    I have been working at Florida's Blood Centers full-time

    Pros

    The job is very fulfilling and fun. You meet new people all the time and go places if you work on the mobiles.

    Cons

    Not nearly paid enough for the stress, amount of work, and hours spent working. You often go unappreciated. It's all about collecting the blood. The donor is always right. Management never gives good evaluations, no matter how good you are.

    I worked at Florida's Blood Centers

    Pros

    Competetive salaries and benefits. Excellent 401k program. Working with the donors is very rewarding.

    Cons

    Salaried employees are expected to work in excess of 40 hours per week. Poor communication between Executive Management and the front line employees. Use to be family oriented and care about their employees now upper management only cares about making themselves look good. It appears that they have formed an alliance between Executive and middle management to form an alliance to keep front line employees in the dark. They do nothing about complaints from front line. Customer service training should have started at the top so that they would know how to treat their front-line staff (their greatest asset?)

    I have been working at Florida's Blood Centers

    Pros

    competitive 401 k program, change control processes help keep changes from being poorly implemented.

    Cons

    salaried positions are expected to "donate" many hours beyond 40/week. Some top heavy departments, less Chiefs more Indians needed.
