    Plasma Center Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Layton, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Biolife Plasma Services (Layton, UT) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Asked me about why I wanted to work there, future educational goals, and asked about moral dilemmas and what I would do. They asked me about the medical significance of plasma proteins to gauge my understanding. Overall, pretty laid back. The interviewer let me ask him questions and it was a good experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Biolife Plasma Services (Springfield, MO) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Initially spoke w/John for a phone interview. Felt that went great. The Face2Face interview was w/Dan & Mark (I believe). After the typical interview questions were asked & answered, I was taken to the clinic floor w/the Clinical Supervisor. He took me through each step of the donation process. Loved it!

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sheboygan, WI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Biolife Plasma Services (Sheboygan, WI) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The questions asked during the interview are intended to evaluate your ethical and moral courage than your ability to do the daily tasks of the job. They believe you can train a person to do the task, but you cannot teach someone to be ethic. They are looking for real life examples of times that you had to make difficult decisions, have an uncomfortable conversation with a Supervisor or co-worker pertaining to their own work performance etc. You must have specific stories and examples, general statements about what you think you would do in those situations will not be good enough.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time that you saw a co-worker doing something unethical. How did you handle it? What response did you get in return?   1 Answer

    RN Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Biolife Plasma Services (Green Bay, WI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Process lasted over a month. Had a brief phone interview to begin. Met with an assistant manager and another RN for a first interview, then job shadowed that same day for about 2 hours. Got a call back for another interview, which happened about two weeks later. Had that interview, and was about another three weeks before I got an offer. The offer was a position as an RN, but not at all the hours or days discussed during the interview process. Transparency during the interviews and discussions about schedule would have been much easier than going through the long process only to be offered something completely different.

    Phlebotomist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Cloud, MN
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Biolife Plasma Services (Saint Cloud, MN) in March 2019.

    Interview

    The initial call to interview was relatively quick - maybe 2 or 3 days after applying. I got in the following day for the first interview which was great! The gal who interviewed me was very personable and friendly. We discussed dress code and I was provided a tour of the facility. I was told I would be receiving a call to set up a second interview with the center manager shortly. I left this session feeling great and welcomed.

    Over a week later, I had not heard anything so I called to follow up. I was told at this time that they had not forgotten about me and I would be contacted the same day or the following. 4-5 days later, I finally received the call. I interviewed with the center manager and it was completely different than my initial interview. She was very cold and somewhat rude. She was questioning my previous experiences as if there was no way I could have performed such large tasks/positions. The second interview experience ultimately resulted in me choosing a different employment opportunity.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Biolife Plasma Services (State College, PA).

    Interview

    Got called for a phone interview. Didn't get the message until they were already closed for the day. Called back the next morning and they said they'd call me back when they had the questions ready in a few hours... I waited 72 hours without being called back before calling again. Management was "too busy" to take my call and the person who answered the phone took a message. Never got called back.
