Nurse (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – May 19, 2018
but unfortunately, every clinic is it's own kingdom. Mine was very, very young and uber religious. I did not fit in to the culture and was shunned. I also had a college degree and children. Again, it made me a total outcast. Great place to work if you're under 23 with no college or life experience, but if you're any older you'll be a pariah.
Donor Center Technician (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 18, 2018
It honestly is a great place to work. The pay and benefits are fair. Management is great. They truly honor their open door policy. But the hours are hard. The center is open from 6am-8pm almost every day and if you have young kids those kinds of hours are hard. Scheduling is a little difficult with so many moving pieces and it makes room for a lot of inconsistency. Aside from that I have no complaints.
It Deputy Director (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – May 12, 2018
There are a lot to do, you are always so busy but you don’t have a chance to take decisions due in IT all the Senior Directors are located in Spain and there is where they all handling almost everything
Very poor management. Large turnover due to poor management. And it will only go down hill from there. AM talks to donors as if they were nothing. Training coordinator is disrespectful to staff and donors. Corporate needs to come in undercover unbeknowst to management.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Van Nuys, CA – May 9, 2018
Extremely stressful workplace, donors would constantly talk down and demean the nurses, forced to stay overtime even when burnt out, poor pto first year of employment, only 4 days of sick time in a year because of the 10 hour shifts. Management only cares about numbers and the workplace feels like slave labor. Raises are minimal as well. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone!!
Benefits and coworkers
Management, stress, poor organization between donor to nurse ratio, verbal abuse from donors, poor pto
Management really needs improving. A lot of unfairness A lot of confusion I wouldn’t recommend anyone to this job You can ask multiple people from management one question and you wil never get the same answer.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – April 27, 2018
Great place to work as far as benefits and payroll. The employees are not always professional and management will blow things off. If you can deal well with stressful environment you may enjoy this job, it can be made into a career easily. Just stay to yourself and come to do your job.
Center Medical Specialist (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – April 18, 2018
The money was great but when you work over 100 hours per pay period, you are too tired to spend it. The rules change constantly regarding the quality of donors. One minute they don't take homeless people or people who have been in jail recently but when we would tell them about personal knowledge of homeless or previously incarcerated donors we were berated and accused of "fishing". The turnover rate is high because you are not treated with respect, and again, the hours are horrible! But, if you don't have a family and want to live at work, GO FOR IT!!!!
Hours are not good schedule is made on a weekly basis so you cant plan for anything Training is horrible and often demeaning. employee safety is last thing on the Administrators mind Have been told not to call the police when clearly that is what should have been done
Employee (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – April 7, 2018
Great company to work for, lots of advancement opportunity. Can get very clicky, and immature (from top to bottom). Overall a good place a good place to work with good people. Most donors are nice but a few are difficult.
Line staff (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 5, 2018
The company in general has a lot of opportunity to build a career. This particular center was the exact opposite. Advancements were based on if you were liked by the right person in management. I watched hard working employees get overlooked for opportunities and black balled for no reason simply because they weren't apart of the "favs". I also realized that organization and consistency was basically absent.. I loved the job but management alone was the reason I left the facility. I hope corporate realizes who the real issue is because they will constantly loose good workers if they don't.
The job itself isn't bad, it can get very busy when we are understaffed .I love phlebotomy but I did not like working with the machines. Toward the end one of the managers was rude which is why i left .
