The need for blood.
Blood Collections (Former Employee), Omaha, NEFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: pay
Cons: unprofessional supervisors/leads
Co workers were very rude and not willing to help you when needed. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to the donors. The hardest part was not being able to talk with the manager as there was much unprofessional work with co workers and nothing was done about it. The language was very vulgar in front of donors. There was much gossip of managers and co workers drinking together. When it was brought up to the manager and the "click" that was within the job, nothing was done as it continued.

volunteer Registrar for Red cross shelters (Current Employee), Tinton Falls, NJFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: many
Cons: on call at all hours
compassion- working in shelters, doing fire calls, lining up services for after disasters.

Hardest part were clients that were ungrateful.

Best part yet was getting a woman and her children into a hotel with a food and clothing voucher after a fire.

Mobile Unit Assistant (Current Employee), 2220 Silvernail rd PewaukeeFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: daily stipend, staff is enjoyable, meet new people every day
Cons: schedule
My job is a mobile unit assistant, when i get to the center i need to figure out what I have to take to make the blood drive successful. I work with 5-15 staff members each day depending on the location of the drive and the size. Once I get to the site I then have to unload the truck and set up the room so we can have a blood drive. The hardest part about my job is the schedule, I work three to four 10-13 hour days that require me to wake up at 2 am or work as late as 10 pm. The best thing is knowing that I am one part in the whole process of saving people's lives.

Training Specialist (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAFebruary 23, 2015
Red Cross used to be the place to want to work and grow professionally until the organization decided to do a face lift and become more like corporate America. It is not the same organization our Grandmothers used to trust and believe in, that's for sure.

Anonymous (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAFebruary 20, 2015
The organization has a great mission, but paid staff is expected to do more than is humanly possible. Because of this, there is no longevity among paid staff. However, the lower level staff and volunteers are really remarkable people.

Satisfying and Fulfilling
RN ,special tech II (Former Employee), San Jose, CAFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: great benefits: financially and personally
Cons: no part time positions, marginal chances for advancement.
Meeting and processing the generosity of people interested in saving lives was fulfilling for me. Learning to work closely in a team environment allowed for great personal growth. With a variety of personality types to work with and serve, my intercommunication skills were vital. I learned the art being an effective follower and support of management.Technically, my hands-on skills in venipuncture excelled and teaching others the nuances of skill was very gratifying.The most difficult part of the job was overcoming donor hygiene issues and realizing their personality and state of outer cleanliness was usually not related to the quality of the final product. Setting an example for professionalism was sometimes met with resistance but following good customer service and sound practice are important to the honorable and necessary work for continued recruitment of donors and meeting the needs of humanity.

Red Day
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: quality co-workers, leads and supervisors, good benefits for full-time
Cons: overnight hours 1am-9am
American Red Cross a great place to work, workers are friendly, outgoing, One day at work I wasn't familiar with IHL area where they test blood for different viruses from what I was doing in Sample Management and a co-worker stop what he was doing to take the time out to help me learn how to work the equipment over in their area, which meant a lot to me that even the co workers want to help an be a team player when it comes to saving others. I really enjoyed working at American Red Cross just knowing what I am doing is saving someone's life, and I really enjoyed and have a passion for it.
