LabCorp periodically advertises for courier positions, yet they do not hire. Why do they keep advertising and why does indeed continue to run their ads?? After a recent ad, I was told by a courier with Labcorp that they were not hiring because there was a "freeze" on hiring. What kind of game are they playing?

lab corp in pittsburg pa is a bad place to work for. thats why the are going under and are out beat by quest diagnostic thats why they are not calling people back here. do some research before you speak. know whats going on with company before you run your mouth. face that.

When you apply for a job you do not always get it. LOL May people including myself have applied for this position. Why are you so negative? Many companies have to leave the job posting up until they fill the position. And that person starts to actually in that position working. So many things can happen. And do you think the poeple who interviewed you run the whole company and can just take the ad on and off. Come on now! Maybe you were the first one to get interviewed and he had many to follow! Do you think that a hugh company has time to call or hold you hand while they tell you that you do not have the job? Life does not work that way. Nor does any other company. Have you ever been on another job interview before? LOL
What is wrong with your job now since you are such a great phlebotomist? A positive attidude would get you a lot further in life then always crying!
PS I hope you did not use you real name, Debbie from Pittsburgh writing this! LOL What happens if they see this and the site that you want Penn hills comes open? Well, all I got to say is that I hope they hire me!! Callie from Plum!!

Debbie,
If your command of the written language is anything like your venipuncture skills, I think I know why you were not hired. Perhaps some remedial English study would behoove you?
It seems as if you may lack personal skills as well.
Lab Corp is professional, competentant and growing. They are a wonderful company to work for and, as well meaning as you may be, it is coming off as sniveling and immature.
If you don't work for them, how can you accuse them of being "crap"?
Some professionalism on your part may aid in your search for employment, Dear.

I'm hearing a lot of bad things regarding LabCorp and Quest in NC, but does anyone know anything about Spectrum Lab? I've applied there, too, and haven't heard anything from either one of these companies. I'm 27, and I don't have lab experience, but I am in school for Biology. From what I've seen on their hiring ads, the experience is just preferred, not required. It sounded to me like they would hire someone right out of high school and train them, but I'm obviously wrong about that! LOL So, having said all that, I really just want to know if anyone knows anything about Spectrum. Thanks to everyone!

THEY ARE HAVING "THE SOURCE AGENCY" WHICH IS AN EMPLOYMENT AGENCY IN EDISON, NEW JERSEY TAKING OVER THE HIRING FOR THEM. THEY LIKE TO BE PICKY ON APPEARANCE AND LIFESTYLE, IF YOU ARE A MOTHER WITH KIDS OR A CHILD OR IF YOU ARE LESBIAN YOU MAY GET A TRY AS A TEMP AND EVEN GET HIRED PERMANENT AND STAY WORKING FOR 2O YEARS.
I WOULDNT BE DESPERATE TO WORK FOR LAB CORP, THEY HAVE "COMMUNIST" RUSSIANS RUNNING THIS PLACE AND THE HUMAN RESOURCES IN RARITAN DO NOT DEAL WITH YOUR COMPLAINTS BUT DIRECT TO A LADY FROM PAYROLL TO HANDLE YOUR PROBLEMS. THEY LET SITE COORDINATORS AND TEAM LEADERS MAKE DECISIONS AND SAY LIES ABOUT AN EMPLOYEE TO GET YOU FIRED. THEY HAVE IMMATURE EMPLOYEES AND ARE BEING THREATENED BY A SITE COORDINATOR IN THE CENTRAL/NJ AREA . THEY HIRE A SUPERVISOR AND SHE IS ALSO BEING THREATENED MY THE WOMEN OF HUMAN RESOURCES WHO ARE SO UNPROFESSIONAL AND WHO SHOULD NOT BE WORKING THERE, THEY ARE RUSSIANS AND ONLY WOMEN AND LESBIANS.(NO OFFENSE TO THE GOOD LESBIANS OUT THERE).

TAKE MY ADVICE HONEY! YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN LABCORP!

Yeah, I applied for the courier position in Huntsville,AL via the internet and the only response I got was that they received my application. I have over 10 years exp. in courier/ route delivery. They say they want an "experienced" courier, but the qualifications only list high school diploma, valid driver's license, and clean driving record. They also list the salary at $12.59/hr. Do they pay that much?
My wife's uncle has worked for Quest for 16 yrs. as a courier and he loves it! Are they any better? He didn't say anything negative about LabCorp, and of course Quest wasn't hiring.

Maxgusdog said: Ok, if one isn't what they want, isn't there a question of professional courtesy to TELL that person so he/she won't have to wait around, wasting time?

I completely agree with Maxgusdog. Job sites should have a rejection button for employers, that will notify the applicant that he/she was rejected. The technology is there, they just gotta use it.

I just got a job at lab corp and its funny you talk about lesbians because thats how I got my job. Im not a lesbian but my neighbors are and they both work their. I think they are very nice and friendly people with nothing negative to say about their job. I think every corporation has some bad apples and it just depends who you have to deal with.

Lab corp is on a hiring freeze. They always advertise positions and do not hire. I'm in the Northeast and have seen it many times.

There are a lot of instances where LabCorp will have a prospective client and that clietn wants a phlebotomist in their office. LabCorp will go ahead and start recruiting for a phlebotomist for that office but if the client decides not to come to LabCorp after all, then we can't hire that phlebotomist. You shoul be mad at the client for wasting everyone's time, not LabCorp.

LabCorp does hire couriers, just try not to scratch the company car. My friend typically drove about 300 miles a day. His mom was a phlebotomist there and I think that helped. As far as getting enough experience to work there, you could try starting at a blood bank or plasma center. They have many openings and are willing to train people.

I just found a "New Listing" for a customer Service position and found that it was already showing that it had expired! What do they do....post positions to keep people aware that they are still in business? This is a crock.
