I have been working at Big Brothers Big Sisters full-time (More than 10 years)
It is like working with family, everyone here is here for the right reasons. The laid back, flexible environment is awesome. Never do I wake up dreading coming to work!!
I can not think of a con.
The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Big Brothers Big Sisters (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2017.
Interviewed with Program Managers, then with Chief Program Officer. Managers were delightful; Chief Program Officer was a nightmare. Actually, nightmare puts it rather pleasantly.
After mispronouncing my name several times (without asking me how to say it), and oddly asking me where we had met before (I had never, ever met her, but she kept saying she knew me, which was awkward) she very quickly looked at my resume and bluntly said I was not a good candidate. She then strongly hinted that I was wasting her limited and precious time. Finally, after some unenthusiastic questions that she was probably required to ask, she flipped my resume over and asked "Why are you here?" in a very dismissive manner. She then abruptly left the room without shaking my hand which I had extended. Honestly, she did me a tremendous favor--that job has been reposted time and time again, and I'm certain it's because whoever did end up working under her realized what a monster she was and quickly left. I'm lucky my skills weren't wasted working for such a miserable person, no matter how good the cause of the organization.
