Pros: benefits, nice people, fun monthly themes for employee day
Cons: upper management, formal training (hands on), communication
I found this to be the worst job I have ever had. There was no value to the training, I received; only reading from slide which does not really train a new hire. Upper management had zero communication skills and would smile to your face then get rid of you.
I had a terrible supervisor who has a passive aggressive personality. But the lab people and – more... other departments were very nice. If upper management liked a person, they were treated like gold.
Benefits were excellent while the pay was low but even that is going by the wayside. I took the job because I really believed in the ARC, but the location I was at, spoiled that and I don't even donate blood anymore. Once a month there was something going on that the management sponsored for the employees so that was nice.
I would not recommend going into this type of job if you have been in the workforce for a while, but that just might be the NTL. – less
