Nice and overall pleasant place
Switchboard Operator (Current Employee), burlington, ncApril 16, 2015
A typical day for me starts at 8:30 am and ends at 5:30pm. I spend the day answering phone calls and transferring those calls to wherever they need to go. On occasion and around the holidays we do odds and ends for other departments or our management.The hardest part of the job right now is that its not busy and we have to find things to do. my co workers are very pleasant and easy to get along with.

Employees i worked with made working there pleasant
Histology clerk, then promoted to lab assistant (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INApril 15, 2015
My workday was very busy everyday, I had numerous duties and responsibilities, I learned a lot about medical terminology. My coworkers were easy to be around as they had the same qualities that I pride myself in having regarding the patient and the importance of making sure that patient quality was important. The hardest part of the job was that the company did not hire enough workers for our department and there was constant overtime. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the people I worked with.

Long hours with little benefits
Specimen Accessioner (Former Employee), Cranford, NJApril 13, 2015
Pros: Overtime Pay
Cons: Short breaks, working LOOOONG hours, employee gossip, favoritism, hard to take time off
I was hired to work 10pm-6am. A few weeks later the schedule was changed so that everyone has to come in at 7pm. You would think with an earlier start time you would finish earlier. NO some days we didn't get out until 9am or later for the unlucky ones. Expect to come to work with the sun setting and getting off with the sun already risen. The pay isn't worth all the work they have you doing. Hours change with little to no notice, expect to work 4-5 hours past your scheduled time off, if the mangers don't like you, which they probably wont, don't expect to work here for very long. Working around bio-hazardous materials with bare minimum safety precautions. The hardest part of the job was having the managers standing over you breathing down your neck while trying to get work done. The most enjoyable part of this job was getting off work for the day.

Student (Former Employee), Mesa, AZApril 9, 2015
Pros: Very well organized
Cons: Low staff
A typical work day at LabCorp is getting to work on time ready to work with a smile and a positive attitude, Morinings are usually a rush which I consider a good thing which makes time goes by fast. During my short time spent there I was able to learn great techniques which helped me improve my skills.

Management works in "cliques"
PST Team Leader (Current Employee), Florence, SCApril 8, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Gossip, Lack of communication, immature, under qualified supervisors.
Overall great company with wonderful benefits. Management base a lot of the assessments on gossip and "hear say". High employee turnover within the past 6 months due to poor supervision and lack of communication. Promotions are based on who you know. Employee morale has plummeted.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the patients.

Data Entry Operator (Former Employee), San Diego, CAApril 8, 2015
Nice and descent place to work in, I had learned so much from this company, gained a lot of good friends. the hardest part of the job was overtimes. The most enjoyable part though was you know you're working for patients or people in general. They don't know you and you don't know them but you have the connections and able to help them. Too bad they had to let me go.. RP

Perpetually Understaffed, No Supervisor
Specimen Accessioner (Former Employee), Englewood, COApril 5, 2015
Pros: Shift Differential
Cons: Everything
I would have really enjoyed working for this company, but the production standards were unrealistic. I did not mind the 3rd shift, however, there was manditory overtime since the company was perpetually understaffed. Possibly due to a mass exodus of employees, and a corporate hiring freeze. I also watched two supervisors come and go in the short three months that I worked for the company. There was little to no training, and most of the staff was so overworked that the atmosphere was thick with resentment for upper management. One employee did not recieve pay for almost over a month because the H.R. person quit, and the corporate staff just could not get it to together to pay her for her hard work. I was initially glad to be involved in the reconstruction of the department, but the leads were pressured to micromanage so heavily, that even bathroom access became resitricted. I still see requisitions for this position open on indeed so I do not believe these issues have been resolved. I fear this is a permanent situation for this employer.

Production
Healthcare Billing Specialist (Former Employee), Montgomery, ALApril 3, 2015
Pros: handling different types of insurances

be prepared to work your butt off
Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Downey, CAMarch 30, 2015
Pros: weekends mostly off
Cons: short staffed and long lines
not too bad a company to work for, but it is a corporation. It's all about numbers to upper management. At times it's a fun place to work at but other times be prepared to work alone with large amounts of angry patients. Biggest down side is that they are always short staffed and management does nothing to fix the problem.
