Patient Services Center Specialist/Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Leesburg – May 7, 2015
It was my worst work experience !!! During the my employment with LabCorp more and more demands were being made on me by the supervisor working alone serving 40-60 patients often without lunch break... Lack of attention to institutional procedures regarding safe medical practice .

Medical Assistant Externship (Former Employee), Stony Brook, NY – August 14, 2015
My experience at LabCorp in Stony Brook, NY was amazing. I have been trained in all aspects of the job; venipuncture, customer service, processing and shipping of specimens. I was placed in the second most busiest location in Suffolk County which made me successfully multi task and perform over five hundred venipunctures. I loved going to work every day and I enjoyed what I did.
Understanding about the needs of the employees outside the job, example family engagements ,etc
Microbiology technologist (Former Employee), Wichita, KS – August 14, 2015
Pros: good medical insurance, flexibility
Cons: working shifts
This was my dream job, since I am a Microbiologist, and this job gave me the opportunity to practice clinical microbiology which was one of my main interests in the field.
I learned a lot about the – more... "real world" in a microbiologist point of view since I had the chance to work with a variety of population and many different scenarios that at the University level you only learn about but never get to practice.
Management was great when this company was owned by Roche-Bio-medical Laboratories. In 1997 Roche decided to merge their clinical sector with another clinical laboratory from the USA. At this point Lab Corp was created, but this merge as expected, caused a lot of changes including ,re-locations to bigger cities. The microbiology department was moved to the Kansas City Lab., I was offered to moved, but due to family issues I had to refuse the offer , hence loosing but job.
My co-workers were great, as a matter of fact, I had to experience the sad reality of seen many of them let go one by one, until literally, I was the only person working in my department , since the job load had been reduced a lot. My supervisor, fought to keep the department opened , but her efforts were in vain and I was let go.
A typical day at work was to get on work bench and finish "reading" the cultures at 48 hours of incubation, then report these results in the computer that connected directly to our customers. The I will start reading the fresh cultures and report a preliminary results to the customers.
The hardest part of the job was the stress caused by difficult cases that were hard to identified and we had to to our best as fast as we could because we had the doctor or vet (since we worked for veterinarians also) on the phone calling for results. – less
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Livingston, NJ – August 13, 2015
Pros: job security
A typical day at Labcorp was constant work from the moment you walked in until you walked out. My co-workers were wonderful and cheerful and hardworking. The hardest part of the job was that the company never had the best interest of their employees and they showed it. The most enjoyable part of working for Labcorp was helping the patients. They were a joy to interact with.
Another supervisory role in a fast-paced environment with a great Team.
Supervisor (Former Employee), San Diego – August 13, 2015
This role I developed strong Management, People and Customer Service Skills, while supervising a Team of 20 Data Entry Clerks who required a high-level of accuracy and attention to detail. This environment was fast-paced and never a dull moment.
Specimen Accesioner (Former Employee), Smyrna, GA – August 11, 2015
Pros: Great atmosphere
Cons: Short breaks, bad management
Long hours, bad management, great coworkers. They do not let you advance and the management did not care about the workers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the extra rules after they hire you.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – August 10, 2015
productivity and atmosphere is friendly need more teamwork but overall it been a good experience. When working in a patient service center there need to be balance and everyone must be crossed trained,in order to keep the flow of a rapidly changing pace.

Customer Service Courier (Former Employee), Herndon, VA – August 7, 2015
I loved my job but the management there was confrontational. The work was great if the supervisor liked you. If not she shortened your hours and created an uncomfortable work environment. My father has been working there for 36 years and doesn't dislike anyone. This supervisor rubbed him the wrong way just like most of the employees.
Phlebotomist/Receptionist/Lab Technician (Former Employee), Ivyland, PA – July 31, 2015
Pros: you receive a raise every year.
Cons: Lunch should be longer.
I was with the company for 7yrs,a typical day for me was, I would get to work a half an hour early every day. Set up all stations turn on computer LCM.Then wait for our customers too arrive. Being with – more... Labcorp you Iearned a lot of needed material such as customer service/ registration/ venipuncture draw and also processing labs.Management on a scale 1 to 10,I'll rate them 7,that would be a good score. The hardest part of the day is not knowing who would be working in the site with me,It was a lot of float co-workers in that site which would mean more work for me. The enjoyable part was the customers and listing to the gratitude in their voice, and giving that helping hand. that is what made my job awesome. – less

Depending on the position this company can be ok. Just make sure document, document, and document. Follow chain of command and make sure you have a supervisor who knows their job. Be as professional as you can with every aspect.
