    Pros

    Flexible schedules. Management is nice. Easy work in general with the ability to cross-train. You're always moving if you're the type who likes to stay busy.

    Cons

    Hard to tell when you'll leave if working third shift. Leadership plays favorites sometimes. Always on your feet except for a few breaks.

    Pros

    Pay, advancement opportunities, medical field, the feeling of your job having purpose because your work helps save lives. Exposure to the bio therapy world.

    Cons

    Although I’m in management, other production area position can be a grind day after day, dealing with donors. For reception and the donor floor positions, it can become a grind day after day

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent! Reward your good workers and be consistent with reprimands for poor workers

    Pros

    Great to meet new people, eventually feels like a second family. Some management is better understanding then most.

    Cons

    The long work hours suck, 6am-8pm and those are the company hours, doesn't mean 8pm is the time we get out. We stay til last donor leaves the building. We have no life outside of this job. Especially for parents that don't even get to see there kids for bed time or after school to help with homework. Employees who been there longer have there set schedule so they don't open or close they have 8-4 or 9-6 must be nice . Management is some what unprofessional due to talking or making fun of other employees like no one's around to hear them conversate. Too may woman work her need more men around to balance all the emotions and crazy

    Advice to Management

    Hire more men

    Pros

    They worked with my full time school schedule which is really all I could ask for. Can look good on your resume if you’re in medical field

    Cons

    Always under staffed and management is spread pretty thin. Workers turn over quickly because of low hourly wage and pathetic raises

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people

    Pros

    They bring food on occasion, if you aren’t full time you aren’t required to on holidays but can sign up for occasionally

    Cons

    You can’t have a life outside of the location. They want you to work when they want you too, it’s hard to get the days off you need because the scehedule is made 2 weeks in advance and sometimes they don’t put you to be off. If you need to leave work early or call off they give you a point to many points and you’ll be fired. They show favoritism with employees who’ve been working there longer, and if you are working close you won’t get off at 7 because you have to work into the last customer is gone which is at like 8-9 on the reception and 9-11 on the donor floor. If you want a life I don’t recommend it

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff
