Productive place to work
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Bloomington, ILApril 11, 2014
Cons: long work days
Talecris is a fun and diverse place to work. A typical day involves meeting new faces and experiencing a fast paced work environment. Working at Talecris I learned how to use a plasmapheresis machine.
The hardest part of working at Talecris was when you meet a donor who didn't want to cooperate with the rules of the center. The most enjoyable part of – more... working at Talecris was knowing that you were doing something that was beneficial to almost everyone who uses medicine. – less

Very poor and unorganized place.
supply chain (Former Employee), clayton, ncApril 1, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: everything else
Organization of the warehouse is very poor, unskilled management, no job security. If you or your family get sick, be prepared to come to work or you will be written up. Not a very family friendly environment. Most coworkers does their job and some don't. This place is just NOT a good place to work!! Material handling equipment is very old and need – more... new ones. Everything is ran like it was 30 years ago and is very ancient. – less

Donor Processor (Current Employee), Bloomington, ILMarch 23, 2014
I take people vital signs to make sure are in the acceptable range to donate plasma. I have learned that you will deal with anger people no matter what type of job u have. Never try and deal with a angry person go get someone in management.Be professional at all times while at work with customers and employees.The hardest part is when other employees – more... don't do there job and others have to pick up after them.I have learned that you can't worry about other people and just do your job. – less

Horrible management
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Tuscalossa, AlMarch 3, 2014
Pros: 1 hour lunch breaks
Cons: bad mangement, long hard hours, messy coworkers and mangement
Your day will begin around 7 or 8am and end at whatever time.
The management team is not a team they don't get along. They will let the staff know what's going in the office. They don't care nothing about the staff at all. They will talk about staff to other staff. Its not the place its the people they are a hot mess in general. The turn over rate is – more... very high people quit before their training is over. These people at this place is just crazy. – less

Not a bad place to work at all
Donor Processor (Former Employee), Toledo, OHFebruary 15, 2014
Pros: free lunches, getting off early sometimes
Cons: very little teamwork, too much talking sometimes
A typical work day could be busy depending on the day of the week. I learned alot working there that was very helpful in. Great training. Management could do a little better with attitudes and providing team work examples. Co-workers were alright. Too many chiefs and not enough indians some days. The hardest part of the job could be the SOPs but if – more... you pay attention, they aren`t bad at all. The enjoyable part was getting off early the days we weren`t busy. Also, uniform ordering needs to be a little quicker. – less

Plasma Processor (Current Employee), Salem, ORFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Good place to get different experiences working with people. Co-workers are very supportive and easy to befriend. Managing an area exclusively with over a thousand donations per week is the hardest part.

Very fluctuating SOP and turnover of staff
Center Medical Specialist/ RN (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: spirit week, overtime
Cons: overtime, advancement opportunities
Fast paced industry with growing customer base and manufacturing culture. Staff is trained proficiently, and is allowed to use own attitudes to treat customers unprofessionally. Management is encouraging to perform countless hours with little to no positive feedback other than once a year. Pay is competitive for other nursing positions. Nursing skills – more... are decreased to counselling and assessment. – less

The Traveling was great
Donor Screening Technician (Former Employee), El Paso, TXDecember 29, 2013
Was a wonderful opportunity to travel for training. Met some great people and learned something new each day. Was eager to put in to practice at our home center, but unfortunately never got the chance. The center was bought out before we even opened our doors.

Poor management equals poor work ethics!
Employee (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCDecember 26, 2013
Pros: quitting as soon as possible!
Cons: management
Run for the hills if you are a very educated, mind your own business, and have strong work ethics type of individual. Fayetteville location ran by a bunch of women. This would be great if they didn't treat the work environment as their own personal middle school reunion. Instead of a place for professionalism. They set women back 110 years with all – more... the scheming to hold individuals back that make them feel threatened if they are more talented and intellectual then they are. I have observed that this is an environment that is created by a clique that has traveled from one center to another holding onto their old ways of doing things in a new era of medicine. Funny the saying applies, "what you do in the dark comes to the light" applies to this group. The donors that have known some of these individuals from other donation centers really put their business out often with no hesitation. My interview process was quite interesting and kind of made me feel as though the interviewing manager had NO CLUE on how to interview for the years of experience she supposedly had. Right then and there I questioned the company. The moral is extremely low and employees often look as though they could walk out at any moment. Management feeds them a bunch of BS to keep them in line. Management sends more time outside smoking then they do working (this is your lost company productivity right there), or better yet the first 5 minutes in the building the conversation is about lunch rather than the functionality of the building. Yet they expect employees to work all day (I mean literally all day) with just a lunch break. I found it odd that employees personal training binders were accessible. I always thought human resources kept your training information in a central location. I am going to end with the word "professionalism" which is the skill, good judgment, conduct, and polite behavior that is expected from a person who is trained to do a job well. Obviously something not understood, taught, or defined by many of these individuals. What a joke. – less

Why is this place open?
don't care to say (Current Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALDecember 20, 2013
Pros: 1hr lunches
Cons: long hours, inappropriate donors
This place is a hot mess! You have the Center Manager who is bipolar and very rude. Doesn't stay long hours and never helps the staff but always sending someone to do someting for her. the Assistant Manager don't do nothing but sit in the office and one Supervisor who they treat like trash and always making her do stupid things but they don't give her – more... a chance to be herself and the other supervisor who was given her job becuase she kissed up to get it but be backstabbing the staff. The donors are so disrespectful and do what they want. if you say something, they curse you out and its ok but management always preaching about customer service but they can say what they want. I wouldn't dare come to work here because you underpaid and they wanna take your money from you by sending you on longer lunched because you can't have OT. Crazy people, Crazy Place – less

Don't work for this company
Phlebotomoist (Former Employee), TallahasseeDecember 18, 2013
Pros: socializing with donors
Cons: long hours, standing 8- 9 hours straight, have to ask to go to the restroom, work holidays and weekend, job not secured and a very high turn over rate
This is not the place for single parents. This company will use you and abuse you. You will get written up if you become sick and not come in, you have to ask and wait to use the restroom, you sometimes go 5-6 hours without lunch, must work overtime, can't get off work at scheduled time. The staff and management team are very unprofessional. I've witness – more... donors getting cussed out by staff and been made aware that staff were sleeping with multiple donors. Co-workers don't work as a team, they mainly gossip about each other and about to fight on the donor floor. A lot of cattiness, drama, and if this place was a reality tv show, it would be the best show ever. DO NOT APPLY FOR THIS COMPANY, IT'S RATCHET, GHETTO, AND UNPROFESSIONAL – less

a good workplace for people without families.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKDecember 2, 2013
Pros: the manager provided lunch often.
Cons: often we didn't get our regular 15 minutes breaks or requested time off.
working 11-12 hours daily, I enjoyed meeting different types of donors. My co-workers were hard workers, so we worked well together.
