Donor interaction is more often than not very negative
Customer Service Receptionist (Current Employee) – Decatur, GA – May 17, 2017
CSL is a very fast paced work environment which is expected when donors receive financial compensation for the privilege to donate. Management leaves the door of verbal abuse from donors open for donors to continue to abuse staff time and time again. Low pay.

A Typical day is 130 Donors coming in in which we had to hook them up to a PCS machine for 30-60 min depending on how hydrated they are, we have to constantly check machines for any kinked tubing or any hematomas or no flows from donors. When donors are done we disconnect wrap them up and pay them out logging all information in our PDA about their donation. There are times that a donor may have a reaction in which we have to put them into a return and stay with them until they are feeling better.
Meet many diffrent people, feel like a family, great benifits

CSL plasma doesn't pay their employees enough. There is no room to advance in the company. The employees work more than managers plus end up pulling more than their weight. It does not have a set schedule.

Very busy day with a lot of clients. I learned how to correctly to my job in an efficient and orderly manner. I don't find the job difficult at all, in fact its very challenging. I enjoy interacting with the clients.

Working at Csl plasma is great. Like any job it had its ups and downs. Management is definitely one of those things that are positive. They strive to make you better and push you to your limits when it comes to training. A let down about the company would certainly be the pay. As a phlebotomist making $9 is a snack in the face. I really feel once they increase pay for not only entry positions but all positions than employee turn over will decrease surmountablely. This would result in long jeopardy employees that enjoy their line of work since you do work everyday except for two or off the year.

The management is terrible in the York office. They have "clicks" in there and if you do not get in those clicks you are doomed. You wont be there for long. You have to kiss butt to make it with the company.

clock in , check the word board to see area I would work in. I would retrieve my hospital coat , them I would check in on the floor. I would set up machines for each donor would withdraw the needle when donations are done.
Donor Support Technician (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – May 7, 2017
Typical work day involves clocking in 1-2 minutes before your shift starts. The employee then would get the correct gear (uniform) to be ready for the donor floor. Employee then would start hooking up plasmapheresis machines for donors to get stuck and start their donation process. After the donation process the DST (Donor Support Tech) finish the employee disconnects the
It's work. We all need money to live. This review system is not letting me submit anything that is a repeat of what I said before so I am typing this out to meet a requirement that I believe is not productive.
CSL Plasma was a great place to work. It was very clean and organized. The staff was very helpful and followed regulations precisely. The only bad part about working there was potentially being exposed to diseases.
