Good work environment but terrible job security.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Saint John, NB11 December 2017
Co-workers were awesome and supportive, great job and pay but job stability was non existent. Can't speak about benefits as they weren't offered to contract workers.

Driver (Current Employee) –  London, ON5 November 2017
You may be doing different jobs @ different hours on any given day. Delivering blood to a hospital or setting up a clinic or delivering blood from a clinic to the Brampton facility. I learned to follow Sop's and that you have to give your life to this company and they're still not happy.
Cons
long shifts up to 14 hours in all weather, expected to drive in winter storms, unrealistic management goals, unballanced schedule where you coud be starting from 1 am to working all night all in 1 week.
