    Damn right. There is no way I would encourage my kids to have a 100k+/yr job as their first earning experience. They need to spend some time at minimum wage jobs and gain some valuable life lessons that clearly some other people are lacking.

    But they are entitled. Obama told them they are. You should be able to get over paid and do nothing to earn it.

    Unless you went to medical school and graduated as an MD, or your some type of engineer in high demand its unlikely an new college grad will command a high salary. Experience, and time is where those negotiation rights come in. The company wants to know what can you do for me? So without much of a resume be thankful they give you a chance to prove yourself. If we don't start looking for a new job we could all be serving Fry's and a coke because quest isn't going to make it.

    It's a joke. Young sales people don't work. They come in daily ,do little ,get their car benefit and bring in doctors maybe or accounts that are crap.
    Old sales got the productive accounts unless you have a hot babe who the doc falls over.
    Quest lays off on a regular basis just to keep the profits at a level the stockholders will be happy with. I worked 13 years in Teterboro and 8 years in Long Island. They will pay you off with a great package. They never keep their staff not even the good ones especially in the tristate area.

    Is the package for sales the same as the rest of the company or is it different? So far the package for the company is 2 wks salary/full year of service unless you are AmeriPath then it is 1 wk salary/full year of service. But sales could certainly be different?

    And the big question others are asking is whether JH will be cutting this package for the rest of the company down to 1 wk/yr come the new year.

    Maybe this will calm everyone. There are no layoff's planned. Align yourself with the 5 point strategy. Especially restoring growth. But seriously, shit will hit the fan somewhere shortly before the Q1 earnings report is released. I have heard it called Operation Mass Exodus.

    Merry Christmas!

    There is nobody left to leave. You can't restore growth with operations run so thin. You need to invest money to make money. You cannot cut your way to profit. We are losing out to regional, local and boutique labs because of pricing and poor service. Very sad

    Right "there is nobody left to leave" I think that you need to do a head count again.

    It's ok. We just purchased Solstas so we will have some business back. I was talking to a local rep of theirs and they all seem to be drinking the acquisition kool-aid. They think we will be the ones leaving and they will take our place. Some of their 20-30k monthly checks will be no longer coming!!! Idiots!

    Another useless spending spree buy a mom and pop lab to restore growth, right, more head count, more saturation with no real growth. The end of Q1 will be the end. Heads will have to start rolling I predict the typical useless departments like marketing will start to go, then SD hang on to your heads because they will want to blame YOU for their territory under performing after all it's not the company's fault they decided to cut mangers by promoting them! Now we have better paid idiots at the helm! It's so sad it's funny
