    Great organization. The culture may not be for everyone, but if you give it time you'll probably fall in love with it.

    I worked at City Year for more than a year

    Pros

    The people, the history, the idealism being put to work.

    Cons

    Some of the organizational culture is plain silly and doesn't contribute much. Other parts of the culture are great and really add value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the culture things that don't add value and keep people from joining or continuing on. Publish the Idealist Journey.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at City Year in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The online application and interview setup was extremely easy to navigate and straightforward. However both portions are incredibly mentally challenging and time consuming. Committing a year of your life to City Year is a huge step and the application and interview really give you an idea of what you're committing to.
