I worked at Phoenix House (More than 3 years)
This is an established nonprofit with a great mission and dedicated staff.
Like at many nonprofits, staff are vastly underpaid. I received only positive feedback and promotion over my four years there but never got any of the pay raises I asked for. Ultimately I had to look elsewhere for pay growth.
Advice to Management
Staff and middle management are very dedicated, but higher-up leadership tended to be out of touch with the reality of working conditions, hours, pay etc. More leadership "getting their hands dirty" would really help morale.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Phoenix House (Brooklyn, NY).
Questions about how you communicate with others , how well you deal with job related stress. They give you an option on scheduling the interview hours , is your commute going to be long
