The outside lobby was a little run down looking but the people working were friendly and helpful. The gentleman who took me back and hooked me up to everything was simply amazing. I barely felt the needle and he was very polite. Unfortunately, he said this was his last week. There was a lot of chit-chat among the workers in the back but overall they seemed to do their jobs well.

I will be moving to Columbia in one month as a graduate student at MU. I have been donating Plasma for the past six months at a plasma center in one of the larger cities in North Carolina. There is no competition here either, but we get paid a minimum of $65/week ($20 for the first visit and $45 for the second). This plasma center is always giving bonuses which are usually substantial. This month, if we donate eight times, there are bonuses which total $100. July is worth at least $360 altogether. As a new donor, our first five donations were $50 each. I am contemplating continuing this practice in Missouri, but not if the reward is so little. The other comments I_m seeing in this forum could just as easily describe the center here. Professionalism varies from employee to employee.

Those giving good ratings: your visit must have been a fluke.This is a poorly run and poorly managed facility with workers who obviously hate their jobs--you can hear them saying this out loud nearly every time you visit (that is, when they are not glancing at the tvs as they try to stick you.) Brooke and Crystal are excellent workers--hard working--and they are probably two of the few there who can insert a needle properly. We need another center here in Columbia--the competition would guarantee improvements. I know the management and the staff are aware of the problems, as well as the low customer satisfaction ratings. They just don_t care or are unwilling to change, but a competitor placing their jobs at risk just might be the impetus they need. When you go in a restaurant to eat or to a store to make a purchase, you expect a certain level of quality, whether it be by the workers or in the product itself. Why should this plasma center not be held to the same standards? They are making A LOT of money selling the plasma they take from our bodies--WAY more than the piddly $25 we get (which, by the way, is decreased by all the charges we entail using the card they have chosen to pay us with.) We should not have to be afraid of workers messing up our veins nor be subjugated to bad attitudes and LONG wait times that are caused by inefficient workers who stop and chit chat, instead of doing their jobs. Even if they are smiling while they infiltrate your vein or sound cheerful and friendly as they move at a snail_s pace, poor performance is just not acceptable--nor is the management that allows it to happen. By the way, in cities where there are more than one facility, donors are often paid up to $100, due to the competition. A manger told me last week that this center has lowered the price for what they will pay because they don_t have to pay much anymore--too many people are having hard times and are seeking additional ways to increase their revenue, like donating plasma. He said that this pool of new donors means they don_t have to keep paying what they did before. Corporate feels that even though this decrease has upset donors, it won_t hurt their business because people are too desperate right now (with the economy) and will still be willing to sell their plasma at the lower price. Bottom line: if the few bucks you get from donating means the difference between having food on your table or starving, then by all means, it_s worth donating here. If not, no amount of money is worth the headache you_ll get from dealing with these guys on a continuous basis.

After reading the comments left by others, I admit I was a bit worried about going to Plasma Biological Service. After going, it_s easy to see the bad reviews are incorrect. As with any place there are pros and cons. Cons: Sometimes there is a long waiting period. Whoever owns the place needs to bring it into the 21st century, get some machines in there for donors to answer all those questions electronically and let the staff confirm the answers and do what they need to to get clients processed for donation. That would lessen the waiting time, let them get more donors in, and make people a bit happier. Can be a little pissy about cell phone usage, can_t play games, surf the internet, or check facebook while you are there. Pros: Staff, for the most part, are awesome. Almost everyone from the front desk through the donation process is wonderful. Of course, everyone has a bad day, but for the most part, they are an awesome group of people! They all know what they are doing, they try their best to put you at ease. They don_t roll their eyes too much at some of the more incredulous stories some clients tell. Really, trust fund, what the hell are you doing selling plasma. Get a grip, no point in trying to impress anyone. Obviously we are all broke and need money or we wouldn_t be there, no point in trying to be someone you are not! Anyway, the place is always clean, when they are slow, they break down the machines and clean them thoroughly. The employees do the best they can with what they have to work with. I would recommend going here if you need to. Aaron, Connie, Kadie, Katie, Brooke, Kizzie, Jamaica, Jeremy, Billie Jo, and all the others whose names I can_t think of right now, are great. Thanks for being so awesome everyone!

I_ve never donated plasma elsewhere before (donated blood a few times at various Red Cross drives a few years back), however I have never had any serious problems with them. The staff is friendly and kind, the facilities are clean, and the pay is good. There sometimes can be a wait depending upon when you go, but that is merely the limitation of a facility of its size serving a town the size of Columbia. I_ve only been stuck incorrectly on one or two occasions, and that was because I consented to being stuck by someone who was still in training. Overall, this is a fine facility with a friendly and competent staff.

After Donating at another place in another town this place was a dream. Everyone I have ever dealt with has been super polite and helpful. I guess I have what you might say \_Hard to Stick\_ veins, and they are some who granted are not the my favorite to stuck by. I ask to have a nurse or the employees that I am confident in to stick me right with out attitude or hard feelings (in fact i was once used as a training tool of how to do it right). I just don_t understand all these hate filled comments about this center. I suggest these people try going to another facility run by a different company and you will REALLY rethink their perspective. It is good way to make a extra couple of bucks while catching up on some reading. plus I kept my head down was polite to the employees and now they know me and I never have a problem being ignored.

Today was my first time attempting to donate plasma. Upon entering this facility I first noticed the waiting room was packed with nasty donors. The guy working the sign-in counter was so rude that I turned around and walked out. I make better money working than waiting \_3 to 4 hours\_ only making forty bucks or whatever it is you get. I_d rather not be in the presence of health-care workers that hate their jobs and got into the field for the wrong reasons. I do not recommend this facility what-so-ever. Instead, I went across town to the American Red Cross and donated whole blood on my own time in no time. It feels good to save up to three lives being treated respectfully and appreciated opposed to even so much as stepping foot into this hole-in-the-wall.

If I was honest i would say that the training of the staff is retarded, they cant seem to find a vein. Brooke IS THE BEST she should be training thepeople who stick you, but they dont care. Warning if the use the back of the Iodine stick to mark the spot on your arm , stop!!!!!!! i have been watching the ones who use this method have more infiltrations daily . It has become a 50/50 chance they get it right. I go to make some cash not have someone use me as a pin cushion

the employees at this donation center, overall; are rude, foul-mouthed, unsanitary (a nurse once dropped her phone i the toilet, 3 or 4 people went to try to get it, and went right back to work!), unprofessional, uncaring, slow, and mostly disgruntled. if you feel like being confounded, frustrated, physically injured, and ignored, then please by all means, go waste your life making a drug company richer.

I went today to donate plasma for my first time ever. I_m a college student and have been needing some extra cash to get by and thought this would be a win-win situation to make some extra money. I was beyond skeptical of going to this place because of all the previous reviews but I promise you that this place is legit! I have no complaints...not one. I don_t know where these other donors went but it certainly wasn_t this place. First of, yeah, there_s gonna be a waiting period. Duh, the world doesn_t revolved around you. I had a beyond excellent experience with the staff. Beyond friendly and helpful. Towards the end of my donation, I got a really light-headed and felt as though I was gonna pass out. This was not because of their doing whatsoever, my body just can_t handle the donation process. It did the same thing 4 years ago when I tried donating blood. Anyways, I started getting really nervous, hot, and almost passed out and as soon as I asked for someone to come over, I had about 3 or 4 nurses there to help get my body temp back to normal..grabbing wet rags, elevating my feet, and stopping the machine. I felt 100% satisified with their service and still made $40 for donating the first time. I won_t be going back, but that_s because of my personal reasons of not being able to handle it. The staff is great! :)

Lazy employees. Wasn_t so bad in the beginning with the vein punctures but now it seems like it happens at least on one arm each time. Went in one week and saw 2 prospective employees being interviewed--the very next week had the same 2 individuals stick my arm and puncture my veins. Scary when untrained workers are put on the floor with inadequate training and given free reign to butcher your arm!!! I am currently deferred but the incident that resulted in the deferral involved two vein punctures. The 2nd puncture was done by the trainer and my blood couldn_t be returned because once the machine started beeping it took her over ten minutes to check my arm even after several workers kept trying to get her over there and my blood had clotted by then. When I first started coming to this location over a year ago, this trainer (who hadn_t been promoted to trainer yet) was the laziest of the employees at that time and still is. How a business that promotes the worst of the bunch remains in business is beyond me. And come on, giving 4 or 5 stars or great reviews because you find the workers hot is crazy...use your brain, guys!!!

Donor: Be Warned!!
Date: 2012-03-28
Friendly? Sure, if you never complain about the butchering or unprofessional attitude and behavior. They get a lot of complaints and they do not receive them well. And management certainly does nothing about any of the problems reported!! The workers love watching their television programs on the big screens while their supposed to be sticking the needles in your arm (had several try to glance up and keep watching while inserting the needle) so be forewarned!

Didn_t even get a chance to donate because I was so disgusted by the attitude of the front desk people. Extremely rude. $40 bucks isn_t worth it. Gay \_man\_ at the front desk got an attitude with me instantly when I said I didn_t have my social security card (was not told I needed one when I called in advance, just told to bring a license) He goes \_I don_t understand you kids (granted he was probably the same age as I am) these days, not carrying around a social security card.\_ Hmm, excuse me?! No one thinks to carry around a social security card in their purse nowadays. You have a license, passport, student ID, etc that have been effective forms of identification in my 23 years of life. Turned around and walked out before I went off on him for being so disrespectful.

Donor: Please pay attention

I know a person who has worked at this location and it is true that the work gets passed off onto others while they stand around and yak and gossip- and it_s management_s fault for not coming in and paying attention to their workers even the trainer gets by with this, what kind of example is that??!!

I can somewhat understand the position of the donors who are posting that it is easy money and therefore that there should be no complaints--SOMEWHAT. But I have seen the workers act unprofessional every single visit over the past two years I have been donating and it is never just one incident or one employee. From the moment I walk in there until the minute I leave, I witness employees stopping their work to engage in non-work related conversations. It is one thing to talk while working but altogether another to stop your work just to gossip or talk about your plans for after work. I time and time again witness employees watching the TV as they walk toward a patient and trying to watch it while they are supposed to be setting up the equipment. This slows them down. The time can get rather long, but it is NOT always due to an increased number of donors. It has taken me the same amount of time with 20 donors in the waiting room as only just depends on if you are unlucky enough to donate on the days when only the unprofessional workers are scheduled. No, not all the employees are like that...but an alarming number are and they engage in that behavior all day long. Stopping work to talk over and over throughout the day adds up and that is why it takes so long for everyone to donate. I am not the only one who has witnessed this. I hear the same complaints from most donors and never have I heard center employees described as efficient by anyone. I have managed teenagers at fast food restaurants who are not always known for their work ethic but I have never witnessed the amount of standing around and talking while there is business to attend to as I have here. Yeah, it is an easy $25 for two hours but when you weigh in the unprofessionalism and the problem with parking (there is no parking nearby that will allow you to park the entire length of time it takes to donate)it soon becomes not worth it. And we all need to understand that bringing this to the attention of management is a good one (especially a business) will change unless enough people come forth with their complaints. Additionally, turning a blind eye to acts of unprofessionalism occurring at this rate only allows standards of behavior across all areas to deteriorate until one day there is no professionalism left. Again, one or two incidences can be overlooked but this is so widespread and unlike any business I have ever encountered. I have found the actual management to be quite good at their job at the center but for this to occur over and over again makes me question why management allows it and whether or not they respect their donors enough and feel the donors deserve professional workers to attend to them.

The staff overall are very professional and courteous. I_ve been going there almost 4 years and have never had a problem (ie. an infiltration). Currently(8-23-11)they do have a minor problem at the beginning of the day as there are inadequate donor processing staff present at 7am and you can expect to be there longer than usual. Over the past 4 years it usually takes two hours maximum from the time you sign in until you get paid; however, lately it has creeped up to closer to 3 hours if you arrive between 7 and 8. Still it has been a lifesaver for me as I have been injured and unable to work for the past year. Thanks to all the staff, especially Brooke, Destiny, Jess, Jen, and last but not least Joey.

i have had an awsome first experience here. i find some of the workers here to be a little rude but what can you expect... they dont make very much, they have to pay meeter parking, and im sure the customers they work with arent arent always pleasent. the least that the company could do for them is get them yearly parking permit somewhere.

First let me make it clear I have been in the medical field for over 20 years. I am just a DSP but have worked in hospitals,clinics,and in private homes. I have dealt with all kinds of professionals and owned businesses. I donated for over a year at this center and the first time I complained and told the truth I was deferred. I simply told the receptionist that in the three hours she expected me to wait was ridiculous and gave her an example of why this place was so slow and the things I have seen. They defered a hard working HEALTHY person because of an honest complaint but let through one person with open sores on there arms and another bum who stunk so bad and bothered everyone in the waiting room so much he was warned three times! As a business owner I have laid on that couch and witnessed so many things I would fire staff for it makes my blood boil. So lets discuss why when alarms are going off and everyone is waiting the staff is watching a football game or whatever sport is on the screens. Lets discuss why one person was watching TV and hooked me up and later it took me three times to get someones attention and not even then until I said loudly I feel blood going down my arm. When i left that day I HAD THREE holes in my arms, two in the arm they started with and one in the arm I completed my donation with. The next visit I inquired why I had been stuck twice in one arm only to get an I dunno that_s not aloud. I told them listen when i got to my car and checked the arm they started on there were two punctures in the arm and both bleeding. still no good reply was given. I did not donate for the money as I had 2 jobs at the time but the money was a help. After a big run around that scared me so much I spent 3 days in the hospital just to find out I was healthy and 3 hours with the centers Dr. and found out I was perfectly fine to donate if I made sure my blood pressure was not to low, I was told I had to be reworked as a new doner and should come back another day because this would take over 3 hours. I tried to come back several more times always to get the it will be three hours or more. The last time i wen_t I told them that it is ridiculous that there staff did not do an efficient job and were more interested in watching TV, going to lunch and gossiping rather than getting people out in a timely manner and I left and did not go back for a very long time frustrated with the whole situation and feeling like staff did NOT CARE because they could do as they please after all they hold the money! I went in today and the first thing I was told at 11:58 AM was it will be a 5 hour intake and I told them fine I will wait and then I was called back and told I was differed last time because of my behavior at last visit. Why wasn_t I told that day and WHY was I deferred? I did not scream, cuss or behave irate. I simply showed my displeasure at the way This place is ran and told them honestly that they were slow and being in the medical field what I could do in 3 hours time and that it was ridiculous with all the nurses available and three people in the waiting room before me it should take so long. As a person not desperate enough I would not be honest I guess the best thing is to defer me. As someone who may need plasma I am sure I would try everything except getting plasma from a company whose elite base clients are the desperate people who need money so bad they will take any kind of treatment to get it.I asked for numbers to call and complain to regional and was given a number that was answered may I say like it was a private number. The machine did establish if this was a company I was calling or the local soccer mom and I have not gotten a call back. I wonder how a company exhibits any kind of quality control when those with complaints are dismissed!???????

I_m not sure why there are negative comments. Yes, it can be slow.. Yes, the nurses are sometimes confusing and expect you to know what_s going on. But you_re getting PAID for this. Its slow because of all the people that are there and many of them come multiple times a week. Today was the first time i donated, and the nurses anwsered any question I had, and even though my donation process took 93 minutes, i still was happy with my service.

Had a small problem at first(was with previous place I donated)once we got it cleared up everything went well. As a new donor to this facility I found that this place is on par with the better places. It is clean, the personnel I came into contact with are friendly and knowledgeable. The first time they wouldn_t let me donate because my iron was too low and it would have been bad for me, which makes me feel safe in the fact that they care about the health of the donor not just about the donation. So I am off today to make my second donation of the week, I would recommend this facility to any who wish to donate. I would have given 5 stars but parking is an issue a 4 block walk from the nearest free parking is a bit much after donating.

I have lived in 3 different cities during my life and donated in all 3 cities. This facility and staff were by far the best I have ever visited.

It not only helps others who are in need, but you get paid to do it!

When the Columbia Plasma center was near the MU campus, the staff seemed to like your job better and you did not have to pay for parking. I would give the overall service performance above average, (4). Now that the Plasma center is downtown the employees are less satisfied on how they are treated to the point they seem to take it out on the donors. I have donated about five years now and the company seems to treat their employees less and less with respect and proper pay. I believe the morale of it employees get worse every week and has finally affected the donors. I never had to wait more than two hour ever at the old center but it seems that I wait longer and longer to get in and donate plasma. I never complained even if it did go over two hours a few times but recently it has been more and more frequent that you are in there three or more hours and that is just wrong. Yes I know a recession is going on and more people are coming to donate but I do not see more staff hired or any supervision / on the staff especially the new staff. I am a supervisor myself and my blood pressure goes up just watching some on these young kids that are suppose to be working but are so slow that my Grandmother could out do them any day or night and she is 84 years old! The combination of the staff not caring anymore, the staff worn out from being so under staff for so long that they refuse to work any faster than a pace it should be. So all this boils down to a company who does not respect or care about their employees or donors! The few good staff get over work because they care and then you get staff who take an hour to just locate a folder, that is by the way not been misplaced, but is just slow and does not care! This guy should be fired and hire some one who does care and can contribute as a team player, instead of a dead beat! I got so upset the last time I was in that I just was not going to pay for another parking ticket for inadequate worker! We can not leave after we sign in so we can go back to are parking meter and put more change in. So I get $25 and then turn around and pay $5 for a parking ticket. Yes I like the money but I also do it for the people who need the plasma unlike some of the donors that I question should or should not be donating because of how they treat their bodies. I just really disappointed in the Plasma Bilogical Center that has very little if any Service to the staff or doner but the word service is part of their company_s name! I would like to keep donating but not under the present conditions it is just not enjoyable anymore to be a donor!

The first time you donate you get 35 dollars and it took about 3 hours to get checked out and donate, after the first time it takes less time and you get a little less money. Donating the plasma is not that bad, and it doesn_t make you too tired because they put your platelets back. I haven_t had any bad experiences with any of the workers, and if I did I wouldn_t care. As long as they do their job, and I get money for donating my plasma then I am fine. The only thing I don_t like is how you have to go all the way there just to see if they are open because they don_t always answer their phones and they don_t have an answering machine or a website where you can check the hours of operation, so here they are: Monday-Thursday 8am to 7pm, Friday 8am to 4pm, and Saturday 8am to 2:30pm. Arrive several hours early for your first time, or you might not get in.

Not a bad place really. Some of the staff are a little snobby but overall they are great people. The wait time is fair and the process usually takes about 2 hours or so. And don_t forget to bring a jacket too, because after they draw the plasma they inject saline at room temperature and you get very cold.

never been there but called to get some details on compensation: they pay $30 for each of the first two visits. after that it varies by your weight. At 160lbs, I_d get $25 all the time (my guess is that the second donation in each week would be $5 higher or lower if you weighed more or less than 160. that_s a typical arrangement) They work on walk-in basis only :-(

I actually haven_t donated yet...just wanted to comment that the Plasma Center is at a different location now. It is on Walnut between 9th and 10th streets.

I_ve been here at least ten times or more. You should know it is very cold in the office and some of the people making donations are not always well kept. Furthermore, my boyfriend got two veins blown out in one day there due to improper needle insertion (painful)and he goes there weekly and never had it happen before. You aren_t going to make a lot of money, probably not enough to fill your car with gas.

This place is great. Every one is awesome, Another great things is all the ladies that work there are nice and good looking and the guys are awesome. Expect a casual but professional setting. The Phlebotomist are great at what they do. My arm has never been messed up. I asked and if you are wondering they are not nurses they are just trained on the job, just so you know cause I just assumed they had some form of schooling, but don't let that detour you cause i have never had a nurse stick me as well as they do.
But i have been donating there for a very long time and figured I would share my knowledge. P.S. Please be nice to the staff I almost consider them friends I see them so much and they really don't get paid enough, I think I over heard one of them say $8 dollars an hour. I would never mess with so much blood for that little. and if you think the service is great do like im doing and leave a comment card or tell them.
My philosophy is you never want to make a person that is about to poke a needle in you arm angry.. I would tell them this in person but I'm shy and I always feel odd giving compliments. Thanks Plasma center guys for being so cool.
