    Campaign Director Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Interview Details

    Within one week of submitting the online application, I received an initial email from Human Resources to set up a phone interview -- expectation for 45 mins. After this conversation, the Recruiter advised they would be speaking with the local chapter and would follow-up within one to two weeks, whether or not the decision was to move forward. About 2 weeks later, I was invited for an in-person with the local Operations Director. We met for about an hour and spoke more specifically about the role, requirements and culture within the chapter. They advised they would be in touch and about 1 week later, I was invited to meet back with that same Ops Dir, the Executive Director, Patient Services Manager and a Board member. About 1 week later, I received the verbal offer and was asked to verify 3 professional references as well as submit to a background check.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Interview Details

    5 interviews over a period of 3 months. Began with a phone interview where basic experience type questions were asked. Second interview was a series of interviews with all of the local staff. Everyone from the office manager to the Director got a turn to interview. Third interview was back to phone. Fourth interview took place about an hour and a half from my home. I needed to travel from my home to another city to meet the "team" there. Then i was interviewed by the ED, a national director, my director, and every member of the team, one at a time. After hours of interviewing, I was given a vague outline, 5 minutes to prep, and told to give a "sales pitch" to the entire team. Finally one more phone interview and a hiire

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Interview Details

    2 telephone interviews and 1 in person interview with a team. Realized none of the interviewers knew what they were talking about pertaining to the position. They all looked and talked like they came from the same neighborhood. Workplace culture seemed insular, closed.

    Interview Questions
    • None. These guys had no idea what they were doing. It felt like they just wanted to get over with it.   View Answer

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    It's a 2 step process: a phone interview and then an in person interview. I felt like getting the in person interview means you have a pretty good chance at getting the position.

    The phone interview asked the standard interview questions: team building, interests, goals, etc. It wasn't extremely casual, nor was it super professional. The in person interview asks a few more questions. It's definitely a lot more casual and laid back. Overall, a positive interview process.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Interview Details

    I scheduled an interview quickly with the LTN Manager. Dress business professional, a full suit isn't needed. They asked a series of questions about weaknesses, and big picture or detail oriented, generic questions. Make sure you ask questions about the job. They are very polite and fun, so make sure you smile. Dress clean and professionally.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Interview Details

    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.
