Mission: The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors
I have been working at American Red Cross (More than a year)
You gain skills that can be used when applying for jobs. They also have a variety of volunteer positions. My chapter treats volunteers great. They are awesome to work with.
There aren't many caseworkers. It can feel demanding at times since the company expects so much from the paid staff, that it sometimes falls on volunteers.
I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Oakland, CA).
Interviewing for my old job as Document Control Specialist after a company reorganization. The interview took place via Teleconference from the new department manager and director from their location in Pomona, CA and my location in Oakland, CA. The camera was crooked (pointing at me) so I had to position myself at an angle the whole time so I looked like I was sitting up straight on camera. HR staff came in my room and started banging tables and chairs together for another meeting while loudly apologizing in the middle of interview questions.
Red Cross Month is a great time to become part of the Red Cross. You can become a Red Cross volunteer or employee. Take a class or make an emergency plan. Or you can give blood or a financial donation. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIfuG
