I worked at AARP full-time (More than 3 years)
Working at AARP gives you all the benefits of a corporate environment, while working on advocacy issues that promote age-related issues.
Not much to report on cons, I really enjoyed working there.

Keep up the good work!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC).
I applied online and was contacted within 10 days for an initial phone screen. That went well, and they scheduled me to come in for an in-person interview with 2 people within the week. The in-person interview lasted about an hour and included set questions but was also conversational. I was provided with benefits information before the interview as well. Throughout the process, everyone was friendly and helpful. After the interview, I followed up with my HR contact a couple times, but never heard back about the status of my application (it's now been about a month since the interview). This greatly surprises me, as up until that point the contact was good about communicating with me. Because of this, I will think twice about applying at such an organization again.
