Felt like an outsider because everybody who worked there went to High School together.

Pros

If you are in with the good ole boy network then you will have a wonderful experience. If not, your experience will be horrible. Not a good place for a Northerner or an outsider to work.

Cons

It is a managers place to work from a standpoint of HR. Company's HR policy is heavy favored for the manager and not the employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the good ole boy network and get some talent in there. Make clayton a melting pot. The un-welcoming of outsiders will catch up eventually.

    worked like a mule, center understaffed, no time to crosstrain or advance

    Pros

    experience, and flexibility with schedule

    Cons

    center staff is viewed as bottom dollar, work them harder and harder is the motto. was there 2.5 years and couldn't get cross trained because the center was always understaffed and trying to get as many donors though in as little amount of time that they could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you center staff work darn hard and you need to recognize their efforts, stop looking at bottom dollars costs and give them opportunities

    Working for Talecris has taught me a lot about plasma that I never knew about from being a donor.

    Pros

    Excellent location, it's 1 mile from my home. I've never made a better hourly rate like this from previous jobs. The donors are like family at times, and since I started off as a donor back in March 2006 and converted to an employee in September 2006, there has been a lot to experience and learn from this company that can take me anywhere I want to go in the med field. Thanks for believing in me TPR.

    Cons

    The current management that is at BRLA isn't quite as friendly as the management team that worked there when I was hired. The center manager talks to us as if we're animals, barking orders, not even speaking in the morning when you speak to her. Of course she blames it from being in the military for so long. I wish there was no such thing as HPD(Hours Per Donor), it puts such a damper on our paychecks around tax season. We all understand that the company wants to make more money than pay us more around this time, but it just makes it not working from January - May.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nicer to your employees, we have feelings too and at times you act as if you don't care. But please be aware that Karma does exist.
