Membership Representative (Current Employee) – Vienna, VA – January 2, 2013
I got a chance to work in an office environment where I got to explore many areas of the business world. I had one on one interaction with the clients. I worked closely with other organizations financial statements. Since we worked as a team, it was very easy to get day to day tasks done on time. We worked together and helped each other as a team. The hardest part was to keep track of all the clients and answer all of their issues. We wanted our clients to be happy with our service which is why we worked as a team.
Director, Donor Processing (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – June 8, 2018
Typical day included managing two employees who processed Donor pledges. Accuracy was extremely important and there was a high emphasis on this because, as a non-profit, we are stewards of other people's donation money. I loved my Manager, but when she was let go, the culture changed and I did not feel secure in my position.
LSP processor (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – June 6, 2018
Productive and relaxed place to work. Position was full time temporary. Only negative was there were no benefits or paid time off. But overall it was a good experience and I would recommend to some one seeking employment without benefits.
Internship (Former Employee) – Greenville NC – June 4, 2018
The supervisors at United Way are very fun but like to make sure each individual is responsible for their work. They answer questions very effectively. They most enjoyable part of the job is the fact we get to work with kids and make sure they are ready for the upcoming school year.
United Way was an amazing place to work, full of friendly faces and co-workers that made you feel as if you were part of a family. Working there was very calming and the manager was kind enough to allow me to study as I worked . Although I wish I could work there, I only worked there to achieve work experience.
Medicaid Customer Service Trainer (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – June 1, 2018
I had a great time working at United Way . I believe every ones experiences at a job is different . For me personally I really likd my bosses and most of my coworkers. United Way is a company that tries to do the best for others.
This employer is wonderful when it comes to pay and benefits, but they come at price. The workload is heavy and the busy season lasts for several months out of the year. Most positions are multi-faceted and require a lot of time to learn well. With lots of room for error and an entire season of high stress levels to work with, an applicant should be able to take the heat and learn as time passes.

Community Developer and Organizer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – May 23, 2018
I loved it! I became a Community Organizer and worked in three counties without a problem. I did this for a total of 5 years. When I recognized the fact that the community leaders were the problem to the many issues the communities were facing, I left and returned to teaching where I felt I could make a difference!
I was working with so many types of people!
The community leaders were stubborn and did not want to collaborate!

I loved my time at United Way. We worked hard but played hard. Such great people to work with - I still keep in touch with them to this day even though I live in Chicago. We have 'alumni' get togethers ;)
