    Lab Technician II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Luis Obispo, CA
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Blood Services (San Luis Obispo, CA).

    Interview

    Currently undergoing the interview process. First I had a phone interview with the HR manager. A few days later I received a call back for a personal interview at the blood center to interview in person with the HR manager and the Lab Director. I am in the process for a third interview that is another personal interview with the HR manager and other individuals that I am not sure who I will interview with. They had told me that if I passed this interview process I would have a last fourth interview that is a peer interview with employees that would there and that I would have to work with.

    Has anyone gone through this process as well?

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at United Blood Services in September 2007.

    Interview

    The process consisted of two parts. Firstly, I met one of the nurses who worked for UBS who talked to me about the job and told me of the benefits of the job and working for UBS. He explained that I would need to put in a written application to human resources, and they would do all the necessary background checks. When they had a hard time getting a hold of my referrals, I had to get more referrals for them to check. This got me scared. Finally they got a hold of everyone, ran my police report and credit report and they then gave my application to my medical director who called me personally for an interview. The interview with the medical director was very pleasant. She only described the job and asked if I was interested. I then spoke with her and the current group supervisor together, which also went very well. She called me back the next day with a job offer.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiating, which made it easier for me, since I don't negotiate well. The entry level salary was predetermined. It was explained that there was no set schedule for work days, and that one day a week would be an on call day.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at United Blood Services (Ventura, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    4 interviews. First one is a phone interview from HR. 2nd and 2rd with management and HR. 4th is a peer interview,which is awesome. Peer interview was the best part. A panel of random potential Co workers interviewEd me with previous approved questions. I then was allowed to ask them questions about the company as well. Excellent way to interview potentials to see if will be a good fit both ways.

    Marketing Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Paso, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Blood Services (El Paso, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Series of written questions are asked as they write. The process itself is very impersonal. Be prepared with knowledge of the company and role of job and how you would fulfill the duties of the job. Although the job description does not say you will be traveling the majority of the time and the territory you will be covering.

    Donor Recruitment Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Billings, MT
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Blood Services (Billings, MT) in July 2017.

    Interview

    They move slow, the process took a month. It was a panel discussion with Adam from HR in Billings and two managers calling in remote from Fargo. I wont bore you with the details. Spoiler alert: I did not get the job. Did I nail the interview? I could have done better. Still I have 6 years in blood banking, 4 of which were in the role; with great success I might add. I find it difficult to believe that they had a more qualified candidate; I did not even get a second interview! This leads me to believe that it is true what I have heard about UBS: 1. They only hire family and friends (what a terrible way to run a company) 2. They will not hire you for your initial position if you are over 50. They, like many companies seem to have a fetish for
    millennials. Hmmmm....this all could be the root of their overall dis-function. What a waste of time. I should have taken it as a sign when Adam said the following during a phone interview: "I do not know what is up with these people, I see them pass on the most qualified candidate all the time".
