Qualified Nurse in NSW North Coast NSW
on 11 December 2020
Close scrutiny of performance, micromanaged.What started out as a fun and strict workplace became a stressful and strict environment that wears thin over the years. The donors mostly were great and the work did feel very rewarding.Management and some of the up and coming "Champions"of the centre became extremely painful to work with!It's a good role for a few years but as a qualified nurse you lose a lot of skills in clinical practice. It's ok perhaps to finish out your career as an older nurse but it becomes very monotonous, unless you're a rising star who is power hungry to climb the corporate ladder, and in the meantime walk all over colleagues, and demean them in a bid to win favour with those higher up in management, which seemed to happen all the time. In the end it was just too toxic to deal with all the wannabes who were power hungry and spiteful.
Registered Nurse in Donor Services

Increased demand and poor work life balanceThey only care about the donors and draw every ounce of blood, sweat and tears out of their donor services staff. They hours are extended beyond what staff can cope with while trying to achieve work life balance and maintain their mental health. I regularly see colleagues in tears because of the ridiculous workload.
Manager in Queensland

Management concernsHorrible company to work for!!! Treat their staff horrendously, including the ones that have been there for several years and dedicated a large portion of their life to the company. Cliquey management drama creates poor workplace energy and does not encourage good team morale. Continued complaints and grievances lodged about this and still nothing to show for it. Cons: Ineffective management, inside hiring of staff and friends to ensure that the hierarchy is biased, mental health affected, no work/life balance at all, horrible colleagues

Donor Services in NSW

Horrible place to work, you have been warnedWhere do I begin?Management are KPI driven and the bar is constantly being raised to unfair and un achievable targets. The management style is dictatorial and anyone who challenges the business model is pushed outManagement don’t listen and shut down any suggestions that don’t benefit the business, they lack any empathy and common sense.Rosters are inflexible and forget family friendly shifts.Staff performance measurement is highly unfair and basically you need to keep a record of what you do and what went wrong so you have an answer when asked to please explain.Training is way too quick, new starters are expected to be performing at top level 2 months after starting and if you are not performing at their level you won’t pass probation.Culture is basically if you don’t like it there’s the door (this was the exact words of an area manager)I could go on for ages but might run out of space.
