How much does a phlebotomist make?
Generally a phlebotomist makes $12-14 per hour before shift

incentive for working evenings, nights and weekends. An example
of a common differential is $1 per hour for second shift (3-11pm),
$1.50 per hour for third shift (11pm-7am), and $2 per hour for
weekends. For example, a phlebotomist working third shift on a

can make more.
