    I have been working at United Blood Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    heavy call volume, light data entry, great place to obtain resume experience, fresh faces, it feels good to help save lives, reliable hours occasional OT, casual dress, managers and staff helpful, occasional paid training

    Cons

    substandard pay rate, high turnover, unnecessarily noisy: coworkers/staff chat & make distractions, no night shift pay- even for our full timers who work the entire night shift, no attendance bonus, monthly performance bonus based primarily on donor show rate (something that we ultimately have little control), voicemail galore, a handwritten form factory: be prepared to write clearly

    Advice to Management

    To help reduce this high turnover rate: increase our hourly compensation

    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".
