Friday May 20th i had a terrible experience with the so called floor supervisor Jordan Prince and Manager Shannon. They are both extreamly rude, no professionalism at all. All the other employees are great they have always been very professional. But every time Jordan Prince is there she always has an attitude and complains the entire time i'm there. It seems she hates her job or at least that's what you would think. After having an issue with Jordan i asked to speak with the manager who is a woman named Shannon. She wasn't any help at all. She would not listen to me and my concerns with Jordan. She was rude and could care less about what i had to say. The two of them need some better customer service. And Jordan might need to find a new job since she hates her current one so bad, The staff doesn't like Jordan either. And its obvious they cant go to there manager Shannon with any concerns. She's no help at all!

The only reason I don't give it a one is because of the customer service. I have been there five and each time its something. The power goes out routinely. Once the system went down. Each time I am there an hour longer than necessary because the staff moves slow. Like I said the workers are not CE. But I don't have time for them to get to me in a non timely fashion
Tips & Advices
One study cited by the National Institutes of Health found only 1.2 percent of blood donors experienced any kind of adverse reaction from giving blood. The most common side effects from giving blood are relatively mild:
  • Lightheadedness upon standing is common. Donors are encouraged to rest for at least 15 minutes after the procedure while drinking water and eating a small snack. Some donors find they become nauseous after the procedure, but this should subside quickly.
  • Pain and some bruising around the injection site is common. Pain should be mild, but it is normal for bruising to persist for several days.
  • For a few days afterward, the loss of blood may induce dizziness or feelings of weakness when performing strenuous activity. Donors are advised to avoid physical exertion for 24 hours after the procedure, and to be cautious when exercising for the following week.
Very rarely, blood donors may vomit or faint immediately after the procedure. This is generally benign and will resolve itself within hours. Donors should seek medical attention if they experience significant pain or tingling in their arm and around the injection site, or if bruising does not subside within a week. If a donor shows signs of a cold or flu in the days following the procedure, they should call the blood center since this may make the blood sample unsafe to use.
By definition, blood donation is voluntary and done without compensation. Some blood banks do offer cash or other rewards for giving blood. Whether donors are paid or not, blood banks typically serve as intermediaries between blood sources and hospitals. Even voluntarily donated blood is usually tested, separated and sold to medical services for use in blood transfusions and other procedures.
Blood donations are considered safe when performed by trained professionals who follow all the necessary procedures. In healthy donors, side effects are generally mild (see below), and serious complications are rare.
Different organizations have their own restrictions on who is eligible to give blood. The most common requirements stipulate donors must be old enough to give legal consent (17 in most states) and should be in good physical health. Most organizations prohibit donations from people with diseases that can be transmitted through blood, such as HIV and hepatitis. Beyond that, organizations may prevent donations from people who have traveled to or lived in certain countries where there is a greater risk of disease. There might be additional restrictions in place as eligibility for blood donation is at the sole discretion of the organization collecting it.
Blood centers typically  allow eligible donors to undergo a whole blood donation once every 16 weeks (56 days). Donations through apheresis are allowed every seven days, up to 24 times per year.
