Collections Specialist (Former Employee), Omaha, NEApril 17, 2014
Pros: wonderful company to work for
Cons: the schedule takes time to get used to
I loved going out on blood drives, meeting new people and using my knowledge on a daily basis. The company is great to work for, with wonderful benefits. I loved working with the supervisors and fellow co-workers. I learned a great deal about different aspects of Phlebotomy and patient care. The hardest part was adjusting to the schedule at first but – more... once I got the hang of it I loved it. – less

Pros: good pay.
Cons: bad leadership. no ability to progress in the company.
I loved the freedom and the ability to learn and grow. I liked being able to work at different locations all the time. Lifting heavy equipment was more of a work out, and that was a bonus.

It's an alright place to work, but tough!
Apheresis Recruiter/Receptionist (Former Employee), Murfreesboro, TNApril 9, 2014
Pros: the insurance benefits
Cons: short lunch breaks and micro management
A typical day at the American Red Cross always started out on a good note. I worked with great co-workers and donors daily. I learned that everyone and every situation needs to be treated in a very special way depending on each individual.
The hardest part of the job was after meeting all my goals that were set and trying to surpass those goal, which – more... I did, then being told that was not enough by management.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to be a part of something that helped people who would otherwise continue to get sick or even die without the products I recruited every day from donors who were more than happy to come in and donate. – less

Helping breast cancer patients.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCApril 8, 2014
Pros: meeting new people and helping when needed
Cons: seeing patients that were really sick
As a breast cancer survivor, I was happy to give back to the community. It was very confusing to me when I was first diagnosed. To be able to direct newly diagnosed patients to the resources they needed gave me great pleasure. A typical day was answering phone calls and answering questions or just listening when patients wanted to talk. The hardest – more... part was knowing that some of the will have a harder time with their diagnosis than I did. – less
