Became less intelligent with this position.

Health Support Technician (Current Employee)

ProsIf you like to be lazy, not think at work and not get fired for anything, this could be the job for you. Working in the public can be really great at times, the people you work with are very genuine.

ConsThe pay was horrible. I personally love my job, I have short days and most of the time have great moments throughout the day. But to keep this job, I had to get a side job waiting tables like I did all through college. Other people in the same job I have, Health support technician, are far less qualified.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more qualified people, and pay them better.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
