They claim this job is "fast-paced" and "exciting," but those are just words to cover up how exhausting this job usually is. We get paid below the poverty line, we are over-worked, and raises are given late, if you ever get yours. Job security is fine if you're lower-level because the turnover rate is so high, they're happy if you just show up to work. Many of my coworkers have just walked out of their shift before due to the work culture here. Lots of gossiping, gang behavior, mistrust, etc. Most managers are incompetent, fail to communicate with lower level employees/each other properly, lick the boots of corporate, consistently fail to advocate for their employees, and have lately seemed to find any reason to terminate/push employees to quit during the pandemic (probably due to lower production = financial hardship for company). Lastly, employees had to beg management to even be able to wear masks (much less be PROVIDED one) or receive additional PPE when the pandemic initially started because we were told by our center manager (verbatim) that they "don't work." What kept me there for so long is the end goal of plasma donation-- the plasma collected goes to people who really do need it. But not much else, it's hard to see the end goal of your efforts. If you're looking for a job between career paths or you're still in college, work here. If you actually have financial obligations and want to keep your skin looking young and healthy, there are plenty of other places to work. Love yourself.
