    I worked at Animal Humane Society full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest pro about working for AHS is knowing that the work you do makes a difference in the lives of animals every day. The coworkers I had were fantastic - very supportive and willing to help others learn. The pay is really good for a non-profit organization, and the benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    It's pretty much impossible to finish all the tasks you need to get done in one 8-hour shift. During the employee retreats there are anonymous questions asked of senior leadership and some of them are pretty inappropriate. I felt awkward and uncomfortable being surrounded by that tension.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a few days shadowing operations staff to find out just how big of a workload they take on and see if there's any procedural changes that could happen to make their workloads more manageable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Animal Humane Society (Golden Valley, MN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted approximately a week later. I was called in for an interview within the week. It was informal, the interviewer was dressed in jeans and t-shirt. I was interviewed by only one person. I was given a brief tour of the facility, and was interviewed in one of the empty offices.
