They hired me to run their lab, but the only thing I was running was the studies. I feel like they lied to me and told me what I wanted to hear to get me to work there.
If you are moving into management then you need to protect both yourself and future employers by insisting on a complete job description and contract.
I have been in the sleep business for over 12 years. I have worked nights/days. I have scored/managed.
I think the most difficult part of the business is finding good technologist.
I have 17 years and you are so right. Stopped hiring trained techs – we have much better luck training them our own way from the ground up, insures much higher quality, pay them big bucks to start- 17hr as trainees, then $20 after training, pay for their registry and then pay bigger bucks – $25 – $27. Costs alot – but it works. 😉
