    Pros

    Despite shortage of funds and lack of donations WFP in Syria managed to resume its operation and assistance to beneficiaries through a joint staff fundraising on social media for a one dollar donation which reached donors

    Cons

    Challenges are to deliver despite the security situation in Syria and to reach the needy in this harsh winter season

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management in general cares for its staff but process of advancement is lenghthy

    Administration Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at UN World Food Programme in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I have applied for an administrative position at WFP's DC office on Friday and they contacted me next Monday. Even though the position is based in DC office, the interview took place in NYC, so the interviewer preferred to spend Non-profit's $$$ to make people travel to meet her. They did paid for the travel though, but only after I begged for it in two months. There were three people in the conference room, but two of them were sitting taking notes. The interviewer didn't even bother to ask me what my name was and immediately started reading questions that pretty much sounded like personality test, same questions were rearranged and rephrased and after a dozen of them, I got really annoyed. Be ready for very annoying behavioral-type questions. The interviewer had a grading scale from 1 to 5 on her paper, where "1" was "Worst" and "5" "Best", and each time after I was done answering the question, she was marking the scale without giving a regard if I saw it or not. I have never been contacted after the interview, nobody bothered to reply to my Thank You letter. The post has been re-advertized two months after my interview.
