A productive Day at PPD...
Pros: Learning, Training while being in a hospital facility setting, interacting with differnt people every day from all walks of life.
Cons: no benifits, unguarenteed breaks and inconsistant hours, unguarenteed hours during holidays.
A typical day at PPD Is performing the following procedures on future study volunteers: BMI calculation, Urine collection, ECGs, Blood Pressure and Blood Collection. At PPD you learn customer service, patience, time management and team work. Management is firm but understanding, teaching us team work while guiding us individually to be independent, sufficient and confident in our performance. Working at PPD, teamwork is important! Constantly, looking out for each other to prevent mistakes, perform with integrity and professionalism. The Hardest part of the job is maintaining great customer service when study volunteers don't cooperate with the rules they've been given to follow. Personally the most enjoyable part of my job is drawing blood, training people and providing the best customer service I can give.
