Laboratory Assistant/Reference Clerk/Accesioner (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – January 2, 2017
Typically, we prepare all the things needed in the Accesioning department like specimen tubes,specimen container etc. I have to enter the specimen received and also all the information in the system and enter test codes if needed. I pouring Specimen in the container and entering collected data. I learned a lot of things in Labcorp becouse I experienced working in different departments at the Chemistry Department; Pouring, Aliquoting, and Centrifuging. In Reference Department; Packaging, Shipping of Specimen, and Collecting Specimen in Freezers and different departments. Labcorp is a friendly place from Distribution to different departments. Every so often, the hardest part of the job is being time pressured and receiving heavy specimen but I was wiling to handle it.
very stressful, cutthroat, difficult, place to work
Cytotechnologist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 23, 2017
Pay was great but LCA micromanages every employee. Must clock in and out on the minute. we were made to screen at least 14 slides/hour. were not allowed out of your seat. Firing occurred at random for no reason. Paperwork and documentation were absolutely ridiculous and extremely time consuming. Management looks at employees as a number only not a person. If you don't fit "the box" you are let go.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Issaquah, WA – April 23, 2017
The corporation is way too much of a corporation. The only people that really matter are the high ups. They don't care about their employees at the very bottom of the tank actually helping and taking care of people. Their labs are fill with overworked, underpaid and underappreciated employees making the minimum that they can for working in a hospital. Benefits were okay but not worth working with so many unhappy people and in a constantly negative environment.
Dispatcher (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 22, 2017
Satisfying to assist couriers and clients but I long for more teamwork and leadership in my department. I've improved my computer skills greatly and about half of my department is an absolute pleasure to work with. Unclear how to advance internally and the only opportunity to increase my wage comes annually and it isn't generous. In a sometimes frenetically busy call center, I've experienced professional growth by being stretched outside of my comfort zone.
When you start they make it seem like it is so easy to move to various jobs but it is not. They also make it seem easy to get a raise but it is not. You will be looking for another job after a couple of months
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – April 20, 2017
I absolute love working for Labcorp. So many opportunities to grow within this company and would recommend this company to anyone. I worked in a fast paced hospital environment and loved every second of it.
Medical Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – April 19, 2017
Good place to work. Collecting the samples for the various analyses that I ran. I liked the technical Laboratory work, QC and calibrating the equipment. Busiest time in the morning, getting out results and re-analysing positive samples.
Specimen Processor (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ 85040 – April 18, 2017
When I first started here I loved it. I was working and making good money. I didn't mind the long hours so much until it finally took it's toll on me. I was missing out on special occasions. When I did make it to a birthday party or whatever celebration I fell asleep there. I was working 60 hour weeks. I was not exercising anymore. I was not happy anymore. I was grateful for having a job though. I always try to humble myself.
Company bought us pizza when we hit production rate
Specimen Accessioner (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – April 17, 2017
LabCorp is a great company to work for if work is distributed evenly throughout the lab! The pay is just okay not the best! The good thing is you can advance within the company and earn a little more money but not much.. This is a multi billion dollar company, its employees work hard and deserve so much more compensation than what they receive!
would be a great place to work if notnfor terrible management
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Okatie, SC – April 13, 2017
jennifer fitsemons phlebotomy supervisor from savannah is a terrible manager and leader. she intentionally stabs her workers in the back and fires amazing employees seemingly for the fun of it. this job was fun and has great employees but poor management.
This company does not priortize employee satisfaction
In Office Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 11, 2017
It is very difficult to have your concerns taken seriously with regards to ensuring the employee has sufficient tools and supplies to perform the job adequately. If a problem or situation arises, management is slow to respond and never assumes responsibility. Not a good choice if you are interested in upward mobility.
Often too busy to take a proper lunch break. Low starting pay, even with years of experience.
Many of the employees form cliques and politics reign supreme. If you can get under the right manager/supervisor you can flourish and increase your knowledge greatly. With the wrong ones you are stuck in a boring 8-5.
work life balance, overtime often available
politics reign, difficult to advance, even with opportunities available
