Overworked, poor management, awful donors
Biomedical Technician (Former Employee) –  Valdosta, GASeptember 15, 2017
You are overworked all the time with no pay showing it. You are part time but work full time hours with no benefits. The center manager is terrible. Only certain rules apply to certain employees. The donors treat the employees terribly and get rewarded for it. It is an awful company to work for. They don't care about anyone but theirselves.

Grossly mismanaged
Physician Substitute (Former Employee) –  Santa Fe, NMAugust 19, 2017
The job is great, the company as a whole is mismanaged. They lost millions of dollars last year and are currently being bought out. No advancement. Company is notorious for making payroll errors and they are not easy to work with to resolve matters. I had a co-worker try to file a grievance regarding a violation of company policy affecting her pay. She was ignored for many months despite her persistent efforts and professionalism in trying to resolve the issue. When she was told it was resolved, she found out very quickly after that nothing had changed. Really incompetent HR department. The problem ended up with her seeking and gaining employment elsewhere. This was in a way a tragedy because she was one of the most amazing workers I ever have worked with. It was a big loss for the company for something that should have been resolved. It was their own policy they were refusing to follow, absolutely ridiculous. This place doesn't deserve you.
Pros
There is a paycheck
Cons
Managers are lacking basic management skills. Need a microscope to read the schedule.

Favoritism an issue
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Boca Raton, FLAugust 4, 2017
Due to the facility being 24/7 everyone is expected to work long hours. Favoritism runs high here all the way up to the executive management team. Management will cut corners for those who are their favorites even if it is against company policy. New ideas and new approached are needed to make this company a more enjoyable place to work. Too old school to be a competitive company.
Pros
Excellent Benefits
Cons
Favoritism

Great place to help save lives. The Donors became more like family. You get time and half when you work holidays. They are closed Christmas and New Years.

Worse decision I've made
Biomedical Technician (Former Employee) –  Augusta, GAJune 6, 2017
Coming into Biotest was fun exciting and a great feeling knowing the lives being saved. After a while it started getting dull, a pain each day going in. Management, supervisors, and team leads all have favorites. Employees get treated like peasants if you're frowned upon. They do not take the time out to properly train especially for the donor floor. You get thrown in and you have to pray you don't drown because if you do you're out! It's not a clear facility blood is everywhere.
Pros
Benefits only if fulltime
Cons
Short lunch breaks, over worked, no set schedule

Fast paced; not for every body
Biomedical technician trainer (Current Employee) –  Clemson, SCMarch 27, 2017
I love working for Biotest. The fast pace of the donor floor is sure to keep you busy. The pay and benefits are pretty good. Management has it faults but they are only human like the rest of us. I'm thankful to be a part of the Biotest family.

Great people bad management
Fractionation process technician level II (Former Employee) –  Boca Raton, FLFebruary 24, 2017
Endured two layoffs at the Boca location. The managers have very bad communication with the MFG groups and nothing gets relayed. For example, the most recent layoff we didnt know until the morning when we saw the managers arrive at 0430- 0500 and started calling names. Zero reason was given for who stays and goes. zero employee value assessment zero exit interviews.
Pros
pay, great coworkers, location
Cons
management, communication, employee worth

Pros
Good Benefits, Employees are very knowledgable, Pay was good

I can't say their are any cons honestly.

Great benefits
bmt (Current Employee) –  Conway, AR 72034January 21, 2017
Benefits were great at this company but favoritism is rampant. If you aren't a favorite you won't go anywhere. I've seen promotions given to staff with tons of errors and with major write ups still get promoted repeatedly. This is frustrating and causes a high turnover rate. Hours are not good as there aren't set shifts so you cannot plan anything.
