I have been working at DKMS part-time (Less than a year)
My job is to help save lives. How can you beat that?
There are some sad times. We're not always able to find a match for a patient in need, and we lose some battles. The wins outweigh the loses in the end, but the job itself, as opposed to the company, can be heavy on the heart at times. The thing about DKMS is, we all feel it together. Every loss, every win, every day, we laugh and cry together as we fight against blood cancer and blood diseases.
Advice to Management
The only advice I have for the management I am under is to take care of herself. She is hard working, dedicated, driven, and an amazing boss. I admire her more than she'll know (unless she sees this review, in which case, Hi, Joyce!), and I hope she always remembers to take a little time for herself while she's conquering this nonprofit management thing.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at DKMS (Washington, MO) in June 2017.
I was hired as a temp with no end date through a local employment agency. The initial interview with my current coworker was breezy and professional. The agency didn't quite have much detail about the role, so I began the interview reticent, but open-minded. By the time I headed home, I was extremely excited for the opportunity. The second interview included my current boss, and was just as wonderful of an experience.
