I have been working at ACCESS - Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services full-time (More than a year)
Excellent benefits (even if long time employees complain frequently!) Mission-driven work & dedicated coworkers Excellent place to network within the non-profit, metro-Detroit industry
New ideas are almost universally unsupported Quality in coordinators/managers is extremely inconsistent; most middle-managers are allowed to run their department in any way they want, even if it is a far cry from the values of the organization Good people are let go despite quality work; advancement, when possible, has very little to do with work performance
Advice to Management
Take more control of organizational culture by asking employees to review their managers/supervisors. There is some toxic middle-management in this organization that really runs counter to the direction the executive team is trying to move the organization in.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ACCESS - Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (Dearborn, MI).
The interview process is decentralized. You interview with the department where you'll work. My experience was positive: the people I interviewed with where excited and professional. It was warm. However, dealing with HR as a new hire was very unusual. They called to offer me the job, but then asked what position I interviewed for and who I interviewed with. They also used religious words/expressions during the conversation which didn't put me off, but I definitely thought it was inappropriate. HR also asked me to print off and fill out all my new hire paper before meeting with them. I asked them to print it off for me. They did and organized it all for me. Then during the first meeting, they chastised the other new employees for not having their papers organized like mine. It was a like a scene from a sitcom.
- The interview process is very straight forward. Be prepared to answer questions about the population (low income) that this organization serves and your experiences related to that. 1 Answer
There is no room for negotiation.
