good place to work, usually understaffed
People/staff are friendly and generally a good place to work, however, usually understaffed. More work than there are bodies. I feel the company lacks inclusion of all sites across the country.

Not recommeneded.
Hardest part of the job is dealing with patients. Not much career advancement. Not much proper training. Company likes to save on money. Very repetitive work. Work can be dangerous.
Medical Technologist | Toronto, ON | Sep. 4, 2018
Experience varies from departments
Everyday is busy and challenging, there are many changes and you need to adapt. The style of the manager's leadership has a direct impact on the work environment.

Lifelabs is a good place to start a future, but their job security is poor
My career at Lifelabs was steady and rewarding, but the management is lacking organization and the ability to grow into the future. There are to many "bosses" and they are not in touch with each other, causing mass confusion and a disorderly work place.
Prospatient care has improved over the years, and their benifit package is good.
Consthe lack of a union allows management to treat employees poorly, and favouratism is the norm rather than the exception.
