    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collecting blood from donors is fun and fast paced. The work you do for ARC Biomedical, is very important and you can take pride in your work helping people.

    Cons

    Pay, employee policies, management treats you as a worthless commodity. There is no work/life balance. Schedule is erratic, being scheduled late into the evening and then early the next morning. Employee turnover is high, many employees hired simply to be a body to fit scheduling purposes.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employee moral is at rock bottom lows.
