    I have been working at Center for Cultural Interchange part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I feel that I'm contributing to making the world a better place for everyone. We work with fine host families who open their homes to amazing young people from around the world and with schools who welcome exchange students into the student body to enhance school life for everyone. It's very gratifying work.

    Cons

    This may not really be a "con," but it's a challenge to work with teenagers. Of course, they're immature, even though they are good students and have good values. We have to use all kinds of people skills to achieve the goals of the program, sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work with overseas partners who prepare students well for the exchange experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Center for Cultural Interchange (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I applied online and was called for a short and informal phone interview and was asked standard questions about my background and previous work experience. Then I was called in for a face to face interview and interviewed by 3 staff members. All were very friendly and I felt at ease and never uncomfortable or awkward. After the in person interview, I was sent an assignment which was an evaluation of my written skills and also was a determination of how I would react to certain scenarios. These were pretty straightforward.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the interview questions were all that difficult. The most complicated questions were "what would you do if..." kinds of questions. I feel for this company, they are looking for a certain type of person and for this particular department (Work and Travel), they are looking for people who are able to deal with high stress situations and who are really good team players.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Aim high when negotiating a salary. If you have the experience to back it up, you should definitely ask for far more than they are offering as this company is infamous for paying their employees poorly.
