Hours
Mobile Phlebotomist (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 15, 2018
Good job to learn from. Hours are never the same day by day, having a family is hard with this company. The people you work with will become your family though. Management is not very good and it's difficult to move up unless you're a favorite.

Love the people I work with
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) –  Paducah, KYAugust 15, 2018
The work environment is good because of the people that i work with. There has been a lot of changes at my job that I don't agree with but I do think that the people that are over me are trying their best to make the Red Cross a better Company.

too much restructuring
GRANTS MANAGEMENT (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 15, 2018
The American Red Cross was a bit of a disappointment. Although staff were professional and friendly, the overall mission very motivating and there was the ability to work remotely, there was too much restructuring!
Pros
great staff
Cons
too much restructuring

Great humanitarian organization however brutal to their own employees. No work/life balance. Top heavy organization with very little consideration of the feet on the street.

Good place to get experience and find something better
Mobile Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Novi, MIAugust 15, 2018
SEM is a joke, ran by management that dont care about you. The scheduler lives no where near Detroit or Novi and she schedules you so far to drive. They say they keep you within 30 miles of your home that's LIES. They also get you in saying they are transitioning to you driving their transit Van's which also is a LIE.
Again it's a good place to get experience and find better. No appreciation to the good employees.
Pros
Good experience to get and get out and find better
Cons
No gas/mileage reimbursement. Driving 55+ miles 1 way a day

Pros
there are no pros
Cons
I cant list them all here.

Project Management Intern, Disaster Services (Former Employee) –  Fairfield, NJAugust 14, 2018
very Interesting, Last summer I was an intern at American Red Cross where I worked on a project to set up fire alarms in three cities in New Jersey where I strategized plans to increase efficiency by deciding the optimal number of teams and hours required and discussed with organizations the funds required for the project.

Worst job ever
Collections Specialist (Former Employee) –  Manchester, NHAugust 13, 2018
Leaving ARC was the best decision ever. The management especially MJ at the Manchester NH is by far the rudest demeaning individual ever. The scheduler does not care. You could request days off months in advance and still not get them off.
This is a money making company nothing to do with saving any lives. Only people being saved are the higher ups with their 6 figure incomes. No life- work balance. Staff is treated like pawns just another piece to move. Great co workers.
Pros
Lunch breaks
Cons
Long hours, lousy work schedule

You do not want to work here
Service Agent I (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCAugust 13, 2018
There is limited opportunity for advancement down on Forest Point Circle. The work culture is terrible and some the supervisors and floor manager are thieves. They promise incentives and overtime for extra hours worked and I have NEVER received payment for it. They keep lying about pay date. Do yourself a favor and don’t work for this company.They can’t keep employees because of horrible work culture and management.HR is also of no help.
Cons
Attendance, pay, work culture, management, Hr, unprofessional
