The most enjoyable part of the job is the staff. Always a new process to implement, learn and train staff makes this job fun and exciting.
Assistant Laboratory Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 3, 2018
The company is great. The management needs to be changed. Employees are expected to perform additional task(s) as assigned for the good of the organization, department and team. Management message to employees is going above and beyond is their job. This makes for a low moral, unappreciated and disgruntle work environment.
Pros
The company is always reaching for growth and improvements.
Cons
Managment needs to appreciate employees

Interesting place to work
Training Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 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.
Pros
medium sized organization; most staff very personable
Cons
not much room for advancement

Apheresis Tech II (Former Employee) –  College Station, TXJuly 9, 2018
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.

Unjust management
N/A (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 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.
Pros
Pay, paid holidays.
Cons
Management, area coaches, HR department, co-workers.

Fun, but challenging place to work
Mobile Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 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.
Pros
Fun enviornment, amazing people, good pay
Cons
Long hours, hard on social life

There definitely was a big-brother vibe. They were always looking for information on the staff. But the staff, everyone one under management, were a delight. They were helpful, friendly, and kind.
Pros
Great people, great clients, great purpose.

Strange and mean managers. Like out of mean white girls!

Decline to answer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 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.
