    I worked at Catholic Relief Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility; generous HR policies, way better than the industry standard; kind and caring staff

    Cons

    Lack of growth within the HQ; limited salary increases. Variety of parallel opportunities available, however, most experienced employees work for several years, even decades, until they reach senior management level position/compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Promote and financially reward deserving employees to ensure retention.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Catholic Relief Services in March 2016.

    Interview

    It's through a webcam with pre-recorded questions. They give you a certain amount of time to answer the questions. Some of the questions have to do with the Catholic religion since it is a Catholic organization but you don't have to be Catholic to work there.
