Laboratory department is understaff that we have to work overtime a lot of times. Compensation is great.
Senior Clinical Laboratory Scientist (現在は退職) – Vallejo, CA – 2018年6月25日
Everyday is always, I would consider a challenging day and a busy day. We start the day pulling out all pending from previous shift, which a lot of times, theres a lot. Clean up the area as well as take care of all pending and endorsement from previous shift. I always check my reagents first before the start of my shift, do the QC (quality control) or if there is a need for calibration. I Have learned a lot working from a smaller laboratory to a busy and bigger one as well as the work culture here in California. I was able to hone my skills in every section of the laboratory to the fullest when I was at Kaiser. The management is good and as well as workplace culture. Hardest part since its is always understaffed, we are forced to work different schedules back to back and overtime, but the good thing is were paid well. I enjoyed the teamwork, wherein we really help each other whenever one department is really busy and we all work hard with accuracy and always in timely manner.
Very good health insurance benefit and good salary
Understaff and they will scheduling is not as good.
