Volunteer Call Center (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 2, 2018
Performed review and scheduling of clients for future blood drives. Staff was always available for help with calls I encountered that required more experience.
Very flexible hours for volunteer position that I held.
I really enjoyed working at the Blood Center of Wisconsin, because the staff and employees provided such professional care to the customers and me I and would like to work there as a paid employee if given the opportunity.
Research Technologist I (Former Employee) – Wauwatosa, WI – February 9, 2018
Because I worked in the lab, my hours were flexible and the benefits (ie. health care, dental etc) were very good. They switched to a time-clock system where you have to physically punch in and out which was a major disappointment and definitely contributed to me leaving. Working in the lab meant I got paid through grants which don't leave a whole lot of room for growth of salary based on merit or how long you have been with the company.
Overall a great place to work up until they started micromanaging out time-clocks.
only would reccomend someone to work here to get a referral bonus
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – February 8, 2018
needs new management. work you like a slave. i would say 90% percent of the people that works in blood collections is not happy working there, FACTS. they only time i would recommend someone to work there is to get a 500 dollar referral bonus.
10- 15 minute breaks. crazy hours . management is garbage. you do more than your responsibilities.
The BloodCenter was a educational and busy place to work,
Client Services Representative (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 13, 2018
A typical day at the BloodCenter started off busy and ended busy. It is an educational facility so learning about blood processing and donations and what happens to the blood once it is donated was part a learning experience.
The BloodCenter management was very dedicated and took saving lives of those in need seriously. All BloodCenter staff believed in the work that was done because it was important in saving lives,
All in all the BloodCenter was a nice place to work, Every day could be a stressful day because of the type of work and what was expected of this organization, which also made it an enjoyable day because of the outcome.
Donor services (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 12, 2018
To many bosses who don't know what they are doing. New managers who think they know it all, and know very little. No support from HR. You are hired for one position but are expected to be trained in multiple positions whether you want to or not. Then not compensated.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Greenfield, WI – December 28, 2017
I love my job the current management has their 'favorites' and are harassing and unfair to the others. I did phlebotomy and medical interviewing which involved taking pulse, blood pressure, temperature and a finger stick to determine hemoglobin level.
Student Worker (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 17, 2017
Nice place to work. On a daily basis I did a lot of administrative work. The people that I worked with were extremely knowledgeable. I learned a lot about operating biomolecular assays through shadowing technicians. .
Donor Services Volunteer (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 20, 2017
As a volunteer there are many benefits that allow you to learn about some of the procedures in blood donation and collection. There is many opportunities to meat new people and develop connects for the future.
Digital Designer (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – November 16, 2017
Once I stepped in the door my first day, I knew this job was different. I could tell people had a different attitude and I truly believe it was because everyone was working for a common cause - saving lives.
middle management (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – September 25, 2017
You work hard, and see the management mistakes, but no one listens. There is no work life balance, you are treated like a machine. They hire production managers who have no healthcare experience and won't listen to the staff that see where the problems are.
