    I have been working at Alley Cat Allies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being a full-time employee of Alley Cat Allies for nearly two years, I can honestly say that improving the lives of cats is job one. The people who work here are hardworking and dedicated to the cause; we consider ourselves champions for cats.

    I find the office environment to have a positive, creative synergy that translates into continually finding new ways to help community, shelter and pet cats.

    The weekly staff meetings keep all employees up to speed on our advocacy and outreach work. Upper management continually educates the staff about important topics that benefit cats such as cat behavior, shelter management policies/trends, law and legislation issues and more.

    Cons

    I’ve been working in animal welfare for over fifteen years and know how stressful, demanding and sometimes down right frustrating this line of work can be. As with all non-profits, businesses and relationships, nothing is perfect.

    We do a lot of intense work on behalf of animals that are easily over looked, dismissed as nuisances and most of all, are plainly misunderstood by many people. This is hard work and can sometimes be emotional but at other times be extremely rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to continue finding ways to place staff in areas where they can use their talents and strengths.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alley Cat Allies.

    Interview

    Sit and wait for a while. Easy questions from current staff, bizarre interview with higher ups. One woman was stoic and...kind of seemed like a lawyer? Very to the point but asked strange questions. Nothing about the actual work. The other woman was all over the place. I got the impression that staff are expected to commit their entire lives to the job.
