Poor management and lack of adequate leadership
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) –  Augusta, GAMay 19, 2018
Scheduling is done every week on Thursday the week before without any consistency. The culture is such that at least 1/3 of the staff calls out every day. They are always short staffed because they refuse to hire adequate an number of staff members. Management rarely ever helps unless the head manager is in. SOP is rarely ever followed. Phlebotomists are overbooked regularly. When donors are disrespectful management never reprimands them and never discourages the behavior. Overtime is never available. Management will actually cut staff prior to overtime even at the detriment of the current staff workload.

I worked for several yrs for this company in south florida..started out very good when it first opened..too much interference from corporate to make it a good place to work since it opened there have been many managerial changes biggest distraction in that company is Corporate if they don't like you , you are out corporate should only worry whether or not the job is being done and being done well

Cons
Corporate putting their nose where it really doesn't belong let managers handle

Hard work with difficult hours
Biomedical Technician (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEApril 17, 2018
Part-time employees will end up with 8 hour weekend shifts every week with little flexibility. Other shifts are generally four to five hours starting from as early as 6 am and ending as late as 9 pm.

Medical Position
Biomedical Technician (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLApril 2, 2018
Overall great place. Just wish the pay was more competitive being a medical position. Hardly covers cost of living in the Orlando area especially. I'm assuming that's why they have so many students working there because some of most may have some of their bills still covered by their families.

Decent place to work if it had better management
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Conway, ARMarch 29, 2018
If looking for a job , i has decent starting pay and easy work. There are very few promotions. Once you reach a level it take a long time to make the next level, unless your in good with management. Its a very bias place to work and there is quite a bit of favoritism for some employees.. if looking for a job, good place to start , if your looking for a career keep looking.

Stressful, crazy hours
Biomedical Technician Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Conway, ARFebruary 19, 2018
The schedule is insane, and you only know when you're working a week to two weeks in advance. Management in my experience was unfair and biased. Breaks are not guaranteed. Chances for advancement are poor and limited. You will work weekends. Very stressful and fast-paced. Always shorthanded. High turnover. I would only recommend this job to a student looking for good experience in the medical industry. The pay is decent for a part-time student, but this is not a family oriented place for a full-time person looking for a career.
Pros
good experience for medical industry part-time
Cons
crazy schedule, long hours, weekends, poor advancement opportunities

job was very high strung and stressful which made it unpleaseant to work under management and supervisors also due to favortism and unfair practices.
Biomedical Technician (Former Employee) –  Augusta, GAJanuary 31, 2018
I would never work under this company for the reason cooperate never saw a problem amd the fact we had high turn over rate. Hey were unfair with hours and days off as well as the time we were there and closed as if we didn't have a life outside of that place as well as supervisor were allowed to get away with so much even being lazy at many points and allowed to say whatever. I feel i worked in a very hostile environment and dressed going to work. Its very stressful to work there. Amd the fact they had a no sick policy and didn't care of you were sick or not burning up with a fever or even coughing uncontrollably all over other including donors only that was important was them processing them bottles and the fact that ur body was there to help not at all concerned about your health or others ams the germs you are passing. Complete selfish company and people over all.
Pros
Ok benefits
Cons
shorts breaks, short lunches. Long work hours without a decent cut off time and no set shifts

No comment to lack of knowledge of the newly acquired company. I was let go due to company restructuring and budget cut when the company was being sold.
