What is the vacation policy like at The Nature Conservancy? How many vacation days do you get per year?
Great question! As mentioned below, you receive two weeks your first year of employment, three weeks for your second - fourth years, and then four weeks of vacation after five years of employment. Vacation time is accrued, so you have the ability to roll over an additional week every year. As a federal contractor, we observe all federally recognized holidays.
As an employee of The Nature Conservancy for over eight years, I feel an extreme amount of pride telling others where I work. It's extremely fulfilling supporting a mission that's greater than the bottom-line. What I most often hear from employees is that they come for the mission and stay for the people. I, myself, have experienced that with my colleagues. They are an amazing family who have supported me and challenged me to grow.

What advice would you give the CEO of The Nature Conservancy about how to improve it?
Thank you for your feedback here. We hear you and will bring it back to the entire Talent Acquisition team.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make The Nature Conservancy a better place to work?
Wow! Thanks for your answer!
In regards to the comment about getting younger people involved, I can relate. I started my career with TNC in an entry level position. Nowadays, we have more resources available, such as a Young and Emerging Professionals ERG and a formal mentorship program.
What questions did they ask during your interview at The Nature Conservancy?
What I believe my relevant skills are and how I would approach situations.
As stated the experience was rude, unprofessional and offensive to have an HR/Recruiter laugh as you are talking especially when there was nothing ammusing.
Poor - this is probably an intern-type position with AmeriCorps so you would get min wage
