Great company but needs better management. Managers needs to have retraining and actually know what they are doing instead of relying on others!!!!!!!

Graveyard shift here sucks the soul out of you

I was hired from a temp agency to Labcorp. When first hired, they make you spend your entire 8-10 hour shift doing the jobs that none of the other people want to do. That job is taking a cart making laps collecting specimen all night long. The only nice thing about this job was the paid 15 min breaks. The jobs and tasks that you complete are so mundane and mindless that you end your shift feeling like a corporate robot. I would only recommend working here if you are someone who wishes to build a career in the lab setting. If not, don't work here you will feel like the living dead after every shift.

Gilead Core: Overly complicated programs (old and unreliable). Changing policys and procedures weekly so you never feel secure.

Lapcorp is a huge company. I worked for a call center helping people sign up to get HIV meds for free if their income was low enough. People were great, managment was great, but directives from up top were terrible, always changing and expanding the process. For example, they decided to switch to a new program to manage all the client IDs. They did it during the busiest time of the year, gave the workers minimal training and did not give it a trial run first so many people are still without medicine or have run out and and we have no answers for them. Three weeks in and the pharmacy help desk which was supposed to facilitate the transition is unreachable. I feel like I'm on a sinking ship but this is just how it's run. I've talked to people who have worked there for 5 years and it's always been this way. Also they keep you as a temp with no benefits for one year and then when they do finally hire you, there is only 75 cent raise in pay. $18.75 an hour. Out of 40 people who went through the 6 week training only me and one other stayed so they are always training new people.

Pros

Work from home, good coworkers and managers, stable job, you can stay on the phone as long as you need to with callers to help them.

Cons

20 plus emails a day for things you must fix or policy changes, phone ringing off the hook, constant onboarding, processes constantly changing

Exhausting with NO Work-Life Balance

This place will suck you dry and exhaust you to the point of tears. Stress is so high here - there is NO work-life balance. They do not care if there is staffing problems, they will throw more and more work onto you. You will work overtime almost every day depending what position you are in. The expectations are impossible to achieve. If you want to devote your life and soul to a job, this is the job for you. It pays well I guess, but not worth the pay.

Pros

The job you're doing in theory is nice, it pays well for the area

Cons

The workload, the stress, management, the lack of work-life balance, expectations are impossible

Physical work, minimum wage

I was a warehouse employee. Management was so busy reprimanding folks who weren’t working that the people who were doing well were often ignored.

Pros

Cafe onsite, 3 breaks through, cool coworkers

Cons

Physical labor, long hours, parking could be a chore sometimes, if there are shortages you will be sent home/lose pay

great supervisors

Often you will have to work Saturday and you will be the only one in the center. When the waiting room fills up it can get hectic. When there are a lot of people signed in and only one phlebotomist they will start complaining no matter what.

Pros

Good supervisors

Cons

low pay

Management is messy

Stay to yourself. Stand clear of snakes that includes the management. Do the best you can do. Get your money and leave, don’t make friends you will regret if.

Pros

None

Cons

Mess

Could be better.

Certain techs were unfriendly and not helpful to customer service reps. Work/home balance was terrible, got attitude for taking off for prenatal appointments.

If you have a great team that works together then you’ll be fine.

Management was terrible because they show favoritism. Manager was a joke and no opportunity to advance. Teammates were lazy so it was hard to keep up. The shift was awful and couldn’t adjust to it.

Good compensation, high stress

You get paid well but expect a very high workload. There is overtime pay and holiday pay and health insurance and paid holidays. Free lab tests since it's Labcorp.

If you’re just starting out they I would say you’ll get a lot of experience. But this is not a place to stay long term

Under paid and over worked. They want you to do way too much but don’t want to pay you well. If ur just starting get your experience in sticking but then look for another job. You are unappreciated there for all the work you have to do.

Pros

Incentive every qtr. but you have to do a lot to get that as well.

Cons

30 min lunch break, Other phlebotomist hide when a lot of people come in, Phlebotomist manually pour off and separate blood I seen a lot of mix up’s happen while I was there.

Lots of location availability, high turn over with staff and management

Lots of locations to work, but there is a lot of pressure to keep the client satisfied. You're the face of the company so when anything goes wrong you're dead and center if you're working in a client office.High turnover, especially with management. You feel like a tiny cog in a very big machine.However, the pay is much better than you can ever expect as a hospital phlebotomist. No nights, weekends, or holidays.

Poor compensation

Overworked and underpaid. Micromanaging. Short breaks. Mandatory overtime. Have to work every other holiday. High turnover rate. Little to no appreciation.

Pros

Food truck for Christmas

Cons

Terrible annual raises less than .50c

Employees don't wanna share knowledge of what they know. While some individuals who have stayed there longer feels like little God .

Majority of their old employees decides who they keep or discard like a piece of paper, I have never seen a place where you practically need to watch your back each second for fear of the unknown.

Benefits

I would not recommend this company at all , it’s really a sweat shop with way to many rules. Some of the people are nice but the company has a large turn over due mainly to the poor out of state management.

Pros

Benefits, vacation

Cons

Hardly no breaks at all or if you take a break you get behind.

Challenging and productive workplace

Fast-paced workplace that was never boring. Fun atmosphere. Sometimes the work could be challenging but managers were always available to assist in anyway.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Not enough teamwork from co-workers

Save your sanity

Management is a JOKE. Aka sits in the corner with their back to everyone, all day, everyday. They are accusatory and gas light everyone. Issues never get resolved or take months and months to finalize, when it was all a simple fix to begin with. Upper management does nothing when there are complaints about supervisors, and they do not care to have any input on how to better manage. They also have zero clues how to actually do your job as a tech. There is no real structure as far as promotions go. They also lie about when those promotions will hit. The company royalty fcked over everyone who worked as a tech during covid. Sent all business/analysis to remote work, and then hired on a bunch of felons to run kit production, leaving more people on site than prior to covid. Health and safety means nothing to them.

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

No one cares about anything, except results, and will sacrifice your sanity for it.

Long hours, no work-life balance. Some disrespectful leadership.

Mandatory overtime every day, and they expect everyone to work like robots. Training is not as thorough as it should be, these are people's lives on the line and alot of the answers to questions are "I don't know" or "do it this way because I said so". Not helpful. Some leaders are caring and fair but most play favorites and treat you like you're less than because they have the title of Lead.Benefits are pretty good for the most part, but I haven't worked an 8 hour shift in months (most of the time its 10-12 hours 5 days a week, plus weekend shifts you are required to sign up for) so all I do is work, sleep, and go back to work and do it all over again. Its nearly impossible to do anything outside of work. I guess if you need the money its the place to go.

Pros

Benefits are pretty good

Cons

Short breaks, unfair and unethical practices from leadership, long hours, mandatory overtime.
