    I worked at American Red Cross full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated hardworking staff. Benefits are about the same as most large companies. Mission driven environment, helping people through blood donations is rewarding.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be difficult. Long hours meeting FDA mandated timelines for reporting is ever present. Constant procedural changes when most are minor changes puts too much flux in the system.

    Advice to Management

    Stop restructuring the company/laying people off as a way to cut costs. Excessive change does not promote quality.

    Document Management Specialist Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Oakland, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewing for my old job as Document Control Specialist after a company reorganization. The interview took place via Teleconference from the new department manager and director from their location in Pomona, CA and my location in Oakland, CA. The camera was crooked (pointing at me) so I had to position myself at an angle the whole time so I looked like I was sitting up straight on camera. HR staff came in my room and started banging tables and chairs together for another meeting while loudly apologizing in the middle of interview questions.
