I do not work here but as a donor, everyone is very informative and respectful. I enjoy the atmosphere greatly. Everyone is personable and friendly. They are very calm, collected and ensure that you, and everyone is safe and comfortable.

Highly regulated company to protect the Canadian Blood Supply
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 March 2018
I have been employed with Canadian Blood Services for 20 years and have held several positions. I have thoroughly enjoyed working here and have had many opportunities including working with volunteer donors since 1998. I have worked with cancer patients collecting their stem cells for stem cell transplants since 2008.

Canadian Blood Services is moving more and more toward being a blood manufacturer and less focus is on the donors and the patients. This is why I am wanting to change companies and continue to work with patients and give excellent nursing care as my RN training has prepared me to do as well as my work experience.
Staff appreciation lunches
more focus is on money and less on the donors/patients
