dead end place that stifiles initiotive and sets it up for managers to disregard sop in favor of what every they want
Component lab tech (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – July 10, 2018
The work is either very busy, or dead The lab gets blamed for everything, so when we are not given the products we are still expected to send it out and find work when there is nothing. initiative and learning are repressed and seen as insubordination, the pay is awful for the importance of the work, and the atmosphere is dreadful.
Bus Driver/Register Donors (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA 93722 – March 23, 2018
Everyone at the Central California Blood Center are hard working. The work is gratifying but the pay scale is terrible. It is even more disappointing when the CEO of the company is making approximately a half million dollars a year, but pays his employees poorly or at minimum wage.
You meet some very nice people, they are dedeicated to their job, and strive to do the very best job possible.

At the blood center I called all the previous donors and basically asked them to come back in to donate or let them know if there was a blood drive anywhere near them so they could come in and donate. The hardest part about this job was getting them to come in and donate. Id make about 200 calls a day and by the end of the week maybe only 20 people would come in.

The laboratory at the Central California Blood Center taught the most important idea of teamwork, balancing individual skills to achieve high levels of efficiency and effectiveness to finish each day's workload.

overall a great place to work. Only down side is the hourly wage isn't the greatest. The staff and management are wonderful, very friendly and professional. Most definitely room to grow and advance. A great organization overall.
Donor Services Specialist Phlebotomist I (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – July 5, 2015
I work variable shifts within the Central Valley area. In the Donor Services Department, I interact with donors providing customer service while performing phlebotomies with minimum donor complaints and minimum number of technically unusable blood and its components.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – September 2, 2014
Most blood drives are very busy and take time to set-up. As a team we setup and tear down the drive. After we set up we get donors coming to donate so we register and screen them, then we draw their blood and let them relax also get drinks and snacks after. Then after the blood drive we head back to our main center and take the blood back to our Lab were it is processed and then shipped out to the hospitals that are in need of it in the central valley.
great co-workers, staff has fun, easy work, always new place everyday.
short breaks and lunches, out in the heat or cold when on drives.
CMA/Coordinator of Special Donations (Former Employee) – Fresno, California – August 16, 2012
My typical day at work was rewarding and I got to achieve many things that I thought I could not do.I learned how to be patient and how to manage a department with no supervision. I learned how to be a team player with my co-workers and to learn from each other. The hardest part of my job is when I lost a patient,but the most enjoyable part of my job was when I helped my patients with what they needed and that they survived or recovered completely. I really liked my job at the Blood center because I know that I worked hard for my patients and I gave it 110% of my time. I learned so much from the nurses,supervisors,and other co-workers.
