Phlebotomist/Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – November 7, 2017
I love my career at Grifols. Every workplace has its ups and downs. However there are some things that could be improved and, one of them will be the way management handle certain things pertaining to hard workers. Out of all of the work that I've done in my lifetime I found that this is one of my favorites. I love my donors and I think they care for me the same in return. I'm almost a year in and if they keep treating me well I plan to stay there for as long as I'm welcome. Thank you Grifols. I have an awesome team and wouldn't trade them for the world.
Donor Center Technician (Medical Assistant) (Former Employee) – Kennewick, WA – November 7, 2017
For the most part, the Biomat in Kennewick was a good place to work. I was there when they brought in new management and had a big turnover rate with employees. Once management was in place it was nice to work there. They had company BBQs, kept the snacks up in the break room, and I saw after I quit they went to the movies. I think they try to go out about once a month to stay engaged with employees. The only negative thing was the lower end people such as the phlebotomists and DCTs. There was a lot of petty drama and the game telephone was played a lot. I didn't report as much as I saw because I felt like a narc. I should have as the management cared and wanted to stop that behavior. I probably would have stayed.
fast advancement, benefits, management seemed to care
employees were catty to each other, hopefully thats changing

Maintain the plasmaphersis floor, monitor all donors, perform venipuncture. Maintain a clean and orderly environment. Friendly staff but you do stand on your feet the entire day. Short breaks and not spread out very well.
Felt like high school again, you're either in or you're out.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Hampton, VA – October 17, 2017
A typical day consisted of calibrating and setting up machines. Throughout the day donors were connected and disconnected to the machines. Before going home the machines are cleaned and put away and hazard boxes are made. Overall, I liked my job and I was good at it. The donors were great and all were unique. However, I did not like the people I worked with. They were unprofessional acting more like a group of friends rather than coworkers and anyone who wasn't part of their group got the grunt of the work.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Pocatello, ID – October 16, 2017
I was offered a job complete with ALL benefits and training. They did train me, but they never changed my information in their system to full time and kept putting off giving me any benefits. I worked full time hours and never received any type of medical, dental, vision, life, etc.
PHLEBOTOMIST (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – October 3, 2017
I loved all of my co-workers and that's really why I liked going to work. The hardest part of the job was the monotony of doing the same procedures. But you could make it fun if you played games with your co-workers or just trying to set yourself goals everyday.
Technician (Former Employee) – Ohio – October 3, 2017
It all depends on who you are if you decide to work at this location. If you are an a** kisser, you'll go far, regardless of your work ethic. The further up the ladder you are, the less work you do. You could work for 6 or 7 hours before you get a lunch break. It's all about the numbers, the better the numbers, the better the managers quarterly bonuses. You're not a person if you work there, just a commodity.
Fast paced work place where you will interact with people from all walks of life
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – September 26, 2017
What I enjoyed most working at Grifols, was the patients it was fun getting to know them, and hearing their stories.Phlebotomy is something I have passion, and a great respect for. On a typical day I would preform up to thirty venipuncture procedures, obtain vital signs, and, update patient informaton.
The knowledge i gained about Phlebotomy, and meeting new people everyday
Early lunches, no water breaks, lack of communication
Donor Center Technician (Former Employee) – Ohio – September 7, 2017
Always stressful, coworkers and manager's have tempertantrums in front of donors, donors throw fits and get away with it. If you need a job that pays more than minimum wage great. If you are a certified medical professional, get some experience and move on, or don't bother
This company really believes in investing in it's "teammates". The company itself truly believes in it's core values which is difficult to find in corporate America these days. As in any large corporation it is up to the leadership at the facility level to really create an environment where the team also feels those core values at play. Professional development is taken very
Phlebotomy Technician (Former Employee) – Midwest City, OK – August 16, 2017
This job was not employee friendly. Went under new management. Manager did not introduce himself for over a week. A donor told management that I was sexually harassing him and they did nothing about him harassing me or other employees.
