I have been working at United Way full-time (More than a year)
Wonderful organization to work for. They care about their staff and the community!
Small, funding is all based on donations and grants. Room for advancement is minimal.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at United Way (Tampa, FL) in June 2016.
Phone interview went great, was told I'd be contacted n a few days for a second interview. After ten days I followed up with an email to schedule a second interview. The interview was scheduled within twenty minutes of my follow up email. Second interview went well. Was given two weeks expectations for a turn around time. Tried following up with the interviewer via email but no response. We are four weeks from my second interview. I got completely ghosted. Very unprofessional for a major non profit.
One thing the United Way knows: The need doesn't end when the storm passes or the fire abates. Recovery is a long-term process--especially for up to 1 million federal contractors who won't receive back pay reimbursement for the 35 days they went without.
That includes janitors, maintenance people, and landscapers--people who were scraping to get by before the shutdown--people like Bonita Williams, Loniece Hamilton, and Lila Johnson. You can read their stories here: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQoxJ
