Excellent
First Aid/CPR instructor (PRN) (Former Employee), Houston, TXOctober 15, 2014
But low pay. Was great to be able to go from business to business or in house and teach CPR and First Aid classes. Management was great and let you run your classes the way you wanted, as long as all material was presented

Got Blood?
Mobile Unit Assistant (Former Employee), Burlington, VTOctober 10, 2014
Pros: making a difference
Cons: highly regulated.
A typical day as a Mobile Unite Assistant at the American Red Cross, is a combination of a organized Circus, mixed with a tad crazy!. You start your day early and load up all the medical supplies and snacks, ice, drinks, blood bags, beds, paperwork that you will need for a mobile blood drive. All loaded into a 24' box truck, and away it goes to that – more... days site. Once there its all unloaded and set up, all the beds, snacks, medical supplies, blood bags and drinks. What did i learn?, so much about Bio Medical technology, FDA Regulations, Donor reactions and Medical Questions. The Hardest part of the Job, would be the physical part of it, the heavy lifting. In some locations we had to battle steep stairs, tight hallways. The Management, at times could be a challenge, as few came out on the road due to their jobs. So this at times made it very hard for them to meet on the level. But they were dedicated to the Mission of the American Red Cross. My Co-workers were very hard working and dedicated group of people, whom traveled great distances, with long days and at times over nights, all this to insure we meet local\ regional demand for Donated Blood. The Most enjoyable part of my Job, was realizing that my job mattered, and people relied upon me for the Blood they needed. – less

Great place to work for! I was honored to be hired by such a great company years ago. I have truly enjoyed my co-workers and donors. I had a lot of fun in what I did for a living. Their has been a lot of changes recently, management changes, insurance changes, structure changes. I don't feel the stability I need as a provider for my family anymore.

Medical Technologist/Quality Control Department (Former Employee), Little Rock, AROctober 7, 2014
Pros: relaxed environment, detailed technical procedures for every task performed, great qa department.
Cons: management was too laid back and unprofessional
Low stress environment for the most part. Work was not time sensitive and there were no critical situations to deal with. Worked at my own pace. Co-workers were mostly students, which limited the tasks they could actually perform. Work environment was almost too laid back causing an unprofessional atmosphere.

Overall enjoyable experience.
Phlebtomist (Former Employee), Orem, UTOctober 7, 2014
Pros: we were compensated for our travel time.
Cons: we had a very short break for lunch.
We would either be assigned to work in the donor center or out on mobiles. If working on a mobile, our day consisted of unloading our trucks of the equipment to be used, set up the mobile draw station, perform health histories, phlebotomy and then take down the equipment and load the trucks back up. I very much enjoyed my co-workers. I love working – more... around happy, hard working people and that is what I did. The hardest part of that job, for me, was the unloading and loading of the trucks. It was a very physical job as far as that goes. What I enjoyed most were my co-workers and the donors. I met some of the most amazing people who truly inspired me. – less

Hospital Services Technician (Former Employee), Omaha, NEOctober 6, 2014
Pros: excellent training, generous pto
Cons: no job security, little to no opportunity for advancement, low wages.
Excellent and comprehensive job training, but little to no job security due to severe financial issues throughout the organization. Many wonderful, professional co-workers, but some co-workers who have been in their positions for 30+ years and are threatened by any new employees in their departments, and so they can be very difficult. This is an organization – more... I would have loved to have worked for ten years ago, but I believe it was a mistake to work for them recently, with their many internal problems and upheavals. – less
