Benefits are reasonable. Insurance cost very pricey for part time employee. Pay is probably reasonable for phlebotomy, but you are more than just a phlebotomist.
The hours are ridiculous with very early morning start times, always staying late if on late shift, and often working late one night and back early the next day. The day is long too and it is very hard to work anything in your life around these hours. Basically you work from the time you start until you leave with a 20 minute break only. You are not done until the last donor is out the door and all of your shut down tasks are done.
They do put effort into training you before you are put on the floor in a classroom type environment, but it is a lot of information thrown at you quickly. You are with a trainer your first two days on the floor and someone shadows you for your first 45 cases. This sounds good, but no one really connects what you learned in the class to what you are doing on the floor and those shadowing you have little patience for it and probably would rather be doing something else.
The people are basically like any job, some nice and some not, some helpful and some not, etc.
I didn't last long and I was at a place that supposedly was one of the better sites.
Between the donors, the coworkers, and the blood center way of doing things, it was a stressful experience.
It's a job with benefits.
Hours, stressful work environment, expect a lot for the pay.
