Training Specialist (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 19, 2018
I worked as a training Specialist. It is a mid-sized organization composed of several facilities located through-out the greater Houston area. The position consisted of developing and facilitating training for new hires and incumbents, so I was able to interact with employees from many different departments. The company encourages comradery among the departments. Overall, most staff are very open and friendly and the executives foster a culture of cohesiveness.
medium sized organization; most staff very personable

Ok, environment to work with same great people. However, can be very stressful and requires a lot of work. You have to work long hours, travel, and weekends if scheduled. Setup and then unpack equipment plus drive to different areas.
N/A (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 10, 2018
The job itself was easy if you're good at memorizing SOPs. The upper management will pretend to care but they don't, a lot of backstabbing be careful who you make friends with. You don't matter to them even if you're good at phlebotomy and you have a great attendance. They will smile to your face and turn around and stab you in the back.
Pay, paid holidays.
Management, area coaches, HR department, co-workers.
Great mission. Good place to work. Great co-workers
Director, Education & Training (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 3, 2018
The organization has a great training department and multiple opportunities to grow and develop. They frequently promote from within. The mission of the organization is the best. You go to work everyday knowing that you are saving lives.
Mobile Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 23, 2018
Great company with amazing employees and top class training. You will be very well trained and have a lot of fun. The pay is great for entry level phlebotomists, and there is a lot of opportunity for overtime.
However, the hours will drain you. Working every Sunday can be very tiring, as well at going to work as early as 4am.
Decline to answer (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 13, 2018
Can be a challenge with multiple projects each one champions by a group that thinks all others are less important. The organization is only partly down the road of developing stronger Project Management processes overall. Still a leader in many other areas of the blood banking industry.
PHLEBOTOMIST (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – December 23, 2017
In general, the amount of lazy/ bad attitude/ unhappy coworkers combined with constant workload additions (without pay additions) makes it a dreadful place to go. My specific manager is great, but that doesn't change the people I work with regularly.
If you dont mind working long hours this is the place for you. Mobile department is chaotic and management is poor. Admin does not like to award your time off and they speak to you in an insulting tone when you disagree
