    I worked at Bio-Reference Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at BioReference. Pay and benefits were fantastic; and I really enjoyed working with my co-workers.

    Cons

    In my opinion, at the time, leadership of the IT department was lacking. The employee review process went away during my time there, and at many times, leadership was lacking in regards to providing feedback and inclusion in meetings I should've been attending.

    I worked at Bio-Reference Labs part-time

    Pros

    There are no Pros for this company, Nothing at all. They dont treat you like a person. No respect for employees what so ever.

    Cons

    Favoritism rules apply to some people not all. Manipulating the employees, never have a good word to say to employees only bad. Firing people for no good reason, shady mostly lazy supervisors. They want 100% from the employee and they give nothing back. Moving employees around to other facilities on a whim without prior notice. They don't care if your child is sick you must be at work no matter what. understaffed. Terrible management. If they see you happy somewhere they quickly change you to another facility. Terrible Terrible Terrible Job. would not recommend to anyone. Maybe to my worst enemy.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Use of company vehicle to do route

    Cons

    Dont pay overtime worked, do not reimburse expenses on fixing car, delay on getting uniform, stopped getting yearly driver's bonus. Hourly pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Please look more into what the courier does for the company than other departments and consider a well deserved raise and dont keep us on the bottom of he list which is totally unfair after what we go through out there to bring in your specimen to the laboratory.

    Pros

    Unfortunately no pros to comment on.

    Cons

    Horrible management with questionable skills and lack of knowledge. Employees are terrified of approaching certain manager's because of lack of management. Knowledgeable manager's were laid off and company was left with very questionable manager's.

    Advice to Management

    Please be respectful to employees. It is very unprofessional to call out employees in front of their peers and in most cases unnecessary. Please create a positive environment that cultivates productivity and not negativity.
