    Pros

    The company is nation wide and very well known. My branch manager is amazing and patient! My scheduale is very flexiable.

    Cons

    Part of the position is mobile paramedical examiner for life/disability for different insurance company's. Sometimes applicants are a no show or the area that you work in doesn't have a lot of applicants. Therefor, you may have a lot of gaps or be very slow.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and management. Hiring process was pretty straightforward and I started pretty quickly. The pay rate is ok for the area and could be better.

    Cons

    I work the night shift which is rough and it seems that is when a lot of the work gets done. Medical Technologist are stressed so they put pressure on the lower staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management would be to hire more technicians to ensure that the workload can be processed more effectively.

    I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed working for quest. You get to pretty much manage yourself while driving.

    Cons

    The specimens have to be back at the airport by a specific time, which traffic can make that a problem. There is no 401k with quest either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add a 401k to your benefits package
