    I worked at CSL Plasma full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot working there and the opportunity for travel was great!

    Cons

    If the wrong person doesn't like you, it can mean hell for your career. Mgmt roles are very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go into the centers and ASK QUESTIONS OF THE EMPLOYEES!!!

    I worked at CSL Plasma full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a very dynamic environment with lots to learn and practice that knowledge. You will be doing a job asap after training, especially if management really needs you, and positions are always available out there. Young stuff, maybe fun place. Strick regulations to follow and avoid mistakes, ANY! Might get fired on the spot if done something wrong. I put almost 3 years there and for me it was OK experience with lots to learn and overcoming myself. Treat this job very serious as it involves saving people lives and collecting good plasma from healthy people is vital. No shortcuts. Benefits are ok so is the team spirit! Be prepared to depend on each other since cross training is inevitable.

    Cons

    Favoritism, low pay for amount of work you do, and management who either like you or not. If not, you are in trouble! Donors maybe rude and under influence and you gotta be able to stand up for yourself as an employee. Sometimes low moral at work place. Have to work a long time and very hard to get a decent promotion. Long hours with over pay if full-time, but lots of stress since amount of donors and employees may not be balanced well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat everybody as you would like to be treated. Give a chance for training and advancement to people who truly deserve it. Donors are not always right! Stand out for your employees sometimes! And be loyal for people who have been so dedicated to this job instead of firing them on the spot. It can be a great place to work, management, it is all in your hands!

    I worked at CSL Plasma part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good stepping stone if you want to get into phlebotomy, almost always guaranteed same amount of hours.

    Cons

    The pay could definitely be better considering you're dealing with people, their blood, plasma, and other possible bodily fluids PLUS the occasional donor reaction, employees are highly unprofessional, management favorism, looked down upon if you're simply a DST and not a phlebotomist, double standards when it comes to policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider changing CSL to appointment only, therefore creating less stress for everyone. Having several donors come in 5-10 minutes before close is ridiculous, even clothing stores in malls lock their doors/close their gates 15 minutes to a half hour before closing. Make sure ALL of your employees follow policy and not just the "favorites," for this is extremely frustrating. Also, don't sugarcoat the job description. I came in thinking I would have specific hours (which is necessary since my husband is active military and we are a one vehicle family) and that I wouldn't HAVE to become a phlebotomist right after DST training but that was determined to be a lie.

    Pros

    It's really repetitive, if you like that.

    Also no interacts with donor, your left in peace.

    Cons

    The pay is really low for the amount of work and responsibility that you have.

    Being exposed to untested plasma... And yes you will be exposed, I've had it spill on me multiple times.
