I went there after reading all of these negative comments and was scared to death, but I went in and spoke to a cool dude named Brandon, he filled me in on all of the required info I would need to start the process, watched a movie, was asked key questions , and then I was in the donor room.It was all cool in the end the staff were great and you really don_t have anything to worry about.

I would encourage everyone to stop donating at this center. The employees are over worked and rude do to this. Management there sucks the talk about one another and the employees. They are belittling and condescending and have no regard or respect for the donors or employees. I have heard the black coats talk to donors as if they were dirt of the bottom of their shoes. I feel sorry for the employees that are there. They are made to work long hours don_t know when they are going home to their families. If all the donors got together and boycott DCI for about a month or two they may change the way they treat the donors and employees.

The people who own DCI should be aware that the people who staff this Greenville facility were clearly harvested from a ZOO. Rude, unprofessional, and downright mean. If I am STARVING, I will never go again.

BOYCOTT DCI FOR PAY TO DONORS AND A RESPECTABLE STAFF. ESPECIALLY MARY SHE TALKS TO PEOPLE LIKE THEY ARE BENEATH HER. NONE OF THE EMPLOYEES LIKE HER AND THE DONORS DONT EITHER.

In the last few months, each donation take an average of at least 3 to 4 hours. The wait is just too long. They claim that they pay you for your time, not pay you for your blood plasma. By that definition, it_s like saying people who use prostitutes are paying for their time, not their bodies. My point is that if they are really paying for your time when you donate, then they should pay more if you have to suffer the long 4 hours process. The actual time spent on the blood plasma machines is less than 1 hour. The other 3 hours are just sitting around waiting to be weighed, questioned, and have your finger pricked for blood test. By the way, this place is not called RPL because the company bought out DCI. :)

IF YOU DONATE, GO IN RIGHT BEFORE THEY CLOSE for the fastest service. I_m in the center right now at 11:14 am. I came in at 10:30am and I haven_t been called to be weighed yet. I_m sitting here watching the receptionists talk and do absolutely no work. As a regular donor, I can say that the staff here care nothing about your time or comfort. If you come in right before they close, they work faster and actually do their job so that they can go home. If you don_t, prepare to wait..

If anyone reading this knows which government agency I need to contact about the dangers at DCI, please reply. I donate here regularly. In the last 2 to 3 months, I have witnessed many instances where the blood cross-contamination may have taken place. While doing DCs, they use these big red plastic cans to dispose of biohazard material They cut the tubs and rinse the scissors in a little tub of solution. In the middle of the can, there_s a metal ring where the biohazard stuff goes in. The staff sometimes touch it while throwing things in and then come back to touch the donor. If someone else_s blood was already on that ring, then it ends up on their gloves. At that point, they should change to a new pair of gloves before touching my arm again. Sadly, they don_t change their gloves. I once asked the staff about this and was basically ignored.

DCI Biologicals is terrible. The staff is the absolute worst. They are UNPROFESSIONAL, LOUD, LAZY and should be embarrassed by how they conduct business. I donated 3 times. The fourth time, the technician that drew my blood did not place the needle in my vein correctly leaving me sitting on the bed for 20 minutes uncomfortable and in pain before anyone else walked by. No plasma was collected and the only way I could get paid was to let another technician stick me. My choice was not to go through it again. They rudely told me that If I do not allow another stick, I would not get paid. They also told me if I didn_t allow my blood to return (keep in mind I still have the needle incorrectly placed in my arm) then I have to wait 8 weeks to donate again. I chose to leave as I had already been at the center for about 2.5 hours. I would not recommend coming here to donate. I understand that times are hard and people need the money, but there is no need for the staff to treat donors the way that they do. if you live in GREENVILLE, NC, DO NOT VISIT THIS CENTER! They need to be shut down.

most employees are cheerful, friendly and treat donors with respect. one exception... A______ (name hidden for her privacy) seems to take pleasure in sticking the needs in as painfully as possible or perhaps she doesn_t care at all. getting needles stuck in your arm is never fun, but if all the other DCI employees can manage to do it with as little pain as possible, why does A______ always seem to stick the needle in like she hates all the donors? At first, I thought it was just me, but after chatting with many other fellow donors, I discovered that they all agreed with me. Some even refuse to be stuck with A______. Perhaps I should do that aw well.

Something must have gone seriously wrong with the way DCI Biological Greenville is operated. It used to take less than 3 hours for a donation.(from the time you sign in until you put the pay slip in the basket by the exit door) Since two months ago, the wait has dramatically increased. Sometimes it takes 1 to 1.5 hours before you get weighed. After your vitals are taken, it_s one more of of waiting before you_re called to the back and start the donation process. After your machines has completed, sometimes it takes 25 to 45 minutes before someone disconnects you. I have personally spent 4 to 5 hours. The excruciating wait is just plain unacceptable. I encourage everyone to contact DCI Biological corporate office to alert them to this situation. Strangely, DCI_s website doesn_t provide a way for your to contact corporate. Fortunately, their contact info can be accessed via FDA_s website.(note: this link goes to an official US government website)

Nice clean place. Managment is very nice except Erica who is very very rude. Staff seems overworked and underpaid. I donate twice weekly and will continue to.

This place is terrible the techs are rude and don_t take their jogs serious, this was my 2nd time donating and I promise I will NEVER go back there again until I find out they have re-staffed because your staff is so non professional I moved here from Fayetteville and this is the worst plasma donation place I have ever donated in.

I have never met a more unprofessional and insulting group of people than at DCI Biologicals. Excuse me that I am compelled to donate at this time in my not just to save a few lives, but because I need a supplement while I am out of work. For this reason, I do not expect to be asked to go sit on the toilet when they point to the bed I am to donate on or to be called a slut when I prepare to give. It seems that the staff has some superior attitude towards their donors. My thought would be that not one of them have ever thought to donate before, let alone on a regular basis. Furthermore it is for the least amount of money I have ever witnessed given by a blood bank for regular donations. They are a sad group of unprofessionals.

nice and clean place(just like a regular clinic or hospital) majority of staff very friendly(but overworked) if you don_t mind the needles, then it_s a relatively pain-free and fast process. usually 1 to 2 hours after you sit down on the recliner they compensate you for your time and the money is deposited on a prepaid debit card immediately after you_re done. their ad claims \_up to $220 per month\_ usually a little more if you donate regularly within the same month.

some employees are very nice/courteous, but there are a few who are rude/cold. from what I_ve read online, DCI Biologicals of Greenville, NC pays less than other plasma donation centers. However, they are the only one in the area, so there_s not much anyone can do about it. they pay up to $220(plus any applicable bonuse) per month. base on my own experience, I spent a total of 16 hours for the 8 donations. $220 divided by 16 is $13.75 per hour. Payment is directly deposited into a prepaid debit card. The process is relatively pain-free, as long as you don_t mind the finger prick for blood testing each time, as well the needle that goes into your arm. The facility is very clean. They keep the room very cold.

My experience with DCI was pleasant until my 3rd donation. One of the technicians missed my vein and had to search for one. He probed around until he finally had to call his supervisor. As a result, my arm is very sore and somewhat swollen. The needle mark is more visible than the other ones. The needle may have struck a muscle. My veins are not difficult to find. I_m afraid to return for my 4th donation.

The management of DCI Biologicals should be ashamed of themselves. I have never seen such an unprofessional group of people. I have seen and heard so many unsavory things from these people. There are a very select few that I will allow to stick me. The donor area in the back is relatively clean, the waiting room is filthy. Restrooms are atrocious as well. The staff and the majority of the clients are just downright ghetto. If I did not need the money each week, I would not go back. They should also look around at their competitors and re-evaluate their pay scale. I wish there were another plasma bank in this area. I_d never go back to DCI again.

Have not ever been to another plasma center before, so nothing to compare it to but-everyone there was so nice and it was not scary at all! I thought it would be some horrible experience, but the staff explained everything and answered all of my questions. I have only had positive experiences with these people. The money is why i do it obviously. But it really isnt a bad thing.
