Team Lead (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – May 7, 2018
I loved my job and doing what we did and the reasons why. The company prided themselves on customer service and made the staff did too. Being with Michigan Blood did make it hard for a work life balance since the hours are all over the place.
Blood Operations Scheduler (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – June 18, 2018
Excellent place to work at. Great management and friendly environment. I learned the program Hemasphere for scheduling staff for the State of Michigan. Hardest part of the job is to utilize problem solving skills in scheduling staff for the State of Michigan and being flexible with multiple employee's availability. The most enjoyable part of the job is the staff in my department and management.
Donor Relations Specialist (Current Employee) – Traverse City, MI – January 23, 2018
The company and the work place atmosphere are very uplifting and motivating. No matter what department you work in, the end goal of everyone's job is to help save lives and it's a great feeling knowing you are able to help with that everyday.
Positive/effective feedback from managers, strong team environment, innovative work, collaboration on projects with other departments, friendly co-workers, positive atmosphere all around
Donor Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – December 18, 2017
Feast or Famine, Hard to get enough hours to make ends meet, then so many hours you can keep up. Not enough full time employee positions offered to keep employees happy and keep them for the long haul.
Lab (Current Employee) – Saginaw, MI – September 4, 2017
I've worked here for a few years now. I've noticed quite a few comments from disgruntled former employees. While there may be some truth, it is greatly over exaggerated. There are areas for improvement, but it is like that at every other job as well. The industry itself has been and will continue to change, that is the way it is. Daily activities can be a bit repetitive, but seek out a challenge and make the best of it.
Pay, benefits, vacation, mission
Can be repetitive, need to maintain a vast amount of knowledge, evolving industry, management is hit or miss, work load is inconsistent
Restock and Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – May 12, 2017
If you're looking for a company to grow in, this is definitely not the one. Favoritism is a big key in this company. Managers are unprofessional. You trained yourself and if you make a mistakes, that's when the managers will reach out to talk to you. Other than that, they don't reward you and avoid talking to you. Even if you're face to face with them. Pay wasn't enough for the job task. Be careful if you decide to get a job here.
testing and Q.A. coordinator (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – April 30, 2017
Versiti is a good company. Unfortunately, they acquired a company in Michigan Blood that is in dire need of new supervisors. The supervisors of the Lab in particular are unprofessional in their conduct toward the workers under them. Threats are the norm.
Screener II & Charge Person (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – January 30, 2017
A day could be very busy. Always rewarding. Learned new rules and regulations to keep safety awareness renewed. Learned to work well with others, enjoy the new information you learn about the donors and their lives. Try to keep a steady and fast pace to keep the total process moving smoothly. Just knowing your busy day keeps people alive.
Cookies and juice
long drives, early hours, not sure what time your day might end.
Long-time employee (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – December 27, 2016
I worked for this company for 10 years. For many years this was an amazing company to work for but things have changed. Management no longer listens to their employees. If you're looking for a job just for a paycheck this is the place for you, but if you're looking for a job where you look forward to going to work every day I would look elsewhere.
