    I worked at Wildlife Conservation Society full-time

    Pros

    Amazing feel-good work supporting the conservation of wildlife and wild places.
    Nice, smart people who have mostly been there forever.

    Cons

    Internal politics can be harrowing. In such a small place where everyone knows each other for so long, policies and strategies are rigid and folks can often be rude and unprofessional to each other because it's such a familiar group.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wildlife Conservation Society (Bronx, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Apply online and then after you are sent an email asking you to come in or an interview. When you arrive you are seated in a room with almost 20 other people you are asked to take a small test that checks your basic math skills (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing). After you have finished the exam you wait for your name to be called and then brought to another room where you wait to meet with one of the managers for the actual interview that last about 20 minutes or so. After that interview they bring you back to the first waiting room and from there you wait till they call your name to go into another room where they offer you the job. they ask you to come in for a day of paid training and then the next day you start working.
