    I worked at World Vision International as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Professional development opportunities
    Unified by beautiful, global vision
    International teams and multicultural experiences
    Commitment to values

    In my six months there, I got a wonderful glimpse into a cool organizational culture.

    Cons

    Compensated with stipend
    "Multi-denominational" can lead to passive aggression or ecclesiological disagreements
    The size of the organization can slow down decision-making, and little tasks can get lost in the scope of work.
    Multinational work has its challenges: Skype calls at 3AM are among them!

    Application Details

    Interview Details

    The gentleman who conducted the initial phone interview was very friendly and personable. The gentleman who conducted the 1:1 interview was arrogant and condescending. Had I been interviewed by 1:1 person first, I would not have pursued the opportunity any further.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions -- the questions were very predictable and routine.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I did not like the man who would have been my supervisor. He was arrogant and condescending.
