      Benefits are good because it's a non profit organization. If you know how to play politics you can sit there forever even with no knowledge for your job.


      The formal goal of the company is to help people all around the world but they don't care even about their own employees. It's a non human treatment! In fact even on the meetings they called us a resource (not by name or title). Pretty rude management and a lot of ignorant people sitting there for years because of the benefits. I have found it's pretty hard to work in this non human environment.

        Working with International Rescue Committee has introduced me to various professional persons, some skills and knowledge were imparted on protection. Since it is a well established organisation, i'm really happy to be part of the team.


        I find it a great organisation that really cares and respects its workers the people it serves.

      I have an interview for Sr data engineer in RBC. Does anyone have any idea what can be asked? Any experience anyone can share?


      University of South Florida

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
