Mission: American Humane Association's mission is to ensure the welfare, wellness and well-being of children and animals, and to unleash the full potential of the bond between humans and animals to the mutual benefit of both.
I have been working at American Humane Association full-time (More than 5 years)
I love the mission of AHA. Co-workers are terrific. Great culture that is respectful and kind. Mission supports animals and kids, and the programs are amazing. I really like the work of Red Star Rescue and the military programs. Love my job!
This is a small nonprofit, so there aren't a lot of resources.
Advice to Management
Thanks for devoting time to build a positive culture and workplace. Keep up the good work!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Humane Association (Denver, CO) in July 2010.
I interviewed with the director of the department. The interview took place at a table in his office. He began the interview by first describing the business of the association and then explained the current state of the department and what led up to the need for the position I was interviewing for. He then summarized the job requirements and we discussed my qualifications and related experiences. I shared what my approach would be and also was able to communicate my passion for doing the type of work I do. Overall it was a relaxed environment and I felt I had ample opportunity to relate major accomplishments in my career and describe what my future goals are and what I'm not interested in doing. The director appeared to be candid and forthright about the position and expectations. In retrospect; I left the interview with a sense that working there would be a rewarding expereience and my contribution would be respected and much needed.
I provided my salary expectations to the recruiter; therefore it never came up during the interview process. However; during the interview I did make clear my primary goal is to find a permanent position working for a stable company.
