    Pros

    Colleagues are nice. There’s a lot to learn.

    Cons

    Management is the worse. There’s no work life balance. They expect so much but doesn’t even help out the staff. You’ll be worn out if you work here. Too much work load but no staff to cover.

    Pros

    - located at paya lebar/aljunied which is kind of centralised

    Cons

    - the female management there are more bias towards the men than females there and they tend to reprimand the ladies more as opposed to the men - the female management tend to treat the malays better than the chinese which i as a chinese feels very unfair as this is racism - the whole place is literally like a chinese vs malay thing as the malays there dislikes the chinese - during fasting season, everyone shld be entitled to only 30mins break but the malays use praying as an excuse to take 45-60mins break and this is unfair to the chinese and other races in the company

    The best workplace ever !

    Pros

    Honestly, the job scopes and salary is great. Very easy to be done. OT for more money I guess.

    Cons

    - As a locum, the flexibility is a scam unless you have school. If you would to not come they would not make it obvious, but you can definitely tell the unhappiness from them. - Your whole entire existence there is to make the full timer’s life easier. You are nothing but a spare tyre or a tool and you will not be appreciated for your hard work and will definitely not be treated like a human being that will fall sick as well. - Apparently, the title of a Locum is just for show 😀 You are considered as a full timer and is expected to work the same amount of workload as a locum. - Every good things that happened would not include the locums but only the full timers (except when they are generous enough to treat us food) because apparently, the locums doesn’t exist and did not share the same workload and sufferings as the full timers :D. - The level of toxicity here is so high it’s suffocating. - Managements are bias and two faced and would talk bad about other employees behind their backs. - Fake people everywhere. They would be nice to you in your face but behind they would throw a millions of venomous daggers. - Can’t decide on a set of rules and will keep making changes and add in unrealistic expectations and rules. - They like to bash people in group chat for one mistake instead of talking it out face to face. - With only 30mins of break time, all you could eat was cup noodles and snacks from the vending machine unless you bring your own food. - The work hours are mostly more than 8hrs due to the lack of staff everyday and many samples not cleared but the break time is only given 30mins. I would add in more cons here if I could but I am too lazy type it out anymore.

    there are some people who are nice, treats u nicely and guide u well. flexibility of when u want to work

    Cons

    - toxic environment (alot of favoritism in the company, ie even if you give feedback to hr also no use because they side with full timers) -pretend to be nice to u but behind ur back they talk bad about u damn two faced LOL, one moment don't like u, talk bad about u then next moment help u and eat lunch with u. TOXIC!!! - rude people lol. will give u attitude for no reason and shout at u - pay wise ok only, can find better jobs paying $8/hr with better working environment - only 30 min break might as well don give LOL - if you make any mistakes, they will scold u in the group chat. no mercy at all LOL - overall, really bad environment, regretted working there, pay was low, attitude of the people there are generally damn BAD !! other than some caring seniors. Management don't really care about ur wellbeing, only side their full timers so complain also no use!!!

    Pros

    Gained a myriad of laboratory knowledge and healthcare experience. Together with the branding of the company contribute to build a good resume of yours.

    Cons

    Management were double standards and did not follow Work Instructions for workflow. Management often announce last minute and deploy staffs to commit 12 hours shifts and long OT hours without informing beforehand. Not only that, they did not respect if staffs unable to commit it. Unappreciative management made clear - Either we stay put this job or we can leave anytime. Annual Leaves were allowed based on only 1 staff per day and to draw lots. Little to no progression for salary increment and career promotion. The company credit last salary (notice period pay) 1 month later after you left the company.
