Default What proportion of 'bad' quality reads are expected using HiSeq 2000 for RNA-Seq

I am just after processing 24 files, using trimmomatic to quality filter them. On average was 30% of the reads were bad quality (SD = 11).

This seems somewhat high to me, I was just wondering if anyone else had experience with this and could tell me what would be expected? If I should be particularly concerned about this...

30% is indeed high. We -- I work at a sequencing center -- have seen such results but in these cases the problem is tracked down to sequencer problems, sample prep, or just an random problem. We almost always re-run the samples. Does fastQC show any particular place where the problem occurs?

Hopefully these samples did not come from an overloaded flowcell. (Assuming that you have taken into account the right Q-score parameters for trimmomatic)
