    Pros

    There was no up side to working there, too much work for not enough pay and no 15 minute breaks allowed.

    Cons

    The job of lab aide was underpaid at $13/hr. I had written a 10 procedure manual for myself to do the job and that didn't cover everything that was needed to be done by me. Plus the poor girl who had trained me, who by the way was extremely competent, was only being paid $12.50/hr and had been there 6 years, are they crazy or what. Plus no mandatory 15 minute breaks per 4 hours of work a;;owed.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees correctly and give the proper breaks.

    I worked at Acupath Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of except the health benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Too many to count. First off, the CEO is unprofessional and the environment is chaotic. The HR Department is very poorly run. Lab was also chaotic and unqualified workers process specimens. All jobs are unstable and they can let you go without any notice. It was like walking on eggshells there, you never know when are going to be fired without warning. Dedication and loyalty are definitely not appreciated at this company. Raises and bonuses are non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    None, except for finding another job as Acupath appears to be failing miserably.

    I worked at Acupath Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    The people you work with directly are great.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no job security and if you get laid off, they don't give severance
    (no matter how long you worked there), they don't pay out vacation, and they immediately cut off your insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck addressing all the problems that resulted in having no specimen and having to lay off twenty people!!!
