DONOR FLOOR TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 14, 2018
Typical day at work for a Donor Floor Technician consists of setting up donor stations and disconnecting donors at the end of the plasma donation process along with routine building cleaning/maintenance. The job is repetitive regardless of which position you are performing, so it becomes tedious and boring. Hours can be long since they seem to have a high turnover rate and are understaffed. If you want a job that doesn't require strenuous thinking and are okay working until 8:30 pm or 9pm , 7 days a week with little to no chance of advancement then this is the place to go to.

I really did used to like working here, but changes in management and a lack of qualified staff created a hostile work environment. The donor floor has a lot of amazing staff that are very talented phlebs, but a few people do the job of many. Management doesn't care about their employees. Staff don't get breaks and are told "they aren't guaranteed." Schedules are sporadic, and there's absolutely NO overtime. Coworkers are lazy and receive no repercussions for quite literally hiding.
The only good thing about this place is the pay. Management treats you like you are a bother to them and doesn't respect you. The job itself isnt bad if you can deal with poor management and payroll issues all of the time.

Your coworkers will be like friends but management is always disorganized and the center director only cares about reaching quotas. Not matter if you didn’t get your break or haven’t had lunch yet but you’ve been on your feet for 6 hours and he will just come out and yell at you because your not working fast enough.
There is none
No over time, no pray raise above 10 cents a year. Pay is a joke

I enjoyed working there prior to this last year when I learned that I was working for less pay than what the new people were making. Also the management was very selective in who he let do what I put 6 years in that company and was not given the respect that was needed and deserved.

This company is very stressful to work at and we are all underpaid! They want you to work your butt off and only give you a pat on the back and say “good job”. This center itself is a horrible set up and they require you to walk up and down the stairs with stock all day long carrying bins. They show all types of favoritism towards certain employees and let the employees and donors disrespect each other and do whatever they want. There’s a lot of gossiping and a lot of playing around going on. I believe that company needs a wiping out of management and better pay for all employees because the employees bust their butts everyday and are miserable everyday. They are all very unprofessional!
Paid time off, relationships with certain employees and donors
Victim (Former Employee) – Forestville, MD – October 19, 2018
Worst job I’ve ever had. Paid new/under qualified employees more than existing employees. Terrible scheduling, be prepared to work every weekend and for short shifts so they don’t have to pay overtime. No structure management positions are given to kids fresh out of college. Crazy point system that can get you terminated easily ( but is up to management to give points or not) Crazy right?? NEGATIVITY in every inch of the building. Co workers are great. Met a lot of people that were great but the management..... omg!!! So glad I never have to step foot in there again!!!!
Demanding and underpaid, overlooked and poorly managed

Not good for anyone with a family. If you are looking for part time work or experience not a bad place to start as a stepping stone. Management is not understanding and does not care about the well being of employees.
