    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO


    The organization has a great mission and potential to grow. A lot of work is done in collaboration with other organizations which is a great networking tool.


    There is a lot of turnover. Employees do not last here long and the hours can be overwhelming. The leadership at the top is hardly challenged.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    Two interviews before offer (Standard for C@R, sometimes they'll do 3+ because of poor scheduling and senior staff aren't in the office). Standard questions on resume, nothing complicated. Just make sure to know details about C@R & the job description. Be prepared for them to suggest a different position that you didn't apply for and that doesn't fit your skill set. CEO acts like there's no room for negotiation on salary but you can "talk again in a few months" (Don't fall for this. He low-balls salary and you won't be taken seriously for a raise unless you threaten to walk.)

    Interview Questions

    • How weird are you? (incredibly awkward) Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years?   Answer Question
