    I have been working at ASPCA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is awesome to have an organization dedicated to helping animals. The company keeps growing and helping more and more animals including farm animals!

    Cons

    Not enough hours in the day to get all the work done. The amount of work can be overwhelming and it sometimes feels like it is never ending. Management is hard to come by in times of crisis and staff needs a voice just like the animals they work with do.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with staff more often. The people that work there are so dedicated and just need to know they are being looked after by the people they work for. Make sure staff is taking care of themselves physically and emotionally. Animal welfare is a tough line of work but people work in the field because they love it. They just need to be reminded they are animals too and need to care of themselves the way they care for the animals.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ASPCA (Urbana, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted to interview a day after I submitted my application online. It was a phone interview that consisted of questions related to experience and education. Information was shared by the interviewer about job expectations including hours, training, and pay. After the interview I was told I would hear back by that afternoon about the status of the job and if I was moving forward in the process....Nothing after that, no email, call nothing. I emailed and thanked the interviewer for the time they took to interview me (like I have done with all my jobs.) After 4 days I attempted to email again and no response. I called after waiting 3 days and left a voicemail. Again no response. I feel this is highly unprofessional and disrespectful of this manager. I am a volunteer with ASPCA's FIR team and don't think this is how the company itself treats people but this branch might be the sour apple.
