- Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center Inc19.Nov 2017
Very committed to providing a safe product to hositals
Support from management
I had a great supervisor! She always went to bat for us if someone had a problem with something our department did
Team work in my department was great. We all worked together to get the job done on time
Freedom to work independently
Working on 3rd shift there was plenty of freedom to work independently
Could use a little work in this area. Things didn't get communicated between departments and shifts
Attitude towards older colleagues
There are a lot of older workers there. They hire older adults. One of the very few in the area that do so.
You were always encouraged to apply for other jobs within the company
Overall compensation for your work
We were given yearly reviews and raises
Office / Work Environment
Noisy. The way the building is designed is like a big barn. You can hear what everyone is saying in the whole building.
One of the reasons I left. Worked 3rd shift and I never knew when I would be getting off. Plus a lot of the mandatory meetings were geared more toward 1st shift
It seemed like there was less and less for our department to do because of system upgrades
My work was very challenging. It was up to us to make sure the blood was safe to be processed
Suggestions for improvement
- Better communication for sure.
What I like about the company
It was a friendly environment. My supervisor was wonderful. They give older workers a chance.
