    I worked at AmeriCares Foundation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working together with the staff - a group of collegial, educated, passionate and mission driven men and women. Educational and rewarding opportunity to learn about global public health. First hand experience traveling to the developing world to witness the challenges faced by victims of natural and manmade disasters was lifechanging.

    Cons

    Professional growth and development is challenging in an enviroment where staff wear many hats and have limited time to think strategically or develop plans that would create more efficiencies to get the day to day work done.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AmeriCares Foundation in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    It almost seemed like the company was really desperate to hire someone. The person I spoke to on my first interview was rude and didn't seem like he cared about his job. Turned me off completely. I think that if the people who work there were better representatives of the company, I would be writing a completely different review. I want to work somewhere with high employee morale.
