    I worked at Bio-Reference Labs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    4 day work weeks Good benefits package Manageable hours Flexible work environment Enjoyable work Hard working staff

    Cons

    High turnover due to high expectations from management. If you have good work ethic you’ll do just fine. If you plan on skirting by underneath the radar doing the bare minimum – well – you might as well not apply.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Good benefits - job gives you a good medical plans options, competitive with other jobs. That is why you will see many nice older people -You do not need to have any kind of education or special skills - it is a driving and picking up things - pretty easy - many days off, paid holidays, stable pay check - they give you car and phone to drive - so you clock in at home in a car and drive their car, not our own -so saving some money

    Cons

    - Cars have signs and not all communities will allow you to have it - you will have to cover it every night or need a garage and they are strictly for job, not own use - Hired as a day worker but I start at 3.30pm and finish 12.30 am so you are working late evenings mostly - After some time you will be getting more and more things to go pick up, in the middle of your already tight, planned ahead route, and you will be late everywhere and cause delays and need to remember and consider many things, including meeting with your coworkers as you are co-dependable as a driver you are the least person in the company and pressure is on you mostly. If the sales representative said you did it wrong - they believe him, not you, as you definitely not a person who sweet talks for living, so they will be favorited by management and they technically make a company new accounts and new money, so your word against theirs is their win. - you will often pick up after your dispatcher forgot smth, or pick up after somebody did smth wrong or whole things got messed up at all – it will happen often. So talking for dispatchers – it is very hard probably on their end too as very often they call and ask to cover smth up and you run like there is no tomorrow of course, because you understand they are human. On the other hand sometimes you are rushing all day and if this happens too much – you are very stressed out – you are just rushing so much. Owners are wealthy after covid but really cheap still - pay is low and increases like 25 cent a year - I started 11.50 or 12 and after 5 or 6 years it is 13.50. it is 2020 here and i worked this years like crazy as they got super busy with covid and - yes I had overtime pay but I had to do crazy crazy big amount of job and we did not got any bonus. - very hard on you to take your time off – even months in advance - I agreed to work weekends and work without a day off for 3 months. Asked for day off, or vocation, witch I accumulated a lot and was yelled at also then when refused to work weekends anymore as having no time off and being not appreciated and accommodated for 2 days off, was very painful to experience, and was yelled at again. -It was very hard to deal with management after I stopped doing weekends as 3 month having no day off and not feeling appreciated and no promised salary increase throw it all off -Lucky me, my coworkers told me if I will not take vocation after new year it will disappear if it is more than 20 hours. So I requested month in advance but was told it is impossible as it was around Christmas so everyone wanted it. After having to argue, I was given vocation time but offered different days and I had to accept to have it on random days as otherwise it would just disappear and no one from my management would ever send a message to tell us about it. Only know from staff. -There are people who are favorited by management - clearly. I was not one of those. They like the ones who talk sweet to them, they are those who make other people' s job hard and stressful.
