Mission: Explore, enjoy, and protect the planet.
I have been working at Sierra Club full-time (Less than a year)
Motivated, enthusiastic, exceptionally talented coworkers; positive work culture with generous benefits for a nonprofit and union membership for most full-time employees.
Most people commit a lot of time and energy to their jobs, which can make for high expectations around output and caliber of work.
Advice to Management
While realizing that everyone always has too much on their plate, do prioritize strong onboarding to help new staffers get as up-to-speed as possible!
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sierra Club in February 2018.
Submitted an application and heard back unexpectedly 2-3 weeks later via email. We scheduled a phone interview with the department’s manager for the following week. I thought the phone call went really well, and about a week later, I was invited to do a video interview even though I am located where the HQ is in Oakland.
The video interview was with the person who interviewed me over the phone, and 4 others in the department. It took about an hour. They told me it would take at least 2 more weeks after before they would have any updates.
I emailed 2 weeks later, and they revealed to me that in the two weeks I waited to hear back, they chose someone else for the position.
