Phlebotomist in Philadelphia:
Pros: Nothing . I do my best . Treat the patients with respect. But the company doesn’t see the phlebotomy staff just the numbers in revenue.
Cons: I did phlebotomy in the past See a big change in the caring for the employees. It’s not the same . It’s just a business now . Lots of employees are not happy .
Pros: I appreciated the empathy from the supervisor over me at the time I was hire. 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.
Cons: I really do not have anything bad so say they word with me well but I was able to work with one person. No one seemed to care. Oh I did not like how bad attitudes were never addressed on the job there.
"Good company to work for. Many many tasks to forfil."
Pros: I love working with patients, and Labcorp has given that opportunity.
Cons: Management could be a lot better, raises are horrible. Our customer services phone techs are horrible, and usually don't have an answer. Billing is just as bad. We're asked to take all insurances, and when the patient gets hit with a bill, they turn their back. Not our problem. I hate to look straight at the patient and lie for this company.

Cons: The least thing I like about being a phlebotomist is the pay scale, where I work presently doesn't pay the amount I worth.
