    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Grist full-time

    Pros

    Smart, creative group of people who are making a difference and doing some really cool things in the nonprofit media space. Whatever issues may have existed in the past seem to have been addressed, because this is a great place to work. I really appreciate the freedom we're given to do our jobs, and I love the people I work with. One of the best jobs I've ever had.

    Cons

    Salary levels could be more competitive, but I imagine that's an issue for most nonprofits in Seattle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing staff the freedom to do great work, and continue to embrace the idea of focusing on the quality of work over quantity.

    Foundation and Corporate Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Grist (Seattle, WA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    About two weeks after submitting my application, I received an email to set up a phone interview. The interview was a few days after that. I spoke on the phone with 2 women for about 20 minutes. I didn't receive any contact from them after the call. I feel like if the interview could have been in person, I would have done much better. It was really difficult to gauge what type of answer they were looking for.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall exactly but I know a lot was based on my writing ability and style.   Answer Question
