    I have been working at CSL Plasma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and days off with your pay and you make friends. It’s a cool place, you work hard and make lots of friends. It’s definitely a good job that you can have for many many years or if you just need a temporary job it is great for that as well. The staff is very kind and helpful. I really like my manager and my group leader: they are awesome people.

    Cons

    Kind of a starting pay. Other than that there are no changes cons. It isn’t a job that you specifically go get a degree for.

    Pros

    Hopefully you get to work at a center where you have amazing cowokers. A lot of the donors are nice. You meet a lot of new people. Depending on the Center you work the opportunity for promotion is high

    Cons

    Not the best pay for donor support techs and phlebotomists. Favortism with management. Management didn’t care about training new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t play favorites. Be fair. Have good morale.

    Pros

    Not third shift. A few good people. Decent hours. Pay is okay. Convenient location outside of downtown area. Donors are great.

    Cons

    Management doesn't discipline employees who are doing badly. They advance undeserving and partially incompetent people. Employees do as they please. No direction. No clear set of rules.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being scared to fire people. Actually follow through with discipline. Actually watch what's going on in production instead of assuming complaints are invalid. Interview better people.
