Answered phones, in main reception area. Greeted patients for wigs and breast prosthetics. Very rewarding. My Manager was very helpful and caring. The hardest part of the job was seeing the personal struggles with this disease, Cancer.


The most rewarding part of the job was helping the patients coming in. And the Relay Managers during Relay Season.

Coordinator, Division Account Management Support (Current Employee), Dallas, TXApril 8, 2015
It is not often that you are able to have a job in which you can have a direct and meaningful impact in someone's life. Working here I am able to work directly with patients, their families, and see how my work contributes to the goals of the organization.

We were able to contribute $100,000. to the American Cancer Society from this event. Individual teams from the community at large offered to raise money by participating in an overnight walkathon. My job was to solicit teams, organize the event, and collect the monies.

An atrocious place to work with terrible upper management
Community Manager (Current Employee), Rocky Hill, CTMarch 30, 2015
An atrocious place to work with terrible upper management...they lose people every single day because they ask people working for an entry level salary to perform managerial tasks.

Account Manager Corporate Relations (Former Employee), Houston,TXMarch 27, 2015
Pros: Benefits are good
Cons: Overturn is high
I have been working and volunteering (MD Anderson Cancer Center) in the top cancer organizations for the past 15 years in Houston,TX. The American Cancer Society provides programs and services free of charge to all cancer patients nationwide and has a Patient Navigator available 24/7 365 days a year who are trained to answer the needs for cancer patients and their families. They offer amazing services free of charge. The management and structure of the Society constantly changes and consistency at the local and national level is a challenge and room for growth is very limited. The unfortunate side of this is that there is a great deal of change in management and job positions.

Management at ACS needs to get over themselves
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 26, 2015
Pros: Good benefit package
Cons: Too many cons to list. Not a good place at all
ACS is one of the worst places in Atlanta to work. Management talks a lot about caring for its employees but that's all it is --- talk. Management cares about management and how much of the donations money they can keep for themselves. And that's all they care about. Horrible place to work.
Most of the managers think way too much of themselves, think they are so very important. Well, get a clue honey, you ain't nowhere near as important as you think you are.
