I worked at World Vision full-time (Less than a year)
Full of people who genuinely want to make the world better. Companionate and smart co-workers that challenge you to be the best at what you do. Pay is good for a non-profit. Allowed a work from home one day a week schedule. Had a once a month self-improvement time to take a class or work on improving your job training.
Unfortunately, It's very hard to get the right people in the right jobs because they can make more money somewhere else like Microsft or Google just down the street. This causes the wrong skill set for some jobs and it slows down the work. It also can take up to a year to get the right people in the job opening so it can double your work load. If they were able to do more of a work from home work plan they may be able to get higher qualified people in.
Advice to Management
Not really to Managers but to HR. Please try to push more work from home so that the more qualified people want to come to work there. It's an amazing company and it deserves to have the best.
I applied online. I interviewed at World Vision.
The process consisted of a Questionnaire and straightforward questions. Everything was electronic at first. After the flushing out via the electronic process, then the one on one stuff begins. I would prepare by reviewing the background info of the company and understand the principles. Because this organization stands for Christian tenants, I would only apply if your values match those mentioned. If not, I would not pursue because there will most likely be a clash later.
