labels for the vacutainers. Collecting blood through venipuncture and processed it in a centrifuge to prepare for testing. Packages the samples in a tote for the courier. Performed ECGs and hooked up Holter Monitors. Good, understanding manager, overwhelmed with number of labs under her care. The supervisor knows us on a more personal level. Co-workers are great and work hard except for a few slower ones who don't prioritize their work load effectively. The rush can be overwhelming when patients complain and there's 10 things you need to do at once. But you get the satisfaction of putting in a hard day's work and seeing the happy faces of patients.
Great job but employer needs to impove employee/employer relations
Medical Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 20 September 2016
On an average day the lab would see 130 -200 patients a day depending on the location. You learn to work fast and effetely. My co-workers were a great team but the management a work in progress. Hardest part of the job was dealing with sick kids and the best part was seeing them get better.
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.
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
Always offering trading and refresher programs to include proper handling and transport of hazardous waste, Directed recruitment/ staff development initiatives to maximize productivity and revenue potencial through development of a sales team.

Courier Driver (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 July 2016
Load up the car or van you may drive that day. Load supplies and empty bags to labs on the routes. Do a log book to put information down for location of pick up or drop off time and how many to be dropped off. My co-workers was good. Management could have been better. Meet and talk to other lab techs.
excellent place to work, great support and room to grow and move forward, great staff and managers.
Medical Laboratory Technician+ Site Lead (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 October 2015
I enjoy working for LifeLabs as its a fun but proffessional place to work. I have worked opening and closing at several locations, opening right on time and being presentable and smiling is very important to me. The management is great as they are always there for me and very supportive.The hardest part of my job is dealing with angry patients who are complaining. But know to diffuse the situation or guide them to higher up athortities and being understanding and empathetic.
