Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) – Edison, NJ – April 12, 2016
There is a "list" of things people are supposed to do but as a new trainee you will be encourage to multi-task and perform things quickly and accurately with little help/ direction. Your work load changes every day and you end up doing someone else's work because they couldn't get around to it for a reason or another. START SLOW AND TAKE DETAILED NOTES! LEAVE PLENTY OF SPACE AND EXTRA PAGES BETWEEN TOPICS! This facility loves cross training and it's the worst experience as a new hire.
You can not be intelligent and work for this company because if you do not fit into their "ideal mold" you will be replaced quickly. If you think you have a good idea keep it to yourself because you get bet back lashed for suggestions, even if you're correct. Additionally this facility does not abide by ASTM or ISO standards even though they claim they do ( unless the donation is Australian )
The eating areas are undefined so in order to not get in trouble only eat in the cafeteria. There is a lot to learn in this line of work and a half decent company to work for and gain experience. I would not suggest staying at this place long because their promotion speech is not realistic and the correct people are not working in the positions they should be. If you like being held in a mold this is the perfect place for you; but if you are an ambitious person this place is not worth the headache.
Great paying job if you can handle all the bullying
triage Coordinator (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 3, 2016
I would rather get a colonoscopy than to work another day in that place. Narcotics get tossed around like they are tic tacs along with management coming in plastered. ..so yeah! Great job if you wanna score!...definitely put a bad taste in my mouth considering what they do. ...I officially changed from being an organ or tissue donor on my license...this company as a whole is fowl....just so the public knows..this company does not allow homosexual men to even donate their eyelashes. ....homosexual women and working girls however are good to go....
set up to fail if you don't fall in line with everyone else

Filling the gap until the next employer. I hear some departments are good but I haven't experienced this. President didn't even bother to get the correct pronunciation of an employee's name before honoring them during a meeting. Managers like to retaliate when behavior they receive a bad review.
Triage Coordinator (Former Employee) – Greenwood Village, CO – January 3, 2016
Working at Statline was the worst job I have had. The few employees that have stayed long term treat new hires horribly and although management states they want to hire Registered Nurses, the extremely low salary, poor training and lack of respect for them does not want to make them work or stay there; this is consistent with other RN's who stated with the company but did not stay. They have a rampant problem with poly substance abuse with their current workers which seems to be well known but once you pass the initial drug test, they never drug test again--they even allowed an employee who showed up drunk to stay employed--who does that and what does that say about them? Do not complain to HR which is in NJ as they will just sweep the issue under the rug and just get rid of you--retaliation is widespread. This company also dishonestly tells the OPO's they work for that many of their Triage Coordinators are RN's which is a lie--not one RN or at least one that ever stays. If you cannot make it anywhere else or fail out of nursing school numerous times then this is the place for you but realize it is a dead end job and if they don't like you, they will make you leave; either force you to quit or fire you!
Horrible "mom & pop" operation mentality & really bad management
• Aseptically process tissue while maintaining sterility of the clean rooms. • Operate bone mills and basic laboratory equipment. • Operate surgical machinery to prepare grafts for implantation. • Support and maintains supplies and equipment used in core production. • Perform quality checks on processed tissue and paperwork prior to release. • Collect water samples and surface samples in accordance with procedures. • Accurately measure, label and package tissue. • Perform all post-process functions including reconciliation, testing, inspecting and labeling.
This was a non-profit organization and a very rewarding place to work. Very professional and a lot of fun atmosphere. Management was very supportive and encouraging. Always there to offer assitance and training if needed. Everyone got along very well, like one big happy family. Only reason I left was due to relocation of the office resulted in a much longer commute.
A typical day at work is generally filled with investigations of customer complaints, training new employers, acting as system administration for the InfoMed Program. I have learned how to be a good public speaker, conduct good trainings. I also have project management opportunities that allow me to showcase my skills. The hardest part of the job is not having enough hours in a day to complete all tasks at times. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I am a single part of a large orgnaization that helps enhance the lives of our patients.
The environment is very busy for a typical day at work. You definitely have to learn how to deal with different managers, because you can work for more than one. Most of the people there are very supportive and are great to work with.
Company mission is to help other;They do not help employees!
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Jessup PA and Edison NJ – May 19, 2015
Management from top down is poor at best;Require management training at top level Leading Allograft company is deceitful with regulatory agencies, hence 483'S abound! There is no job security; the culture is everyone lives in fear of losing their job Good people do work hard but are not reimbursed by performance Headquarters in Edison makes all the decisions; They do not communicate with other facilities but takes them for granted Promises abound but are never executed Poor safety working conditions
Tissue Process Scientist (Current Employee) – Edison, NJ – May 10, 2015
Work in clean room with bunny suit is very exciting and I learned how to make Allograft from donor human body. Management is humble and kind because this foundation is non profit organization. Most of the workers are Physicians from different countries, all are well oriented and learned. The hardest part of work is taking synovial fluid from joint. The most enjoyable part of the job is reconciliation and quality check of paperwork according to GTP.
Good Comps & Benefits Micro management and 3rd grade mentality . shift bids constantly so work life balance is difficult. Management are bullies. great pay but not worth the extra bullying. Learned a lot about transplant & health diagnosis. rapid fire environment and no room for advancement or growth.
