PT Spring Intern
Intern (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJanuary 22, 2015
This position was a PT unpaid internship for the spring of 2010. I couldn't really call it an internship, but more of a volunteer experience. The reason for that was the fact that I had to end my internship early because of financial reason. Everyone at the office was super sweet and helpful. They didn't make you feel inferior when talking to them. Everyone had the same goal and seemed to get along.

Productive and fun place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Utica, NYJanuary 21, 2015
Administrative Assistant. Contacted volunteers to help with events. Interpersonal relationships with the volunteers and my co-workers was the most enjoyable part about the job. I love human interaction with different people on a daily basis. Also, putting together promotional items for the events we worked and volunteered for was rewarding. Being able to spread heart health awareness was also rewarding. The hardest part about the job was finding volunteers to help on short notice in certain occasions. Overall, the job was very rewarding.

Associate Manager, Operations (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 10, 2015
I was one of two staff who envisioned and launched the American Heart Association's (AHA) Food Certification Program (the red heart with the white check-mark in it that you see on food products in the grocery store). I managed all aspects of the operations of this program, including nutritionally screening every food product to ensure it met the criteria for carrying the heart-check mark on its packaging and all contracts between the participating food companies and AHA

Internship.
Internship (Former Employee), Little Rock, ARDecember 17, 2014
This was the best experience. I got to help launch a program for this organization. This intership really made me grow and see how much of a difference the right program can make in people's lives. I loved getting to know the people that work there. All the managers really seemed to have a good working relationship with all of their employees. The hardest part was learning how reach out to the public about this program. Once we started having people particiapte in the program it was easier to get more and more people interested. It was a wonderful experience.

Good but aggressive company to work for
Director (Former Employee), MidwestOctober 29, 2014
Pros: great mission, committed volunteers, good benefits
Cons: uneven management, aggressive culture
The AHA is a good company to work for. As nonprofits go, it offers a comprehensive benefits and rewards package, as well as pays fairly competitively against other large, national NPOs. They have an aggressive fundraising culture, which isn't for everyone. Also, I think a person's success will largely depend on their manager, which is too bad because there are a VARIETY of management styles in play, and not all of them are good. Be prepared to hustle to meet your goals and work hard. If you are an assertive, type A personality, then the AHA may be a good fit for you. And there are lots of internal advancement opportunities.

Hard working fundraisers with an outside sales approach to raising money.
Corporate Market Director (Former Employee), Houston, TXOctober 8, 2014
Pros: raising money for cardiovascular disease research
Cons: outside sales approach to fundraising with lots of cold calling
I was happy to receive a position at AHA but my fundraising skills were somewhat different than their approach. It is for this reason it was not a good fit for me.
