Hi Teresa;

Now are you saying that you worked for them and all of a sudden they let you go because they!!! Said that it was your fault of some trumped up charge of negligance on their part of course? And hey I'm new to this but I can say that I'm on your side. I mean who else are they gonna blame? It always comes down to one of the so called people that they say; Oh! We've offered such good training when you didn't get crap even though you whet to school and were probably great!!! Go FIGURE!!! You know something like that also happened to me.

Your story leaves alot to be desired and/or discused about. I'm certainly on your side, no doubt. It amazes me as to how so many companies and or hospitals need phlebotomists and yet I never realized how vital we really are!! Wish you would explain more...

Hi Again Teresa;

One more thing, you are obviously pretty good to be working for LAB CORP,
if that is who you are working for. Who can get a job with them with all their stringent requirements, WHOOO, WHOOO!! I've often wondered what it is like to work for them.

I'm sure you can recoup from this and move on in a positive way!! Just stay positive it will all work out. There are other great places to work and they'll fall in your lap, just WATCH!!!

GOOD LUCK!

Sharon

I am a phlebotomist of 10 years I was working for LabCorp and was fired unfairly, the weak reason was that they had the right because of the right to fire in Atlanta Ga for no reason I took this chance and was fired because the account did not like me, labcorp said well you are on probation and you missed two test by the way is suspect I can not prove this and that I was late with the reports one time. Fired right before christmas cold.

Rose in Joliet, Illinois

I recently was a pt at a labcorb here in Illinois. I went into the lab with an order for three tests; TSH, Thyroxin and AFP. Someone within the organization took it upon themselves to alter my order and also perform and BILL ME for; Gonadotropin, Esterol, hCG,uE3, Inhibrin A, Immunoassay, and a Glucose. My doctor was assured that it was an "error" and I would not be billed. Well now Labcorp has billed my insurance and been paid for these tests that my doctor DID NOT ORDER. I have called the 800 number only to be told they will look into it and call me, no one has. What organization approves the licensing of laboratories? I was going to labcorp because there is one in the building I work in, I will never go back.

Greg Riddle,Florida said: I had been with Roche, Lab Corp for nearly 15 years, I was fired 6 weeks ago for not clocking out. Of course you get a retirement at
55 with 15 years, which I will not be able to get. Fl. is one of these great right to work states,that require no reason to fire you,therefore no lawyers will talk to you cause they cannot win an employment dispute with these states.

lab corp.is all over this page!Is a class action suit an option?Also if you are fired for a reason other than "misconduct"you are entitled to unemployment.That was the case with me after 23 yrs. of employment.

LabCorp is not a good place to work. They have a high turnover rate, and they will use any excuse to fire people, even saying you were'nt helpful enough as an excuse to fire people. I don't regret working for them, I only regret I didn't leave when my boss did.

i was working for lab corp in the northwest new jersey area
as a temp. My contract ran out at the end of july but was immediately reinstated and extended to the end of sept.
However, less than a week later, my contract and 25 other contracts in the area of other "temp" employee's suddenly and mysteriously disappeared. A week later i was offered a job with lab corp... full time full pay ... yahoooo. Only problem was that i had to wait for Human resources to contact me to set up a
orientation date.....and guess what ... no orientation date no nothing and when i contacted the regional supvr. was told ... nope no job no. no no ...wtf....is this a typical example of lab corp "hospitality"? I am moving on and have found another phlebotomy job but this sticks in my craw because offers were made and accepted only to be told sorry charlie big WTF

sm in Lyons, Illinois

85 months ago

i worked for labcorp in the chicago area from 1999-2001. it was fine for the first 3 months, then nothing but trouble. the first i called in sick, in which case i had a really bad tonsil infection, i left a voicemail because no one was availale that early in the morning. around 10:30 i received a call telling me that i have to come to work. i told my supervisor i was ill, and she said that her manager said it didn't matter. then after a year of working there, i had hard time getting my vacation. i had a wedding to go to in new orleans. they kept telling me, even though i gave them plenty of notice (3 months), that there was no coverage available. i flat out said that i was going to go on my vacation no matter what, and if they wanted to fire me, they could. they didn't, but my supervisor was such a terrible person. i called i sick only once and got so much grief for it. then only one other time, i had car trouble, and they insisted i get a rental car. i got to work at 2 pm, only to work for 2 1/2 hours. terribly run company. i then started at quest, which was much better at first, but my supervisor turned out to be a racist witch. i was one of only 5 white techs. we were all treated like dirt. if we were black or mexican, no problem. so i left there too. i am now working at a doctor's office for the last 3 years which was great, but they cut my hours and they keep raising the cost of their already costly insurance. i am looking to skip out of there too.

Labcorp is a damm joke. 1st off they hired too many people, spend gross amounts of money - not needed of course to impress UHC (United Healthcare), undertrain the staff and then after 10 months of employment - lay people off cause the business isnt thrivin. The supervisors there are ridiculous. They bad mouth their staff to other staff members, keep them underinformed, ridiculed and then when all else fails, redo the employment policies to punish those who are not falling in line with their ideas. The worse professional enviorment I have had to work for ever. Had I known then what I known now, I would not have accepted their offer of employment.

YOUR RIGHT. LAB CORP DOES DO SHADDY THINGS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. SAD THING IS SEVERAL UPPER MANAGEMENT PEOPLE KNOW WHAT GOES ON AND KNOW IT'S WRONG BUT NOTHING IS DONE. I'VE SEEN THEM LAY OFF AND DEPT. HEADS USE THEIR SO CALLED FACT FILES TO DECIDE HOW STAYS AND GOES. THERE ARE EVEN DEPT. HEADS WHO ARE PROBLEMS AND UPPER MANAGMENT TURNS THEIR HEADS. ONE IS CUSTOMER SERVICE IN HOUSTON. I WONT NAME NAMES BUT HOUSTON LAB CORP KNOWS WHO THIS PERSON IS. BIG TURN OVER IN HOUSTON CUSTOMER SERVICE...CAN'T FIGURE OUT SOME OF THIS BIG COMPANY THINKING. BUT DO KNOW THIS...WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. IT'S VERY HARD TO RESEPCT WORKING FOR THESE FOLKS WHEN THOSE OF US WHO HAVE BEEN WITH THEM SEE THIS.

I was sent to Labcorp to have the RAST done on an 8 year old with no insurance. My doctor knew she had no insurance and so did the lab tech. I had no idea the bill would come to 1048 dollars. Now there is no choice but to pay it, but I will definitely try to find another lab to give my money to next time.

Oh yes, these people cover for each other all the time, If your not Ray's
pet then your out of luck. Unless you party with them and later with him.
I know one girl who is a pst and can get away with anything cause she is his # 1 I'll let you guess why???? Letty is a back stabbing snake she will lie to cover her a#$, and will not even bat an eye lash if you get a write up or fired as long as she has a job and income it's all good.
She will make things up and go running to Ray, Well Ray is so beliving in Letty's lies that he won't even look in to the matter, and about Luis
poor Luis he's Ray and Letty's door mat, that dude has no brain he just
got the manager's job because no one else applied.

LABCORP Su***!!!!! I was employed at LabCorp and they did me dirty. I worked my behind off, inc. overtime clocked out, trained new phlebs, basically really dedicated myself, MY LIFE. One Sat. at the Van Nuys PSC there was a patient that had no orders and said that it was a standing order, which would usually be in the PC. Well, it wasn't my station, so I couldn't find the fax, and nothing was in the computer. It was a FULL house and I only had 1 partner (who was training, right out of school). I couldn't do it, and I tried to accomadate by any means. This lady asked my partner, "What is that BI***S' name"? Thats when my voice was raised (no cursing). Her mom walked in after 15 minutes and gave me the order. GET THIS PEOPLE......the mom is the Administrating Manager for HEALTHCARE PARTNERS!!!!! What luck.... The following week, nothing was said. They had me train a new hire. The following Monday I was terminated. How do you like that? Talk about dirty. Labcorp can ......

whom ever you might be.... what you are stating is NOT a fact! And have no idea what you're talking about. I'm extremely passionate about my position and my career. You don't know about the long hours I would stay, clocked out, to make sure all my tasks and responsibilities were completed! Or how many patients I drew a day, by myself. And if you were a "patient", or related to a "patient", you wouldn't know about my personal records at LabCorp and display it on the internet, including my real name. Which I must say is ILLEGAL and I can take legal actions due to "defamation of character" because what you are stating is not true and can be harmful to my career! Besides that, if I decide to be known under an alias "kuki1121", how dare you display my real name? So either way...whether you are a patient, or pretending to be, this is called "slander" and I will be taking further action either against you or LabCorp! If it means paying top dollar to trace where this reply came from, it will be done. Believe that! Thanks for giving me the opportunity.....

LabCorp is a very political place to work. If you are in the "in" crowd you are fine, if you are not, watch out. Also, they will hire lots of persons and then in October lay them off. It used to be a great place to work with very good benefits, now both are horrible. I miss the old days. I could not refer this company to anyone to work there.
