    Former Employee - Donor Recruitment Representative in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at American Red Cross full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Bonuses and pay are extremely good for a non-profit if the territory that you get is set up to succeed. Team enviornment at the employee level and within Phlebotomists and Donor Recruitment Representatives. Great way to network and meet people in your community.

    Cons

    Managers and Directors are extremely out of touch with the work put in by Recruitment Reps and Phlebotomists. Employees work very long hours and often 7 days a week. Employees are expected to answer their phones and emails immediately at all hours. Directors and Supervisors cause conflicts between Phlebotomists and Recruitment Reps. Everything is about money when it should be about helping the sick. Say they believe in diversity, but they don't understand diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house from the top down. Appreciate the people at the bottom who are making you all of the money. Don't reorganizing territories when Reps begin to succeed. Change the way that you do business before other Blood Organizations completely take over. Attempt to understand diversity and the diverse cultures, without them you will never succeed.

    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice and that's really the only thing that could be said ab out that.

    Cons

    Management is poor
    Benefits are sub-par

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and quit changing everything every two weeks. Comply with the FDA and quit trying to go above and beyond, just to fail miserably.
