District Executive - St Louis
Saint Louis, MO

Interview Details – Submitted resume online. Interviewed in person on a Monday. Interview went REALLY well, interviewer wanted to hire me on the spot, but had to "follow all of the rules" and told me to return to take a test. Returned on a Thurs to take a "personality" test. Test results showed I was not a good fit for the organization.

Chief Financial Officer Interview

Chief Financial Officer
Santa Ana, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Boy Scouts of America in February 2012.

Interview Details – Very professional, company was focused on a certain professional designation which was only listed as desired in the job description but when it came down to it, was required. Seems like a great opportunity and a great culture. Would have loved to have had the the chance to go further in the interview process.

District Executive Interview

District Executive

Interviewed at Boy Scouts of America

Interview Details – The job was posted on the local council's website. They responded almost immediately and scheduled a phone interview for the next day. This was with the Office Manager, who brought me in the following Monday for an interview with the head scout for the distrcit. He arrived late and was not very polite about it. We talked about a lot of things initially like the reasons for my interest, my skills, what I thought of myself. However, he really stressed the position as sales and started asking about previous sales experience.

Interview Question – Stand up, pretend I am 10 years old and sell me the program.   Answer Question

District Executive Interview

District Executive

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Boy Scouts of America in September 2011.

Interview Details – As stated on many other reviews, The interview process is quite extensive. 1st, I met with the two head district guys. 2nd, I was asked to spend an entire work day with another D.E. 3rd, I had to come in for a computerized personality test. 4th, I had another 1:1 interview. 5th, I was asked to fill an application. After all this, I had to wait another 2 weeks to find out if I got the job out of 4 candidates.

If you're just starting this process, you need to fully understand the job (yes, you WILL have to wear a uniform). You need to ask yourself if you're willing to put yourself through the anguish of a 3 month hiring process just to be rejected or told that your record will be kept on file for future consideration. As qualified as I am, and as nice and easy going as they were, I thought I had the job. After all the buildup and trust building between myself and the interviewers, I was "rejected" via a paper letter that beat around the bush without directly saying that they decided on someone else.

Scout Executive Interview

Scout Executive

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Boy Scouts of America in April 2010.

Interview Details – Answered newspaper ad for this executive position. Screened by their inhouse manager to start, Second i/v was with the field manager. They paint a pretty picture but emphasize this is a career and not a job....don't take it just for paycheck as their are long irregular hours. I think I will take the jpb if offered.

I was fairly impressed with their personnel.
