    Pros

    In my experience, if one proved his or her worth, demonstrated the ability to innovate, and had the right supervisor, greater responsibilities and independence were quick to follow. It was a great position for me to be in as a first step in my career. I feel like I made a real impact on the organization. I could have stayed longer - there were many opportunities to redefine the work I wanted to do. Good benefits. The office environment was great and the organization attracts interesting people. Some of my closest friends are still the people I worked with at the Rainforest Alliance.

    Cons

    I think one of the keys to my experience was how cross-divisional my positions always were; this allowed me to get to know the organization well. At the time I was there, the authority and room for growth that employees were given varied greatly based on the character of their supervisors. At the time I was there the organization was growing quickly, which provided many opportunities for short- and long-time staff to adapt. Some long-time staff took up those opportunities better than others.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rainforest Alliance (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Erratic and time consuming. Hiring managers arrived late because she was offsite getting a visa at a local embassy. Had to wait in a coffee shop in the building lobby until she came back. Hiring manager was unprepared and called me back a few weeks later and asked the same questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Is there any reason that we shouldn't hire you? Why did you make a typo on your cover letter? You understand that will not be acceptable?   1 Answer
