    Pay rate is low for the amount of responsibility you take in. No room for growth within the company. They prefer to hire outsider instead one of their owns.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good insurance benefits and nobody breathing down your neck all day.

    Cons

    The supervisors have no idea what they're doing. If your not one of their "favs" or in their clique, you tend not to matter. They hire people who either can't read, write, speak and understand english or they hire young women who are obviously products of their environments and it shows. The supervisors have no best interest in helping anyone excel because their to busy stabbing each other in the back. NO ROOM FOR GROWTH and/or ADVANCEMENT!! They fail to realize they only reason they have their jobs are because of the good phlebs doing a good enough job to keep client accounts open. They won't pay us the money some of us deserve.

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

    Pros

    Benefits and coworkers were very hardworking and helpful

    Cons

    Management is all family, no room for advancement. Micro Managing is ridiculous. Workers are not valued or encouraged. Okay place to work if you are retiring or want some part time work on the side. Not a place for advancement or recognition.

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k plan, Life insurance & flexibility with hours. Great co workers, enjoyable environment, good salary & training is on point.

    Cons

    No room for advancement after working half your life dedicating yourself to the company for more than a decade & being tossed to the side for an outsider coming in. It's just sad to know that loyalty means little to upper management when you are striving to move up in the company that you worked blood sweat & tears for.

    I have been working at Bio-Reference Labs full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great medical benefits and somewhat flexible hours that's about it.

    Cons

    Unless you kiss butt there is no room for growth. Pay is horrible. You are watched as if your child. Lots of favoritism. Not a equal opportunity work environment. Constant change but unless you're management you won't be notified. Horrible communication between management and employees. Employees coming into the department with no experience are getting paid the same as or more than employees that have been there for years.
