Volunteer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 1, 2018
I would walk inside the location, sign in, and set-up NYBC's signs, and organize the papers that the donors have to fill out. I learned that when people donate blood they should eat a snack and drink water and/or juice. The hardest part of the job was when someone would faint after donating blood. But the best part was definitely seeing how happy all of the donors were after donating blood.

QC Reference Lab Lead Technologist (Current Employee) – Long Island City, NY – October 9, 2017
Excellent company with great employee benefits and friendly environment at all times. Had the opportunity to work under stressful and difficult situations but coworkers always put in extra time and effort and we were able to accomplish our work. I am treated fairly by management and given the flexibility of working hours.
Blood Aphaeresis Specialist (Former Employee) – Westbury, NY – October 1, 2017
The set up team would do an excellent job at preparing the site. My colleagues and I would work together to deliver the best possible care to our patients. We would help support each other , step in when need be, and also delegate if we were unable to help. Our days were about 8 hours give or take and we usually stayed after to make sure everything was put away.and ready for next day use.
Different Locations, working with others, direct patient contact
Mild paced atmosphere with the advantage of learning, not just performing.
Research Assistant III (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 15, 2017
Exposure to new lab techniques and the room to learn new procedures is evident. For the most part, the lab position is mild paced except during report submission time. This isn't any 9-5 position, but it still demands for work to be done in a timely manner. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at this company.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Westbury, NY – September 5, 2017
I enjoyed working for the blood center but after 6 months probation two days prior management decides to release you from your position for no apparent reason no explanation, possible discrimination because of my higher education compared to others upper management team needs to be revamped immediately
Management team shows favoritism and possible discrimination
Perioperative Autotransfusion Technician (Current Employee) – Elmsford, NY – August 15, 2017
The job has pros and cons like any other job. They provice transportation, sick time and vacation time. You meet and interact with many people in the health care field. You get to see how several hospitals all over operate.
Cons are you could potentially get stuck working 14hrs with no relief or time for lunch. You are not compensated for your travel time.
