    I worked at City Year as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity for learning, work with a purpose, abundant networking opportunities, if you love kids and teaching (and I mean LOVE) then this is the gig for you.

    Cons

    Limited number of days off, slightly disorganized, hectic work schedule, insane hours, stipend is hard to (safely) live off of, and you're expected to be moving at 300 mph at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would recommend some flexibility with time-off polices, but I know that the government mandates make that hard to do.

    City Year Corps Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at City Year.

    Interview Details

    Interview wasn't terribly difficult. A lot of the questions they ask are floating around on the internet, and I had done my research and had prepared answers for a lot of the questions I was asked. The interview was over the phone, and lasted 30 minutes max. The interview was pretty one-sided though, as the interviewer just asks the questions and records your answers, so I would recommend asking questions at the end of the interview to make it a little more personal and a little more of a conversation.
