    Plasma Processor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Octapharma Plasma (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interview was very lengthy (2 hours) asking most questions more than once and in different ways, I suppose to see if I would answer differently. Asked a lot of personal questions but gave some advice along the way. They take you on a tour first, then in the office for the interview. Oh, and there was a phone interview before, I believe from the corporate office or somewhere out of town.

    Phlebotomist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Octapharma Plasma in October 2017.

    Interview

    Called for a phone interview after applying online. Scheduled in-person interview for the following day. Interview was typical until the interviewer, who wasn't "the deciding factor" informed me that I didn't have the experience she thought necessary for the position I was interviewing for. She then suggested I start at a lower position and work my way up, but couldn't give me an exact time frame. I was interviewing for the phlebotomist position and she suggested starting as a Donor Floor Tech, the only difference being that phlebotomists do sticks and Donor Floor Techs do not. But if I didn't have the experience necessary, why call me in to interview for the position in the first place. And why would I start in a position that wouldn't get me the experience they were looking for?

    Medical Screener Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Octapharma Plasma (Columbus, OH) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was easy and it was informational. The Manager That interviewed me explained everything about the job from A to Z. I actually enjoyed the interview. I applied at the south high street location. I was hired on the spot I just had to wait for the drug test. Which came back negative so i was good as usual. I just wish I started the job but I had some discrepancies with a family member and there getting to work. So I didn't get to start my job. I just wish they could have used me for part time until I got the situation fixed. With me having 16 yrs of medical experience under my belt this would have been great as well.

    Interview Questions

    • How would I handle a donor that is upset because they wont get to donate that day? Or when a donor that has waited for a long period of time?   Answer Question
