I'm here to tell you- this place sucks. If you go here after reading all of these negative reviews, you will deserve what you get because all the negative reviews are spot on. If there was a 'terrible' button, I would have hit that. I used to spend $8-12 a day to come down here from concord twice a week and would wake up very early to do so. Out of the ten times in the past six months I've gone, I've been deferred five times. I'm in perfect health, what could be wrong with me? They would tell me 'Oh your pulse is too low' or 'Your temperature is too low'- after screening me questionably. Then it hit me- I'm not ghetto like everyone else in their center. The donors are all either junkies or thugs, the staff lies to your face and the pay only justifies donating here if you live in Charlotte. I gave this center not one, not three, not five, but ten chances in recent memory. Each time, I was reminded why I had not been coming regularly. The worst time had to be when I needed a physical because mine had expired from the last year, and they made me wait five hours. I was not allowed to donate that day because I did not 'get around' a rule they had posted (they had wanted me to sneak out and get something to eat when THEY were making me wait). The next time, when I was allowed to donate, I was treated as a return donor. Two weeks later, people in the same position that I had been in when I had started back donating again were making $50 a donation. Talecris plasma clearly neither needs nor wants donors because they compensate them poorly and treat them like crap. If you go here after reading this, you will most likely experience the same thing everyone else did. I repeat myself- this place sucks.

Story
Tagline
A Christian Socialist
Introduction
I am currently on a search. Throughout my life I have been interested in three intellectual traditions: The material and worldly focus of Socialism. The search for a deep, abiding knowledge of he nature of reality inherent to Buddhism. The desire for some salvation and redemption from this hell which is life. This search is my focus right now.
