Campaign Coordinator Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Atlanta, GA) in November 2013.
Started with a phone interview, then had in-person interview with two people, then an in-person with three people (never including my manager), and one meeting with the director. The interview for three people consisted of a presentation I had to come up with, based on a short outline they give you literally the day before.
- What do you think your daily job duties will be / what the job will be like Answer Question
When they offer you a salary, tell them to give you a day to think about the offer. Then try to negotiate a couple thousand more.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (New York, NY).
First round is phone interview, then you get called in for an interview with a panel of staff (3-4 people will be in the room). Questions asked are standard for all interviews and staff will read them word for word. They're looking for specific examples, and for questions to be set up in full, comprehensive ways. Depending on the position, the next round is a presentation for this same staff (typically on another day), and then after that, you may meet with the head of the department.
- Know how to relate your experience to fundraising, even if you've never done it before. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (New York, NY).
Three rounds. First is the phone interview (very simple). Their entire interview process is scripted. Their staff is NOT allowed to ask anything more than what is written (hence the lack of creativity and robotic employees they are looking for). Second round is a book full of questions, suggestion: respond to each question with an example. VERY generic questions. Third round is a presentation. They give you a packet to read from and ask you to "sell a campaign" to a fake audience. They give you markers and a flip chart to use. They also ask you to input numbers on an excel document to see how you work with excel (know how to make a graph/chart on excel!)
I had a masters, asked for more money and they clearly said NO.

Any information I might give is no longer relevant, as the people with whom I interviewed have left or been fired. I first had a phone interview and then an in-person interview, both of which lasted about an hour.
