Plebotomist (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – January 7, 2019
I enjoyed my time at BioLife for the most part. The pay is good, great benefits and if you are a good worker there are a ton of opportunities to promote. The management isn't great, and the work environment is unprofessional. It reminded me a lot of high school.
Advanced Senior Phlebotimist Care Technician (Former Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – January 8, 2019
The company benefits are great but the amount of work to pay is not great and as a phlebotomist it is under paid. Also, our lunch hours are always different every week and we would get breaks and sometime not get breaks. Its a very fast pace and long time on your feet no where to sit down and no time to get a drink of water or go to the bathroom some times.
Senior Plasma Center Tech (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, MI – January 4, 2019
I absolutely loved working for the team I worked with. We were like one big family. We worked great as a team and we did a lot for our community! The company treated us well, and compensated us accordingly. Always room for growth!
Fast-paced, high stress, and lack of organizational skills
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Douglasville, GA – January 4, 2019
Pros: with others always leaving there is room for advancement, benefits aren't overly priced
Cons: favouritism, have not received insurance cards since hired but paid since first filed (week into hire date), pay is horrible, management is lacking in many areas especially communition, never met HR department, rude IT, some of the staff need attitude adjustments, too many people being dictators even if it's not their role, unorganized training and trainers (because they think everyone can be a trainer which they can't), unorganized schedules and management, the donors are frustrated with the system, staff running over management, just smile and wave until this ship sinks, there is not work life balance unless you are one of the favorites.
Lead Tech (Current Employee) – Lacey, WA – December 10, 2018
Great foot in the door to getting experience with leadership and great values for working. Sometimes they have a hard time scheduling enough people and the day can get very chaotic. Inappropriate behavior and words are off limits and eveyone is held accountable.
Plasma Center Technician (Former Employee) – Saint George, UT – December 3, 2018
Because Biolife has to follow strict protocols the training can feel tedious, but the environment itself is a lot of fun. I always felt listened to and they always made an effort to work around my scheduling needs.
Plasma center technician (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – December 1, 2018
The benefits of this place supersede any other benefits of any company that I've ever known. The health insurance is absolutely amazing. There's a lot of teamwork that goes into the daily Grind. There's a lot of perks for working for this company. I do think they could pay better salary for the hard work and the immense expectations of yourself.

Our site manager was a very two-faced person, High turnover rate because of him and as to why they couldn't keep people
Rigid production job utilizing minimal nursing skills
Medical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Harrisonburg, VA – November 15, 2018
This was a production job in blood services. Very structured and rigid with SOP's. No advancement for nurses at this job - only utilized as MSS. Same routine daily of registering, screening and processing donors. MSS performed history and physicals on donors and cared for donors with reactions. Management was okay, but very unprofessional at times regarding confidentiality, improper language in staff meetings, etc. I definitely did not feel valued as a nurse at this job. Followed strict SOP's at all times and highly regulated. Very different from any other nursing job I have ever worked in my lengthy career. Constantly reminded by management that "This is not your typical nursing job."
PCT/Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Douglasville, GA – October 26, 2018
Great place to work. Lots of advancement opportunities. Very fast paced place. Every day you encounter something new all while doing the same exact thing every single day. This is a challenging place to work if you have young children and is enrolled in college. Overall great company to work for.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Maple Grove, Mn – October 13, 2018
Management was terrible. Immaturity was high and rude, behavior interferes with the work flow. Low low pay. I had to get food stamps to supplement for my family. Large employee turnover caused low moral and customer service. My advice is-there are so many other places to work Biolife shouldn’t be considered.
