    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Oxfam full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Influential and effective INGO. Great work culture and US headquarters. Oxfam US attracts very smart and compassionate employees.

    Cons

    The open office environment is not conducive to working with major donors and high level voluneers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who don't micromanage. Keep the Union--it tells everyone you walk the talk. And keep "Righting the Wrong". Oxfam is a wonderful organization.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oxfam (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online, and received a phone call within a week or so from an HR representative. After an initial phone screening, I was then invited for an interview via video call with a panel of 2 HR staff and the hiring manager for the position. Communication throughout the process was great, and the panel interview was straight-forward and relaxed. They mostly asked questions about my relevant experience and why I wanted to work with Oxfam.
