Worked as a phlebotomist for over 2 years here. There was a little work dread just like any job, but day to day wasn't bad. But as I've moved on to different positions in labs and hospitals, I really miss working at BioLife and it being a professional but also very chill environment, and there's way more co-workers to get along with at BioLife, unlike most of healthcare arrogance out there.
