Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Herndon, VA – October 28, 2014
Pros: no woking on weekends
Cons: management, losing labcorp accounts with clients
A typical day working in my labcorp IOP is up and down. Some days I may see a total of almost 15-20 patients in a day and sometimes 6-9 patients in a day. Working at labcorp's PSC and IOP's has amplified my multitasking and customer service skills. Labcorp is a okay company to work for, but the hardest part about working here is that there so much inconsistency – more... with where you consistently work, IOP's losing there account with labcorp which displaces you and the constant changing of management. I do not like the benefit options and I would love a raise in pay. The most enjoyable part about working at Labcorp is mighting different people everyday and building relationships with your patients and co workers. – less

Patient Service Technician (Former Employee), Grand Blanc, MI – September 18, 2014
Pros: good benefits, experience
Cons: the pay, the management, the drug testing, the complete non appreciation of their employees
Labcorp offered pretty solid benefits (although the insurance was pricey). I was with the company for 6 years and saw as employees were hired with less experience and far less seniority being paid way more money than me. They based pay upon experience when hired and could care less about retaining their employees. Management consistently passes the – more... blame along to their subordinates. – less

Cons: short staff
Lacorp was a good place to work, and I was employed there for eight years. Insurance and stabilty was good, I worked at a very busy location, often with only two or one employees at the site. While some coworkers were better than others, the workload was still completed. The hardest times were when I had to work alone for extended periods of time while – more... being at one of the busiest locations. I enjoyed the other people outside of my site that I had the oppurtunity to work with, and value the relatinonships that became of it. – less
A work day consist of making unbillable specimens billable by research or phone calls. Maintaining production and quality was a must daily. Co workers were nice for the most part and helpful when needed. Management was slack and could have been a lot better.

Specimen Accessioner (Current Employee), San Diego, CA – September 10, 2014
I've never worked for such a horrible place. It's a germ infested sweatshop. You want time off? Forget about it. You want gloves that work? Nope. If you don't want a personal life, like I mean even an hour to yourself a day, then this is the place for you.
