A challenging job with great people that enables me to work with the public on a daily basis
Blood Collection Specialist / MA Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Tukwila, WashingtonJune 13, 2014
My typical day at work includes preparing our equipment for loading to our truck and traveling to our location. Once at our location for the day, we unload our equipment to be set up on site.

I get work with co-workers that are great at their job and are fun to be around. They take their job seriously but are able to enjoy their day and make the experience – more... pleasurable to the donors.

The hardest part of this job is the loading and unloading of our equipment on a daily basis. The equipment is extremely heavy and some sites are harder to navigate than others.

The management generally backs the technicians on all fronts. It is only rarely that this does not happen. – less

Do not work in Blood Collection Services
Phlebotomist/ Technician (Current Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 16, 2013
Pros: days off
Cons: too many to list
This place used to be a great place to work.No more. I have worked here more than 5 years now. The good news? The donors are wonderful, giving people who believe in the donation of blood to help others! Good for them! Great donors! The volunteers are wonderful by giving their time for a worthy mission! The bad news? Management (or lack of). Poor leadership, – more... self serving, disorganized, reactive, arbitrary, unfair and basically don't give a darn about employee retention or employee satisfaction. High turnover for Techs. HR a joke. (Don't even go to them). If you want experience in Phlebotomy, work there for a short time and then get out while you can. Benefits? Very poor. Especially health care. Low pay. This place needs to be union to protect the rights of its workers. Here there are no protections for the worker. Seek employment elsewhere. – less

this company doesn't care about its workers
PHLEBOTOMIST (Current Employee), Seattle, WAJuly 28, 2013
Pros: better than average benefits
Cons: nearly impossible to get days off, lucky to get consecutive days off, hr & management poor
Morale among the worker bees is poor. We rarely get thanked. It's very difficult to get days off. Schedule is irregular, unpredictable. I would not recommend employment with this company.

Good Mission, Great Employees, Horrible Leadership
Full-Time Employee (Former Employee), SeattleMarch 21, 2013
As recently as five years ago, this place was an unbelievable organization to work for. It's unfortunate that inexperienced leadership has turned this company upside down so quickly.

Pros: autonomy and great co-workers
The best job I have ever had. I was given many tasks with a high level of autonomy. I provided assistance to the supervisors and technologists that allowed them more time to concentrate on their bench duties and paperwork.
