    I have been working at Miraca Life Sciences full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supervisors provide opportunities for you to cross-train and learn different areas of the lab and open positions internally first. Great teammates that genuinely care about the patients we serve.

    Cons

    The shifts in the lab are mostly later hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your teammates and letting them learn from each other's strengths.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Miraca Life Sciences.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of about 15 typical interview and scenario type questions ("name a time when' and describe) and review of your resume and skill sets. Typically lasts approx. 30-45 minutes with only one Histology supervisor or team of supervisors. Afterwards a tour of the lab is offered where you are shown the process in progress from glass doors outside of the lab.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in five years?
      Name an experience where you had to multitask? Make a difficult decision? Make a decision without consulting a supervisor?  
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    NEGOTIATE. I cannot express this enough. Like most employers they will low-ball you, so be prepared to negotiate and make sure to get this in writing
