Great Coworkers - Pay low

The work environment was great but the pay was a bit low considering the cost of living these days and compared to other lab jobs . Overtime hrs expected .

Good place to get lab experience

SGS Lakefield is a good place to start when trying to gain lab experience. Most people don’t last more than 2 years. The pay has gotten better (started at $16 an hour, now making $21.50), but still living paycheck to paycheck. Management is alright, but has its bad moments.
