    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Worth, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Fort Worth, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Took 4 hours of tests to have a phone interview that lasted less than 3 mins. It was disappointing to hear how "annoyed" she sounded. I seemed to be an inconvenience to her day. I could tell when she didn't like an answer as she would "sigh" and interrupt with next question.

    Corporate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for a job out of state and was contacted the next day to take the online assessment and to schedule the first phone interview. The assessment took about 30 minutes to complete.The recruiter I spoke with was really friendly and sounded enthusiastic about my consideration for the position. A week and a half went by and I was contacted for a second phone interview with a team member in the department I was interviewing to join. We had a great conversation and she told me that she was going to move me along to a third interview that would be conducted over Skype (because I am out of state). A week later I sent the recruiter an email to see where they were with their decision with the position as I am interviewing elsewhere and moving along quickly. She responded and said they would likely extend an offer to a local candidate. I was a little disappointed that I wasn't contacted to let me know that I wasn't going to be moved along in the interview process whenever that decision was made. My experience with interviewing with large organizations (with their level of infrastructure) has been more communicative in terms of not telling candidates they are moving forward. Overall, I would apply for positions with other opportunities in this organization.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Raleigh, NC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    One person interviewing me was checking their emails while I was answering questions. Never before had I seen such unacceptable behavior during an interview. How rude?? Most people will tell you they're waiting for an important call or email. No such warning with this character.
