    Pros

    The benefits and salary is good, that is all.

    Cons

    As a tech, you will be overworked and overwhelmed. There’s no room for growth within the position. The supervisor will show favoritism. The manager has no control over her staff. If is there an issue, she will sweep it underneath the rug. The manger is inconsistent with her training, her words are invalid. The turnover rate has increase during my term in the department.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisor need more training or step down from the position.
