Plasma Center Technician (Current Employee) – Anderson, SC – February 21, 2019
saw some things im not proud of. honestly just wait till a company buys them out before you work there. they play the blame game a lot. too muck back and forth with the managers. its like arguing with children honestly.

Nice company, starts up plasma centers and sells them to larger companies. Not that great for the money but if your looking for experience or advancement you can find it here, they'll train you and if you do well they'll promote you based on tangible results. no 401k but the possibilities are very real here, for a select few that make the cut.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Meridian, MS – February 7, 2019
The Meridian center has to be the absolute worst center with the worst management ever ! They pay is ok but the stress is not worth it . Management sucks , shows favoritism, and it’s very unprofessional and a unorganized environment! The donors are able to mistreat you and Nothing gets done about it ! Everything is he say she say there is no structure ! They work you like a dog and it’s not worth it . They are on the point system so even if u have a doctor excuse it still counts as a whole point ( which dosent fall off until 6 months) ..ur dealing with donors who are intoxicated or high about 80% of the time , there is no security there weekend off is never given unless ur favored by management ...it’s a very hostile work environment so Save your time and apply for anything else but this job , u will thank me later !

Great place to work if you are wanting to make a whole bunch of hours and have a good work ethic. It's all about what you make of it honestly.
I was able to pay off over $30,000 in student loans in two years just from working here because i worked so many hours. If the managers see you working hard and if you learn your craft well and show interest in growing, then they will cross train you, and then if you have good leadership skills, you will hopefully move up in the company. Aaaand they have to like you lol
Hardest Part: Company is focused heavily on getting their bottles so that they can meet their daily/weekly/monthly goal in comparison to the other centers in the area. Also, you're legitimately on your feet the. Entire. Day.
Most enjoyable part: If you are cross trained, you're never in the same place for more than an hour or two= an enjoyable day
Always opportunity for overtime, and possible travel with company
bad work/life balance. Im lucky I'm not married nor have any kids.
Phelbotomist (Current Employee) – High Point, NC – November 20, 2018
There’s no room for growth in this company! The insurance is trash, the PTO accumulative per pay period represents how the company really feel about their employees. Pay Subs get sign on bonuses and holiday day for more holidays then regular staff
Cut hours, poor management skills, no room for advancement nor growth, insurance sucks
Physician substitute (Former Employee) – Fort Pierce, FL – November 17, 2018
I was a phys sub there and they had me working like a dog. I was doing my job along with everyone elses. I could be doing my job then pulled to do another. So much room for error when done this way which is why i was let go. The place is very unorganized. The management sucks they play favoritism. Im over this place 7 people have quit since i started in april including two of my immediate co workers.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Fort Pierce, FL – November 6, 2018
Management cares more about sleeping with employees than about running a company. Extreme disregard for donor safety at all time. Long hours for little to no compensation. Very tasteless environment with zero professionalism.
Lpn (Former Employee) – Pennsylvania – November 2, 2018
This company is constantly advertising for positions. Several of my classmates and myself interviewed there and did not get a call back or a letter saying the position was filled etc. Cant believe they care about their company since they are still looking to fill the positions and didn’t bother to give any of us a chance. I wrote it off when it was just me but when several others applied and interviewed with no response that’s just inconsiderate.
DCT (Former Employee) – Florence, SC – October 31, 2018
The senior manager plays favoritism with employees that they know. Fraternization is at an all time high! The training is completely inadequate. The work schedules are done by totally inept individuals. The work load is not administered evenly. Senior management allows some of the employees to leave work early. While other employees are over worked, and over stressed. This is one of the worst work environments that I have ever experienced!
Needed a lot more structure and more management employees that know what’s going on.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Meridian, MS – October 31, 2018
I enjoyed most of my co-works but as far as immunotek as a an actual work place was not great! They ask you to way more work than you’re paid for! And I do not like how they want to play favorites and let certain people get away with things that normally anyone else would not get away with!
The managers are very unprofessional. They talk to you any kind of way. It's a job however it pays the bills. It's a lot of wolfs in sheep clothing. They don't care if you half dead, you got to come in. You don't have no life working here. To each it's own!!!!
Pays the bills
Management is not professional at all. Talks down to they employees
worker (Current Employee) – Anywhere, USA – October 17, 2018
This is not a bad place to work. I think management gets judged unfairly. The company teaches you how to run a plasma center not how to manage people. Management should come with those soft skills present and then you can get taught how to use those skills in the plasma environment. Workers do have long hours because of the industry demand. Instead of looking at it from a negative aspect, look at from the positive of saving lives through medications. I think that if you like the fact that you leave work everyday with the sense of saving lives and serving your community than its not a bad place to work!!!
Donors, Saving lives, Pto, overtime pay, closed on Sundays
Constant complaining staff members who just need to work and not complain so much
Cashier (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – October 4, 2018
This job is a notch above fast-food service and extremely similar to a manufacturing plant. In fact, a plasma donation center is considered a manufacturing facility and not a medical facility. The daily focus is on meeting or exceeding production numbers, and establishing a fully-functional center to sell off to another company. Career advancement is not realistic for most employees (a) because most don’t stay that long once they realize how the center operates and (b) because this is a favoritism heavy industry. People who probably shouldn’t be promoted are. It’s the norm for managers to be covered in tattoos and speak unprofessionally. Not equating one with the other but the two seem to coincide here a lot. Expect long hours, repetitive tasks, and a revolving door of new employees. I wasn’t even able to perform my job fully because it was so unorganized. I was spoken to rudely by management on several occasions . Also, the ratio of women to men is disproportionate and creates an environment of gossip and cliques. It’s not good at all.
Micromanagement, intense production focus, unorganized
