I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Decent Pay, lots of MANDATORY overtime(don't even know if that is a "plus" )
. Paid time off. That's IT !!! No Life !!

Cons

Consent Decree for almost 20 Years, are You kidding the American Public ??
ANY Private company would be shut the heck down by now !!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get in the Lab and see what's really going on. Morale is at an all time low, and tech's are sick and tired of getting written up or talked to by problem management. Makes us want to work slower and more carefull so we don't make mistakes. Lot of Units out of refrigeration for up to 2 HOURS !!!!! How can this even happen !?!?!? Sup's even know this, and see it, and don't give a darn because they feel like the rest of us that we are overwhelmed with 1500 units (at least) everynite on swingshift. Then Grave comes in and retaliates on the other shifts cause they don't like being bombarded with the workload..Lots of restructuring needed here. I can name management but i'm sorry I need my job to provide for my family...
