    I have been working at Samaritan's Purse full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great. It's great to work with other like-minded believers. Everyone is so friendly. Each day begins with encouragement, devotions, and prayer.

    Cons

    The interview process can take a while. But I do appreciate that SP is so thorough in wanting to make sure they have true believers and people who genuinely want to work in the name of Christ.

    I have been working at Samaritan's Purse full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Throughout my hire process, everyone in the company went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and cared about. With dozens of people involved in the hiring process, this effort was seamless to the point that I didn't even realize just how much of a well-oiled machine the inner workings of Samaritan's Purse is. Now as a full-time staff, I can see first-hand that the hiring process isn't the only thing that functions exceptionally--every department is run with a unique combination of strict attention to detail and intentionality. They certainly run by the "work for God, not for man" mentality.

    Cons

    Though this is a 24/7 functioning business, I think it would be great for tours to the facility to include a look into the day-to-day operations. While people come to tour the place behind the purpose of Samaritan's Purse, it would bring about a completely new level of respect seeing just how the nitty gritty runs.
