    I worked at South Texas Blood & Tissue Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good for people who want to get their foot in the door of the medical field. Will get a lot of experience for those who want practice in Phlebotomy. When it's busy the day goes by fast! Positive attitude. You feel good doing this job because you are helping to save lives. Decent trainers. If you are applying for the tech 2 position (driver and phlebotomy tech) You will get good training to drive the blood bus for your passenger endorsement. Good job for multitaskers or for people who don't like "sitting down on the job". Paid training.

    Cons

    If you don't like blood or if the idea of sticking people with needles makes you uncomfortable, or if you don't like to do work, this is NOT the job for you. Holidays, and the summer (when school is out) is the slowest time of the year. Be prepared for the day to drag on and on during these times. Pay for techs are in the $11-12's. Training is a good 3 months and you will get paid less per hour until you finish. The best way to make more money is by being a tech 2, which is the blood tech and driver (overtime). Be prepared to not get home on time (eg if a drive ends at 4PM, You might not clock out until like 6). They are very anal about standard operating procedures. In fact, half the time you will be reading a lot of these SOP's. Everything having to be done in a certain way from signing your name, to taking a blood pressure. So if you are coming from another job in the medical field, it can be frustrating to have to learn a lot of stuff over again the way THEY want you to do it. It's understandable in a way, because they are handling blood that is going to be used by people. If one thing is wrong it can get a unit of blood destroyed, but sometimes they go a bit overboard. Drama. There is always going to be drama at any job you go to, but here the drama is way too much. People are quick to report you for any little thing. Lack of communication. Some team leaders treat the new people as If they know everything already and are quick to get them in trouble. Sometimes it felt like people are trying to get you into trouble. Integrity can be lacking, so cover yourself. Dot your I's and cross your T's. People will let you get in trouble for some thing that they did especially if you are new. This job has a HIGH turnout rate. And I think the drama is part of the cause. The Gossiping here is on a whole new level. Everything seemed so professional when I got hired which left me scratching my head is to why the job turned out like this.
