Mission: Celebrate animals, confront cruelty.
I have been working at The Humane Society of the United States full-time
Proud to work at HSUS and all the amazing work they do. The most effective animal protection group in the world. Experts in most fields to help.
Pay is way below standards. ASPCA pays three times as much. A gets 50/day for petsitting. At HSUS the pet sitting is included in your check so you only get 1/2 of the 25. Too many chefs and not enough cooks - majority of upper management do not understand what job entails or how overworked we are.
Advice to Management
Cut the excessive layers of management and hire more staff to help with work. Listen to staff and their ideas/requests. We need another Laura Maloney who understood the job, how decisions affected staff and understood the job her staff was doing.
I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at The Humane Society of the United States in November 2016.
After submitting an application through the HSUS website I heard nothing back for about three weeks. I got an email from the HR department asking to set up a phone interview. During the phone interview basic questions were asked including salary, availability, why do want to work there etc. Only lasted 20 minutes. After that, an in person interview was arranged. The interview consisted of three administrators. One was very personable and willing to talk about the organization while the other one was very silent and the last was not paying any attention at all and was on his phone the entire time, clearly not engaged. The entire process from start to finish took about 5 weeks. Overall, communication was terrible. In between every correspondence with the organization, days would pass before they got back to me. The entire process was needlessly long and frustrating.
