    They have to give a supervisor's more credit they deal with the public plus the employees.

    Management is awesome they come down on their supervisors but they supervisors deserve more credit.

    I worked at CSL Plasma full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent Health Insurance with low premium. 401(k) match.

    Cons

    Pay is poverty level. Hours are extremely long (up to 12 per day on weekend). You are on your feet about 95% of the time and you work at a fast pace constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the starting pay to at least $10/hour. Allow more breaks other than what is required by law. You pay low so employees can't afford cars or to get cars fixed. Then you fire them when their broken down jalopy won't make it or they have to walk or depend on public transportation. Broke single moms with young kids don't have a prayer of working here long even though they may be excellent employees. These employees don't have many employment options so you exploit them in my opinion. How much profit do you make off that plasma that you exploit from the poor?

    Pros

    Corporate had a good idea at what kind of culture they want, however the actual manager at this location are unable to carryout agenda of corporate.

    Cons

    Managers are out of touch with employees, and have a lack of concern for what is actually going on in the donor floor. Have an 'open door policy' but are not open to complaints. Very low pay, as a phlebotomist was paid $9.76 an hour and always had to stay over time. Management immature and unprofessional, very awkward when male manager try to make a move on their employees and donors.

    Advice to Management

    Use a more objective approach to employee complaints, rather than assume the employee which is complaining is always right. Management is a disarray, fix it.

    I worked at CSL Plasma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were no pros to this position.

    Cons

    Minimum wage pay. Terrible management who show no professionalism at all. I had to resubmit my resume 3 times before they were organized enough to process me. During training we were left for 30-60 minutes waiting in a room with nothing to do and no instruction on what was going on. They don't drug test prior to letting people donate plasma and although you're supposed to weed out the clear drug users, I saw many pass through. It was scary to even get out of my car and walk to and from the building. There are also long hours. Expect to work 12 hour shifts every other weekend and have only one day off work that week.

    Advice to Management

    A plasma center serves a vital role in medicine and managing a branch this way sets a horrible example for the entire process. I would have management retrain and learn what it means to be professional so that new hires aren't blown away at how dysfunctional everyone is. Also, an increase in pay would bring in better employees and create a more desirable appeal to the job.
