Management communication is sporadic and received potluck. They are not receptive to constructive feedback and do not have a growth mindset approach to improving ways of working.
Pros
Free budget snacks
Cons
Very long hours

This post would have been so much better with an approachable manager. High staff turnover but salary very good.
No chance of progression. Can be long days, finishing late.

Lot of lifting and setting up equipment as it’s a mobile unit.

Lovely meeting all the people coming to donate.

Being on a mobile team doing late sessions we start around 12:30pm until about 7pm. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people everyday and learning about their reasons for donating, its nice to create that kind of relationship with donors as it makes them have a great experience and want to come back to donate in the future. Full training is all provided, based on site and in training facilities. Working full time doing around 75 working hours every fortnight, this means you work 4 days within the 7. Mostly they are weekdays but on occasion it may be a weekend (with my team specifically). It is great to know that you are directly involved in the blood donation process, and it is important to remember that on stressful days, every donation counts.
Pros
Full training
Cons
Long unsociable hours

Unreasonable goals set for the working day, which always overruns.

The people working here are amazing, but are being overworked and are underappreciated and so are disheartened.


It feels like a constant battle with planning to try get a reasonable work load for the day.

My typical work day varies from session to session which makes it interesting and different. Meeting different donors is the highlight of my job. I have learned how to manage time effectively whole still maintaining a high level of customer care in this role.
