    Pros

    Good opportunity to sharpen customer service skills. Company is clean and they are quick to train you so you can receive your raise. Good chance to move up in company. Benefits are good. You meet a lot of people in this position so it makes the day move by quickly.

    Thought they could have paid more. Can get really busy and tiring.

    Nice company growing by leaps and bounds and they really try to be an excellent employer. Pay is good and benefits as well.

    The rotating 12 hour shifts combined with the two on two off and three on two off can be a challenge.

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

    Pros

    Everything about this place is entry level. Interviews weren't bad. Good benefits and PTO.

    Cons

    Pay is severely lacking compared to other companies doing the same thing. Management has a tendency to hire and promote friends over best and most knowledgeable employees. Sweeping problems under the rug is common. Other than these, just the typical office and corporate problems like finger pointing and lack of accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay, listen to your employees and send management to classes that will teach them how to lead. Oppressive is a word many use to describe the atmosphere. There is a good reason turn over is so high.

    I have been working at Grifols full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, only need a high school diploma and can climb to middle management, on the job training, not difficult work.

    Cons

    Work every holiday. Work weekends. Very early or late shifts. Stressful job. Really crummy. Donors get angry, every error is major because it's such a finely scrutinized business by regulatory agencies. Not good work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Not a lot of coaching/development going on. You have to be really self-motivated to get anywhere with the company.
