    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview

    Very in-depth interviews, only hire top employees. Expect at least 3 interviews, nearly 5 hours total, before you get an offer or decision. Make sure to talk about all experience as even things you might think are irrelevant add up to the total sum of your experience and make you a total package here. The end result is a very strong team and top employees and it really makes for a great place to work. Know your resume and have specific examples to back up your "generic statements." Have a copy of your resume with you when you do the in person interviews.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview

    The AHA is notoriously slow to hire people. It may take months before you are hired. One employee actually forgot they applied and was caught off guard when they called wanting to schedule an interview.

    You will be interviewed a minimum of 3 times. The first interview is a screening interview via telephone. The 2nd round is an in person interview to talk about your experience. If you are going to the 3rd round, you will be sent an insane assessment to take. Its approx. 350 questions. Your 2nd interview will be based on what the assessment says about you.

    Interview Questions

    • You will get an out of left field question that is taken from the results of your assessment.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation depends on the VP hiring you. Some will try hard to get you more, some will not.

    The interview process was 5-7 weeks. The first interview was about an hour long phone screening interview with the HR department. The 2nd was a one hour Skype interview with the direct manager. The 3rd phase was a 100 question personality test and Microsoft applications test which took about 1.5-2 hours to complete. I was flown to the 4th part of the interview was in-person with the direct supervisor for the position and the supervisor's boss for a 4 hour CIDS style interview. For the 5th part, i was asked to arrange 45 minute 'interviews' with each of my references as wells as participate in an extensive background check.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared for a CIDS style interview i.e. Chronological In-Depth Structured interview. This requires you to answer the same series of questions for everything listed on your resume and application. I was asked questions starting from high school to my current position (spanning the last 15 years of my life). The CIDS style also requires you to rate your previous supervisors by describing their strengths and weaknesses. You will also be asked to list and explain your own strengths and weaknesses.   1 Answer
