    Former Employee - Phlebotomist in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Bio-Reference Labs part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed the customers/patients. No better or worse than any other laboratory as far as workload is concerned.

    Cons

    Company has many management issues. Particularly on the supervisory level. Cannot keep a capable supervisor for phlebotomy. Last one was fired and the latest is a nightmare. Had problems with short checks and long resolution times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct employee satisfaction surveys and hold supervisors accountable for their actions.

    I worked at Bio-Reference Labs full-time

    Pros

    If you work in NJ, TX, or FL and very select other markets you can do well. Everyone else is screwed.

    Cons

    Majority of employees can make only so so money with no opportunity for more. Management is the worst I've ever experienced. Disrespectful and demeaning. No career development or advancement opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire them all and bring in good people.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and insurance for company

    Cons

    Opening up new Psc and having no patients sitting there for a whole month with doing absolutely nothing hence why they are at the bottom of the lab list

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't have supervisor management ask employee for prior lab info. Work on bldg your own empire

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great medical benefits and somewhat flexible hours that's about it.

    Cons

    Unless you kiss butt there is no room for growth. Pay is horrible. You are watched as if your child. Lots of favoritism. Not a equal opportunity work environment. Constant change but unless you're management you won't be notified. Horrible communication between management and employees. Employees coming into the department with no experience are getting paid the same as or more than employees that have been there for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying employees what they're worth. You have good employees that have been part of the department for years show them some gratitude and give them the pay they deserve. Take a look at your team leads and management. Stop treating employees like they are children.

    Current Employee - Dispatcher in Elmwood Park, NJ

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The medical benefits and all the employee discounts are the real reasons why I am still working for this billion dollar company.

    Cons

    There is too much diversity, too much favoritism, no advancement unless you kiss someone's butt or sleep with them. The raises are an insult to us as working human beings. When there is an opportunity to try to move up or should I say transfer to a better department, they give it to someone else or make you wait for a year or so

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is look over your managers and supervisors, especially in the transportation department. Very sneaky, and deceiving

    Pros

    Steady work and good benefits Something to put on a resume.

    Cons

    Mandatory weekends and without rotating shifts, The day shift is a skeleton crew but the over night is packed with people because they only hire for nights. Focus on work output over quality. The pay is below par even with night differential. This is a revolving door company.

    Pros

    GREAT HEALTH BENEFITS AT ALMOST NO COST!! FREE LAB WORK!

    Cons

    unstable superiors, at least in my department which is the only one i could give you my thoughts. Way too much favoritism, people bringing personal issues into work, everything is just oh so horrible. My "supervisor" quit and left the building cursing, our doctor has a meeting with us blaming the staff for the instability of the supervisor and WE were the reason she quit, the next day she was in the office has if nothing happened!! the director took NO action for her actions!! If you want to suffer from anxiety and depression i recommend you work for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    QUIT !
