I have been working at National Recreation and Park Association full-time (More than a year)
The benefits at NRPA are hard to beat! Besides the great insurance coverage, retirement and other options- there are wonderful benefits such as earning a day of PTO every 2 weeks, picnics in the summer, staff olympics and retreats... the list goes on! Our office is right on a beautiful pond with walking trails and we are dog friendly. There are a lot of women who are in management positions here which is a huge plus and very nice to see for once. I love coming to work everyday because my co-workers are some of the best people I've ever met. As a young professional, I really feel that NRPA values my growth and professional development and wants to help me to grow my career and knowledge.
Not too many come to mind, honestly. But, every place you go will have a couple grumpy employees and managers that may be a little crazy. In my opinion, none of that even comes close to dimming everything else wonderful about NRPA!
I applied online. I interviewed at National Recreation and Park Association.
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.
