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
Cons: production. making mistakes as counted as an occurrence.
At work on each day I start off sorting through faxes. Each new morning there is something different that I may do. For example, we have 5 fax machines we have to keep filled up with paper. If one of the machines break down there is a repair man that has to be called to fix it. They usually let us know what the problem is so we will know what to look – more... for. If there is too much work coming off of the fax machines especially on a Monday-which is an extremely busy day, my supervisor and/or teamlead will help me out. I enjoy working with the people in my department. We all pull together as a team in many ways. I enjoy my job most days because I am highly energetic and I like being able to do different various things through the day. in closing, there is another co worker that I work with that helps out with sorting the faxes. What makes it difficult is when there is more work than both of us can do in a day. – less
