    I worked at United Blood Services full-time

    Pros

    I really loved working with all the donors and hearing their stories as to why they think it's important to donate and who they donate for. My coworkers were amazing and we spent so much time together we felt like a family.

    Cons

    The company refuses to work with you when it comes to getting the days you need off. Hours got to be a lot, up to sixty hours in one week.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your workers want, and when you say there will be changes, MAKE THOSE CHANGES.

    I have been working at United Blood Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The work itself on mobiles is actually pretty good. You will meet tons of people and travel the entire state.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime including requirements to work on your regular days off. Your schedule can change without notice and you do not have the option to say “no”. You will end up working past your scheduled end of shift frequently. It is very difficult to manage any sort of life outside of work because of the scheduling. Management is not supportive of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Work/life balance must be addressed or you will continue to have a revolving door.

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Donors are generally very nice (as a phlebotomist, they're way better than what you have to work within hospitals). Willing to train you mostly from scratch.

    Cons

    Errors are extremely frowned upon. Good luck getting time off when you want it -- structured where everyone puts in their desired times off quarterly during a small window and then sorted out by seniority, build up of PTO, etc.
