    Truck Driver/Donation Pick Up Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dade City, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied at a local job fair. Was given an on the spot interview. The interview was brief and the person interviewing me told me they'd give me a call in a week or so. Two weeks go by and then I'm finally called back and given the first of two interviews. I was asked typical questions about my background and driving record. Told them everything was clean. The person interviewing me seemed impressed and said they'd call me soon about a second interview. Another two weeks go by and I'm called again for the second interview. This time I'm interviewed by a different manager. I'm pretty much asked the same questions all over again. Strangely I'm also asked questions that have absolutely nothing to do with the job I'm applying for.

    Specialist- Volunteer Operations Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Habitat for Humanity in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied a week ago and received a phone call from the hiring department. She was very nice and wanted to go over a few questions with me. The phone interview was formal with a casual tone. I was asked about my abilities, experience, and what I would be expected to add to the organization. From there we went over my salary expectations, and benefits package. We went over my availability and am expected to hear from them in the next few days about a possible second interview, in person, with the youth departments hiring person.

    Volunteer Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a Volunteer Coordinator position. Went right to an in-person interview without conducting a phone interview. The staff seemed competent and friendly - low pressure. They ended up hiring internally so it seemed a bit like they were interviewing a few people to go through the motions. The job sounded like it was primarily paperwork/data entry focused due to their high volume of volunteers. I was more interested in the interaction aspect.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked the usual - How have you handled a difficult situation with a volunteer, What are you most/least excited about, what motivates you...no curveballs.   Answer Question

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and immediately was called and had a phone interview with a member of HR. Basic questions (why do you want this job? what are you doing now?) Was called back days later and asked to come in for a face-to-face interview with three different attorneys. I thought the interviews went quite well, and was in the main office for over three hours. I followed up with the HR contact every other week for about a month and a half. Was given cursory responses. After about three months (and me finally just giving up on the job) I was told the company had decided not to hire anyone for the position. I guess business is business but it would have been nice to have been at least given a "thank you for your time and interest."

    Executive Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chambersburg, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chambersburg, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication: I sent resume and cover letter through USPS. Chair of search committee replied with interview date and time, leaving messages via email and voice mail.

    The group did not seem to view the position as significant, as they scheduled a series of candidate interviews in consecutive blocks of 30 minutes each.

    Members of the search committee were very pleasant. They stated that they were physically tired from the effort of holding up the organization and recognized a need for changed management style. However, they did not appear ready to professionalize the position.

    In fact, they opened the interview with the statement that they were looking for full-time accomplishments on part-time hours.

    I was told that I came second. I would have liked the job, but it would have been very low-ball in terms of pay.

    It took about 4-5 weeks for HR to call me after submitting my resume. The interview was one on one with hiring manager. I had to call and send e-mail to ask about further interviewing and was finally informed that I was not being considered. Overall the experience was positive.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview to reduce the number of applicants. Then was given a panel interview. Phone interview went extremely well in my view. Then face to face interview also went well even though I felt a little nervous. I prepared by going online and doing research on the non-profit organization as well as interview questions. I felt prepared. Was made to feel at ease with the interviewers and felt I did well.
