Great place to work
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 25, 2015
I love working here, the only reason I have to leave is because my husband is being relocated. The hours are a bit off, so you will need a good support system at home. Overall compensation is average, could be better, but they hire people right out of school.
Pros
everyday is different
Cons
might not get a lunch everyday

Great experience for new grad phlebotomist
Phlebotomist/Apheresis Technician (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 5, 2015
Lots of hours, Usually 50+ hours a week. Slows down during summer months, lucky to get 40 hours a week. You definitely get lots of phlebotomy experience. Fun, fast paced environment. Lots of room for growth and promotion.

Was a fun place to work for.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TexasJune 9, 2015
The blood center was a great place to work for. I had learned a lot in the time I was employed. Worked many blood drives, and ended up working at a fixed facility. I learned to take platelets and plasma from donors, as my skills had improved during the time I was there.

having a family can be a little difficult but the over all support of the company is there for you. Being able to travel and meet different people and have fun while working makes everything worth while.

Mobile Team Supervisor II (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 17, 2014
Stay true to who you are and let no one change it. It is a good place to start, however may not be for everyone. Demanding and you must be reliable. I have nothing bad to say because I was there for 12.5 years. Loved what I did and how it impacted someone's life.
Pros
travel and meet all types of individuals
Cons
core values and mission statements are not followed by each department.
