I have been working at Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of Washington part-time
I get to work with some of the most amazing ladles and experience hands on skills towards my own future goals which is to become a social worker and help people everyday just like they do!
We all have to experience just how hard it can be to see people suffering without the basic needs and a place to sleep with their children. How sad and hard that type of situation can be!
Advice to Management
You all try so hard to do your absolute best and I see your efforts don't get discouraged when the community is trying to get down on you for not giving them exactly what they want when they want it! Continue to stay professional and don't let them have a negative effect on your day! They don't realize that you really are trying to help everyone you possibly can but still following the rules and procedures!
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of Washington (Washington, DC) in May 2017.
I emailed my application materials, and a few weeks later, I was contacted by email by someone scheduling interviews on behalf of the hiring manager. When we decided on a time, he told me to call the person at the appointed time. I found this strange - that I would have to initiate the call when they were the ones who were seeking a person to fill the position.
I had the call, and it took about a half hour. But then I never heard back from them, even to tell me that I would not be moving on in the process. Talk about an extreme lack of courtesy! For an organization that, admirably, assists thousands of people who are in great need in various ways, I find it astonishing that they would be rude to potential employees like this. I thought that they were an organization with compassion for people on the margins, yet they can't spare a little bit of courtesy for a candidate for a job.
