Two of our roommates work in a testing laboratory that’s rapidly becoming a booming industry, and this contractor has managed to buy out entire hospitals as well as districts all for the sake of expansion. It’s also a great site to work, their starting salaries are good, and they offer many pathways to go up the advancement ladder for anyone who wants to learn. All you have to do is attend extra meetings as well as pass the newest certification tests to be cleared to work in other departments of the lab. Their dress code is even pretty relaxed; you don’t need to wear a suit to work there at all. The only rule is that you can’t show any skin, so if you wear a dress, then you have to have on tights or leggings underneath. Some employees don’t bother with a cardigan or a blazer because they have to wear their colorless lab coats anyway. However, depending on what area you work in, you may want to bundle up. The more sensitive the tests are, the colder the temperature usually must be. The drug testing wing is usually pretty comfortable, however one of our roommates complains that going into the virus testing area is always terrible because it’s brutally cold. The building A/C unit must be really specialized to handle all of the variables. He swears that wing is below 60 degrees, which is awful for him because he delivers all of the samples for testing. So unlike the lab workers who can bundle up and adapt to the cold, he’s constantly moving from one type of A/C zone to the next.
