I have been working at American Red Cross full-time

Pros

The mission of the organization is fantastic. They do so much to help others and help save lives that you really feel good abut what you do on a day to day basis. There are also some very good people to work with.

Cons

The organization is going through some changes and there have not been a lot of opportunities to advance. They need to change from a culture of reducing to one of building in order for staff to feel safe and appreciated.

    I worked at American Red Cross full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting different donor and hearing their stories

    Cons

    Scheduled in 5 hour shifts so you only get 30 min break but then get stuck working 14 plus hours and that is all you had to yourself.

    Bad Management

    Long hours of travel

    Unorganized

    Rude staff/coworkers

    Less days scheduled than hired

    have on call days and you must wait around till 11 am

    work to many holidays and bad time off

    To many rules and regulations

    Hard to be promoted

    Advice to Management

    Get organized

    Treat staff as you would like to be treated, they do make your salary
