    Donor Care Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at United Blood Services (Las Vegas, NV).

    Interview

    The interview went very smoothly. I was dressed somewhat inappropriately because I didn't have clothes that fit me. My sister lent me a skirt suit that was much too tight. I burst out of it. But I was hired anyway thanks to good old-fashioned nepotism. My mom worked in admin and she got me hired, even though they knew I was a former stripper. I think they like to hire as low class as possible to reduce the chances that employees will band together to form unions. There is also less of a chance of them getting sued by a poor or low-class individuals. I admit fully, I was in a lower socioeconomic class at that time, and looked it. I suggest showing up to the interview looking nice, but try to drop hints that you're poor. You'll have a better chance of getting hired for the lower-level positions.

    Interview

    Currently undergoing the interview process. First I had a phone interview with the HR manager. A few days later I received a call back for a personal interview at the blood center to interview in person with the HR manager and the Lab Director. I am in the process for a third interview that is another personal interview with the HR manager and other individuals that I am not sure who I will interview with. They had told me that if I passed this interview process I would have a last fourth interview that is a peer interview with employees that would there and that I would have to work with.

    Has anyone gone through this process as well?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at United Blood Services (Scottsdale, AZ) in February 2012.

    Interview

    You do two interviews with a temporary agency along with doing a drug test and background check if you pass all that you will do an interview with HR. Once you pass the interview process you do 3 months training (paid). If you don't pass any of the tests you automatically get fired. If you pass that you do another interview background/drug test with HR again. And that will determine if you will be working for UBS or not.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at United Blood Services in September 2007.

    Interview

    The process consisted of two parts. Firstly, I met one of the nurses who worked for UBS who talked to me about the job and told me of the benefits of the job and working for UBS. He explained that I would need to put in a written application to human resources, and they would do all the necessary background checks. When they had a hard time getting a hold of my referrals, I had to get more referrals for them to check. This got me scared. Finally they got a hold of everyone, ran my police report and credit report and they then gave my application to my medical director who called me personally for an interview. The interview with the medical director was very pleasant. She only described the job and asked if I was interested. I then spoke with her and the current group supervisor together, which also went very well. She called me back the next day with a job offer.
