    Pros

    Good pay. Very good benefits. The staff is great for the most part. Training is very thorough and kept up to date.

    Cons

    As a Nurse I am responsible for physicals, consultations, passing lab results, handling medical incidences on the floor and reinstating donors that have been deferred for various reasons. The means I always have work to do. Management has decided that on top of that I am required to screen a minimum number of donors and assist donor processors in other ways that will take on average 5 hours out of my work week. The screeners get to report to management if I do not help them regardless of my workload for the day. However, at the same time, we are told we need to get more new donors physicaled and do it with less overtime. I essentially have to fulfill my nursing duties and still help the front staff do their jobs. Poor use of resources and very poor critical thinking skills on the part of the management team.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your medical staff. They have the most experience and training in the building. Most of them are highly skilled and used to running medical floors and managing large patient loads and the care staff.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people that came into the plasma center. I enjoyed working there and being a part of helping others. I love phlebotomy and was very good at my job.

    Cons

    Promotions were not given as they should have been. Management was bias and promotions were based on the relationship or friendship you had with management. I was forced to leave due to my completion of my medical assistant certification and needed to work under a physician. I had to make the difficult decision to leave my job I loved to complete my externship and graduate.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that management should discuss issues with the individual and not with relatives or on social media. I feel that in management the company should be the best interest and not upholding a grudge.

    A nightmare

    Former Employee - Anonymous in Rockford, IL

    Pros

    Most of the donors are nice to work with. The same people come in all of the time so you get to know them pretty well.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional environment. The center manager has no clue how to run the place, which is evident by the disorganization. Hours change without adequate notice. Low staffing levels daily so everyone does twice the work. Pay is ridiculous for the amount of work that you actually do vs what you are told in the interview process.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming everything on corporate and do something about the problems!

    Zero teamwork or ethics. Supervisors are a unprofessional and hypocritical. Runs on "Good ol' boy" mentality.

    Pros

    I had to think hard and there is only two things I came up with: 1. On the job training for those with no experience. 2. Benefits. That's it.

    Cons

    There is not enough space to list all the Cons! Where do I start? Q: Have a personal life(school, family, etc.)? A: They don't care. I know of 5 employees that have been arrested while employed there and it is swept under the rug. 2 of which have been promoted to supervisors (DUI and Larceny). Then they have the nerve to hold "Ethics" meetings every week. The laundry list goes on and on...

    Advice to Management

    Value your senior employees. Follow through with commitments. Don't put people that can't stay out of legal trouble (DUIs, Larceny, Shoplifting, Battery, just to name a few) IN LEADERSHIP POSITIONS AND HAVE THEM TALK ABOUT "ETHICS" !!!!
