    I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good training; decent orientation; nice co-workers; good benefits.

    Cons

    Foul language from management; low pay compared to competitors; mandatory 6-day work weeks that still barely get you over 30 hours a week; having 30 minutes deducted every day for meal breaks you never get to take; very poor HR call center with inconsistent answers to questions; management has their favorites while ignoring others; sending drivers out in very dangerous weather no matter what.

    Pros

    Only good you can work from home sometimes

    Cons

    High turnover, low pay, treat long service employees badly, and have high expectation to the public and can’t deliver, so they cut, cut, cut benefits, recognition, and vacation if you’ve worked along time. They work you to the bone, and keep getting rid of people! You do 3 times the work you used to. HR leaders suck! Everyone fears losing their job of they say anything. Just voted in the union for Logistics and... bad Teterboro leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your leaders that bring a toxic work environment, bring in better talent that cares and improve pay and benefits.

    Pros

    Get decent health benefits and paid lab work since you work for the company.

    Racist supervisor and difficult manager to work for. There is no room for growth, production based environment (not quality), health hazard, and low pay for the work that you do.

    I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time

    Pros

    Nothing much really to be honest.

    Cons

    You get paid $14 an hour to do 3 people's jobs. You are over worked, over stressed and low pay. No growth nothing. They took away water/coffee cups from the break room, cut benefits and time off accrued. This is a very cheap company.
