    Interview Details

    They reached out to me via email for a first, then second interview. I was asked to take a personality test after the first interview. I was also asked to submit an application to the national organization for approval before proceeding to the second interview. It was a pretty standard experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed 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

    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.

    District Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Learning for Life Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Boy Scouts of America in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    During a college career fair, I spoke with a Representative. They asked typical questions like why are you interested in us, what experience do you have, etc. I wrote down my information and he gave me a business card. Several days later I was contacted to have an on-campus interview. I was interviewed by two people. First, I had to go take this quiz on a computer. It was a basic personality quiz asking you how you would react or what you would do in certain situations, are you a leader or a follower, etc. Then I came back and they called to find out my score. I passed so the interview continued. They asked the typical questions: where do you see yourself in 5 years?, how do you feel about working with a variety of people?, what is it you are looking to gain from this position?, etc. Then at the end they gave me an application to fill out and mail. Several weeks later I was contacted by a branch to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview was a teleconference with two people interviewing you. They asked the standard questions and some new ones such as Why would you be bad at this job? What skills do you lack to succeed? If your past employer could rate you on a scale of 1 to 10, what would it be and why? What are your strengths and weaknesses? I ended up removing myself from the process as I found something closer to home.
