Very demanding work place that does not always appreciate success..
Blood Program Consultant - Waukesha County (Current Employee) – Waukesha County, Wisconsin – January 23, 2015
Swings in variety of requirements, from fielding or making calls, to out-in-field meetings, booking events, ordering marketing materials for events, providing community sponsors with promotional tools to make events successful and being responsible for successful event execution every day. Speaking engagements are part of this day also.
I learned to handle pressure of building a budget of relationships to achieve successful blood collections to meet patient need. Learned also to speak more effectively, persuasively and clearly.
Management is very determined to achieve collection goals at all costs.
My co-workers are very intelligent, sensitive and determined folks, who are excellent at what they do.
The hardest part of the job is dealing with the regular pressure of whether programs are going to perform successfully, when those people executing the programs are volunteers.
The most enjoyable part of the job is working for the patients and motivating and partnering with those in the community to help me meet the needs of the patients.
mission is patient care; pretty good benefit package here.
lack of appreciation for successes, poor customer service
