    Interview Details

    I filled out the online application and followed up on the phone with the office contact about setting up the interview. They emailed me back, I came in for a face to face interview, asked me normal interview questions. Called me soon after for a second round of interviews and then got offered the job.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via emailed and an interview was set up for the following week.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Alzheimer's Association.

    Interview Details

    After applying, a phone interview was conducted to get to know me. The interviewer was very pleasant and engaging. The interviewer asked relevant questions about the position and my resume. The next step was to conduct a face-to-face interview, which took longer to schedule than planned, but only by a few days. This was a little frustrating, but people do get busy and some things have to be re-prioritized.

    Interview Questions
    • What did you do with your time when unemployed (in college or high school too)?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Alzheimer's Association in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process consisted of a question and answer of simple questions as to why I wanted to be a volunteer. Followed by a back round check. I did notice that almost everyone on staff was Jewish. Though that did not bother me because I can work with any ethnicity.

    Senior Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Alzheimer's Association.

    Interview Details

    Applied for a position and it took about a month for them to connect with me. I had an initial phone screening that lasted about 20-30 mintues. Asked me various basic questions about my experience and past employment. About a week later I was asked to do an in person interview with the person that would oversee my position. That interview was about 45-60 mintues. Again, background, getting to know me, personality check. After that I had a 30 minute group interview with a few people whom were to be on my team. More casual, getting to know you feel.

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't any difficult questions. More about my background and experience and what I could bring to the position.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    About a week after the rounds of interviews, I was called and offered the position and offered a starting rate. I countered back as I felt the pay wasn't right for the position. They countered back with their final offer and said it was all based on past pay from the previous job with a percentage increase and it wasn't really specific for the job. They obviously had a cap but weren't willing to meet that cap only go a percentage above the previous job.
