    Pros

    Good salary, I've heard great things about Bio-Reference. This is why I would love to work here. I pray someone gives me a chance.

    Cons

    I don't think they call back if you don't already have experience. That's my only issue. I just became certified in phlebotomy 3/2016

    Advice to Management

    There are people who have become certified and would like to gain experience. There should be a 90 entry level position for us. Where we work and prove we are capable of being employed even though we don't yet have 1-3 years of prior experience.
