Dead-end healthcare job
Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMSeptember 19, 2018
Amazing stuff going on at TriCore, technology and biomedical science has come a long. Although the work is interesting you will only receive the bare minimum of training you need to perform the job, no education on the actual science or opportunities for you to advance. You'll find management to be composed of college burn-outs who make decisions in a field of science they know little about. Unless you're the smart yet unsociable librarian type who has no ambition for bettering yourself, this company isn't for you.
Pros
Pto
Cons
Unfriendly work environment, Lack of Autonomy, etc.

Medical Laboratory Scientist, Generalist (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMSeptember 11, 2018
The management does not let you to grow and advance your career. Tricore doesn't appreciate all the work that employees do. Tricore doesn't give internal employees a chance to move up.

Laboratory Specimen Technician III (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMJuly 31, 2018
I learn a lot from this workplace about what signs to look for when the job environment is horrific. Although my time there did advance my knowledge of diagnostic testing, it is probably the only thing positive I can say about my experience.

Good Lab, customer service is good, good salary, lots of drama
Logistics Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMJuly 22, 2018
Tricore itself is good company, they do pay their people well. However, they do have an issues with boundaries of professional and personal life. They do believe that if it is discussed within the company they have the right to pull you into the office and comment on your private life. They also have individuals report on each other which does add some conflict among the employees.
Pros
Excellent pay
Cons
Boundaries and drama

Poor Management causes pained environment
lab lackey (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMJuly 11, 2018
I worked at University Hospital lab part-time with over 30 coworkers. It was fine in the beginning, but soon became mundane and stressful. I was at the lower echelon of a tiered structure and was treated as such. A person has to be a favorite to be considered for a promotion or any kind of advancement.
Pros
None
Cons
Understaffed, lack of interest from Supervisors/Leads, low pay, no appreciation, stress, people with bad attitudes hold important positions, many CAP inspection errors, no pay raises

Harassment, lazy leadership, constantly understaffed.
CLA II (Former Employee) –  Abq nmJune 28, 2018
I was harassed for a year and a half until I couldn't take it anymore and quit. The leadership is very unhelpful and promote a scandalous hostile work environment. You learn several different positions in which you do not get paid more to know. Always understaffed making it hard on every individual employee that tries to stay.
Pros
none
Cons
30 minute lunches, not enough pay, favoritism, harassment, retaliation.

Uncertain where this company is going
TLA (Current Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMMay 20, 2018
This started out as one of the best jobs I've ever had. I had a great boss who seemed to care about employee growth and training. He was patient and kept our team from having a lot of drama. We had great upper management. They used to say good morning in the hallways even if you were a lowly employee. Sometimes they even jumped on a bench and helped during an emergency. The pay is about $3-5 an hour lower than the national average for TLA positions. Since implementing a system that caused disastrous effects for the surrounding hospitals, most of upper management quit. Lots of positions have been vacated without replacement both in management and on the floor. Middle management is under a lot of pressure to keep costs down and lower employees were not given merit raises and now items that were never a problem before are being looked at with a magnifying glass and people are being given ultimatums. This has turned from a wonderful job to the average. Patients are the company's number one focus, which is still good. But employees are being treated poorly and this has turned into a high stress no reward situation. I think they will lose a lot of good people if they don't turn around soon.
Pros
great co-workers, doing something that helps the community
Cons
extremely low pay for the work required, high stress, poor management, cutthroat environment is being created by management

Work load varies on what if you're on, overall a great way to better your skills in phlebotomy.
Clinical Lab Assistant (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMMay 11, 2018
If you work mornings the work load tends to be a lot more then in the afternoon. It is a great place to work on your phlebotomy skills and improve. Management can be helpful sometimes, but you must tell them if you have any problems something I had trouble doing, Workplace culture varies on what shift you are but it's not hard to adjust if you're willing to.The most difficult part of the job is having patience with the patients, but the most enjoyable part of the job is that improving and bettering yourself is always encouraged.

It's a good place to work depending on your position.
Clinical Lab Assistant and phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMApril 10, 2018
I don't think it pays enough, but the same could be said about many jobs in Albuquerque. As a phlebotomist, we were paid 10.80/hr, but that was a few years ago, and I've heard the pay has been raised for that position since. It's a top heavy company--- too much management. It has pretty good benefits, and opportunities for continuing education though. I had a mostly positive experience there, but it's a mixed bag.

I learned a lot while working at TriCore. For the most part managers were reasonable and nice to work with. I would recommend working here to anyone in pursuit of a lab or healthcare related job.
