Before you apply
How do I apply for a job?
Start by gathering the information you’ll need for your online application:
- Contact information including home address, phone number, and email
- Qualifications (such as your education, licenses and work experience, including dates)
- Your résumé, if you want to attach it as a file
- Social Security number and date of birth
When you find a job that interests you, click "Apply Online" in the job details. If this is your first time applying for a position, select "Click here to create a new account" to create your profile. If you've applied for another job with us before, just log in using your email address and password.
Note: The sensitive, personal information you enter, including your Social Security number and date of birth, is confidential. It won’t be shown on any application forms, so hiring managers can’t see it. If you are offered a position, we’ll use your information for a background check only.
You will see a confirmation page when your application is successfully submitted.
How long will it take to fill out my profile? How long will it take to apply for specific openings?
If you’ve gathered all your information before you start, your profile should take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Applications vary by position but will likely take 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
Do I need experience with plasma donation or knowledge of the industry?
Most of our positions do not require any previous plasma donation experience or industry knowledge, and we welcome candidates from other industries for the unique perspective they bring. If industry knowledge is required, it will be specified in the job posting.
How long does it take to advance within the organization?
This really depends on where you start and what skills you bring to the table. Those starting in entry-level positions within our centers are able to begin cross-training within the first several months and could move up after 90 days. Those in management positions typically must be in the role for at least one year before applying for new positions within the company.
Will I be expected to relocate if I want to move up with Octapharma Plasma, Inc.?
As you climb the ladder with Octapharma Plasma Inc, or cross the “lattice,” being receptive to relocation will open your world of possibilities given the fact that our organization is nationwide.
When you apply
I’m halfway through my application and have to stop; will the system save my information?
Yes. If you’ve made it past the first profile page and have entered your email address and password, any information you’ve entered will be saved. You can complete your application later by logging in to your existing profile.
What if I don’t have an email address?
Why do you need my Social Security number and date of birth?
We need these for a background check only if you are offered a job with Octapharma Plasma. Don’t worry – all your information is confidential. It won’t show on any application forms, and hiring managers can’t see it.
Can I apply even if I don’t see a current opening that interests me?
Yes. If you’re interested in future openings at our corporate office, you can submit a profile that will be saved in our database. Choose the last job in the list, titled "Don't see the job you are seeking?"
Be aware that if your application isn’t tied to a specific position, it will not be viewed on a regular basis, and it will not be considered for plasma donation center openings. Our job board is updated frequently, so check back often for specific openings and complete an application for the job(s) that interest you.
I want to apply for several of the jobs listed. Do I need to fill out a separate application for each one?
Yes, but using your saved profile means you won’t have to fill out the entire application for each job opening.
Is there a limit as to how many jobs I can apply for, or how often?
There is no limit; however, our hiring managers work closely with one another and you should be mindful to only apply for positions that suit your long-term career goals.
After you apply
How can I check the status of my application?
After receiving your application, we’ll look at how well your qualifications match the job’s requirements. We usually get many applications, so we only contact those candidates whose qualifications match up best.
How do I update my current profile or see my old applications?
Log in to your account and click “Edit your profile” or “View application status.”
What if you didn’t answer my question in the FAQs? Do you have a help line or an email address I can contact with questions if I have problems applying?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll respond by email in one to three business days.
