    stress levels of employee from client and duties. the pay wasn't too good for the amount of work and stress that goes on at these establishments. no marketing.

    Pros

    Pros are that the company is not that bad and the people you work with are cool for the most part. The job is easy and not hard to learn but this can also be a negative as well. Csl also let's employees donate after 3 months and they get paid 50 each time, which helps make up for the lack of pay Cons are that the pay sucks, and the job is super repetitive. I'm doing the same process every 5 minutes basically sometimes faster. It gets old quick. Some of the donors are rude and unrefined. Management is very scattered and in different directions on different days

    Cons

    Just look at the pros section

    Advice to Management

    More pay

    Pros

    The company has great benefits such as generous PTO, extremely cheap dental and medical, 5% 401k employer match, and 15% share discount. The company it's growing quickly, which offers a lot opportunities to advance and relocate.

    Cons

    Base salary is low, and annual raises range from 0-5% and on average are less than inflation for the average employee.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to acknowledge employees for their hard work, and take more time to meet with each employee to assist in development, and to ensure that they are receiving the support needed to be successful.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the flexibility and benefits were good. I met folks from all walks of life and gained perspective. I had great conversations and hopefully lifted a few spirits of those that were struggling in life.

    Cons

    This is a manufacturing company with ever changing instructions. Using nursing judgement was frowned on.

    Advice to Management

    Empathy is a positive trait. Having a donor trust you can prevent issues.

    I worked at CSL Plasma part-time

    Pros

    Fun people to work with, got to meet a variety of cultures with donors coming in. Work moved fairly quickly since you would stay busy.

    Cons

    Management did not have it under control, and were always micromanaging the employees. Were forced to stay in a 3X5 foot work area.

    Advice to Management

    STOP MICROMANAGING! Trust the employees to do what you spent 2 weeks training them on. Trust goes a long way in the workplace.

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

    Pros

    The work isn't hard to pick up and the training, if done right, will help. The busyness of the work days make the days go by faster and the chance to move up is looming.

    Cons

    Upgrading salary takes forever within the company, and the chance for a raise is low. The chance for movement is high although it means you will get worked more for the same pay. Management doesn't know how to effectively run the business while providing good customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Talking to their employees and patients better as well as rewarding hard work more often to show recognition.

    Pros

    at least you have a job.

    Cons

    Management needs to be replaced with qualified people. They often are bullies and have unprofessional behavior. Corporate needs to be notified about the misconduct there things like sexual harassment ,fixing records to PRD people they don't like, this place is not clean at all mold in the microwaves If something is not done about this center they will face a long and dreadful Law suit or maybe even be closed down.

    Advice to Management

    They need to be replace. you can't fix a rotten egg.
