    I have been working at American Cancer Society as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The New York City location is centrally located. The offices are bright, large and airy. I'm only seasonal, but I've found my colleagues to be friendly and open. The managers are easy to talk to and always there if you need them.

    Cons

    I'm seasonal and I have not been there that long, so I really do not have any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. I've been in the workplace long enough to know when management is doing a good job and when management is doing a bad job. Management at ACS is doing a good job.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was a phone call in which they asked thirty situation questions in a thirty minute time period. These questions had to do mostly with volunteer management and controlling a committee and making sure they are kept on track and focused. Questions were fairly similar to the online questionnaire which they make you complete. Sometimes it felt like they were asking same questions in different ways.

    Interview Questions
    • There was a couple instances where they asked questions in regards to discrimination and having a diverse staff, but if you are explain that you do not tolerate this and are a level headed person it should not catch you off guard too much   Answer Question
