Sr. SharePoint Administrator (Current Employee) – Ashburn VA – September 29, 2014
Okay place to work at. Would recommend to someone else.I love working here I just don't like traveling everyday, sometime I don't get home until after dinner and I have missed anything and everything my children may have done that day.
Copier Technician/Records Clerk (Former Employee) – Peoria, IL – February 7, 2016
American Red Cross has been my favorite workplace. I worked with amazing people,loved my boss,loved working with the volunteers. We had great PTO. I just wish my job wasn't eliminated, but very grateful for the 11 years I worked there. I loved my job, what I did daily, and all my coworkers.
great co-workers, pto is great, good hours, leniant if you had Dr. or dentist app.
Biomedical Collections Supervisor/ Instructor (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – January 28, 2016
Easy to advance due to extreme turnover rate. Schedule is random and difficult to get PTO approved. Blood drives are typically under staffed and way over goal. Resulting in a high stress environment for staff and donors.
Technologist I Quality Control (Former Employee) – Douglasville, GA – January 21, 2016
Great company and excellent work environment and very knowledgeable. Constance changes in work schedule based on manufacturing needs. Employees must be extremely flexible no set schedule. However, great mission and purpose for their patients
Health & Safety Specialist/Income Development (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN and Maryville, TN – January 20, 2016
Fast Pace Day! Always on the go! A typical day at work included working closely with community members, attending community events, meetings, or conferences to promote organizational goals or solicit donations or sponsorships, creating and updating donor databases, securing speakers for charitable events, community meetings, or conferences to increase awareness of charitable, nonprofit, or political causes. My co-workers were compassionate people who served the community with dignity and grace. The hardest part of the job was distancing myself from the people we aided. The most enjoyable part of the job was see people's lives be changed by our volunteers hard work.
Service to others. Meeting new people each week.
You see how disaster can devistate a community. But you also see how a community can rise above.
Donor specialist Level 3 (Current Employee) – Ny Penn – January 20, 2016
Working here you feel unappreciated your hard work goes unnoticed by management and if you do get advancement you are told to keep It a secret. Horrible management by MY ops manager. Being told I'm wrong or I heard wrong if I have an issue she will lie to your face and as for them covering hours when your drive is cancelled due to weather or any other reason they just won't pay you for it I have worked my tail off for this company for more than 2 years and I no longer feel secure in my job. I am good at my job I love my donors and the stories they open up to you. The organization as a whole is crumbling and I don't think they will ever recover!
Poor pay, lunch break not guarenteed, no communication with management, benefits, no home life
Whole Blood and Automated Collections Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – January 16, 2016
The best part of working at the American Red Cross is my co workers and the donors that give up their time to come in to donate blood and platelets so someone in need will have a chance to survive and live a long life. Management could be improved especially with interacting and showing the employees respect and dignity. Overall I probably would not refer anyone to apply for any position at the American Red Cross
Phlebotomy Tech II (Current Employee) – Fountain Valley, CA – January 16, 2016
Each day I work gives me an opportunity to be a part of a team and organization that works hard and diligently to provide quality care.The professional & compassionate care that I provide makes a difference in a persons life and is a reflection on me and the company as well.
