Extensive US travel while training new field staff as proficient fund raisers.
Field Staff Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VADecember 19, 2013
Field Staff Trainers (only 2 for a staff of 57) were called in as needed anywhere in the US to fully train National Rifle Association field representatives. Each field rep. was responsible for developing & maintaining 25 fund-raising committees in his or her state/area of responsibility. Each committee was expected to put on one fund-raising banquet in their city or community each year. They were also expected to supervise each banquet and handle all bookkeeping and transfer of funds to the NRA Foundation in Fairfax, VA. As a trainer, I was expected to be fully responsible for training all aspects of job responsibility for new staff members.

I was also called upon to fill in regularly for departing field staff members when the need came up. In other words, I took over handling of all field rep. duties of a particular state from handling correspondence, ordering all banquet merchandise, attending committee meetings, taking charge of banquets. This often meant spending many days and even weeks in a state where I did not live.

This required great organizational skills, professionalism, a take-charge mentality, excellent people management skills, bookkeeping skills, computer skills, written and face-to-face communication skills, negotiation skills, thinking & acting on your feet, crisis management etc.

Great Place to work
Donor Information Systems - Database Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Fairfax, VAMay 24, 2013
NRA was a great place to work. The culture was welcoming to people of all beliefs and backgrounds. The work I did on a daily basis was reconciling incoming donations, and keeping track of a 400,000 member database. The most enjoyable part of the job for me, was the consistency and my co-workers.

However, NRA will not hire you back if you leave for childbirth.
Pros
great benefits, good people

Hard working culture but with no return to show
Finance Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Fairfax, VADecember 1, 2014
The people who work at the NRA are wonderful, passionate people. The talent they are able to recruit using the mission of the NRA works well to their advantage. However, once within the company, you can see how antiquated the company is as a whole. Hard work is recognized, but proper compensation is not evident.
