Pros: Easy overtime, saving lives, diversity
Cons: Short to 0 breaks, crazy hours
Your day can start as early as 3 in the morning and go as late as 1030 at night. Some blood drives are 3 hours away which makes for a crazy long work day but the plus side is you get paid for the driving time so you could literally get paid while you are sleeping so that's pretty sweet. You go someplace new every day. Whether its a high school, a collage, a church or a place of business you are bound to meet some very interesting people at this job. Co-workers are gonna be your new family of course because you see them more than anyone else and they are your road trip buddies with this job so make the most of it and bring head phones if your not so favorite people will be accompanying you on your voyage. Management is a little weird just because I was told several things in the interview that never came to pass in the real world such as "a 75 cent pay raise every 6 months" I'd say the hardest part of the job is probably the hours. One day you're working from 1pm to 10pm and the next day you work 430am-6pm and during the busy season you don't even really have time for breaks meaning you don't get to eat until you are driving home. But Kansas City is really good about being flexible and helping you switch with someone else or getting a day off when you need it. The most enjoyable part is that the max that you will actually be doing your job is 6 hours. A blood drive only goes on for 6 hours max, Of course that doesn't include the set up and break down but that stuff is easy but you get paid for all the in between time. There's loads of downtime in the summer.
