Part-time Coordinator Hope Lodge Interview

Part-time Coordinator Hope Lodge
Saint Louis, MO

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Cancer Society in September 2013.

Interview Details – I was first contacted by a member of HR from ACS headquarters in Atlanta. This HR member knew nothing about the actual position when I asked her questions, so then the director of the Hope Lodge facility contacted me. She then scheduled a phone interview with me, which consisted of her asking me about my strengths, weaknesses, personal experience, inspiring moment at my previous job, and a time in which I had difficulties at my previous job but was successful. From there she let me ask questions regarding Hope Lodge and the position. At the end of the phone interview we scheduled an in person interview for the next week. At the face-to-face interview we went over my resume, we took a tour of the facilities, we talked about the pay/time commitment, and then I was allowed to ask more questions.

Interview Question – The most difficult question to answer was: "Why are you the best candidate for this position?". The unexpected question was: "If a volunteer or other employee blamed you for something you did not do, how would you address the situation?".   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was asked how much I made at my previous job. I was then told the highest they were able to give for the position was $0.75 less than I was making per hour. I accepted despite this, and at the end it came out to a less than $0.50 pay cut.
