    Pros

    Great Company to work for. Decent benefits and time off starts at over 3 weeks for new employees.

    Cons

    Depending on department there can be quite a bit of overtime. Management is upfront about this in the interview process however, so there should be no surprises.

    Pros

    People are family there. I still miss the relationships I made. Benefits and time were are good.

    Cons

    Mid Level Management was not appreciated for the job they did. People felt overworked and underappreciated when they were giving all they had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only hire the managers that can pass a personality test that reveal "people will want to work for you" I had two of them and never had a problem that I couldn't recover from with some redirecting.
    Also, get out there and get your hands dirty too. The clients love to see "big corporates guys mix with the little guy"

    Pros

    Benefits are good.
    2nd/3rd shift differential.
    Distribution management is awesome at working out problems for each individual person.
    As a courier I get access to a company vehicle (which I lease) for personal time - they pay for maintenance, gas, towing, etc.

    Cons

    Hours are mostly all 2nd/3rd shift.
    Not much room for personal growth within distribution.
    Upper management (corporate) likes to point fingers without researching facts beforehand.
    Work/Life balance causes waning relationships due to the fact that I work 2pm-1am. (nature of the beast)
    DON'T work as an accessioner!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask more questions, point less fingers.

    I have been working at LabCorp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Ive worked at many companies and have been quite a job hopper at times. Ive been looking for a company that doesnt just crack the whip and suck the life out of their employees and unfortunately, there are a lot of them out there! LabCorp is good like that. They pay me a good wage for doing work that can be stressful at times, but im not always going at it 100%. I am fortunate to have a great boss who cares. Even his boss is directly involved with us, which is important. But they do not micromanage. They reward and motivate our team by doing positive things to show their appreciation. They also provide people on the road with a company car. Some can use it for personal use and you have to pay for it. Whoever complains on here about it is really complaining for little reason, as the price is probably no more than full coverage car insurance would be and you get to drive it everywhere. Free gas! The benefits package is better than average and they will give you a nice amount of time off both starting and for long term employees. There might not be a pension any longer, but they give you immediate vest in your 401k and they contribute, even if you dont.
    There is a good work/life balance here for me. This is not the case for all positions. I see some salaried positions being taken advantage of.

    Cons

    I am capable of so much more than the work I am doing. Im bored. Not learning much and my job is easy for me. Turn over in my area is low, so even being over qualified, getting a promotion seems so far away. If I leave, it will be because of this. I know how to fix so many things going on that are wrong, but lack the power or authority to do so and can be frustrating at times.

    They kind of "make" you take a big brother health screening by "discounting" your insurance to the rate of what most people in the world pay. It feels a little uncomfortable to have them so involved in my health. At the same time, I found out I had a medical problem through this, so for that I was grateful. I suppose it depends on how you look at it.

    I see a lot of phlebotomists getting treated with a lack of respect. Not from the the way they are spoken to, but what is asked of them for the amount of money they earn. I travel quite a bit. Your job here can really vary on satisfaction depending on who you work with as a phlebotomist. Some places are full of gossip and drama and others are full of laughs and smiles. I always tell people when they interview for a job, look at the faces of the workers around you. Visit them. Talk to them. Do they seem happy? You will probably share the same face they share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stuff rolls downhill. My department for the most part has satisfied and motivated employees. That goes to show what kind of job management is doing.
