    I have been working at AmeriCares Foundation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Americares definitely feels like a big family. It is nice knowing that your work actually helps people in need around the world.

    Cons

    Management seems to be so involved with the implementation of projects that a lot of the necessary administrative tasks get overlooked which ends up putting more burden on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back from each project and look at how your unit is functioning from a high level. Don't get too deep into the weeds.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AmeriCares Foundation.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call from the recruiter who asked about my background and interests and then set up an in person interview with the Director. The interview was very comfortable and asked about my background and what I was interested in and discussed the position. I heard back the next day with an offer.
