    Membership Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at American College of Surgeons in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was lengthy. Take great caution when considering and applying to any positions available in membership and the division of education. The hiring managers were rude, condescending, and did not ask relevant questions that were related to the role. The hiring team rushed through the entire interview (lasting about 25 minutes); the first half of conversation was them trying to figure out what position within membership I actually applied to and the second half of the interview encompassed the hiring leads side-stepping (in a condescending tone) relevant questions that I had - as the interviewee - in regards to the overall health of the division and the culture and climate of working in membership.

    Interview Questions
    • There was none. The interviewers were unorganized and cold, and at times, really unprofessional, taking questions that I asked of them in regards to the division, personal (getting defensive).   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The overall hiring experience is lengthy and unorganized, with department heads reflecting an attitude of haughtiness when working with their employees. I picked up a bad taste in my mouth just talking to them, and overall felt this would be the true climate of this division.

    Regulatory and Quality Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American College of Surgeons.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. HR contacted for a phone interview. Complete phone interview within a few days. Called 3 days later for an in person interview. At the in person interview I met with the the two managers I would be working with. The first interview went well, she explained the position, her role and how this position would be of an assistance. The second manager came in. At first glance she seemed to have made up her mind about me. Throughout the interview she repeatedly asked the same question, without listening to my answer. Then when asked a question, she was rude. After meeting with her, she changed my perspective of this office. As a manager, you should be able to listen, and I could see from the interview I would not be able to work with her from her lack of attention to detail and to someone who would be working with her.
