Career oriented company with room for growth
Dispatcher/Lead Stat Dispatcher (Former Employee), Teterboro, NJJuly 12, 2014
Pros: job stability, good benefits
Cons: drama and politics
My first 10 years with this company were great. Management and co workers were professional, friendly and well organized in New Jersey & Texas main labs. Excellent benefits with opportunity for growth. Fast paced work environment which is a good challenge for those who like stay busy. The only hard part on a daily basis was if we were short staffed. – more... It made an already busy day overwhelming at times.
My last 1 1/2 yrs with the company in the Regional Lab in Irving Tx. was dreadful at best. 2 medical labs merged & there was a lot of disagreements on procedures between management & supervisors which us Dispatchers took the punishment for unjustly. Scandalous situations were happening, moral became low. I personally felt the need to resign with 2 weeks notice. Left the company on very good terms and sadly so. I believe had I worked in another department I would probably still be working there today. Truly disliked leaving but was played and made a fool of by some staff unjustly.
This company was great for job stability & potential growth. Sadly, politics plays too much of a huge hand in how they work with and treat employees. – less

Challenging job
Route Service Representitive (Courier) (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDJuly 11, 2014
Pros: challenging job
Cons: no job security
This job was fun, physically demanding, and challenging. You receive a route to run daily to pick up medical specimens, then have a a nextel phone to receive additional call-ins from doctors. You have to keep your specimens at the correct temperatures and well as keeping count of them. The work environment was good, most people were nice, though ultimately – more... I had conflicts with other employees and had to leave. A lot of boomers on my shift fighting for their job and being jerks. Overall the the job was great, the company not very loyal to employees. – less

Pros: on-line learning, continuing education opportunities, blueprint for wellness program
The company has a clear vision of where it wants to be in the healthcare system. It is an encouraging and caring environment that does all it can to equip its people, at every level, with the knowledge needed to be their best both professionally and personally.

Quest has no room for advancement, and sketchy management.
Patient Service Representative/Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Springfield, ILJuly 10, 2014
Pros: getting to work with people
Cons: everything else.
Typically, employees are underpaid for the work and conditions required of them, management only comes around every couple weeks, are slow to respond to issues, if they respond at all. The only good point is the patient interaction, and helping people. I love working with people and this definitely provided that for me. However, the conditions and supervisor – more... were not worth staying for. – less

Accessioner (Former Employee), Irving, TXJuly 9, 2014
Pros: healthcare benefits
Cons: short breaks
I enjoyed working in a clinical laboratory setting with many other lab assistants. We performed various tasks in a fast paced environment as a team. Thousands upon thousands of patient specimens poured into the laboratory to enter data into computer system and process by preparing slides for Cytotechs to read.

Rep, Cytology/Pathology Support II/Clerical (Former Employee), West Hills, NYJuly 7, 2014
Pros: independent assignment
Cons: short lunch breaks
Fast-paced office required answering phone calls from local hospitals requesting materials for cancer patient's appointments. I would also expedite request for biopsy slides via faxes from various medical centers. I would retrieved these slides from our medical files and then package them for shipping via Fed-Ex overnight mail. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job was knowing that I was making a difference in a cancer patient's life. I always made sure that the biopsy slides were correctly shipped to the patient's hospitals and on-time for their doctor's appointments. – less

Stressful production quotas, little benefit
Specimen Processor (Current Employee), West Hills, CAJuly 6, 2014
Days are extremely monotonous, there is hardly any variation in processing. There are also way too many things that processors are held responsible for, considering the pay rate. It's common to see people getting warnings or write-ups for errors. The "RecognitionQuest" program was an interesting way of rewarding those who actually work hard, but in – more... practice ends up being a way for circles of friends to reward each other. It's hard to really find anything enjoyable about this position, especially since it's during the night shift. Only recommended as a filler for the gaps in between careers. – less

Service Route Rep II (Current Employee), Austin, TXJuly 6, 2014
Working for Quest diagnostics has its challenges on the up side you meet many different people and your are providing a service for those clients that need there samples picked up and send to the Quest Lab for testing. The opposite of this is that you deal with a lot of repeated duties day after to day things don't change very often and if u are a person – more... who likes to have some change this well be hard job to do. – less

Specimen Processor (Current Employee), Valencia, CAJuly 5, 2014
Pros: company sponsored events
It's a great place to work if you keep to yourself. The people are great but tend to fall victim to or promote gossip, but I'm sure it's not unlike any other work environment. Productivity and quality work are very important in my department and errors are taken seriously. There is a quota that has to be met and its been increased at least 4 times since – more... I started working there. I don't want to say the management has an unrealistic expectation of the employees they oversee but there is always room for improvement on both ends without burning the candle on both ends per say. I can only hope that the do keep that in mind when they choose to implement new ways of dong things. We all work really hard or at least try. – less

Highly productive
HISTOLOGY TECHNICIAN (Former Employee), Horsham, PAJuly 2, 2014
Pros: yearly bonus +vacation time
In working on third shift it was all about production.
what I learned in effect was how much work you could produce
when you had no distractions. We barely saw management except for staff sessions as needed. Co-workers were fun loving and hard working. To me the hardest part of this job was when certain co-workers left whom I had enjoyed working with – more... because of the shift hours or other reasons. the most enjoyable part was finding out as I wrote earlier just how much you could accomplish in an Industrial
setting. – less
