Good job to start out but no advancement opportunities

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked in the receiving department and the workload was high some period of times. The main issue is there is no room for advancement and the overall atmosphere was depressing.

Please review other laboratory options you might have before joining here.

You can join here if you are new to the industry and need some experience but the longer you stay, the worse your mental health gets. People will make you feel used, treat you like a dog and try to prove your worthless. Overtime hours with bad management around finishing hundreds of samples every day. Please consider other laboratories before you want to join here.


Free coffee (from a rusted machine), you might some sweet coworkers who hardworkers


The company management does not care as long as they finish the million samples they get everyday.

Growth opportunity non existent

Paid poorly to do a job. Treated as a head count to make money for the company. New business means no extra benifits for employees, only for management with bonuses. Overworked and underpaid

Good for entry level, but don’t stay

This is a great company to learn the ropes of the industry. But don’t plan on staying. It’s hard to maintain the hours for a long time. There is very little room for advancement and it isn’t likely that you will leave your department for another.

A great place to work at for an entry level job

A great place to work at for an entry level job. They spend a lot of time training you to develop your laboratory techniques and skills. They also let you think of ways on working more efficiently. However, there is OT almost every single day and will tell you to work faster if you are working too slow.

Toxic environment to work. Backstabbing, gossip, etc.

People don't stay for to long. Overtime is mandatory, and every day. You don't have time to go home. Everyone is your boss. Supervisors don't know how to give feedback. They pin you on the wall in front of everybody.

Sample Receiving

No real opportunity for advancement. Work gets download to the lower levels often; no real "teamwork", everyone has to look out for themselves. Long hours and unreliable breaks.

Good place to gain entry level experience

Work life balance was very challenging in the microbiology department. You are expected to work weekends, time off is sometime denied, was a challenge requesting to leave early and work very late nights. The training program in Micro was very good and the people in micro were a pleasure to work with. The chemistry department had much better work life balance. Hard department to move up in and training was very poor.

Good job to start

It is good job to start but if you stay longer than a few years - you are stuck . Very bad management, not prospective place to work. This opinion is shared with many of my co-workers.

Overall Summary

The job itself is very thorough and enjoyable. The hours were sometimes very unpredictable however in certain departments the hours were regular. The training was thorough and it got you ready for the work you will be doing independently.

Good people, hours not so great

you work with a good team but the work life balance is not that great, if you show initiative you can learn a lot. Training is not readily available.
