I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (More than 5 years)
Every day is different. You will do very rewarding work. You need to be proactive to focus on things that are really interesting to you. Great teammates spread out all over the country.
You have to create your own work life harmony but it is possible and management is supportive.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (San Francisco, CA) in October 2018.
I didn't apply, the recruiter contacted me. He seemed disorganized and his system sent me reminder emails after I had already responded. Then, after two phone interviews with the recruiter, I had an hour-long phone conversation with the supervisor of this position and then a 1.5 hour interview with a panel at their office. They all seemed perfectly nice but they kept saying things like "This is a really hard job. How do you handle stress?" and strongly implying that they work 24/7 whenever there's an emergency (when is there not?).
I sent thank yous to everyone and got no response to a question I asked, after being assured I could ask questions "any time." Over a month has now gone by and I've heard nothing from the recruiter. Obviously I didn't get the job and I didn't want it given the way they presented it as extremely stressful and difficult, but never speaking to someone who has spent weeks going through your interview process is beyond unprofessional.
