Productive workplace focused on giving our donors a satisfying donation process.
Telerecruiter (Current Employee), Alexandria, LAApril 16, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule, good hours
Cons: short breaks, scheduling is random (could work 10 hours one day and 5 the next), part time does not get insurance
A typical day at work included calling donors to notify them that they are eligible to donate blood again and telerecruiting, field recruiting at mobile and set up drives whiles standing in extreme weather conditions, and making posters to advertise said blood drives.
I learned that this job is important in trying to recruit donors to give blood because – more... we supply local hospitals with blood, plasma, and platelets for patients.
Management in my department were not very professional. An example of this would be if they wanted you to quit, they would begin to give you less hours until you decided to quit instead of confronting you directly about the problem.
Most of the coworkers were nice enough. Most of them have nothing better to do than gossip about someone. The staff is made up majority of women. There were maybe 5 or 6 males that worked in the entire center.
The hardest part of my job would have to be convincing donors to give blood.
The most enjoyable part would be traveling. It would be a good day when you're with a team you like and you make projection. – less

Productive and demanding
Product Management/Hospital Services (Former Employee), Shreveport, LAMarch 25, 2014
Pros: healthcare, vacation time
Very busy on a daily basis. Making sure products are available to serve hospitals and other blood centers in a timely manner daily. management is decent and somewhat supportive. Co-workers are friendly and hard working. Hardest part of the job is the keeping up with demands for certain blood products, due to low donations on a particular blood type. – more... Most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you help to save lives on a daily basis. – less

Lack of organization
Donor Recruiter (Current Employee), Lake Charles, LAOctober 16, 2013
Organization is very "top heavy". They do not pay their hard workers a competitive salary. Many disgruntled employees.

Rewarding Job, but HORRIBLE Management
Recruiter (Former Employee), Shreveport, LAJanuary 14, 2013
Pros: helping the community.
Cons: management has unrealistic expectations, they are quick to discipline employees, but never reward them, no room for growth/advancement
This job can be very rewarding, but the stress isn't worth the pay. The requirements and job description change weekly. You're called "salary," but if you miss time during the week, you'll be docked. It doesn't matter if you work Saturday and Sunday, 40+ hours, if you miss a M-F day, they'll take 8 hours of your PTO time. Management will remind you – more... often that "you're salary" you work until the job gets done, but you won't find any of the managers out on the weekend or after-hours working blood drives or trying to bring in the units. Don't plan on having a life outside of LifeShare, because they expect you to work 7 days a week. Management acknowledges that there are not enough accounts to bring in the monthly amount of required units of blood, but will chew you out if you don't get the required 470 units!! – less

Management is frequently verbally abusive to employees in front of coworkers. Not all employees are held to the same standards. Management definitely has unrealistic expections, often assumes without obtaining facts, and blatantly shows favoritism. Good benefits but high stress, and not worth the pay.

Nonprofit organization solely responsible for providing quality blood and blood components
