    Pros

    The company provides benefits even though they are currently switching to a new insurance provider because Manulife is too expensive for them. Some of your coworkers are extremely nice people and hard working.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't care about loyalty or talent or it's own customers the patients. They will cut cost in areas that can put the patient at risk to save a dime. Records are modified to get past government audits and when they get caught they fight the strike instead of fixing the issue. Good talented people at Dynacare are being fired on a weekly/monthly basis for the past 2 years showing signs of this company... dying. Labs are being closed throughout Canada and employees are even starting to Unionize to protect themselves. As more people are fired more work is put on the loyal good workers and then they eventually snap and quit themselves. Vito Ciciretto is the current CEO and should be named that on this profile because this is his doing and his responsibility. He will act like he never knew an issue occurred and put the blame on others to protect himself. Save yourself the drama and future firing by avoiding this company as a patient or an employee. They have been firing people that are only a few years away from retirement and then hiring people fresh out of school to save on cost.

    Advice to Management

    Admit your mistakes and speak to LabCorp to get financial help. You are losing talent all over the organization because you are unfair and lie to them. Stop treating patients as a number and as a human being and pay that extra money and add it to the cost of the test to protect them from harm.

    I worked at Dynacare full-time

    Pros

    Great vacation and benefits, the hours are also good. The office is in a nice location close to sky train, with lots of food around. The building complex is lovely and the office provides filtered water. The office team is always very helpful and mostly very hardworking.

    Cons

    Low pay and a very heavy workload. Seems like there is always a need for overtime (if it's approved) otherwise, there are still people coming in early and/or leaving late just to keep up. The management also has a heavy workload. This can deter focus from some of the duties that are necessary for a healthy office environment. The manager is also responsible for some of the typical HR duties which can put further... stress on an already heavy workload. Not really defined jobs so there does not appear to be an opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    It's hard right now because the company has been going through a transitional period, and I know that they have been working hard to get things on a functional level. I do feel like having a dedicated HR or someone who can help come up with solutions to destress (that is not already overburdened with a heavy workload) would be very beneficial as employee happiness has gone to the wayside since the transition.

    Pros

    Good Monday to Friday hours, vacation, benefits for FT employees.

    Cons

    They will hire anyone. Your coworkers can be slow, lazy, may not understand the job, or call in sick every other day with no penalty. A lot of stress on the workers who are driven and well educated.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire workers who show up, put effort into the shift, and know the job.
