I worked at StoryCorps as an intern (less than an year)Pros
Excellent experience in a small-office environment that allowed me lots of individual attention. The internship was the best designed and structured I have participated in -- there was a steady amount of real, meaningful work that I was responsible for. It was also flexible enough for me to get some specifics skills out of it that I was looking for.Cons
While the no-pay/low-pay internship problem is by no means unique to StoryCorps, working 20 hours a week for $55 in New York City was a huge challenge.Recommends

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at StoryCorps in May 2014.Interview Details
After reading the post on my college's career site, I had sent in my application via Email. After about a month, I had gotten a response. After more correspondence (about 2-3 emails) I scheduled an interview. My interviewers were very friendly and the overall interview was good. There was even a few laughs here and there. After a few days, I had gotten the position. I've been working here for the past month.
Here at StoryCorps, the needs of the employees have a clear priority. HR has done a very good job on making StoryCorps a pleasant place to work. Everyone is friendly, there's not a hint of "office politics", there are events and there are even treats in the kitchen from time to time. There is also a focus on the professional development of the interns; which is something I'm very grateful for. It's not often that companies pay interns AND try to make them the best people they can professionally be. My only real criticism is how messy certain places are; but I hear that Administration is working on this and I have faith they'll get it done.
Overall, I can't recommend this organization enough for it's culture and it's real care for the people that work there.Interview Questions
