Patient Services Associate II (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – March 30, 2017
the work environment is somewhat 'un-inspiring' due to the data entry part was so boring. My direct manager was awesome; upper level management are not committed to the employees. Most difficult part of the job was the boredom of data entry. Most enjoyable part - feeling gratified for the services the organization provided to the patients
Cancer Information Specialist (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – March 29, 2017
The work is tough as you are regularly hearing of the crises in the lives of cancer patients and their families, but it is nice when you are able to help someone. The hours are flexible, the management teams are wonderful, and my colleagues were great. I worked here during grad school and they always quickly accommodated my new schedules.

Working with the American Cancer gave me the opportunity to network with a lot of people.I was able to meet with cancer survivors and family members of victims. We all learned how to express awareness and prevention all over the state of Georgia.
Community Manager (Former Employee) – Billings, MT – March 24, 2017
This was my favorite place to work. Challenging yet very giving overall. Getting into communities and creating a team to raise money is a great feeling and when you get to see those funds help a local family, you cannot find that anywhere else.
Meaningful place to work; respectful of work-life balance needs
Director (Current Employee) – North Carolina – March 22, 2017
The American Cancer Society is a great place to work. It has tremendous respect for work-life balance and there are often opportunities for advancement -- sometimes quickly. Turnover is a bit high, but it's a great opportunity to learn a lot of skills and put your skills to use for the greater good -- fighting cancer.
Community Manager (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – March 15, 2017
Love what the company stands for just very hard to balance work/life with crazy work hours. Ultimately had to put being a mom before the job however I loved the experience I was given and do not regret the years I was there.
Community Cancer Control Manager (Former Employee) – Goldsboro, NC – March 5, 2017
Great Management. Very good training and mentoring program. Enjoyed educating the community about prevention, and detection of cancer. It was a very rewarding career. Clients, Volunteers, and people that I worked with were awesome.
Fantastic Organization! Great People! Rewarding Work!
Cancer Information Specialist (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 25, 2017
Wonderful work environment.Things are very organized. Procedures are clear, so you know what is expected of you. Management genuinely cares about the employees.The people who work there are amazing, caring, and dedicated to the mission. Lots of opportunities to learn and grow professionally. Achievements are recognized and celebrated. Lots of incentives and perks. Benefits are amazing. Plenty of room for advancement if you work diligently. This company really cares. The only down side is the salary. If they had paid more, I would have stayed there forever. Great place to work for someone who wants to gain experience in the working world and build their resume or for someone who loves the cancer cause and isn't worried about making a lot of money.

Sale Associate/Volunteer (Former Employee) – Laguna Niguel, CA – February 20, 2017
A typical day at work involved steaming new inventory, unpacking boxes, tagging clothing, and putting them on to racks for available purchase. Other duties included organizing, cleaning, helping customers, and managing the cash register. Everything in a typical day at work at this organization taught me what it means to work in retail and how much I enjoy it.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Mayagüez, PR – February 20, 2017
I have the utmost respect and admiration for all the members of the ACS. They are great mentors, human beings and they love their work. The time I was there as a volunteer was one of the most rewarding experiences I ever felt in my life, it was an eye opener for me to understand the treasure of life and volunteering.
