Fun place to work
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC11 March 2017
You're given a worklist to start from, prioritizing the work with the closest due date and you just do your work. I learned time management skills and the hardest part about the job is the repetitiveness of it, the most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the people that work there. Managers and supervisors are friendly.
Pros
Good management
Cons
Low pay

A good place to start
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Waterloo, ON22 January 2017
I'd suggest getting experience here, then moving on. Lab is high volume, which leads to many entry level jobs feeling more like factory work rather than scientific. Hourly pay is not great, especially when starting out, which is why there's a high turnover in the lower end jobs.

Management is quick to take away perks from employees (Christmas bonuses, forcing vacation etc) but doesn't really share during successful times.

Most enjoyable part is working as part of a group.
