I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs

Pros

Its easy and the pay is better than fast food. The job is tedious I didn't need any experience, but had to type all night

Cons

It can get extremely boring and depending on who you work with the job can be hassle, management is poor and coworkers are extremely rude and favoritism is an issue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is headed in the right direction, but the work environment needs to have more of a professional feel in some departments.

    Bio-Reference. Steady and stable but just the basics and no more.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs

    Pros

    The company is stable and is in fact growing. So at the present time with the country in a recession one does not have to fear being laid off.

    Cons

    I would imagine that part of Bio Reference's success is keeping tight control of its finances so there are just what is necessary to get the job done. This might sound ungrateful considering the current economy, but their success results in a very hectic schedule for me at the job with little time to breathe. They certainly get the maximum out of their employees with little time downtime (time wasting ?) for most people.
    The appearance of the lab is stark. More akin to a factory than to a lab. I have been to other labs and they are more warmly decorated. I suppose this is in keeping with the whole operation. You get the basics but no frills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though the country is in recession you could give a little more. 1.5% increase amounts probably less than $1000 increase annually for most employees - maybe much less.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time for more than a year

    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 !
