    Pros

    It's good, honest work, and one definitely feels a sense of fulfillment while working here. The staff is dedicated to the humanitarian cause, and the clients are usually quite appreciative.

    Cons

    Because of how understaffed the company is, the caseworkers really push as hard as they can to get people to help out. This isn't a job for those who can easily be pushed around. I was just an interpreter, but after about two sessions, I was asked to do more things, essentially becoming an unofficial caseworker quite quickly, using my own car and gas to pick up clients, take them to appointments where caseworkers didn't show up, wrote up reports and summaries for what I did and sent it back to the office. I felt bad for the staff and attempted to help, but I ended up abused.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! I know that the budget is tight, but perhaps the organization then needs to downsize.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Church World Service (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    Very laid back and amiable--more like a conversation than a formal interview. I had first been a volunteer and so I was familiar with the office and a number of the staff.
