    Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salvation Army.

    Interview

    Applied online and a month later was invited for a panel interview with the department head, the HR manager and the division leader. This is an old, established nonprofit with an evangelical Christian persuasion and you might want to learn something about their structure to find out if it's right for you. By law, they can't discriminate in hiring based on religion but you are likely to do better if you share their beliefs. Employees ( those not directly in The Salvation Army corps) rank near the bottom of the organizational structure just above volunteers. Because this is set up as a pseudo-military organization, rank matters and division leaders change every few years and many husband and wife teams work in the same division which is awkward for the average employee. The people are welcoming but the vibe is that they're kind of set in their ways. If you aren't part of the SA corps, there's not much room for advancement and the salary is low but the benefits package is decent.
