    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at AMA.

    Interview Details

    It was over all a horrible experience, and it should have been a clue to me that it would not be a good company to work for, but I needed the job at the time, So I took it. It took months to get through the whole process, not including the first month, when, after replying they were interested to my resume, hey told me they chose others to interview, and were not longer interested in me, and then a month later called back and told me they were interested. Hiring managers took days and weeks to get back to continue each next step in processs. HR seem useless and gave wrong information. But again, when you need a job, you unfortunately try and ignore most of the negative stuff.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at AMA in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was hired through a temp agency in Washington, DC. A set of resumes was sent to my boss from the temp agency, AMA uses The Choice, and she called me for a phone interview. The position I was interviewed for was filling in for a staff assistant who had been there for two years who was leaving to go to graduate school. I was asked standard interview questions like what's my biggest weakness and whether I knew how to use Microsoft Office products and handle a multi-line phone. I temped for six months after that I was hired full-time after a basic background check with no further interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult or unexpected. Probably the most difficult one to answer is what is your greatest weakness.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person – interviewed at AMA in June 2010.

    Not difficult. It's who you know and how well you are connected to the C level. Once you secure an interview and background are checked out, the job is pretty much yours. Remember AMA is a non profit organization, it's who you know.
