    I worked at United Blood Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Versatile work schedules with the mobile division, or more traditional with their fixed sites.

    Long days that begin very early. Schedules were not always given very far in advance. That can be difficult if you have children.

    I worked at United Blood Services full-time

    Pros

    Very supportive management team, lots of training for Supervisor development, and pretty good compensation once you've reached the Supervisor title.

    Cons

    With any call center job, the best people aren't attracted to the doc positions which makes it difficult to manage a team of employees who have high morale. The turn over is high due to the fact that the job is and always will be repetitive and scripted. You can't really expect much with the type of job it is, it's not for everyone.
