A Wonderful and Humanitarian place to work with
On-call Responder (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 17, 2018
When I first signed up to be a mass care worker, and on-call responder, my profile was given an extensive background check (which I passed with Flying Colors). After that, I met my advisor, who showed me the ropes of working in the Red Cross. He is a Great advisor. I can't place an emphasis on that that's high enough to show it. The training is rigorous and tough, but is never frustrating. And yes, you get to help the communities out in more ways than one, such as helping out after a fire in an apartment building (to which I've responded to 3 fires so far), a hurricane, during a vacate order (to which I've responded to 2 of), and, you get to help install smoke alarms in houses which do not have any. And we do it all for free, so the clients love us for that. Overall, if you want to have a career starter in health and relief work, the red cross is for you. Just be sure that you have the time for being on-call 24/7/365.
Being on-call for anything all the time
