Positive Outlook


A really great cause that the staff generally want to make a difference. Good for students who want to make a bit of extra cash


Very weak leadership team, bad management and outdated practices. Inability to see the bigger picture,instead prefer focusing on petty issues. Waste a lot of the publics money on unnecessary

    Phone interview with typical interview questions followed by in person interview where I had to present an idea. Convinced this was just an opportunity to fish for new ideas as this was brought up as an issue for the company a number of times. The idea I presented was written down by the interviewers yet I was not offered a position. The only question I was asked during this portion of the interview was "tell me about yourself."
