The laboratory in Addison should consider another candidate who can understand her job and lead with clarity. The department has serious issues not meeting their deadlines due to lack of management and a organized work flow. Best of luck if you try this one.
As a graduate student on a preceptorship, I gained hands-on experience on a variety of molecular assays. A typical day starts from 6 A.M to 8 A.M and shifts are generally only 8 hours but depends on the assay being run and if any problems are encountered through the day. Co-workers were friendly and willing to help me learn.
Client Service Representative (Current Employee) – Addison, TX – December 14, 2015
CPL is an extremely professional workplace environment, full of employees who are energetic and willing to lend a hand. A typical workday involves trouble shooting client issues and delivering lab results to nursing staffs. Client demands can be overwhelming at times, but we do it with a smile on our face and kindness in our voice. Helping clients make a difference in a patients daily life is very rewarding.
Phleb (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 4, 2016
I been worked in this industry since around 2000 and have worked a few others medical jobs, but this job cuts the cake. This is THE WORST job that I have ever worked in my whole career! Employees (who I worked with) bicker with each other too much, are nosy, and are forever lazy. People who have just graduated, in my opinion, need more training and stuff that I have seen they doing with people's specimen...(shaking my head), lastly, but not least, MANAGEMENT! Oh no, baby! Management makes the whole entire company look bad. This company possess too many cliques, people get fired for too many stupid reasons (the good and hard-working employees).... BUT these are all just my opinions..... Never know where you are going to end up, they move you around mid-day. Sometimes you get a lunch and sometimes you don't, hard to utilize your PTO that you have accumulated....must I continue?
Company has clearly outlined expectations for conduct and work quotas. There is a very good insurance contract with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas. Management is structured and the rules are strictly enforced. If you are looking for a place with structure then this is the place for you.

The phleb's need to get a grip on reality. Just because you attend a business college short course on " working in medicine " does not qualify you for massive compensation packages. People with college or university degrees make very decent money and have fairly standard benefits packages. They also have vastly more intricate knowledge about the blood you drew and the pathologic states they are working to aid in diagnosing. Often times their work leads to the actual diagnosis, this is the same for Cytotechnologist 's and Pathologist's.
Clinical pathology is all about what a lab do we draw blood we process the blood ,I learn alot been here there is never doll moment ,the management is real professional they are real cool people very patient they have a lot of knowledge the hardest part of the job is not enough time ,the most enjoyable part of this job is learn and enjoy what I do helping and meeting new people ,,
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 19, 2015
It was a fast pace environment. I learned more techniques with lab work. Management was poor. no respect for their employees. hardest part of the job was dealing with management. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the patients and other employees.
Good Laboratory and Equipment, Productive and Busy, and Location.

They will let you work like a dog, if ever you will have an overtime within a day or a week they will let you cut that overtime like they will let you get 2 to 3 hours of break time then come back to work and finish your day. I don't mind working overtime as long as they will pay.
Daily routine, walk-workers, turn on lights, log into systems, turn on lights, greet co-workers, wash hands check schedule, bring pts to lab, draw, and check pt out, place blood samples in the back and continue to bring pt to lab, before during down time I would sanitize areas, stock stations, draw more pts, take lunch, come and continue to draw pts blood samples. end of day we sanitize and restock for the following day.
