    Pros

    Consistent hours, most donors are nice.

    Cons

    Management are rude (even to donors!), demeaning, unapproachable, operate on a good-ole-boy network (you WILL NOT advance unless they love you), and most of the time act like they have no idea what they are doing. They don't care about you or the fact that you have a life outside work.

    Training for new areas can take months and the pay raises are meager for the amount of new work you take on.

    Very, very repetitive work.

    Most centers are near low-income areas, and most of the employees come from the lowest echelons of society and have very ghetto attitudes, and they carry these attitudes to work with them. Expect them to act like your friend to your face and then stab you in the back at every opportunity.

    Very low pay for the amount of work you do and the risks you expose yourself to.

    When you go home depends entirely on how fast the machines process the last person. If someone comes in a minute before closing (most of the time someone does), you can face a 30 to 90 minute delay in when you can go home, even longer if there are complications.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Octapharma Plasma.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview with STAR questions. I was experienced in plasma so I didn't feel uncomfortable in either of my 2 interviews. Most questions were management related, like how have you handled different situations.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were asking what you have done or what you would do in a specific circumstance, example: how would you handle a disagreement with a coworker.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did negotiate a little. I got what I asked for.
