    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bio-Reference Labs (Elmwood Park, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 3 managers in a conference room setting. One of them was actually my manager. The interview went well although I was nervous, I felt myself stumbling over my words. I wanted to be swift with my responds but I tended to be hesitant with my answers as they were asking me questions. I think if I wasn't so nervous, maybe they would've have chosen me.

The staff in whole seemed nice. They were all diligently working and could only stop for a second to say hello. All in all it is an interesting place to work.

    Mobile Phlebotomiost Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Bio-Reference Labs.

    Interview

    I interviewed before Bio-Reference bought the company out. It was still Florida Clinical Labs, but the transition was not that bad. They did provide training on their completely new system. They even had people come from the main site in New Jersey to come train a few of us in depth so that we could train others. The only downside is that before Bio bought us we were phlebs and processors and after Bio ought us and the whole transition took place, the hours were cut and more processors were bought in. OT became non existent.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bio-Reference Labs (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was extremely frustrated by the fact that you had to get through all those steps they required, turn in notice and resign your current job, report to New York for orientation and then they have you drug test, sign employee offer etc. If you had been slipped something or if the old wives tail about poppy seeds were true you would be unemployed and out of luck. Additionally, they made me not only report all my medications but take pictures of the bottles and send them in. That is a HIPPA violation in ten different ways. They can not ask you to tell them exactly what you take, quantity, the prescribing physicians, RX #, the Indication for which you take the product and if you get refills.
    For instance, lets say I take IDK, testosterone because I am diabetic. I would never report the diabetes medication on the drug screen, I would only report the Testosterone. They then would request that you take pic of the bottle and pharmacy label and send that in to them. They would never know that I may need that because I am diabetic, they would only see that I am roiding it up and could choose not to hire me for it. Or best case they call and I have to explain why I take it.
    This is a violation of personal health information at best and potentially a law suit if they do not hire someone because of what they learn. The scenario I painted is a very realistic one and the person would have already lost their job, not gotten the BIORef job and all because they are not fully developed as an organization from a H.R. standpoint. they are; too large to be that ridiculous.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Bio-Reference Labs.

    Interview

    It was horrible. Having been interviewed by someone with no medical billing knowledge was a joke. My time was wasted which was a huge let down. Lastly was the insult of the pay.
