Productive high pace work environment
Blood Operations Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Saginaw, MIJune 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.
Pros
management, employee appreciation

Like working in high school again
Donor Center Technician (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIApril 16, 2018
It doesn't matter what your skill level is, if you don't fit in the "clique", they will try to get you fired.
The worst part? Management goes right along with it.
Pros
Love the mission
Cons
Drama, lack of management back up

Long hours to work
Donor Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIDecember 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.

Horrible place to work! My direct manager was horrible! Inconsistent, unsupportive, played favorites, brought out the worst in everyone. Not a good environment.

Not as bad as some people make it out to be
Lab (Current Employee) –  Saginaw, MISeptember 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.
Pros
Pay, benefits, vacation, mission
Cons
Can be repetitive, need to maintain a vast amount of knowledge, evolving industry, management is hit or miss, work load is inconsistent

They made it easy for volunteers to pick what positions they wanted to work. Also, the employees were always easy going and appreciative to the volunteers.

Poor management
Restock and Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) –  Saginaw, MIMay 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.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Managers, job task

a company in need of supervisory review.
testing and Q.A. coordinator (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIApril 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.

Too much in fighting
Donor Care Services Associate (Former Employee) –  Portage, MIFebruary 6, 2017
It seems that you always have groups within the company that have competing goals and therefore they butt heads often and don't often resolve issues without a struggle.
Cons
No regard for your personal schedule. Scheduling is a nightmare.

Very needed service and rewarding work
Screener II & Charge Person (Former Employee) –  Saginaw, MIJanuary 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.
Pros
Cookies and juice
Cons
long drives, early hours, not sure what time your day might end.

Company has changed and not in a good way.
Long-time employee (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIDecember 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.
Pros
Saving lives, good co-workers
Cons
Everything else
