    Pros

    Good Company Good Benifits. Hard to advance.

    Cons

    The work is not challenging and you technical skills will get rusty. It is the most regulated company I have ever worked for. Be prepared to do more paperwork than work, much more.The work is not hard and they pay well.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview

    Basic interview process. Applied online through Glassdoor, phone screen was pleasant and easy and you are really made to feel like they want you as a part of the org. 3 days later on person interview was in a similar vein, very relaxed and laid back. The HR is centralized so they made the process a little harder than it needed to be but overall a good experience.
