    I have been working at National Recreation and Park Association full-time

    Pros

    NRPA opened a career path for me in associations and I'm so thankful for it. Not only is the mission and work rewarding but one of their main focuses is work life balance and they truly mean it. They have great benefits like teleworking, flexible schedules, matching 401k, tons of leave, encourage staff to participate in healthy actives and so much more. They also encourage staff to pursue professional development opportunities. NRPA's culture is one of collaboration and encouraging everyone to try new things. Its refreshing!

    Cons

    The only slight downside is the location, but its easy to get there.

    Advice to Management

    I love the opportunities and experience NRPA provides me. I look forward to the exciting new ones to come as well.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Recreation and Park Association.

    Interview

    Met with HR manager, hiring manager and another member of team for about an hour. Was told I was going to be brought in for another interview to meet additional members of the team. They kept reiterating "fit" was important to them. As it is to me, so I was surprised to get an offer after an hour interview. I asked if I could come back in to meet more of the team. Was told no. Asked if I could have an extra day to decide. Was also told no. Declined offer.
