The blood supply chain is something that affects everyone. Without this service (front line employees), the donors and the volunteers -collection, transportation, processing, production and distribution of safe blood products wouldn’t be possible and people would die.

The work environment is very toxic and stressful. Management is incompetent, one hand does not know what the other hand is doing. They treat their employees like disposable garbage, they set their employees up to get terminated especially now since they are trying to "save" money. A lot of favourites and nepatism...bottom line, work there and get used to stress, headaches, being treated like a child and knowing that there is a supervisor watching you like a hawk so they can fire you.

Answered

Multiple interviews. They pick internally for every job first due to unionization. Therefore one move internally begets a bumping cascade that usually results in bottom end, no advancement type jobs becoming available to external applicants.
