    I have been working at American Red Cross full-time (more than an year)


    Great people with many having a selfless attitude
    More informal work environment and dress code
    Make lots of contacts in Emergency Management and local government


    VERY low pay
    VERY long hours with VERY unreasonable expectations
    High turnover, been here less than a year and 4 people have quit out of my office alone
    Executives make 6 figure salaries with bonuses while most of the management level work horses earn closer to 35k so there is a massive pay gap
    No opportunity for advancement and no raises.....ever
    Often times they will hire outside the organization rather than promote their own
    Aside from house fire cases, we only really provide services that arent really needed like handing out water to firefighters
    EXTREMELY disorganized...Ive never ever seen an organization that doesnt even know what vehicles they have or where they are
    They claim to have "service to armed forces" as a primary mission, but charge PTO days for military training, so as a reservist, Im on average 3 days in the hole every year before I even make my PTO days.
    Dont plan on training when you get to your job. Most of us got thrown in with no guidance whatsoever
    Volunteers tend to be self centered and you have to stroke their egos to get them to do anything or they threaten to quit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being greedy, create a pay scale like the federal government, train the people you bring in, have some loyalty to your employees, and be realistic in your expectations

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
