I really enjoyed working with my patients.
I had great Leads/Supervisors up until my last two years at Quest.
My Lead and my Supervisor were too close for comfort. And It seemed as if I was always being picked on. Athough I never had any write ups, I ended up being laid off after I made a complaint about my Lead and my Supervisor to Corporate. So when they say "Open door policiy"
and no retaliation or harrasment, This is a HUGE lie. I talked to a legal expert and since they did not "terminate" me and instead they chose to lay me off, there really wasnt enough evidence to take legal action.
I dedicate five years to quality service with Quest and I never called in. I always gave not 2 but 4 weeks advance notice for time off.
So much for being a dedicated employee.

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.

Care more about your employees. Personally, this is the worst company I’ve ever worked for. The only thing of concern is money-making. Management is stressed and overworked, making them horrible to their employees, which should never be tolerated. If you are at the bottom of the totem pole for this company (med tech, phlebotomists) you are simply there just for money making...
