      I have been working at American Red Cross, Kern Chapter part-time

      Pros

      There are no cons dont work for them

      Cons

      I would not here, building has bed bugs. A snake fell from the ceiling and they still did not call an exterminator. ( Snakes=mice). There response to these issues? Require the chairs be marked so that no one sits in each others chair to "stop" spread of the bed bugs. Literally management knows about bed bugs in the building and this was there response. I feel bad for the permanent employees who have to put up with that....
