Very quick results, productive work environment, and effective training in new technology
I thought the workplace was very organized and fast-paced from getting the patient's data to taking their blood all day. I learned confidentiality and assertiveness, also patient interaction and customer service. I thought the management was very approachable and understanding of their employees. My co-workers and I had very effective communication and were able to work together to get the job done. The hardest part of the job was how busy it would get. We would get from 180 to 245 patients per day, at one location. The part I enjoyed the most about my job was interacting with the patients and seeing some familiar faces, and building trust between us and the patients.
ProsRewards for good customer service

A calm, kind, and satisfying workplace.
I did my externship at Dynacare for six weeks, and in my short stay with the company I learned a lot. I learned that patient care is the most important aspect of our job and respect and professionalism are the best value an MLA/T should posses. My supervisor was very professional and very respectful.Working at Dynacare everyday was never the same, some days were very busy and stressful and some days busy but not as stressful.The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the patient satisfied with the care you provide them. Seeing them smile in the end makes the work satisfying.

Not a comfortable work environment
When hired at night shift you are stuck there for life. Even if there is an opportunity in other departments you don't stand a chance. The management does not want to move the night shift staff.

Good pay but horrible work environment
I would not recommend working there. I was discouraged as a co-op student. I was not provided any opportunity to learn and grow. I had a bad experience working there in IT department.

Salary is not sufficient...
Need more compensation especially for the floater position...Some location that are busy has no enough supply for butterfly needle for a reason that some employee is hiding or keeping that equipment for them selves...
