    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity

    Pros

    The organization is wonderful. Working for them I get to go home knowing I made a difference. We provide affordable housing to low income families and a wonderful "side effect", if you will, to that is we also build up the community/neighborhood. It a win win.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to move up as most "branches" have their own network and to save expenses (as we're non-profit) we have a lot of volunteers. Which is great but fills in the "gaps" so to speak.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your surroundings and to your associates. Usually those who work for you are your main contact. Trust them because they're in it day in and day out. They see so much more then we think and they really do have a great knowledge on what works and what might need improvement. Use that knowledge, don't judge it or brush it off.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with Habitat for a marketing director position. The human resources rep with whom I spoke was very good. He described the position and was willing to talk about the culture. He asked standard questions for a phone screen style interview, including what I already knew about Habitat for Humanity. Also asked about why I'm thinking of leaving my current job.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me about my strengths and for an example of where I applied that strength.   Answer Question

Thanks to Habitat for Humanity, more than 2 million people worldwide know there's no place like home. The mission of the not-for-profit, ecumenical Christian organization is to provide adequate and affordable shelter. It has built more than 400,000 houses at cost for families who demonstrate a need and are willing to invest "sweat equity" during construction. Homeowners make payments on no-interest mortgages; Habitat for Humanity funnels the funds back into the construction of homes for others. The group operates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto... More
