Transport Driver, Smith System Defensive Driving (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 15, 2017
Hours are never consistent . Pay isn't the best . The job itself is fun and easy . Coworkers make it better . Things are always changing. Management needs to show they care and employees aren't just a number .
Blood Collections Team & Acting Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fishers, IN – November 17, 2017
Branch Staff have extremely long hours, Mobile Staff pushes equipment carts through snow, Great Training, Hardest part of job is never knowing what to expect from certain supervisors, etc. Most enjoyable part is know you are apart of helping deliver life saving components for many people.

You work with a great group of people here! You are on the road all the time and become very close to your coworkers. Some management are ok, others not. To perform budget cuts, they will fire people without notice and shut down most of the static locations. I personally was then forced to drive an hour to work plus work a 12 hour day, so basically 14 hour shifts. We would be expected to turn around and be back in as early as 8 hours later. You work until all donors are gone, you never turn anyone away. If you have family, you won't see them much. You are required to work every other weekend. Once a year we do a big blood drive at Lucas Oil where we see thousands of people. You are on your feet 16 hours straight.

Excellent mission and coworkers. Management only cares about itself and has no problem with overworking and underpaying its staff. As long as you're collecting those units, that's all they care about. Its an unfortunate part of the job.
Great Mission, Excellent Coworkers
No work/life balance, Management only cares about itself
long hours no set schedule, but rewarding knowing that you help save lives every day
LPN, Supervisor of Blood Collections (Former Employee) – Terre Haute, IN – September 3, 2017
can be rewarding to help save lives. Donors are wonderful people. Can't expect to be treated well by management. Back stabbing, Company does not express concern for staff, do not value loyalty,or years of experience, motto is to get rid of long time staff and hire people with no experience for less pay.
knowledge that your work saves lives, meaningful job
Phlebotomist /Supervisor (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 30, 2017
I've been with the Indiana Blood Center for a long time and have been through many changes with them. Change is generally made for the good of the company not for the employees and that is understandable. When every one of your employees disagree with the way you have decided to schedule blood drives and donor center hours there is an issue that needs to be addressed. Several years later and things just keep getting worse rather than better. If you are single, no kids or your kids are grown and you don't care about spending time with family/friends, this is a great job for you. Blood donors are amazing, you get to work with "customers" that are here because they want to be here helping the community. It's a beautiful thing. Employees are generally closer with each other than their families given the amount of time they have to spend together.

I traveled all over Indy and it was a very fun experience. The only thing that bothered me about the Blood Center in collections was there was no set schedule and they could call and change your clock in/out time at anytime of the day literally anytime. But it was overall a good place to work. I've learned a lot.

The training provided at the Indiana Blood Center is impeccable. You are provided a one-on-one trainer to work with you for at least a month while you learn the basics. This allows the new employee to feel very secure and knowledgeable in their position once they actually start to work on their own. The company also cross-trains after you have been in your position for awhile, so one can work in other departments when needed. The CEO is transparent and you actually get to meet him and speak with him within your first week of employment. Pay and work culture are excellent as well.

This job has been nothing but horrible !! I work in corporate & no one speaks, no one acts like they want to be here. It's just dry and miserable . The donors have horrible experiences. With being called at least 7 times a month not including emails and other advertisements. No room For growth ! do not waste your time working for this company. They do not care only floor that's clean is the 4th floor for the CEO !! No break rooms no cafe !
Blood Collections Driver/ Supervisor (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 27, 2017
Started out great but the longer you work their the more the problems start to surface. overall its pretty good but mostly due to the people who you work with the management sucks and so does the upper management.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 7, 2017
This is a great place to work if you can keep up with the crazy hours. Great staff and the donors that come in are amazing. You know that they arent there just to get sonething for free they are doing it for a good cause.
Best people you will ever work with. Not the best place to work without a STRONG support system.
Blood Collection (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 3, 2017
This company has a wonderful mission, you will never question what is your reason to walk into work each day. The work life balance is never on a fair scale. The hours are insane and if you have a STRONG support system you'll do great! The people that you work beside are just as dedicated and the team atmosphere is definatively there.
great mission, team work
short/ no breaks, long hours, never steady hours of work
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Muncie, IN – February 20, 2017
Overall I really enjoyed the job and the clients. Enjoyed setting up and supervising blood drives. The Management had no sympathy for people with disabilities like diabetes. Supervisors would get upset if a co-worker with diabetes had to take a break to get a drink or snack and would constantly complain about it. And, if a Manager didn't like a person they would do anything to downgrade and humiliate a person.
Poor morale, poor leadership, no work/life balance
Phlebotomy Technician (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 23, 2017
A typical day at work on mobiles consists of nothing typical! Everyday it is a different misery. You may be scheduled to work 4 am to 2pm and get off at 4pm instead. Then you may have less than 10 hours turn around before you have to head back in to work another cold grueling shift on some freezing bus or pull a cart with 500+lbs of equipment on it thru snow and up hills into a freezing auditorium for set up. You never have set shift. If you're a single parent you might as well forget about this job if you have to pick up at daycare by 6pm because management gives no cares about your personal life. You can work over your scheduled shift all week and then they jump down your throat when you're a few minutes late. The employees complain all day but are complacent and management has heard the same complaints for years now and have done nothing to correct the issues of work/life balance. All I can say is good luck and kiss your personal and family life good bye working on mobiles.
