  1. Training new employees

    Document every issue. Then cut him loose at the end of his probationary period. He sounds dangerous.
  2. SBB Online Program while Working FT

    I did mine FT while also working FT. It was brutal, but it was the fastest 12 months of my life. Takes a lot of discipline, at least 3 hours every night. You can't skip more than 2 days or you reach the point of no return. As soon as I started to feel overwhelmed, I would take a day off from work to catch up. You have NO social life during this time. However, you have a MUCH better chance of passing the test if you do it FT and then commit to take the test within 2 months of ending. Private message me if you want more info.

  9. To BB (ASCP) or Not

    I'd say go for it! Memorize the Technical Manual. Also the Antigen Facts Book. And use the BloodBankGuy website; it's amazing.
