Staffing Coordinator (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 16, 2015
Love working for South Texas Blood & Tissue Center. I've been with the company for almost 4 years now. The only issue is, I feel that I need more room to grow and I can no longer grow in the current position that I hold.
Accessioning Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 14, 2012
Enjoyed working here for the most part. Days were long. 16,18 hours a day long. My schedule was from 930a-730p. I never got out at 730. I did learn alot about blood and plasma and such, very interesting. Management was okay. Went through a few managers in a pretty short time but I think they were trying to find a good fit. Co-workers were okay as well. Some were really good while others were clearly there only to collect a a paycheck. Hardest part was the long hours. But because I enjoyed the work and most co-workers were great to work with, time managed to go by rather quick. Not a "hard" job by any means. You are mostly sitting at a computer for long periods of time so making time to get up and move is a must. Most enjoyable part is the experience. You learn alot and meet lots of people. I do miss working there :(
shift differentials; fun work environment; great learning experience
Tech 1 and Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 4, 2015
Typical day at work, set up the blood drives register, screen and draw blood. What I've learned? My phlebotomy skills have gotten better. I have better customer service. Management? Management is all over the place. My co-workers? They make my day better, its like a big family. Hardest part of my job? Maybe dealing with management. The most enjoyable part of my job is working somewhere different every day.
Donor Recruitment Consultant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 8, 2014
It's a shame that the lives of patients are in the hands of incompetent management that fosters an environment that works team members against each other. In addition, they blatantly make fun of their gay employees and make their lives complete hell should they decide to transfer to another department, internally. There were many times that I, personally, asked my direct supervisor to assist me in situations where I had co-workers that were rude, disruptive, and hostile and she did nothing at all--in fact, telling me to take care of it myself.
This is not a place that fosters growth or personal development.
said flexible schedule
horrible management, incompetent leadership, lack of training, lack of integrity
