horrible job
Blood Draw Tech II (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAApril 23, 2014
Pros: $$$$
Cons: not worth it hours and and joke of management
This is a job for people who have no kids or life.! You get your schedule 3 weeks in advance but 2x's a day are required to call a VM to see if your blood drive has changed. There are times you will drive to the other side of the state to a blood drive to only be there for a few minutes for them to send back 20 minutes from your home. No one has the – more... correct time ever!!

Only 3 lates in a year! – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCApril 22, 2014
Pros: very flexible with time.
Cons: not enough pay for wha your worth
A typical day is very busy with making materials for our donor reps and making sure their packets are complete and accuarate for their sponsors. I learn something new everyday wheather its a new program or how to do something on excel or word. I love my co-workers they are the best to work for. Very patient and understanding. The hardest part of the – more... job really isn't one. The most enjoyable part is being with my co workers who are my friends. – less

Pros: pay, benefits, coworkers, training

I loved working at Red Cross. Loved my coworkers, loved the training, loved the pay and benefits. The hours were long, sometimes 13 hour days, and we didn't get lunch breaks, just fifteen minute breaks (if we weren't too busy.)

Pros: good pay.
Cons: bad leadership. no ability to progress in the company.
I loved the freedom and the ability to learn and grow. I liked being able to work at different locations all the time. Lifting heavy equipment was more of a work out, and that was a bonus.

It's an alright place to work, but tough!
Apheresis Recruiter/Receptionist (Former Employee), Murfreesboro, TNApril 9, 2014
Pros: the insurance benefits
Cons: short lunch breaks and micro management
A typical day at the American Red Cross always started out on a good note. I worked with great co-workers and donors daily. I learned that everyone and every situation needs to be treated in a very special way depending on each individual.
The hardest part of the job was after meeting all my goals that were set and trying to surpass those goal, which – more... I did, then being told that was not enough by management.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to be a part of something that helped people who would otherwise continue to get sick or even die without the products I recruited every day from donors who were more than happy to come in and donate. – less

Helping breast cancer patients.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCApril 8, 2014
Pros: meeting new people and helping when needed
Cons: seeing patients that were really sick
As a breast cancer survivor, I was happy to give back to the community. It was very confusing to me when I was first diagnosed. To be able to direct newly diagnosed patients to the resources they needed gave me great pleasure. A typical day was answering phone calls and answering questions or just listening when patients wanted to talk. The hardest – more... part was knowing that some of the will have a harder time with their diagnosis than I did. – less
