    Pros

    Very low stress. Clean working environment. Pretty much the exact opposite of what any career paramedic understands to be their job. Nice change of pace.

    Cons

    Young and immature staff as a whole. These are entry level jobs for the most part, outside the management and medical staff. Somewhat to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Splurge and pay for the slightly more "seasoned" technicians. They need little training and will, most likely, strive to further themselves up the ladder.

  2. I have learned so much about myself and how to maintain stability on a job.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement. Great for people persons. Shifts typically go by fast paced.

    Cons

    Management is extremely unorganized. Favoritism is overwhelming. If your are not a people person, this is not the job for you. Long hours on busy production days.

    Advice to Management

    Allow staff to cross train more. Also notice good quality and quantity work. Promote loyal workers and stop promoting based on who you are friends with.

    Pros

    Employee donors get a higher fee than the public and its the Same rate for both first and second donations. Also, ive met and worked with a good group of people. Some that actually know the true meaning of the word TEAM!

    Cons

    No sick days. There are no excused absences.. So if you were hit by a truck. .and they have proof that you have crushed ribs..you will still get penalized for it. You are trained for multiple positions but with out a pay raise.
    Having to deal with smelly and difficult donors. They have no standards of who they let in the center. .as long as they r disease free.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff better and productivity will increase.

    Pros

    I love my co-workers and the donors.

    Cons

    No grace period, unsatisfactory pay, unprofessional boss , mirco-managed job, ppl quite almost everyday (short staffed), unappreciated, stressful.

    Advice to Management

    STOP BEING RUDE TO DONORS AND EMPLOYEE'S, consider your workers, work diligently yourself , don't complain about working, don't talk down to others, don't throw others under the bus, have integrity, and help build morale not break it down

    Pros

    Great place to start out and learn lots of new skills, customer/patient interaction is great. Healthcare benefits are pretty decent.

    Cons

    With all the stuff you need to know, they should pay more, it is the healthcare industry after all.

    Pros

    Will train you on phlebotomy and other positions, regardless of schooling. Good way to get some experience for your resume.

    Cons

    Pay is weak for the workload. Management holds employees to a higher standard that they don't care to uphold to. Can be very stressful, especially when management continuously short staffs the business. Will schedule to close one day and open the next. Doesn't seem to put into consideration the lives of their employees. Located in a fairly ghetto part of the city. There are group leads and management that act like they can't be bothered if you need help with a task.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your schedules. Stop sending people home right before a rush of donors comes in. Treat your employees with respect.
