- Medtox Laboratories, Inc.29.Jan 2016
At this place, production levels are held as more important than sample integrity. If people only knew how subject to mistakes their drug and clinical tests are.
Attitude towards older colleagues
It would seem that there's a constant air of contempt for employees, company wide.
It's mostly a dead end job. There are pretty much only opportunities to move laterally.
Office / Work Environment
It's run like a sweatshop. Production is tracked and you must go very, very fast.
There's always a shortage of people, so there's mandatory overtime, sometimes there's 1 hour of overtime every day.
It's so surreal, employees openly talk about how they hate it and want to quit.
At any moment you could make a mistake while rushed and get the axe. Or like with viromed, who knows if corporate will do layoffs, or eliminate a division.
The work doesn't require much of a brain. It's just too demanding on speed.
Inclusive / Diverse
They actually have a very diverse employee base.
Suggestions for improvement
- There really needs to be someone to go undercover into each department and see the violations, inefficiencies, and poor management to restructure that whole place. There's also limited options to transfer, or change shifts, due to LabCorp rules.
