I applied through college or university – interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (White Plains, NY).
The interview process was easy and quick. I applied for the position through school, and was contacted almost immediately. We scheduled an interview over the telephone. The interview was professional as to be expected. I was asked a series of questions pertaining to the society, and my experiences.

I submitted my resume with a friend and was contacted by LLS. Initial interview was a casual phone interview. After that I met with the Campaign Director for about an hour, and met the Executive Director for a little bit as well. I got called back for a third interview which will consist of a presentation.
- The Executive Directer was a bit off-putting, but nothing too crazy or out of the ordinary. Answer Question

The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Natick, MA) in March 2012.
1) Phone interview, 2) 1:1 interview 3) Group interview and a presentation on a case that they provide you when you come in for the interview. You have 20 min to prepare a 10 min presentation on the case.
Staff was very friendly, especially the lower management staff. They encouraged lots of questions and were very interested in getting to know you. Presentation was very appropriate in terms of assessing skill set but it was a little awkward. The staff asked virtually no questions and just stared; but was told I did an exceptional job. Other presentation style interviews were far more participatory and engaging.
The only other negative was that they were very vague on the hiring requirements and timeline (especially for a final candidate) which made it difficult to navigate other offers. They didn't really keep you in the loop and often went days to weeks between interviews before hearing anything. Sent the decision in the mail with no real explanation.
Overall, the interview process is intensive, but not overly difficult.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in September 2008.
The recruiting firm called and asked me for a detailed resume with salary history. I was reluctant to give the salary history but they pressured me to do so. After a lengthly phone interview with the recruiter I was scheduled for an in-person interview with a staff person from the national office. She was in town for one day to do all her interviews. She described the former candidate as having "bad boundaries". When I inquired about what that meant, she said they were "too close" to their Board members. She said she had to "straighten out" the problems the former candidate had caused. I asked how willing she felt the Board members would be to follow a new leadership style or strategy. She made it clear that she would be very "hands on" in seting any future strategy. Pay was good but I left feeling the next candidate would face a rocky road between "reporting up" and seeking to bring a new vision to the organization.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in January 2011.
Very kind and enthusiastic interviewers. Small work culture: it's just one branch of many. The interview on the phone seemed very easy and conversational. The group interview was with two of the higher up people in the branch. I felt comfortable.
