    Pros

    Upbeat supervisors pleasant co-workers contests

    Not enough training in Blood Banking or BS400's. The whole room panicked when we had to do Walnut Grove because we didn't know how to switch over.

    If there are changes in Bs400 donor status (such as tattoes) le us know before writing us up for something we were not aware of.

    I worked at United Blood Services full-time

    Pros

    I learned a lot from this company. It was a great place to work, with many amazing people. I have gained some life long friends from this company. They have great benefits and many perks.

    Cons

    Some of the upper management does not always like to be held responsible for some of their long time employees. However, they do seem like they want to assist new employees adjust to the large workload and sometimes high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    If I could give the management any advice it would simply be to keep an open mind and listen to all employees concerns.

    I worked at United Blood Services full-time

    Pros

    On the job training. Better than minimum wage pay. Meeting new people everyday, some nice workers.travel can be nice but really gets in the way of having personal life

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. supervisors are corrupt. Hours are ridiculous, the backstabbing is ridiculous, and there is no appreciation for a job well done. This place sees the glass as half empty and tends to focus on the negatives. They have their favorites, the chosen ones, the lucky ones who can do no wrong. they use attendance to fire people yet keep others who have worse attendance working. Seen a lot of really good people leave. No breaks long hours standing. severely overworked. hours all over the place

    Advice to Management

    you need to get rid of the goofy supervisors who sweep the bad deeds of their favorites under the rug
