Pros: you help save someone' life.
Cons: a lot of traveling for those that prefer to be closer to home often.
The American Red Cross is a household name. You are or should be proud of the job that you do when working here at ARC. No previous experience required and you get full training to start. If you enjoy traveling; this may be the job for you. You can be away from home 5-6 days out of the week depending where you are located and what crew you are working with. The hours can be long, but the job that you are doing is fully rewarding. I wouldn't recommend this job for those that have little ones or obligations with care of family members since you may be out of town for most of the week. I enjoy my job because our donors are taking time out of their busy day to DONATE their blood WILLINGLY to help save some stranger's life. People don't have to do it if they don't want to..but you have donors who do it time and time again. People donate gallons and gallons of their blood..not because someone made them..nope..they do it out of the goodness of their heart.
