cytology specimen accessioner (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – September 17, 2017
Overall can be a great place to work. However, in my current position it is a very labor intensive, all out race to get specimens out to shipment. Lunch is not until close to end of shift, right before you do data entry and management keeps close track of bathroom breaks. Most employees are required to stay seated during their entire shift. Typing speed usually will overrule a person's general "fit" for the job, ending up having our site with a higher turnover rate. Though from what I understand, this is not the norm across the board. Most of the problems seem to be more site specific to warrant being recorded on this review, so I would actually be inclined to tell people who are interested in applying to do so, but with open eyes.
vacation hours are plentyful, free testing for you and immediate family
long days with little or no breaks, management is untrained in healthcare or with medical terminology
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Boise, ID 83704 – November 10, 2017
Very diverse work, could be stressful at times. Good team and co-workers. Very poor management which lead me to leave. There were very few perks to working for the company, but the one I very much liked was free lab work. That can get expensive.
I used to love this company until we moved to the old Citi building. There was petty drama amongst very grown adults that took away from the work. The management and sups were terrible and showed favoritism which isn't professional at all.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Clanton, AL – November 10, 2017
I was contracted out at chilton medical and associates. I collected about 70 to 100 specimen per day. The work was steady and I kept busy. Lab corp lost the contract at chilton to america esoteric lab. That left me as a displaced worker.
Phlebotomist-Patient Service Technician Specialist (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 9, 2017

Phlebotomist/Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Catskill, NY – November 9, 2017
Working at LabCorp was ideal for me. It allowed me to work day hours, which promoted my ability to be with my children during the evenings. I learned a massive amount of information while employed at LabCorp, essentially how to run a laboratory successfully, from patient intake, data entry and insurances to a myriad of specimen handling and processing. I really enjoyed the often fast-paced environment in both the training and independent setting phases of my employment there. The boss was awesome, understanding and patient, as well as encouraging to staff; always providing compliments to staff for a job well done. The patients were amazing.
Management and the overall opportunity
Rate of pay could have been higher, but really was not an issue for me.
Phlebotomy Service Technical Specialist FT (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 9, 2017
I was able to adjust quickly to the job as I have had experience. The coworkers were tightly banded together. We would trade days off if somebody needed to go to a child's graduation or important stuff like that. Over time was always a must as often you were required to work the laboratory alone. Short staffing was always the main complaint it always felt like you were not able to get more help when you really needed it, during the very busy hours. Coworkers were always supportive to each other.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 9, 2017
A typical day at work would be very high volume and fast paced. Great coworkers and supervisors. You always had the supplies you needed which makes the day go better. Excellent department managers to call and quickly answer questions. Couriers that are truly hardworking and friendly, always on time.
excellent benefits and multiple locations to be placed.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Burlington, NC – November 8, 2017
Phone very busy and a lot to job due to the nature of job. Learned that I needed to be organized. Paperwork had to be completely filled out and data entry needed to be accurate. Also helped other areas such as warehouse if they needed help.
Low pay with high responsibility No room for advancement unless you want to move to a different department, put in another year as the lowest of the low, and then attempt to move up in that department. Communication in my department is lacking, as in if you don't make the effort to ask the questions, you will never be told a thing.
My fellow employees were great! It was just my boss she was hard to work for.
Phlebotomist/Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Terre Haute, IN – November 7, 2017
I loved my job as a phlebotomist and my co workers were so supportive. I just didn't like that overtime my boss would show up I was always asked do you like your job? Do you want to keep your job? I was always told that I was going to be fired the next time something happened. I am not the only one who has had problems with this particular boss. I just couldn't take it anymore so I had to quit.
Great fellow employees / loved my job
Not so good boss/always afraid of being fired when boss walked in
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – November 7, 2017
While I learned amazing skills, the culture is very difficult. I maintained a PSC independently, averaging 60-70 patients daily. There is very little room for advancement, and a lot of times, obtaining support from higher departments was a challenge. The most enjoyable part of my job was working closely with ordering physicians and the patients.
Specimen Processor (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 6, 2017
All decisions regarding your role will be made without the input of anyone who actually knows how to do any facet of your job.When hired they'll present the job like it's 8-10 hours a day with irregular overtime. Then they'll work you 10-12 hours a day with strict break times and a break room that's nowhere close to the work area. You'll only get your legally allowed 2nd 30 minute break if you start raising an issue with the managers.
You can make some good money, but say goodbye to your life as 90% of your time will be spent here or sleeping.
Specimen Accessioner (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 5, 2017
You are worked to the bone, many long hours, lots of non stop typing, barely any breaks, food was impossible to fine for overnight shift. You barely had any time to do anything when you get home, barely any sleep, and I am surprised I made it this long. It is a good job if you like overtime but honestly for the pay it was not worth it. The hardest part of the job is trying to keep up with their numbers, overall work quota. I enjoyed my co workers.
