Company Culture

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

Teamwork

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

Internal Communication

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.

Career Development

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.

Work-Life Balance

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

Job Security

It seemed like there was less and less for our department to do because of system upgrades

Challenging Work

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.

Company Culture

While the company itself promotes a great resource, those working behind the scenes are incompetent.

Support from management

Management never acknowledged any positive thing I did, but was more than happy to write a MER (minor error report) for ANYTHING. If you forgot to cross a T or dot an I, you got a MER. These were absolutely ridiculous.

Teamwork

It's every man for himself in this department. They told me day one to not trust anyone because they will throw you under the bus. How mature.

Freedom to work independently

While you did get to process orders on your own, someone was always there to call you out on mistakes.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They still made older employees do the same job as younger ones and still treated them poorly.

Career Development

You have to apply and interview for everything, even for the same job in your department (i.e., a part time driver applying for a full time driver position). And then they played favorites.

Overall compensation for your work

While the pay seems decent, you have so much to do that it doesn't compensate. They give you an extra dollar to work on weekends, but that means you have to work a full 8 hour shift BOTH Saturday and Sunday. The pay is not worth the time away from family.

Work-Life Balance

No half-shifts or flexible schedules. As a non full-timer, I did not like having to do 8 hours a day, especially on weekends. There should have been more diverse schedules.

Job Security

Rumors that the company is being bought out by a bigger blood center had people worried about their jobs.

Challenging Work

Packing up blood products did not stimulate your brain.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs to take management classes and actually treat employees with respect.

What I like about the company

They did start you on your 401k right away so you were able to earn quickly. Personal time added up; after about 2 months I already had a few days I could take off.

What I dislike about the company

Disorganization, backstabbing, incompetent management.

Teamwork

Just know if they are gossiping about your co-workers they are gossiping about you also. How can you work as a team in such a negative toxic environment.

Freedom to work independently

Always watch your back.

Internal Communication

No one really knows the answer but likes to pretend they do. Everyone likes to play "boss."

Office / Work Environment

Back stabbing gossiping and name calling from co-workers to management

Job Security

You will quit before you need to worry about that I promise.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The person at the top needs to really start to look at the management below them and start cleaning house. You have such a high turnover rate for a reason, maybe you should start speaking to those quitting and taking their reasons serious. If you could keep your people you wouldn't have to have a new training class every two months.

What I like about the company

Saving lives and meeting donors.
