    I have been working at American Institute for Foreign Study full-time

    Pros

    The programs are life-changing and many people in the company live and breathe cultural exchange. It is full of passionate people who love their work. The company is very pro-employee and provides great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Personally, I see no "cons." In many positions people wear multiple hats. For some people who are looking for a cut and dry job, this may be a con.

    Regional Director Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Institute for Foreign Study (Stamford, CT) in February 2015.

    Interview

    It went very quick! Hiring manager and human resources were extremely communicative throughout the process, and answered questions I had about benefits, compensation, etc. right away once I'd received an offer. The interview itself was pleasant too. It was set up as more of a conversation with the hiring managers and the current regional directors than a formal interview, which always helps with the nerves!
