    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AARP.

    Interview Details

    Applied via LinkedIn with a resume and cover letter. Phone interview with talent manager went really well. Brought in for an interview with VP and team manager, extremely revenue driven. The building was huge, walking through the various floors, departments, and hallways, I just got a disconnected vibe—no smiles, no nods, no acknowledgement for another human being in an elevator with you, nothing. That didn't read super promising for a welcoming work environment.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at AARP.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview not long after I applied for the position. The interview was over the phone with AARP's HR Director, and it was very straightforward with no surprises. It was actually a pleasant interview. They requested writing samples and I forwarded them along. Currently waiting to hear back about the next step.

    IT Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at AARP.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter that went very well and then I had one with the hiring manager that also went well. I then advanced to an in person interview with the hiring manager and a panel interview in DC. The panel interview was challenging but not because the questions were difficult, it was because for one hour you have 4 different people asking you totally unrelated questions. The only process the interview seemed to follow was that the questions were asked in a counter clockwise order. I never received any communication from anyone after I left the building. No one returned my phone call or email. I was really excited about this opportunity and company but now after being treated so poorly after the interview my only regret is going in the first place and trusting that a recruiter would be respectful. Everyone should be treated with common courtesy, even candidates. It has always been my policy to give feedback within three days whenever possible.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions but I did find that the panel members had a hard time relating to industries outside of their own professional experience and you have only a minute or two per question to try to help them understand or relate. I believe individual interviews would work better for the position I was being interviewed for.   Answer Question

    Vice President, Strategic Alliances Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AARP in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very slow process. They want to be fast moving, but they aren't. It seems to me if you want to change corporate culture you would indeed emulate that during the process. Have to know someone to get the job - network is the only way in. The recruiter didn't even know about the COO telling them who to hire - seems to be a waste of time for everyone.

    Research Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at AARP in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was an interview for another job at AARP where I was already employed. AARP moves about as slowly as the gov. I had a screening interview with HR with your basic questions - why you want the job, why you want to make the move, reviewing your qualifications. Next an interview with the hiring manager who asked specifics about data analysis and wanted detailed responses proving that I could do advanced data analysis. Some behavioral interview questions like how do you deal with difficult people and give examples.
