    I have been working at LabCorp

    Pros

    Working with Labcorp is wonderful, I'm the type of person that don't like people looking over me, I know my jobs and the things I have to do to get my job done. Their is no one watching me at all times, love it.

    Cons

    Really hard to get transferred to another sight, supervisors already has in mind who they want to work under them, really unfair system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure everyone is getting treated equally, and getting the chance to interview for jobs that they have bidded on.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, extremely nice co-workers, hands on, overtime is usually avalable, and feeling like you're impacting patients' lives in a positive way

    Cons

    Most likely you'll be working a late night shift, minimal raises (.25-.50 a year), work can be very monotonous, and mismanaged at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensate your employees better, show them that they're actually cared about and not just robotic work horses

    Pros

    Company car (depending on job title), good benefits, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    The pay raise system sucks. It takes 5 years to make a dollar more, even if you score in the 90's in your review!!! No accountability among management. Everything is the lower level workers fault. The members of leadership that are knowledgeable aren't paid any attention. Company keeps high profits up top.Too much of the day is spent for the company. Family time is non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    5 day weeks for those who clock 45 hours Monday through Friday. Make the raises worthwhile.

    Pros

    The paid time off is generous. Every week you work you accrue 2.77 hours towards time off. Some of the managers are great and other not so much. I happen to have a good one. Usually overtime available.

    Cons

    Only 6 paid holidays a year. They are very strict on how time is taken off. They are getting very nitpicky about simple little things. There are always employees that have to push it but instead of dealing with the few, they put more constraints on everyone. They spend money on doing things for their employees that could really be spent in better ways. Low pay.

    I worked at LabCorp as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    There was a strong work team in the Data entry department. Everyone is always very helpful and the people in the Data entry team always are very happy group.

    Cons

    Pay rate and raises are low for this company and although the team and co-workers are all very nice, but in order to keep employees long term I feel the pay rate should be better.

    I worked at LabCorp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lab testing is relatively insulated from economic downturns so you don't have to worry too much about layoffs. Has pretty good benefits. Vacation time (18 days per year to start).

    Cons

    As with so many big companies, upper management is out of touch and too slow to react. They seem to have endless people with "titles" and making $100k + but then they cheap out with what most people would consider a "must have" such as spare tires for courier vehicles. Ever heard the term "pennywise, pound foolish"? That's Labcorp. Labcorp is the 2nd largest lab in the country behind Quest Diagnostics. Problem is, they will always be number two. They need to beef up their customer service (call center) experience. They are very, very far from "world class". A company of this size should offer a call center experience that is second to none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so divisionally oriented. Make the company ONE company, not 7 or 8 (or however many divisions there are). Have uniform policies across all divisions and all work areas. The time off policy should be standard across the country, but not only does it vary across divisions, it varies across departments within the same division. Same goes for shift differentials. They are all over the map. Make a standard policy, and while you're at it, update the time keeping system to automatically pay shift diffs instead of relying on manual input by supervisors. Update the graphics on the courier vehicles. You have 3,000 vehicles driving a half a million miles per day which can act like roving billboards. Use them !! The signs on the LCA cars look like they haven't been updated since 1985. Look at the Quest Vehicles. They have HUGE, MODERN graphics advertising their presence, their DOMINANCE. Think people, think!! Labcorp is so cheap that they don't even put their name on specimen bags. I realize a 10th of cent is a 10th of a cent, but come on now.. Another thing, stop the ridiculous practice of having couriers verify EVERY SPECIMEN that they pickup at hospitals (at least in the Northeast Division). This causes couriers to remain onsite at hospitals for up to 1 hour, and for what? To verify what the customer has chosen to send to us? Imagine bringing a box to FedEx or UPS to ship and the clerk at the counter says "Sir, can you please wait while I open your package and inventory the items you are sending so that I can prove we received them"? No, of course not. You hand them a sealed box, and they are responsible for getting that ONE sealed box to its' destination. Imagine how many more stops a courier could do if he didn't have to spend so much time at each hospital, or how much earlier that courier could arrive back at the lab? This is how it should go: Hospital knows what time courier is scheduled to arrive. Hospital prepares sealed batch bags for each temperature specimens (ambient, refrigerated, frozen). Courier arrives, scans each batch bag containing specimens, leaves. Total time: 2-4 minutes. Batch bags are tracked to their final destination. Inventory, if needed, can performed at lab, not on the road, which holds up countless other specimens from reaching the lab in a timely manner.
