    AmeriCorps Member Interview

    Interview

    It's a frustrating process full of confusion and quick deadlines. There is no real interview process, at least for Corps Members. You submit your application, and then you wait for them to review your provided information and run some background checks. Figuring out where you are in the process is obnoxious, but it took only a month start to finish to hear a final yes. Also, the final yes is still conditional upon your completion of paperwork every 10 days.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at AmeriCorps.

    Interview

    Varies a lot based on the site--had interviews over Skype and phone, with some sites doing multiple rounds of interviews. Common questions across all were, "How prepared are you to live on the [low] VISTA living allowance?" "How are your Spanish skills? [since I was interviewing for Spanish-speaking nonprofits]"

    Mentor Recruiter Interview

    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    This position was referred to me, by someone that had oversight of the program. There was about 2 weeks between turning in my application and the actual interview process. The program was working directly with a School District so the Director of Community Engagement for the school district administered the interview. The interview was typical direct questions of -Tell me about yourself - Why are you interested in Americorps VISTA? - What skills (from experience) will you be able to bring to being a recruiter? -What are some challenges that you foresee and how will you maneuver? There was also a portion of time when the Director was trying to make sure that I knew what I was getting into and that it was volunteer... she wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to quit because she felt my education level was higher than many of the other volunteers.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult (standard general questions). The interview is more of a time of them getting to know you and an informational for seeing if it is an opportunity of interest.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. Americorps VISTA is a stipend program and you know the details of the stipend prior to interviewing.

    Interview

    Very lengthy, done completely over the phone. The process also required in-depth recommendation forms to be filled out by people who can attest to your character and abilities. There is also an in-depth questionnaire about your experience in community work and why you think you would make a good AmeriCorps.
