    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity.

    Interview

    I had applied via the career services department at my university, where they did the first round of interviewing. The people who made it to the second round were then interviewed by Habitat for Humanity directors at their offices. They were really good at communicating with me before my interview. When I arrived and got settled into the meeting room, everything went smoothly. They're really nice and willing to answer any of your questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. I was contacted for an interview and within a week, I had Skyped with two employees and was offered the position. This was several months after applying though. The Skype interview was casual and more conversational. They were very friendly and the questions were relatively predictable.

    Senior Specialist, Knowledge Sharing Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Atlanta, GA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is very slow going. In the company's defense, the HR process involves upper level management, including the CEO, reviewing every candidate for every position. In some ways that is nice that everyone is involved in hiring, but it does slow the hiring process down very much.

    I interviewed with HR for a position in April by phone, followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager in May. I was told it would take a couple of months before I would hear back. Finally, I was contacted in late July to interview in person in August. Once I interviewed in person, it took another 6 weeks for an offer to be made.

    I understand that my interview process took slightly longer than others, but don't be surprised if interviews take months to completed. At least the HR team usually informs you the steps along the way so you are not caught off guard.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty typical of any interview. The thing they seemed to focus on for me was my willingness to learn new technologies and how the position would challenge me or help me grow professionally.   Answer Question

    Web Content Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The interview process took a while. I applied for the job online and then didn't hear back from anyone for a couple of months. After that, though, things moved pretty quickly. I interviewed with 5 people, I think -- the communications director, a few editors, and the web developers.

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate, but they said my number wasn't in the budget. For a nonprofit organization, though, they paid a competitive salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Lorain, OH) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was through Mature Services. It was comprehensive as to my employment experience, my expectations for employment, and how I would be assisted in future employment opportunities with Mature Services and For Profit organizations.

    Interview Questions

    • There were none per se, but I did feel that I would like to stay with the Not For Profit organizational opportunities available. At my age I do not really want to be employed in other venues.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation process, it's pretty cut and dried considering the services they offer for mature workers. I did ask for part-time which they were able to accommodate.
