    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    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 a year)

    Pros

    heavy call volume, light data entry, resume experience, fresh faces, saving lives, reliable hours occasional OT, casual dress, managers and staff helpful, occasional paid training

    Cons

    Favoritism? Some employees who follow policy are outshined by others who do not. I have observed co workers who possess a tenure equal to or less than my own gradually work their way up into becoming top performers using various rule skirting tactics. How could this persist without being noticed by various levels of management?

    Substandard pay rate, high turnover, unnecessarily noisy: coworkers/staff chat & make distractions, no night shift pay- even for our full timers who work the entire night shift, no attendance bonus, monthly performance bonus based primarily on donor show rate (something that we ultimately have little control), voicemail galore, a handwritten form factory: be prepared to write clearly

    Advice to Management

    Improve training of upper and middle management, increase DOC hourly compensation
