    I have been working at LabCorp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In Greensboro/McLeansville Offices Specifically: Positive Environment, Nice Office Environment, No Desk Sharing. Listen to Music and Podcasts while you work.

    LabCorp Overall: Great Orientation and Training OfferedStable Company, Very Nice Benefits if you pay attention! 3 Weeks Paid time off a year, Automatic 3% 401k Company-paid contribution and Health Insurance and other benefits offered RIGHT AWAY, STARTING ON DAY ONE of being an employee. Stock Options (at a 15% discount) offered starting 6-12 months after being hired. Life and Disability insurance offered for cheap. Free Healthcare dollars and large discounts offered on their health insurance if you are Tobacco-Free and/or have a BMI under 30.0.

    Cons

    The pay rate is fairly low for an office job, currently around $12-$13/hour. Almost everyone there has a second job on the side to make up for it. Signing up for "Order Entry" in particular can be rough because you are held to such a high speed quota, but every process in the building is now getting held to higher and higher standards for speed.

    Before getting hired here, I read another review here on GlassDoor about the office being a "high school environment", and that sometimes rings very true. The turnover rate is fairly high for an office. Your every moment on your computer is at least theoretically monitored in multiple ways, but most people get away with at least a few things each that they aren't supposed to do because the rules are so strict. You supposedly aren't allowed to use the instant messenger, email, or internet to do anything other than LabCorp work. You aren't supposed to speak to your co workers about non-work-related subjects other than on designated breaks. When doing something as simple as ordering lunch with your co-workers for instance, you are left no choice but to break at least one or two of these rules in a single day.

    For the entire time I've worked here, we have been required to fill out our "IOR", where you acccount for EVERY MINUTE of EVERY DAY. This is on top of "Verint", which already monitors and records every moment of every day of what exactly you are doing on your computer and "Cisco Status", where you update in real time what task you are on throughout the day. Everyone, out of necessity, finds a way to "fudge" their numbers and trick the system in a variety of ways to make them look better.

    Advice to Management

    If you can't pay us more with money, pay us with a little more respect in our day-to-day work lives without requiring us to lie by having us report how every minute of every day went. This job takes brains and expertise. Don't treat it like a factory line when it isn't.
    With that said, the benefits and training are incredible and I'm grateful for my job and the people I work with. Thank-you for keeping the workplace nice and the building clean, updated and upgraded. The human resources and training departments in particular are great, which most employees will quickly realize in the first couple weeks of being hired.
