    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. I received an email probably 3 weeks after I applied. I had a 30 min phone interview and was scheduled for an in person interview the following week. I thought the interview went well, everyone was nice. Very basic and general questions. The interviewers were reading from a list so it was very standard. Upon leaving, I was given a tour and told to expect an assessment from HR the following week. I never received that email. I followed up the next week, a Monday, and was emailed the rejection Friday. I was under the impression that I had made it to the next step, but had not. It was a pleasant experience, but I was disappointed in the ending. I don't think you should give false information, which essentially is what I was given.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

    Interview

    Lengthy process with up to six [or more] interviews, most over phone and Skype. Often takes in excess of six months to hire. Very conversational and overall pleasant. Process is led by the local hiring manager, however interviews will be held through various levels of management across the country, generally ending with the VP or SVP at the National Executive Office in Memphis.

    Interview Questions

    • Heavily focused in behavioral interviewing. Lots of situational "tell me about a time when..." types of questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They met my requested salary, so in my case there was no negotiation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in August 2014.

    Interview

    It was a 2 part panel interview. The questions are long winded and confusing. They do ask you to do a sales pitch of a ridiculous item such as Pepsi, cooking spray, marbles.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    They had not prepared questions, so the interview was unfocused. One interviewer abruptly walked out in the middle of the interview. The other interviewers were embarrassed and stunned silent for a few moments, but continued on. Clearly, the interviewers did not get along.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I could sense tension among the women on the panel, and it made me apprehensive about what kind of environment I would be working in if I was hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Had 1 phone and 1 Skype interview, than brought to Memphis for interview. Seemed to go very well, was even shown were my work area would be, and person who would be my supervisor even sent text to recruiter saying all was going well at mid-afternoon. Then met with two young ladies from marketing, thought that went well, but was informed that they thought I wasn't a fit," could not put their finger on why", was all I was told. However, my strong feeling, especially after that very weak reason why I was discarded, is my age, being considerably older than them. Very disappointed, I do qualify, and can work with and report to anyone. I am sad that the high ideals of St. Jude, do not prevent age discrimination. That said, they do a wonderful work and have great results, and I will continue to donate to St. Jude and encourage everyone else to do the same.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was really disorganized. I had scheduled an interview and reconfirmed the time with the person I set it up with. When I showed up for the interview she was not there and no one knew that I was coming in for the interview. I was really disappointed in the way they handled the interview after.

    Regional Event Specialist Interview

    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The recruitment process took four months from start to finish. I spoke with HR twice, then had two hour long phone screens, and was finally brought into the office for a face-to-face interview. At the in person interview, I was asked to complete a project that took hours to complete. During the interview, I was rushed through the presentation. I spoke with three people, only one of whom was actually onsite. Ultimately, I was turned down for the position based on a lack of experience in an area I had been very clear about during my first communication with St. Jude.

    Fundraising Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

    Interview

    Found the application through my college and contacted HR at the Tampa office to submit my resume and cover letter. I had to call back a couple of weeks later to make sure they had my information and we scheduled a phone interview. On the phone was an HR representative and an employee in charge of fundraising. We basically went over my resume and I was asked what I knew about St. Jude and why I wanted to work for them. They didn't ask many behavior based questions. I was asked my strengths and weaknesses. And how my experience would apply to their position
