    I have been working at Biolife Plasma Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent considering you don't need experience. Immediate vacation time, immediate benefits, multiple raises, food is catered frequently, love the donors.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care if you want to move up the ladder or not. Management is not there to help, more than half the time. They focus more on the needs of the center than of the employee. Because of this, there's a VERY high turnover. Short staffed, rude coworkers. Not the positive workplace I thought it was when I first started.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees consistently and listen to their needs! Hire new people when someone quits. Then you won't be so short-handed and the workplace won't be so miserable.

    I worked at Biolife Plasma Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get hired. Good benefits for full and part time employees. They can help with school costs.

    Cons

    High stress. Low praise. Management unwilling to help. Center management has no idea of actual flow on donor floor. No individual praise, high team expectancy, which cannot be achieved due to hiring of everyone that applies.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the individual which can then provide a better training experience.

    donors are why that business is there.

    If you cant work well to gather how can any one else. You are dis-honestest you should not be trusted.

    Loved my co-workers
    Excellent job to learn phlebotomy and other skills with little or no experience in the field

    Pay is so-so if you have experience unless you advance in the company which they do promote from within

    I have been working at Biolife Plasma Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits. I've never had a job that gives paid days off and vacation time so it is just a new experience. They also offer tuition reimbursement and gym incentive. All my coworkers are great. Phlebotomy is addicting.

    Cons

    When you mess up a stick and the donor gets mad at you that kinda sucks. Being in Medical History gets kind of repetitive, you have to stand in the same booth for so long I much rather be on the floor being able to walk around.

    Advice to Management

    Be less stingey with the earpieces for the walkies especially if you are going to ask someone to be a zone lead you should offer them an earpiece so they can hear and understand what is being said on the walkie.

    Pros

    If was fun to meet with new people and be able to talk to them. The people I worked with in my level were really fun people to work with.

    Cons

    The management was a big problem for me. They were very immature for their job titles and were never professional about anything at work.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep personal issues and feelings away from work. This wasn't exactly the managers, but the supervisors.

    Opportunity for advancement with any or no educational background, excellent benefits

    Fix the scheduling issues
