Innovation Program Manager Interview

Innovation Program Manager

I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA).

Interview Details – This comment is for the AAA Club Partners division of AAA.

Process took ~ 4 weeks. Started off w/convo w/recruiter. Screening went well, as it lead to a convo w/the hiring mgr. Hiring mgr convo was good, he liked my energy, my frankness, and that I had worked w/technology companies where change was common, which it was not in this environment. He even indicated that no one he's screened has all of the qualifications, but that I rated well. In terms of next steps, was told to give it ~ 2 weeks before following-up, unless they contacted me first.

So, I waited. To the day, reached out to the recruiter, who responded that the hiring mgr was still screening candidates, and to follow-up end of week. And I did, and was then informed by recruiter that the hiring mgr was in the final stages w/2 candidates.

I responded to the recruiter that had I known earlier that the hiring mgr was this far along w/other candidates, I would have appreciated a follow-up vs. having me wait for 2 weeks to follow-up. Never got a response to my comment.

Travel Interview

Travel
Providence, RI

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA) in March 2009.

Interview Details – First submit resume for job opening. If the Human Relations department is interested they call you in for an interview. If they feel you qualify then you move to the next step. That step is to set up an interview with management. Assuming that interview goes well you are called back to address some questions they have given you to think about.

Interview Question – On the day of my HR interview the person I was scheduled with was out sick, so I was interviewed by a different HR person. Then I scheduled an interview with management. During that interview, which was going well, it came out in conversation that the HR person assigned to me had not actually interviewed me. The manager barked at me "and when were you going to tell me you had not been interviewed by the right person??!"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very little negotiating. Everything is spelled out in the company policies.

Claims Representative Interview

Claims Representative
Costa Mesa, CA

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA).

Interview Details – Applied online for the position Jun 5th. 3 weeks later on June 25th I received an e-mail asking if I was still interested in the position.

 The next day I was sent an online assessment, the questions were not all that hard and was told I passed the assessment the next day.

 Scheduled to have a face to face interview the next week. Drove to the location and talked to HR manager. Very easy questions and a review of the job description. Was told to come back for a 2nd interview in a week.

Showed up for 2nd interview with approximately 12 candidates. A short presentation by made by the company. We were taken into a mock customer claim situation. I did well and was walked back to continue the process. There were 4 candidates at this point. I was interviewed by another person and asked how I would handle stress/ a difficult situation/ my goals. I figured I did well.

A week later I received a phone call and an offer. I was offered more salary than I was expecting or was advertised. Offer was dependent on passing a background check and drug screen. (Hair Test)

Interview Question – If you suspect that the caller is lying to you and exploiting the system what do you do about it?   View Answer

Applied ERS (Emergency Roadside Service) Interview

Applied ERS (Emergency Roadside Service)
Long Beach, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Automobile Association (AAA) in August 2012.

Interview Details – Applied in July of 2012 was asked to take the online assessment, received an email saying I passed the test and would be contacted within 3 days after 5 days I didn't get a call so I call HR and he's sounds shocked to hear no ones contacted me so he tells me the day before they finished interviewing but that they'd still (PITY) interview me even tho the positions were filled I went in for a quick simple interview that same day.. I wasn't offered the position. Months later I applied again in March 2013 I passed the assessment test again then the next day got an email from HR saying he couldn't call me for an interview because he was pressed for time so he asked me to answer the following questions in the email which I did and about two days later he calls me and says the format wasn't acceptable because I sent it from my ipad so he asked me to resend it from a computer which I did and I didn't hear anything back...I check my email and there's the rejection email stating other candidates made the decision pool harder....mind you I met all the job requirements and have passed the phone interview when HR conducted the phone interview the correct way...over the phone. When he called me to tell me the format was wrong why couldn't he have done the phone interview right way. HR needs to be better second time starting the process to have it fall through
