      -Knowing that you're helping vulnerable people get better lives is a really amazing feeling. So great job satisfaction! -The employee benefits are great such as medical, dental and leave - Met some amazing colleagues and people while working here


      - The management is horrendous. They have their own click and if they don't like you they will make your life so bad that you want to leave. - Managers do not offer guidance. Instead, they prefer to send nasty emails and warnings constantly and make employees feel worthless. - The management also talk bad about you and say nasty things about even after you have left the company. - No priority on mental health of caseworkers who day in and day out work in extremely hard and stressful situations. - Expats get paid a lot more and get extra benefits to do jobs that local people could easily do which could be seen as race thing. - No development of staff and very toxic working environment.

        The work environment in Thailand office is international and professional. Global policies are complied to the local systematically. Colleagues are also supportive and friendly.


        Like the others NGOs, there is lack of job challenges. It is even more routine when you are in the supporting function.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Customer Service Representative CSR

      I had an interview this afternoon for a customer service position in a call center. The ad was very vague to begin with and at the end of it I felt like I really didn't know anything more about the job. When I asked about the starting pay, which was not published in the ad, they looked incredulous (they were doing on-the-spot hiring today) and then asked me "What's your range?" And only responded with "I think we could meet that." And still never gave me a straight answer. Is this a red flag?

      Software Engineer

      I did my initial interview with a “better established” startup and they said the interview process is 5 interviews. 3 technical then 1 interview with the CEO then another technical interview. Idk about you but that seems like a lot of interviews and they said they want to do it as fast as possible in a short time span. Is this a normal amount of interviews? Is this a red flag? For a full stack software position 4-5 years exp how much salary should be the norm in a hcol area?


      Business Analyst

      Is it unprofessional to attend a Zoom interview from within your car? I am currently employed and just landed an interview for tomorrow. It is a virtual interview over Zoom. Should I try to find somewhere besides my car for the interview? I don't know that I could but wanted to get yalls thoughts on this.
