    Pros

    We have great benefits (insurance, holidays, PTO, education reimbursement) with friendly coworkers and flexible hours. We also participate in the Texas teacher retirement fund.

    This job can be stressful and demands complete attention to details. More thimgs around the lab could be automated to increase efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! The managers frequently hand out praise and show their appreciation for our hard work. If you're not getting praised here, you might need to reevaluate your work.

    Adequate staffing helps employees provide a better experience to patients without rushing and stressing out over all the other patients that are still waiting to be helped. Have better oversight that removes employees that are not customer oriented and do not provide a caring experience.
