I worked in the corporate office and loved my coworkers. The atmosphere was great and I appreciated the leadership's open door policy. There was always something exciting going on in the office!
Benefits and time off were good. They seemed to be very flexible if ever there was a time someone needed to come in a little late / leave a little early. The work-life balance was great, as soon as you are out of the office you can disconnect with work very easily. I was able to take some university classes while I was working!
I would recommend to a friend in search for a job, but not as a life-long career.
Hours are a little funky in the beginning because they start you off working the afternoon/evening shift. This changes the longer you are there though, so that's good.
I also didn't quite agree with the way the program was presented to lower-income families across the country. It seems that a lot of families are pressured into it, with the expectation that they would be receiving financial assistance from us (only provide educational assistance). The amount of time the families had to get a refund did not seem like enough.
Advice to Management
Be a little more honest and clear with families about what can be expected from the program. Allow longer than 2 weeks to cancel the program.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at College Admissions Assist..
I found the ad online and submitted my resume, along with the requested cover letter.
I was then asked to explain how I had positively changed the life of a young person.
I then had one phone interview and 2 in person interviews. The first was with the only executive director, the second was with the same exec. director, along with 2 other leadership personnel.
No negotiation. They named a salary and I took it.
