I have been working at Quest Diagnostics full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

A steady low-waged paycheck. Good partnerships with other companies like Verizon etc, so you can get a discount on your cell bill.

Cons

Low salary. Little if any, room for advancement or career development. Ambitious, self motivation, assertiveness, having initiative not accepted in a positive manner. Ideas and suggestions taken offensively instead of constructively. Get prepared for retaliation or getting black-balled.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the incompetent Senior Management currently sinking the company. Replace managers and supervisors, who have no idea how to manage or deal with employees listen to your employees.

    Current Employee - CLS I in San Juan Capistrano, CA

    I have been working at Quest Diagnostics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very stable job field, good benefits. After 1st year decent amount of time off. Flexible schedule. If not licensed offers CLS school to advance career from lab associate.

    Cons

    High stress, lots of overtime. Advancement can be very politically motivated.
    San Juan Capistrano location is far from everywhere and down an accident prone 2 lane highway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give back what you expect form employees, need to have better raises if you want to retain talent.

    Current Employee - Laboratory Technician in San Juan Capistrano, CA

    I have been working at Quest Diagnostics full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Able to listen to mp3 devices while at work. Have a chance to meet interesting people at work.

    Cons

    Unless you have a minimum of Bachelor's Degree in Biology, Chemistry, or Biochemistry, this is NOT the job you want to work for an extended period of time because you will get slightly above minimum wage with very slight raise per year, and with little to chance of promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give all junior level employees a raise to at least $15/hour. Spent more budgets on employee's benefits and less on trivialities such as cleaning the stone tiles or making products like hats and balloons and give them out as Christmas presents. Hire better people for upper management such as Human Resources; the employees need someone who can really listen to and understand what employees need (especially junior level employees) instead of another random burreaucrat who only does what he/she or what the executives want.
