    Internship Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview Details

    I didn't initially have a phone interview. They had me come in a couple days after I submitted my application. I was interviewed by two of the coordinators for that department. They were super nice and easy to talk to. Cracking jokes now and then. They asked me about my background and what I wanted to do in the near future. They wanted to know what I wanted to get out of the internship and what I had to offer. It was pretty standard.

    Though I didnt get the internship position for them, they were kind enough to refer me to one of their colleagues that was also interviewing folks to intern for her too. When the interviewer (my boss now) called, we talked about my background and went through standard questions to follow up what I had previously mentioned in the other interview. I started immediately after.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at American Heart Association in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a recruiter over the phone and then invited to an in person interview a week later with the hiring manager. I thought it went well; questions were not too difficult at all but their are several stages in the interview process. I wasn't called back after the first in person interview despite having all the qualifications and it seeemingly going well. I would be curious to know what they're looking for.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is extremely detailed and in some ways overly complicated. When going in for the lengthy interview, be sure to have fully studied your resume and to also dig back into your career to recall projects, tasks, etc. Finally, be sure to go back to your college and high school experiences... anyone remember what they got on their ACT / SAT?

    Regional Development Director (Fundraising) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Fort Walton Beach, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Walton Beach, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at American Heart Association in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    First communication was a phone call screening. It was pretty brief, the woman asked basic questions about past jobs and why I wanted to work for AHA.
    I was then scheduled for an in person interview. I came very prepared and felt very qualified for the job. The woman interviewing me was the region Vice President, the position's direct report. She was very candid about the position and said it was a very tough job and that I would either love it or hate it. She said previous women leave the position within a year, or are in for several years. She didn't make the position seem appealing at all, rather scared me away. Afterwards, I contacted a former fundraising director and she told me to run, so I did. I was called back for a second interview and declined. HR will submit a background check.

    Interview Questions
    • The first one on one interview was more or less conversation in which I was asked about my previous positions and why I wanted to leave my current job. I felt I asked more questions since I had no experience in fundraising. I assume the 3rd step group interview is when the more difficult questions come in.   Answer Question

They begin by a telephone interview which is then followed by the applicant taking an online personality review. After those two steps are completed, the applicant is scheduled for a face to face interview. The interview is very comprehensive! they use the Chronological In Depth Survey (CIDS) questionaire. After that the applicant may be asked to come back for a more informal second interview.

    Grassroots Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at American Heart Association in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted the same day I applied and scheduled a screening interview over the phone. The interviewer called late and informed me that her computer was down and that she would not be able to access her planned questions but we should get started anyway. She seemed to be making up questions on the fly and the conversation was stilted. At the end of the interview she giggled, before hanging up. By far one of the strangest interviews I've ever had.
