Team Lead/ Quality Member (Current Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – July 3, 2018
A typical day at work can vary. Some days it's super mellow and other days it's crazy. Managers are up and down. Some can be super helpful and others can be super lazy. The hardest part of the job is dealing with employees that act like teenagers. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that you and your team have worked together to ensure that your product is of perfect quality.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Augusta, GA – May 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.
Working for Biotest has been one the greatest pleasures in my career. I have learned quite a lot from all employees. You work with them in close proximity day in and day out and the friendships made are really great.
Reception (Former Employee) – Royal Palm Beach, FL – April 30, 2018
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
Corporate putting their nose where it really doesn't belong let managers handle
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.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Conway, AR – March 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.
They give you all the trainig and tools before holding you accountable for the pace you keep because the demand for face pace and precision but overall it was a very nice experience and oppurtunity to be giving.
Biomedical Technician Team Lead (Former Employee) – Conway, AR – February 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.
good experience for medical industry part-time
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, GA – January 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.
shorts breaks, short lunches. Long work hours without a decent cut off time and no set shifts
Phelbotomist (Former Employee) – Youngstown, OH – January 23, 2018
Management is the worst. Center manager has no clue what is going on. He just collectes a pay check every two weeks . Quality department is ran by a alcoholic what disrespects employees all the time. Way to much favoritism.
Phlebotomist and Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – January 10, 2018
A very dynamic and varied work and very variable every day with content of new work the center was specializing in experiments with the blood where the plasma was taken for a human vaccine for this reason the company was taken and left without work
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 7, 2018
I worked there for about a year employees are not valued but it's a great place to get your experience and move on random schedule working 12-hour shifts 5 to 6 days a week not good for having children or going to school.
