A great place to work for the inspired individual
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Saginaw, MI – November 10, 2015
I have had an amazing experience with Michigan Blood so far, and I am reaching 5 years with the organization. Since beginning employment, my direct report managers have allowed so much flexibility in my schedule, I was able to complete my Bachelor's degree. They not only care about growth as a company, but also personal growth as well. For my department, I am responsible for controlling SOP insertion/removal, handling payroll, and updating staff metrics and demographics. I enjoy taking the creative freedom allowed to me to focus on process improvement opportunities. Wages are market-competitive, and health benefits are affordable for full-time employees. I would say that the most enjoyable aspect of my job is that I play a role in saving lives in my community. The hardest part of the job is implementing change. As with most companies, change does not always come easy to seasoned staff. Also, one of the biggest inter-organizational issues is the lack of communication between departments. This can sometimes result in confusion for our donors and staff. Overall, my position within the company has allowed me a lot of opportunity for personal growth, as well as impacting the organization. I would, and have recommended Michigan Blood as a place to work because I truly think it is a great place to work!
saving lives, performance-driven salary increases
lack of accountability, market changes
