- "Mission first" is one of the USO's core values -- personally, it has been a big change to work for such a mission-oriented organization but I can safely say that it's been a great experience.
- Management seems to care deeply about their employees. They understand the importance of work/life balance but also recognize their team member's achievements. Even when a mistake is made (after all, we all make them at one point or another), they turn it into a positive learning experience.
- The benefits are fantastic.
- Workload can be a bit stressful, but that's understandable as the USO is a non-profit and only has about 400-some full-time employees.

Getting an Interview

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at USO (Arlington, VA) in December 2014.
After completing the application, I was called by HR to schedule an in-person interview. Before the interview, I had to complete a pre-recorded video interview. The video interview asked standard HR questions (strengths/weaknesses, etc.) and was pretty awkward, but nothing terrible. For the in-person interview, I met with an HR Recruiter and the supervisor for the position. After the interview, I was called about two days later to schedule a second round of interviews. In this second round, I met with three different people, each of whom the position works closely with. The questions were all pretty basic interview questions. By the end of the process, I had met with 5 different people in the organization, which was great, as it gave me a well-rounded perspective of things. I had a positive view of the organization coming out of the interview experience.
- The questions were mostly about my experience. They had a lot of questions about grant research and my writing process. Answer Question
