Extremely Long Hours
Blood Collections Team & Acting Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Fishers, INNovember 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.
Pros
More hours than you could ever want
Cons
Work/Life Balance.

use to be a good place
Blood Collection Technician (Current Employee) –  indpls, INNovember 2, 2017
As far as employees are concerned total lack of caring for them. They have favoritism in abundance there. And even Racism. Bulling Is overlooked. No one trains the same.
Pros
work with a unique group of people
Cons
no work life balance, bullying allowed, wrongful pay cuts, constant working short staffed.

Always traveling
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Muncie, INSeptember 30, 2017
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.
Pros
Great pay and some places would feed you.
Cons
Long work hours and short turn around.

Great mission/Poor management and Administration
Blood Collection Technician (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 17, 2017
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.
Pros
Great Mission, Excellent Coworkers
Cons
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, INSeptember 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.
Pros
knowledge that your work saves lives, meaningful job
Cons
long hours no set schedule

Helping the community one donation at a time
Phlebotomist /Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 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.
Pros
wages
Cons
scheduling

HLA/DNA Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 28, 2017
A very fast career. Co-worker and supervisors are very knowledgeable. Hardest part is the work/life balance. The hours can be crazy and hard to manage.

travel all over Indy
Phlebotomist Technician (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 30, 2017
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.
Pros
decent pay, traveling, growth
Cons
no set schedule

Not very many complaints
Production Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 30, 2017
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.
Pros
too many to list
Cons
management can be a bit two-faced

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

Best people you will ever work with. Not the best place to work without a STRONG support system.
Blood Collection (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INApril 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.
Pros
great mission, team work
Cons
short/ no breaks, long hours, never steady hours of work

Good place to work. Great training program.
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Muncie, INFebruary 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.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
Poor Management team

Poor morale, poor leadership, no work/life balance
Phlebotomy Technician (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 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.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything
