Delightful experience and wonderful atmosphere.
A typical day at working at Heifer Ranch was difficult but definitely fulfilling work. The knowledge i learned was invaluable and the people i met will be my closet friends for the rest of my life.

Very warm and family oriented
Unfortunately my time with Heifer International was a temporary assignment but if felt like a lifetime. The Organization itself is very empowering and self reliant it made perfect sense why the diligent and friendly staff matched it's ambition. What made my experience even more amazing is my transition from the food industry to clerical couldn't have been done at a better place.

Great Job
Great nonprofit and wonderful work environment. Heifer International Little Rock, AR campus is beautiful and helps to relieve stress throughout the workday with the natural wildlife around the building; turtles, fish in the pond, cow, pig, goats, Alpaca, and much more. Great to help donors in giving to them in need.

Toxic environment for temps; Workplace was laden uneducated lowlifes and college rejects
Temp workers were positioned to feel inferior and excluded (socially and professionally) from the permanent workers at Heifer. This was tragic because management kept an obvious divide between the temp workers and the tenured workers. Through the nonexistent benefits, management that was reluctant to connect with and advance temps, and the management's low hiring standards that resulted in underqualified and substandard team members, working at Heifer was far from ideal. I had a higher expectation for the treatment of entry-levels workers from a company whose mission is steeped in humanitarianism AND one where their nonprofit CEO is making over $400k a year (as of 2017).

productive and fun work place
9 to 5 management laid back. All different nationalities. Hardest part of the day is just getting out of bed to get there. The most enjoyable part of the day is meeting given expectations.
Pros
Fun and friendly
Cons
none

It's a Good Job
This job is really nice. The staff are nice. The facility is clean and beautiful. They do very good work for the world. It's very slow paced during certain times of the year, and then very fast paced at certain times of the year.

The culture of the workplace is very liberal politically. At first I thought politics wouldn't be mentioned, but I was wrong. If you're capable of remaining neutral despite having opposing view points it'll still be a great place to work.


Everyone is generally friendly, I've never had a problem with anyone. It's a bit too relaxed and slow for my taste sometimes. Other times it has a very good pace to work, that still allows you time to breathe. They have set expectations you're expected to reach, which is helpful to have a goal to work towards.


What I've experienced is that they're understanding of people taking care of their business. They know everyone isn't a robot, and that people get sick, have family who get sick, or have pressing matters to attend to.
Pros
nice attendance policy, nice people, good management, beautiful facility, a good working goal
Cons
slow paced, political atmosphere

Temp to hire?
My typical day would change depending on which department I was working in. As a Temp I have been moved around a bit.

I didn't feel a lot of security. I know people liked me, but I had the thought of "Will I have a job in a couple weeks?" every few of months.


I really enjoy getting to know the people, and many different areas, but I would have liked to stay in one spot long term.


I was told stories often of people who were temp to hire, but there is no guarantee that you would be one of them.


Overall this has been a great experience, and I have been able to learn new skills.
Pros
Yogo Wednesdays, Cafe Discounts
