Had phone interview the lady nice. She asked the usual questions but I was very surprised when she told me that training would be 3 hours away in Madison Wisconsin and it would consist of 8 weeks @ 40 hours a week that's 320 hours!! Paid training and hotel room but the hassle of a physical tuberculosis test hepatitis B shot background and drug test along with living in another state for 2 months has me rethinking my upcoming face to face interview.😕

Since the Red Cross is a charity that depends on outside donations, it is difficult to say how termination due to lack of funding can be fixed or prevented. Most Red Cross workers are volunteers in the first place. Many of the staff have seasonal or labor jobs that allow them to stop working and travel from disaster to disaster. The Red Cross is more like a vocation than a job.
