Donor Center Technician (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – 1 May 2017
Not a good job to balance life outside of work. Jobs are more appropriate for individuals without family responsibilities. Management is not always clear on their procedures. Set up for failure is constant.
Training Coordinator (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – 16 April 2017
Nice place to work. A very complex Process to learn about once you learn the industry it will become very simple. I traveled a ton (my choice) I was on special project teams and thoroughly enjoyed every location I worked in.
Donor Center Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlantic Beach, FL – 10 April 2017
I've worked for Talecris for many years and had different positions. Have your skates ready. Don't take it personal. Management very helpful, use them. Just master your job (read read read your SOP) so you can move up the ladder.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Edinburg, TX – 6 April 2017
I learned amazing skills and had great mentors. hours were always guaranteed and pay was great. working at Talecris was a great experience for me. the staff was patient and amazing even when we were swamped with patients they never turn their backs on their fellow colleagues.
Certified Medical Specialist (Current Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – 3 April 2017
A great place to work! The benefits are amazing. The employees are well trained and must certify yearly in their positions. The Center has a turn over in management, however, it tends to be managers moving up into other positions. The company has strict Standing Operating Procedures, this is a positive because everyone is on the same page and when transferring to another Center it makes for an easy adjustment.
Being a nurse for this company is rewarding. You will complete predonation physicals, review lab work for abnormals, counsel donors with positive screening test results for viral markers, and many other things. It is rewarding.
Plasmapheresis is something one enjoys working in or does not. There does not seem to be a middle in this field. You work with many, many diverse people all donating for their personal reason. Specialty life saving medications are made and a sense of being part of something special is differently there.
Hope this was helpful and enjoy your adventure.
Excellent benefits and you work with many diverse backgrounds.
Hours are not cascaded and days off are often not scheduled together.
Donor Center Technician (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – 17 February 2017
checking in patients making sure that they receive there appointments. taking there vitals to make sure that they were eligible for donation. Communicating with all management staff to ensure best results.
Lead Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – 8 February 2017
a typical day at work was very busy and stressful i learned a lot about myself as a phlebotomist and learned a lot about the plasma donation process the hardest part of this job was getting along with coworkers
Phlebotomist/Designated Trainer (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – 17 January 2017
I was lucky to have such great management. It was the only reason I worked there for two years. The hours can be long, the wages are artifically low. However, there is room for growth for those without education.
Center Medical Specialist (Current Employee) – Mount Morris, MI – 14 January 2017
This is a very busy fast paced business. A typical day is very busy working with people that are underpaid with clients that are also stressed and tired. I learned that I have some OCD problems about files being returned to the right place. The hardest part of the job is turning people away that desperately need the money they would have received if they could have donated. I enjoy knowing that I am helping get the portion of the plasma to help save lives.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – McAllen, TX – 10 January 2017
It was a very fun workplace, co-workers are amazing, management was understand when you couldn't make it into work most of the time, the work environment was fast paced so time passed by fast, the job training was fast and fun.
