What can you say about the ARC that isn't great. I helped save peoples lives.
Telerecruiter (Former Employee), Lansing, MISeptember 28, 2014
On the phone calling potential platelet donors and scheduling appointments. Really caring about making a difference in someones life, living well and keeping healthy. Very knowledgeable supervisors and always ready to go the extra mile. Co-workers there reliable and generous. I'm not a real phone person so just being on the phone so long was hard. Hearing – more... the true stories of people who's lives were saved by platelet transfusions and knowing how much they depended on you to find suitable donors was very rewarding. – less

Its OK
Data Specialist (Current Employee), Douglasville, GASeptember 26, 2014
Its Ok but the job could be better. A typical day at work is very busy. Management is not always on one accord but its OK. Co-workers in general are Ok. The hardest part of the job is working the weekends.

Receptionist/ Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Spokane. WASeptember 25, 2014
Pros: n/a
Cons: n/a
Full filling place of employment. Typical day included taking calls and directing them on to correct person or department. Filing accounts receivables and payables as well as close outs.

My co-workers were wonderful and the management was helpful and professional. The hardest part of the job was not being able to help the people injured during a disaster, – more... as my job was reception so just took the information and passed it on.

Learned a new filing system and was able to put my ideas to work for the red cross and was very fullfilling. – less

Order Management Specialist (Former Employee), Columbia, SCSeptember 25, 2014
ARC is undergoing a veritable overhaul in infrastructure. While it was a great and challenging place while I worked there, the information I get from past co-workers makes the ARC seem like a very stressful and uncertain environment in which to work.
