    Applied online, received a email from a event specialist about setting up a time to do a in person interview. The process was very simple and easy.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

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

    Interview Details

    The interview process was relative to the VP in charge. My VP at the time was rather straight forward, however, he's since left. I did have an opportunity to negotiate my salary with HR when the time came, and while there was little/no wiggle room in their offer, we were able to negotiate a 'signing bonus'.

    • Given my interviewer, the questions were fairly straightforward.   Answer Question
