    Interview Details

    After a screening phone interview in early spring, the HR said the accounting department is under re-organization so they won't have any interns during the summer. At the early June, the same HR contacted me again to set up an interview. I went in, a pretty conversational interview with my manager and got the offer right way, At the end of interview, he is actually showing me around and meeting people.

    Interview Questions
    • They actually asked about my cover letter, which I wrote 6 month ago and can't remember what I had put in there.... so better go back and check everything you sent to them.   Answer Question

    Vice President, Strategic Alliances Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AARP in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very slow process. They want to be fast moving, but they aren't. It seems to me if you want to change corporate culture you would indeed emulate that during the process. Have to know someone to get the job - network is the only way in. The recruiter didn't even know about the COO telling them who to hire - seems to be a waste of time for everyone.

    A high-up and experienced editor is in charge of hiring interns and did the one-on-one interview with me in the AARP Magazine office in Washington, DC. She asked about my experience and my writing skills. It was a very comfortable interview.

    Negotiation Details
    They were not very flexible when negotiating less hours, which made it difficult as a student. I know a friend of mine that would have been a great member of their team had to turn down the position because they weren't flexible with their hours.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AARP.

    Interview Details

    Applied via LinkedIn with a resume and cover letter. Phone interview with talent manager went really well. Brought in for an interview with VP and team manager, extremely revenue driven. The building was huge, walking through the various floors, departments, and hallways, I just got a disconnected vibe—no smiles, no nods, no acknowledgement for another human being in an elevator with you, nothing. That didn't read super promising for a welcoming work environment.
