Lab Assistant in Thunder Bay, ON
on 19 September 2021
Bad management, overworked and underpaid
Management was bad they were unsupportive and disorganized while working there different managers wanted me to do different things there was no singular plan. They even wanted me to do tasks I was not hired for and the training was drawn out with a lot of policy readings with little lab time in the beginning. Scheduling was mismanaged despite me making it clear that I was a student and they would need to be flexible with my time slots. In regards to scheduling, management wanted me to call them to make sure I wasn't needed on holidays instead of them knowing they will need me and scheduling me in it's their responsibility to know that. Couldn't trust my lab supervisor/trainer as everything discussed with her would end up with management. This workplace asks for a lot for minimal compensation in return for large workloads and non-flexible work schedules.

Was great as G&T..
If you don't crawl up the correct alley or family member you'll likely find yourself laid off when push comes to shove. Join the boys club or be laid off. Be mindful they mathematically lay people off, your 3 months probation period is added to the year so 15 months before they start matching RRSPs great right? Wrong add 3 years to that so four years and 3 months they don't have too pay you what they have match for the Deferred RRSP program. The mass layoffs are simply math you climb the ladder position 1-5 potentially salary years of service etc only to be told there's life after ALS when they heard everyone to the boardroom for the layoff ceremony with others. Highly professional.

Be prepared to be exploited
-Do not recommend-Turn over rate is extremely high: leaving insufficient staff to carry out daily job requirements-Overworked: expect to do a job meant for 4 people-Underpaid: don't expect a raise because all you will get is a slap in the face-Promotions, raises and any recognition are given to the wrong individuals-Hard workers are used and abused so don't bother doing a good job because it is a waste of time and energy-You might meet some cool people-Highly unlikely to get an annual bonus because they will always come up with some excuse. You may get a free sandwich for all your hard work though..

Good place to work
Contrary to some of the reviews I've seen als has been a good work environment so far, as long as you're willing to put in the effort and actually work, you'll enjoy employment here.
Lab Analyst in North Vancouver, BC
on 29 June 2021
Routine tasks and unusual shifts, lack of job security and very low salary
The lab analyst position is a very basic job without any engaging challenges. It is more like working in a line of production of a factory. Might be good for people without any specific education. Do not think of it as anything which is even remotely close to a scientific job.

They ask behavioral questions first and then move on to technical questions. It was 50/50. The interview atmosphere was great. The behavioral questions were easy and straight forward. The technical questions were easy as well if you have an education.

Are you an honest person? Do you work hard and want to finish the daily tasks?
