    Pros

    World Relief engages in such a wide variety of refugee and immigrant services that there is a place for just about anyone with a heart for the vulnerable. We are typically their only advocates and as we help them navigate the complex channels of successful integration into our complex American society, the outcomes are unbelievably gratifying on many different levels. This company treat employees like gold and all stakeholders like children of God.

    Cons

    The workloads will stretch you but there is nobody lording over you with a for-profit-type whip to finish. It is typically just you and the refugee family with a series of steps that needs to get accomplished before they can successfully embark on a pathway to citizenship. Everything from learning English as a second language (ESL) to resettlement to job attainment to medical assessment to school enrollment to family counseling to advocacy to case management is covered by World Relief, so the possibilities of life improvement that we offer is huge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in coming into the field to work with us. We love you and we like to see you and we learn from you. The telephone lines get very long and thin when we have such important compassionate work to accomplish as a team!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at World Relief in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed several times by different people in the organization on the phone and once in person by direct supervisor. There were stops and starts in process and I generated contacts to keep the process going ... but that's just what you have to do.

    Interview Questions
    • When trying to pin down details about reporting structure for new position, direct supervisor waffled a bit on details   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was not one. When we got to the salary part, I asked if there was negotiation space as it was far below what I was used to making and the response was, "No. Take it or leave it."
