Senior Regional Director (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – September 11, 2017
If you are a road warrior who is passionate about the outdoors and preserving the outdoors then the NWTF is the place to be. Winter and Spring brings 80 hour work weeks. Summer slows down and in fall it ramps back up

Management seems to always have hidden agenda's. You never know what is coming from one day to the next. They like to do reductions in force, blame someone else and tell the same story of how this is the last time we do this and we are going to fix it. Bottom line, this place suffers from poor or mismanagement at the most senior levels.
you can easily spend a year or two drawing a paycheck here and never really work at all
Human Resource Director (Former Employee) – Edgefield, SC – August 7, 2015
This is the best job & organization for whom I have worked. The culture and people were fantastic. Unfortunately, due to turmoil between the Board and executive staff, a new CEO was brought onboard who decided to make several changes to his staff. I was subsequently laid off.
Great non-profit conservation organization led by inexperienced CEO in recent years.
Senior Regional Director (Former Employee) – Montana and Wyoming – May 24, 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed the job I performed for the NWTF. However, major changes began to occur when a new CEO was appointed by a National Board about 6 years ago and the organization has struggled under this new leadership. Many jobs have been eliminated under this new management leadership in order to meet profit expectations set by the board.
I interned at the National Wild Turkey Federation so it was not a paying job. I interned in the communications department so I worked with their magazine and their social media department. I learned a lot about social media and what goes in to producing a magazine. The employees there were wonderful and helpful. I got to experience so many different extracurricular activities while there.
Great team atmosphere, fun and rewarding work, but at the time of my employment was a challenging time for fundraising and membership recruitment - key components to the overall success of the organization.
