    Pros

    Good job for someone out of high school. Extreme entry level position. Good friends were made

    Cons

    Pay. Hours. Management. Safety

     I saw SO MANY people come and go and move on to better things. I build many great relationships with co-workers not management. There was only one person in management I ever really trusted and looked up to and she was my 1st supervisor when I joined the company. I saw the company change owners multiple times from the little old lady who started the company with her husband, to Dr. Liu, then to Mr. McCollum. The first owner was ok I suppose not really knowing her but the next couple of owners were horrible. When the company gained more business they left the small building in Glendale and moved to 2 large buildings in Burbank. I put in so much time and effort the 10+ years I was there and my pay barely moved. I moved through so many departments to try and show I was willing to do what it took to gain a leadership position. But instead they gave them to incompetent employees. I suppose I was comfortable there and that is why many do stay there. I saw a lot of hiring because you were related to someone. Hell even as a supervisor I did the same thing. That is never really a good thing. I hope QUEST Laboratories buys this place, fires everyone at the top, and restructures it. Quest is a good example of a lab that has turned itself around. DiagLabs got sued in 2012 for insurance fraud. I knew it was happening on top of other illegal activities they did. But the 2 guys in sales and marketing that filed the lawsuit actually had the proof. Kudos to them. Honestly if you really don’t care for a career then go ahead and apply. You will most likely get the job ESPECIALLY if it is an entry level job. The turnover is TREMENDOUS here. Close to 100%. I was just lucky to get the experience when I did. What I went through as far as moving around to different departments is long gone. Good luck to you who is reading this. Enter at your own risk. I am not joking.

    Advice to Management

    Either change or just quit and get some real leadership in place. I can only name a handful of people I looked up to as REAL leaders. I hope Quest buys and takes over this company and fires you all. 90% of you are full of it and would suffer greatly if you lost your current position.

    Pros

    a lot of good hard working people there to this day i still am friends with

    Cons

    management and up don't know what they are doing. its the blind leading the blind management doesn't listen to staff that have experience in the job we were hired to do.

    Advice to Management

    listen to what the staff is really saying and open your eyes to all the fake suck ups you have as management that don't know what they are doing. all they have managed to do is perfect pointing the finger, throwing each other under the bus and making other people do their "Special Projects" so they call it . all it breaks down to is management do not know what they are doing. and management wont stick up for you when it comes to serious stuff. This was my dream company to work for but once i was in . I was seriously disapointed they refuse to honor their promises waste time but demand you to work over and beyond for them . nepotism like crazy every department is at war.

    Pros

    I left. That was the only pro. (I loved some of my coworkers)

    Cons

    Very understaffed. Make you work alone on the weekends for 16-19 hours straight. Call starts at 8am and goes until 11pm. 11p to 8a are stats only. And they happen often. It is NON STOP! If you call and say you need a break or help you get told "well this is how you get your hours." Many facilities will call you back 3 to 4 times a day for non stat, routine things. It is hard to get there in your time frame when they are over 2 hours away and keep calling stuff in. Turn over is insane. In the 7 months I have worked here 5 people have come and gone. You never get off when you are supposed to. It's by hours...not minutes. Hope you don't have a family or life. No one is happy here. We also just took on some prisons. We were thrown in there all on our own. Many prisoners walk around and there you are...trying to find where to go with prisoners surrounding you. Very unnerving. No escort to take you to the nurses station.

    It is March. My last dosimeter reading was in September. Asked to see a recent one and was told to stop being a pest. My safety is important! No lead aprons and no readings. Said that is illegal and was told to stop throwing around "legal mumbo jumbo." You get a 3% raise every 18 months if the manager likes you. There is favoritism. You will get the crap shift all the time. Have fun working full time hours, but never getting full time pay or benefits. (You average 50 hours a week) FT averages 32. Low pay. The car is not maintained well so the windshield wipers, tires, brakes, etc are awful. So driving at night and in the rain is horrifying.

    They have changed their name a hundred times...Mobilex/Trident USA/Symphony Diagnostics...why??

    Advice to Management

    Quit

  6. Disappointing, frustrating and demoralizing

    Pros

    The camaraderie of working with some great people who are in the same situation. The chance to learn new skills.

    Cons

    Not enough staff. Outdated operating systems. Never have had a review or merit raise. Always being compared to the office where it seems they want to move operations.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent and supportive. Give reviews and merit raises. Keep your employees updated with changes and plans for future staffing and updates on the oprating system. The absence of these basic points has. caused morale to be non existent.

    Pros

    This is a solid growing company with may opportunities to gain valuable experience. The company has many growing pains, but that in itself is the opportunity for motivated hardworking career seekers.

    Cons

    PAY. It's below par. That being said, you can look at it 2 ways. The field employees are in theory not working their entire shift but do get paid an average rate and reimbursed for driving. As for everyone else, this company serves as a great springboard. Meaning, you can work here, gain experience and a greater skill set and move on to make more money. Its almost like an investment in your career that will pay off at the end.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to hold on to your talent. You are only helping your competitors but acting as a springboard.

    Pros

    Exposure to different culture and benefits are good.Some good people and some great leaders.

    Cons

    If you're new, ready to take over another person's position and would like to learn from them, better be prepared to hike the trails, hang over the cliff, enter the wild jungle where the most wild animals are ready for their next prey- before they teach you the ropes of what they do. No proper training for new employees- they expect you to know the company policies as you enter the building. The management don't care about the non-management employees. Nepotism, Politics everywhere and hiring poor leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you wanted to be treated.

    Pros

    consistent hours of work, when you needed overtime it was there.

    Cons

    no raises, and they need to listen to their employees a little more and not blow them off. They say they give second chances, but they tend to not to it.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to give second chances, then give second chances.

    Pros

    Learned a lot about systems and keeping your head above water in a sink or swim environment. Constantly challenged and working under pressure. Each day there was another fire to put out, which at the time, felt like job security. Some good people to work with.

    Cons

    No transparency from upper management. Current management has zero education and minimal experience with systems or computers. Obvious favoritism from higher ups to certain staff. Clear that upper management is driving staff to quit with plans of moving billing operations elsewhere, steadily increasing workloads with no additional help.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent to staff so that the good people with families to support can look for work elsewhere with a solid company that will appreciate their efforts.
