    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat your staff better and productivity will increase.

    Pros

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

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

    Current Employee - Phlebotomist in Kansas City, MO

    I have been working at CSL Plasma full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at CSL Plasma full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The training prior to working alone on floor was pretty good compared to other companies. Other staff always seemed willing to help if asked.

    Cons

    Pay was not up to par at all to start with and never any incentives or opportunities to get pay increase. Always felt rushed to get clients in and out door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they should value an employee who goes above and beyond, and they should put more emphasis on client care.
