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.

HIM RISK AND COMPLIANCE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMApril 4, 2018
Fun, great place to work. Good work/life balance. I was able to grow and ask questions and get the right answers. The culture was great, Tricore is invested in the latest technology. Leadership/management was involved and transparent with their employees. Pay was competitive.

Clinical Trials Clinical Lab Technologist I (Current Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMFebruary 16, 2018
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.

Loved the work, not so much the environment
Medical Laboratory Scientist II (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMFebruary 6, 2018
Healthcare has become disease care in the US, but I never felt that so plainly as when I worked for TriCore. Not only were there not enough people to cover the job effectively, nor adequate supplies to carry out the job, but bullying and harassment was overlooked by management leaving the environment hostile 24/7.

Medical Technologist (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMDecember 12, 2017
The company is growing and taking on additional projects. However, they are not taking care of the employees. There is a lack of resources, staffing, and support. This has definitely had a negative impact on company culture.

Good company. To many micro-managers that were not in management position. Trained only to do the position you were hired for. Very little room for advancement.

Patient Access Specialist (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMMarch 2, 2017
A typical day at work, patient interaction, as well as working with fellow employees. I learned that going above and beyond your work duties is appreciated by the patients as well as self gratification.

Project Manager - Project Management Office (Current Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMDecember 6, 2016
TriCore is an expanding company still undergoing a culture shift. While it does important work helping to provide outstanding patient care, executive management is unable to provide good vision, or make important decisions in a timely manner.

Management needs a redo
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Albuquerque, NMAugust 20, 2016
With little or lack of experience in management, Tricore seems to be on a shortage of leadership skills. Poor leadership styles restitute poor work ethic. I was told by one manager that communication should remain a one way street, manager to subordinate and nothing more.
