    I have been working at Bonfils Blood Center full-time

    Pros

    The missions is amazing; to know you are working for a company that really saves lives is awesome. Bonfils also gives a lot of opportunities to those with no college education; I have seen some many phlebotomists create a lifelong career .

    Cons

    Salary employees are asked to do too much with no additional compensation. There is no or for some very little work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    In the last few years, senior management seems to be more and more out of touch with lower level employees. Invest in employees and they will invest in the company.

    Pros

    The mission is fantastic! Participating in moments where humans are saving each other is priceless.

    Cons

    Management doesn't take people into consideration when scheduling.
    Numbers based and driven and it shadows their ability to see the larger picture with their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees not just the numbers.

    I worked at Bonfils Blood Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working here was the best experience I ever had with a job. It was very rewarding and fun. The people I worked with were great and my boss was amazing.

    Cons

    The only downside to working here was there wasn't very much room for advancement and also the pay was decent but ultimately I left for better pay.

    Pros

    Good culture, local leadership is in-touch, focused on problem-solving and teamwork.

    I have been working at Bonfils Blood Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mission driven organization. Good people work here for great reasons. I came from private industry and haven't regretted moving to non-profit. I am challenged in my position and have a great supportive team. All jobs have ups and downs. This is a place where you get out what you put in! A great opportunity in healthcare for lots of job types. Paid training for phlebotomists with no experience required.

    Cons

    Benefits are good but plan used to be more comprehensive. Paid holidays limited compared to private company's but normal for healthcare.

    Advice to Management

    evaluate the market in the area. Denver is bustling and a high growth area with lots of opportunity. don't lose quality employees to the market! This is a great place to learn and grow.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay is ok

    Cons

    Everything. Managment is condescending and rude. They do not care if you have a family. They believe that work comes before all else. You are nothing but a number to them. They make up lies so they can have reasons to fire employees. Lots and lots of favoritism. Staff is can be very childish it makes high school look like a cake walk when it comses to spiteful gossip and vendictive people. Always whatch your back here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to your employees needs and maybe your turn over wouldnt be so high. Stop playing favorits. Supervisors should not be hanging out with regular staff.

    I worked at Bonfils Blood Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Being part of a team who have the potential to improve lives through blood donated by a caring and compassionate community.

    Cons

    Shady organization.

    Recruiters will leave you a message, and only identify themselves by 1st name, without title or reason for call. If you're a regular blood donor, and someone identifieds themselves only as an employee of Bonfils, your mind goes to "What could be wrong with my blood/me?"; because it's easy to imagine it's a nurse or pathologist who needs to notify you of something grave.

    I had to run through a gauntlet of people before discovering the person who called was a recruiter.

    Advice to Management

    TRANSPARENCY.

    If you're encouraging recruiters to conceal their full name, and title, and context of why they're calling, what else are you concealing from the public?

    I worked at Bonfils Blood Center full-time

    Pros

    The mission of the company is sound, and they try very hard to uphold that.

    Cons

    Senior management is condescending and will actually lie to accomplish their objectives. Be very careful and watch your back at all times. Always have your resume ready, because you never know when the ax is going to fall.
