    Pros

    Easy job, you won't work hard.

    Cons

    Not a career, not for those who can't stand downtime.

    Advice to Management

    Try educating yourselves in the art of professional ethics and maturity. Effective and industry standard management practices and laws. More laws broke by management harassing uneducated employees who don't know their rights, it was absurd at times.

    I worked at Interstate Blood Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great money for management but have to ask for it. It's a very challenging place which can give someone a great experience!

    Cons

    Constant benefit changes which creates poor access to healthcare providers. HR can be rude and make inconsistent decisions. Upper management gossips too much and can be unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with employees. Make consistent decisions. Spend more time with SOP training with employees and be more willing to spend more money on entry level employees to keep them happy and have less turnover.
