    I worked at Boy Scouts of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The BSA is a great entry level job with the opportunity for growth. You gain a lot of customer service experience, as well as management and training experience. They do offer great benefits, and the company also offers a lot of perks.

    Cons

    The only thing that can be difficult is if you are assigned to be at camp during summer. This can take you away from home for weeks at a time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America (Muncie, IN).

    Interview

    I had two interviews. I interviewed with the District Director as well as the District Executive. The interview was very laid back and both of the interviewers were genuinely interested in getting to know me as a person and trying to figure out how I could fit in the organization. Their response time was less than a week.
