I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN).
I applied for a position coordinating regional events. I had a phone interview with one of the hiring managers that went fairly well, but that was the last I heard. There was no follow up as far as a rejection letter, or anything really.
- They asked a lot of situational questions, very behavioral style interview. 1 Answer

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

I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
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.
- Heavily focused in behavioral interviewing. Lots of situational "tell me about a time when..." types of questions. Answer Question
They met my requested salary, so in my case there was no negotiation.
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN) in August 2014.
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.
- When was a time you had to work with difficult coworkers? Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Met quite a few people across all parts of the organization. The process was pretty standard, no real surprises along the way. It helps to know some one already working there to get your resume seen and a possible interview.
- Nothing unexpected. Pretty typical interview questions Answer Question
Was able to negotiate salary because of move to Memphis.
- Declined OfferNegative Experience
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.
- What does the internet have to do with radio? Answer Question
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.

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

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

I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Alsac - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Boston, MA).
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.
- Most of the questions asked were fairly standard and fair. Answer Question
