    I worked at Grifols full-time

    Pros

    Lab work. Healthcare. Experience. Process

    Cons

    you have to work two positions Lab tech, the folks who pre-screen candidates and also you have to remove the needle from the donor after the donation has taken place. You do everything but insert the needle as that is the phlebotomist job.

    Advice to Management

    dont advertise an Est. Salary $45k-$72k and offer $10.50 an hour to the candidate during the interview. That is low, especially when working two positions. You folks are aware of this.

    Good company & supportive as a whole, they are open minded to give ppl a career

    Cons

    At the facility leave you can be walking into hell, the training model is remedial 4 experienced health professionals and they didn't have to train in the same manner as some1 strting coming from an autozone or teachers store coming into a medical facility.... the micromanagement at my facility from an ppl when no medical experience to run a facility is an insult, u work every wkend, and u dnt get 2 days off and the scheduled days off are random and published a week out

    Advice to Management

    hire medical ppl for management and revise the training model

    Pros

    Room for growth and fabulous benefits. Lots of long-term employees and loyalty runs deep and is rewarded

    Cons

    Politics are insane. Feel like they are a bit lost strategically and it is difficult to stay on track. The division I was in re-organized every year and it was impossible to get anything done

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your knitting. Stop trying to do so much so quickly and believe in your employees and their talents. The good ones leave.
