I have been working at Octapharma Plasma full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

No two days are exactly the same.

Cons

Negligible room for professional advancement and financial compensation is well below comparable averages.

Advice to Management

Increase security measures for all field locations and don't be afraid to reward those who are directly responsible for that very significant success you continue to enjoy in a hard economic climate.

    I have been working at Octapharma Plasma full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company is an efficient one. They got rid of the paper charts and are constantly looking for easier ways to do our work. They contribute up to 6% to your 401K! That is super-awesome!

    Cons

    The company needs alot of work when it comes to employee morale. We only have 3 holidays and in severe weather we are still expected to come in. They seem to be more concerned with the equipment and plasma, than the staff. Salaries are very low.

    Advice to Management

    Step down off the pedestal and listen to the critical members of the company who work in the centers.

    I worked at Octapharma Plasma full-time

    Pros

    Always promotions because turnover is so high
    Train people with no experience
    Employee of the Quarter Program
    Suggestion box they actually read
    Flexible with scheduling

    Cons

    Could make more as a server. I was a Donor Floor Supervisor making 11.70. Haha sad.
    Inexperience phlebs cause a lot of complaints. Donors don't know that they are getting stuck by a person who has never used a needle in their life and it is frankly not fair to the donors. I will never donate plasma knowing this. As an experienced phlebotomist I would always get requests and other inexperienced phlebs always called me for help. It got tiresome.
    Had to take work home (scheduling and other things) because I had to spend my time at work helping the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced phlebotomist. Pay better so there is less turnover.
