"Good company to work for. Many many tasks to forfil."
Pros: I love working with patients, and Labcorp has given that opportunity.

My great-niece was killed 4days after I was hired and I missed far too many days off work but the local management was very lenient with me. But corporate did not see that so I was put on probation and after 14 months of employment I hurt my back and was unable to return to work I lost my just that easy due to to many absences. So I lost everything soon after and decided to move over of state to start over.
