SMT (Former Employee) –  FloridaNovember 28, 2018
They hate millennials and they think they are doing nothing wrong. If you're work is done for the day, you still have to sit around twittling your thumbs until the "bell rings" and you can run out like a herd of cows.

They are trying to turn things around, but they need to adjust the attitudes of the employees that have been trapped there for countless decades.

Don't let them like to you about vacation days. You get nothing because they MAKE you subtract all national holidays even if your department is not needed during the holidays. I was left with 5 for the WHOLE YEAR.
Cons
Management, work life balance

Good Place to Work
Donor Services Specialist (Current Employee) –  Ormond Beach, FLOctober 27, 2018
My time with one blood has been good. I have learned alot. It is what you make it! You have to be flexible there is no set schedule for mobile staff. It is not the job to have if you have small children without a support system. If you are going back to school you will not have the schedule to go to class on campus or do clinicals. If you live in a bigger city or willing to relocate to a main headquarters there is room for advancement because there are more positions. You will either love or hate this job it is not for everyone. The work you do is very rewarding knowing you are saving lives daily.
Pros
Pay, benifits, annual raises, work setting, travel, learning
Cons
No set hours

Good job, Horrible management
Telemarketer (Former Employee) –  Hialeah, FLOctober 25, 2018
I was a tele recruiter for Oneblood in Miami and the job is easy and laid back, you do have to meet a quota but you also get a bonus every month if you do good. My only problem was the managment and the lack of respect they have. Not only would they raise the quota every month but expect you to force people to go donate regardless if the donor is cursing at you through the phone because they're tired of being called every 2 weeks, but they also closed the branch i was working in and let us go the same day we were informed that we no longer had a job, without any notice in advance. This company can care less about their employees and just cares about making money.
Pros
Easy work, good money
Cons

Don’t work here!!!
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lakeland, FLOctober 21, 2018
I was in one of the CTL (compatibility testing lab) branches for 6 years. Oneblood is a joke! It was ok before the merger and I still worked for Florida Blood Services. Management is inconsistent and doesn’t care. One of their policies states that no current employees are allowed to give any other current or former employees any job or education references. This is because the turnover is so high. Raises are rarely more than 20 cents increase, no matter how hard you work. Employees are allowed to get away with being lazy while others are expected to pick up the slack.
Pros
None
Cons
Management, pay, environment

You are just a number
Biologics Assistant Distribution (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FL 33716October 14, 2018
Oneblood went from a company that felt like a family to an impersonal work place where you don't matter. They claim that communication is important however they never listen or communicate with you. They say that they want you to have a work life balance however they change you're schedule without your consent. Management insists that you come in on your day off to cover but they rarely do it themselves and get up set when you say you can't. Plus when you don't make enough to live on you can't really have a life outside of work. there is the culture of negative reinforcement, they only notice you if you mess up in some fashion.
Pros
decent paid time off
Cons
kinda everything else

It’s not what it seems to be
Tele-recruiter (Former Employee) –  Hialeah, FLOctober 24, 2018
As a tele-recruiter, the duties are to communicate with former donors to come in to donate again at one of our local blood drives or donor centers. In this position, you’ll guide donors to the correct facility to donate and answer any questions regarding in their donations, cholesterol level, iron level, concerns, or complaints from their donations. This position, however, brings with a lot of requirements as there is a quota that needs to be met every month. The issue with this is they increase the quota which puts the tele-recruiter in a bad position. As much as you try your best to achieve the requirements, it is never enough for the management. This puts on stress in the job and loose the motivation to achieve OneBloods goal.
Pros
Great coworkers, fun workplace
Cons
Short breaks, management, quota

It's a paycheck with a purpose.
Team Lead Phlebotomist (Current Employee) –  Lakeland, FLNovember 6, 2018
The donors are what makes this company. Without them we would not be able to supply the hospitals for their patients.
There is not a replacement or alternative for human blood.
Pros
Not sitting behind a desk every day. You work with different people, different places each and every day.
Cons
The hours stink! Making time for your own family is hard.

Fun place to work
Donor Services Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Lantana, FLAugust 31, 2018
Its not your normal 9-5. You actually work with different staff all the time and you're always in a different location meeting new people. They should do a better job as far as scheduling when it comes to the ones with small children and the crowd that's over a certain age by trying to accommodate them. The pressure on making goal is ridiculous but overall its a good company to work for if you dont mind the crazy schedule.
Pros
Overtime, pto
Cons
Schedule, management

Tele-Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Hialeah, FLDecember 14, 2018
Flexible hours, repetitive job and can get boring if you don't have the right co-workers. Also, company and management doesn't care about their employees, my department was laid-off with no noticed in advance. Almost 10 people lost the job.
Pros
Flexible job
Cons
Management sucks

Fun place to work but too many clicks
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLSeptember 20, 2018
Too many clicks. A lot of criticism vs constructive criticism. Most of the employees are trained by the company how to stick people vs people who actually have a certification in phlebotomy. Some team leads are rude and set you up for failure. Most of them don’t even know why certain special collections are being collected other than what the dr wrote on prescription (to collect at certain iron levels) but they don’t know the medical terminology as to why they are doing it. Ferritin level may be too high and one employee didn’t even know what Ferritin was and couldn’t understand the prescription. Since I’m certification, I had to explain what Ferritin was and why she had donate at certain hemoglobin levels.
Pros
Donors are extremely friendly and don’t judge new employees
Cons
Lucky to get a break or go to lunch and if you do and you’re new, you’re the last one to get a break or lunch

Its a good starter company
Customer Care Associate (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLAugust 10, 2018
Oneblood is a good company to start at if you are interested in blood banking and blood banking technology. They provide training without certification for phlebotomy. Customer Care can be stressful during the busier season; however, communication and feedback is key.
Pros
Healthcare benefits, PTO earning, flexible schedule
Cons
Stressful environment during the busy holiday season.

Manager of Instructor Led Training (Former Employee) –  St. Petersburg, FLJanuary 22, 2019
Prior to the blood center merging into One Blood it was called Florida Blood Services. My growth within the company was steady and there was always someone that would mentor me for my next step. It was a wonderful place to work.

Regional Leader in Blood collection and manufacturing
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Palm Harbor, FLJuly 17, 2018
Oneblood is the regional leader in blood collection and manufacturing blood products throughout most of Florida,and parts of Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina. Oneblood is very committed to donor retention and maintaining Good Manufacturing practices.

My typical work day included doing registration and patient check in, health screenings, performing blood draws and performing platelet apheresis procedures. Procedure wrap up and providing after care instructions.

The most enjoyable part of my job was having a bond with my coworkers and, developing interpersonal relationships with the regular donors.
Pros
Continued education
Cons
short staffed

Horrible
Technician (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLAugust 14, 2018
This company is supposedly non-profit. That is a lie. It shows by how many blood drives they have, lack of raises and low pay. They are stingy about using your own PTO and do not care about the blood product- just the money. They used the PULSE shooting to make money and do not honor it the way they should. MAnagement is abusive.

Productive workplace
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLOctober 3, 2018
I learned a lot about blood and what each part is used for. The workplace was very comfortable to work in. Great team work. Hardest part of the job is working long hours and dealing with adverse reactions and paperwork.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
Long hours

Too large for its own good
Biologics Assistant (Current Employee) –  FloridaNovember 14, 2018
Nice enough place to work, but has grown too large. Work volume is erratic. Poor communication leads to problems that otherwise wouldn't exist. Good to know that you help people though.

It's a job
Donor service manager (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLJune 7, 2018
Was here 5 years when one blood was originally Florida Blood Services. This job would be goo for a person without many prior obligations. Hours are long and random no flexibility in schedule and a big turn over rate. Work days are driven by a sometimes unattainable donor goal system. Buses are now always short staffed usually with only two staff at a promotional drives, aka gift card drives. Management does not communicate well and does not listen to staff concerns, questions or ideas. You will be sabotaged if you try to move up the ladder.
Pros
Long Hours low pay for new hires
Cons
short staffed, no allotted lunch breaks

Horrible management
Phlebotomist Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLJanuary 8, 2019
Saint Petersburg mobiles is wonderful. The people you work with go to work. They rock it out and do amazing stuff. However, The management has no grasp on the ball. They consistently contradict themselves and each other. They have no cares about the staff or their safety by requiring you to go out with only two staff members. You dont get breaks for the restroom if donors are on board and you are expected to be out for 5-7 hours on any given blood drive. The job itself it's quite simple and fun. The donors are amazing and what you do there is astonishing. You are literally saving lives. If you can work multiple strings of days in a row without getting any set days off, are ok with having a different clock in time every day, and your safety isn't a concern then this will be a great job for you. If you don't mind constantly being told to do one thing and then when you do it, you're told it's wrong then this job is for you. Try and stay away from any of the supervisors & managers and you will have an enjoyable experience.
Pros
Saving lives, great coworkers
Cons
