Typical day includes screening current donors and determining new donor suitability. Take vital signs, give info as requested, input numbers into system, repeat. Very repetitive but great to get the handle of things and nice to know expectations for every shift. Management is wonderful with working with your availability and any personal issues you need to bring to their attention. The workplace culture is definitely familial and it is nice to know you're all trying to work as a team. The most enjoyable part is talking to donors and getting to know regulars. The hardest part would be difficult donors and 10 hour shifts, but it's nice to have the option to do four 10s. You have to work at least one weekend shift every week. Benefits aren't bad when you're able to move to full time. Overall one of my most favorite places to work with clear room to advance if you want to.
