Great place to learn skills for the future

Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee)
Burlington, NC

I have been working at LabCorp full-time for more than a year

ProsLabCorp gives plenty of time off. Starting off you receive 3 1/2 weeks of time off. They have excellent training to start your job off right.

ConsIt is very difficult to get into leadership positions. There are very few and it take quite a bit of time. The health benefits and pay could also be better for the work that we do.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider giving your employees better compensation for the work they put in. Employees do not receive wages that reflect the skill, expertise, and work ethic that one must have in order perform on the job.
