    I have been working at DCI Biologicals

    Pros

    Medical benefits are some of the best available
    Opportunity to cross train for $1/hr for each of 3 areas trained
    Interact with variety of people
    Time off requests honored most of the time
    After 1 year get 2 weeks paid vacation and 6 PTO days

    Cons

    Management are too inexperienced to be in their positions,
    Supervisors abuse power and frequently harass employees below them,
    Cross training raise can take up to 6 months to receive with no back pay,
    No recognition or praise for good work,
    No opportunity for advancement without personal friendships with those higher up
    Management bias

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize feedback from lower employees, better background checks for potential hires, better investigation of abilities before promotion,

    I have been working at DCI Biologicals full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits package with PTO and sick days

    Cons

    Stressful environment, management seems to overlook gravely disturbing behaviors in some, while being overly critical of others. Management bias seems to lean toward the worst employees favoring the worst behaviors. Scheduling is only put out 3 days in advance of work week. Pay starting barely above minimum, employee turnover is about 80%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying substantially more, and you will retain staff and recruit quality workers.

    I worked at DCI Biologicals

    Pros

    Benefits are OK, monthly bonuses are a plus, Some centers may run better than the one that I worked in but the head manager of my center had a high school diploma and no management skills whatsoever.

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea what is really going on at the donation center level. The pay is awful, they are hiring phlebotomists, receptionist, and lab techs at MINIMUM WAGE, and thus have sub par employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better and you may acquire better employees with loyalty to the company. You simply can't expect employees who are willing to work hard when you are only willing to pay min. wage.
