working with donors and co workers
Phlebotomist and Designated trainer (Former Employee), Fridley, MNApril 22, 2015
Had a great time working with co-workers and donors that came in daily bases. Learned how to become a leader in my phlebotomist field and was able to do some management with new phlebotomist. Hardest part of the job was to handle two reactions at one time, meaning if a donor was to get sick. But overall i enjoyed everything that I've worked hard for.

Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Saint Paul, MNApril 2, 2015
Working at Talecris I strived to be more than just a phleb I. I worked hard and moved up to a phleb II , a trainer and later became the lead on the floor! I worked with best co workers and management on a daily . You must have team work inorder to sevice 300-400 donors a day. Hard work pay off!!!

Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Fayetteville, NCMarch 30, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: shortbreaks, no shift, unorganized
While here at this job, a typical day was very busy.. but ive learned through the two years i was there to be patient, the hardest part was getting behind and not able to get caught back up.. so therefore that will leave the employees of the center not geting off and home ontime and being there later then normal.. But overall I was helping save a life, and the more donors i processed the more lives i can saved.. I was happy that i was able to help someone in need, by jus giving otheres my time..

Center Manager (Current Employee), TexasMarch 16, 2015
Hard and stressful work environment.
Regional and Corporate leadership do not give centers the resources necessary to be successful and then blame the centers. Very adversarial relationship between centers and Corporate/Regional leadership. Lack of trust both directions.

Pros: kind management staff, lots of helpful training, great pay
Cons: hours varied, never went home on time, ran into schedule issues, rude donors, rude new hires, felt like working in a high school with the drama between tehcnicians
Typical day was registering, screening, setting up to plasmapheresis machines, disconnecting from plasmapheresis machines, providing good customer service and following FDA regulations.

Great for a steping stone,Just not a career
employee (Current Employee), Atlantic Bch, FLMarch 10, 2015
Pros: get to get a lot of hands on
Cons: advancement is limited
Ive been here some time and Ive learned a lot. However its strictly business all they care about is production. Not the employees, rather, you are sick or in a comma you better come to work or get written up doctor excuse or not. As far as advancement yes you can advance if you are one of the favorites. Who needs to do thing the right way and honestly, when no one notices unless you are a favorite, Nothing you do matters. Oh yea personal life does not exist

Hard work but rewarding
Physician Substitute I (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALMarch 2, 2015
Pros: lots of money to be made.
Cons: too many hours to be worked.
Hard work but end product is rewarding. Working 60 to 80 hours per week was just too much with a family. These were required hours at that time and I was unable to do that and resigned for that reason only. Hourly wages were very nice. Management rollover was too much but staff pretty much stayed the same while I was there. Coworkers were for the most part like family and I still go back occasionally and visit. Learned alot while I was there and would not mind working there in the future.

Ups and downs
Phlebotomist/Lab Tech (Former Employee), Pensacola, FLMarch 2, 2015
This place is what you make of it. Advancement depends on if they like you or not. Very high paced and stressful. Dealing with the donors attitude is expected but for it to come from coworkers and management makes it harder to deal with.

Medical Supervisor Physician Substitute II (Former Employee), Phenix City, ALJanuary 10, 2015
An industry that compensates well because it consumes your life. You have no definite time for clocking out. You are required to miss so much of your life it is very sad. If you have children it is almost impossible to be a parent and work.

Get treated like a disposable product
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Fridley, MNDecember 23, 2014
Only good thing was the people I worked with. It was very fast paced with no room for error. You're expected to pick up on things very quickly and if you don't, you're pretty much gone. It's good phlebotomy experience though. Just wish management was more encouraging and spent less time belittling employees.

So-So Work Place
Donor Center Specialist (Current Employee), Pensacola, FLDecember 13, 2014
Pros: free lunches on occasions.
Cons: no breaks on 12 hour shifts, management whom will not work with personal lifes.
The job is simple, the customers can be amazing. The corporate employees aswell as the management at the center treat hourly employees poorly. Unable to get a fine balance with four to five 12 hour shifts, a half hour lunch, off days become a actual work day.
