    I worked at Colorado Coalition for the Homeless full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Above average benefits. Good salary. An opportunity to help people. Good teamwork. Very nice people to work with in a positive environment. Better quality of service and infection control than many private practices.

    Cons

    For many support roles the ability to speak Spanish is required. A person cannot apply if they are not bilingual. This gives an unfair advantage to Hispanic job applicants. A clinic cannot say they are an equal opportunity employer if they discriminate against English speaking citizens. This is especially unfair for an institution that runs off of tax payer dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Don't discriminate against English speaking Americans.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    The first one was with two managers. They were very nice and asked good questions some of them I had never heard before in an interview. I also had to do a quiz that basically tested my maintenance knowledge. I thought that was a pretty good idea because it helped me to realize what areas i should improve on. The second interview was with the managers boss and one of the managers from the first interview. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go back to working full time, when I got called for my second interview I had decided to focus on my schooling instead. They were very understanding of my decision and said I was welcome to reapply if things changed. It was a very good experience and after i finish school, I definitely want to work for this company.

    Reasons for Declining

    Even when I went to the interview I wasn't sure if I wanted to work or to go back to school. After the quiz I realized going back to school would be the best thing for me right now
