    I worked at Associated Regional and University Pathologists full-time

    Pros

    The benefits at ARUP are amazing and start on day one, plus the training is very through and makes you feel very prepared for the job. If you enjoy lab work, aren't grossed out easily, and have an open schedule, then you'd probably excel here.

    Cons

    Some of the shifts are terrible and there is a very steep learning curve. It's very difficult if you need time off or want to switch to a different shift. I worked an overnight shift and there was no camaraderie at all in my pod. The environment was very much like an impersonal machine during my shift.

    I worked at Associated Regional and University Pathologists full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are always there to help you as long as you know the procedures in the lab. They try to be flexible, as long as you make your 70hrs for the week. Definitely teaches you to be independent and a team player, including multitasking skills. One of the best employee benefits offered.

    Cons

    One of the most stressful department in the lab. 7 on/7 off shifts might be difficult to some, working 10hrs a day.

    I worked at Associated Regional and University Pathologists full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, professional environment, free continuing Ed courses offered during lunch for ASCP license renewal. Most of the people I worked with there were hard working and kind individuals.

    Cons

    Most cons were personality differences with my lab supervisor, and also wanting to get out of the lab/healthcare industry. I knew friends in other departments that loved working there! The people you work with in the lab will make or break your experience. I Felt like I would be stuck doing the same thing forever with little incentive to get better because of how small the raises were over the years working there (this is more of an industry problem than something specific to ARUP).

    Advice to Management

    Practice with conflict resolution, interpersonal skills, and empathy go a long way for employees.
