Research Laboratory Technician Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Research Laboratory Technician?

Research Laboratory Technician in Regina:
"I'm entry level so I can't say much but.."
Pros: Im mostly filling papers because of all the new people here for the summer. Theres not much soil to test when 25 people are working in a lab built for 5.. I'm glad I get to work by myself though, it's very quiet :) it's an easy job even when I am in the lab. It pays well too.
Cons: The workers they hire aren't professional in the least, some take their job seriously but I can't say the same for the majority. The same issues are brought up every single week about simply cleaning pop after yourself and filing out sheets properly.
