I did my clinical at Quest Diagnostics in Hartford on Seymour Street. I count it a privilege and a blessing to have done my practical at this facility. The staff was magnificent. They made my stay very comfortable. The whole atmosphere was people and staff friendly. My experience was great and because of all the help I received, I sent in an application to work there. I am hoping that I get the opportunity to work at your facility.

It depends. More places are requiring ASCP Phlebotomy certification, but at the same time it hasn't helped me land a job at Quest Diagnostics or similar facilities. The training is typically a semester long (four months) and usually requires 100+ hours of lecture and lab, then a 100-venipuncture clinical rotation, and then you can sit for the ASCP certification exam.

Creating a better and safer environment for employees, especially to our patients with limited mobility, like disabled, elderly, or children that are required much more time and cares. My 8 years working for Quest Diagnostics are really fun ( well, most of the time! LOL) and inspiring, especially if most of your colleagues get along well, but nobody’s perfect, sometimes there’s argument between coworkers that we can’t avoid, or angry patient that’s so pushy and wants to be seen right away, but at the end of the day, everyone ones happy. Im also asking to whoever in the management position, either manager, supervisor or director, please please please don’t let your title get into your head, and also don’t bring any personal issues to your workplace, thank you! Oh, yes I forget to mentioned...no matter how difficult your day or having a difficult patient(s) was! Please please please keep a good smiley face all the time for your coworkers and especially to our patients who always visited our clinics. Remember, Always Put Patient First of what we do.

Care more about your Frontline Employees, they are the face of the company. Stop bringing in new employees with higher pay than your faithful employees that's been with the company for years. Stop putting so much work on your phlebotomist without adding help for them.
