    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by email to complete an online personality assessment and schedule a phone interview. The online assessment took about 45 minutes. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and covered an overview of my work history, strengths and weaknesses. We also discussed the requirements of the position and my expectations regarding salary. They let me know the next steps in the interview/hiring process. I am scheduled for a second interview with the local hiring manager in the next ten days. Expect a decision very soon.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at American Heart Association in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and they sent a request for a phone screen interview about 2 hours after I applied. I had the phone interview the next day. After the phone interview, the head of department wanted to speak with me, and that happened 2 days later. She seemed nice and interested in me. The same day, HR emailed saying that the head of department wanted to meet with me in-person and go through the in-person interview, which would be the final round. He explained that it would take about 3 hours and that I would need to meet with approximately 10 people. However, due to the head being in a different state, the interview would need to be scheduled a month later, giving me a week's range of when it would happen. The week before the scheduled week, I sent a few emails asking when this would be scheduled. They ended up telling me on Friday that they were no longer considering my application.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at American Heart Association in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I recently interviewed at AHA. The interviews were pleasant and timely with direction questioning. I walked away feeling like I had great understanding of what the position would entail on a day to day bases. I also got a sense that they have strong teamwork and management support. All of the people I came in contact with via phone or in person had a great attitude and general interest in me as a potential candidate.

    Youth Market Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Augusta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Augusta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    First I applied online, then I was setup with a recruiter that contacted me by phone and gave me more detail about the job. Next I had to take a personality test of some kind. Then I interviewed with the regional director in the area for about an hour. The interview was extensive and the interviewer asked detailed questions regarding situations and previous employment. Lastly, I met the regional director to go through a Skype interview with someone even further up the chain of command. Once again, the questions were tedious and required a fair amount of preparation.

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at American Heart Association in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted via email for interview on the Dallas office. The first interview was very basic with HR. Then I was interviewed by the supervisor. He was very professional and the Interview went really well. I was called two days later for a second interview with the supervisor and two other managers. It was a 2 hr. interview focused on my work experience. I was called again for a third interview with another manager who seemed very uninterested talking about the last night party with her friends.

    Temporary Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a temporary recruiter on the American Heart Association careers page. A few days later one of their recruiters called me. She conducted an initial phone screen during the phone screen we discussed the position and my previous experience. It was either the next day or the day after they requested a in person interview. I then went to the offices in Dallas to interview. The interview style was a panel of tow managers and myself. Shortly into the interview I realized that even though the job description didn't list a firm understanding of medical terminology, for this position it was going to be key and I was not a good fit for this position. I received a call a week later and was informed the position was cancelled.

    Technology Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a quick phone screen by a HR rep. I then got a call from the hiring manager a few days later for about an hour interview over the phone along with another employee who was performing the same job function. This was all job specific (related skills/experience). Next was an in person interview a couple weeks later. This was EXHAUSTING! Same two employees who interviewed me over the phone and another manager. Typical CIDS interview. it lasted 3.5 hours! Questions were completely irrelevant to the job. They asked the same 4 questions of EVERY SINGLE job that was on my resume. It's hard to be attentive during this entire process and to stay on track because of the length. I became exhausted and just didn't feel like answering any more of the questions. it was way too long! They were very uptight and almost made it uncomfortable to interview. I didn't feel like I would have fit with this company anyway.
