    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Hospital Association.

    Interview

    I was contacted through email that I was selected for a phone interview. In this email, I given a list of questions that had to answer and email back. My first interview was over the phone with the HR Manager who asked a few general interview questions. I was told that if I was selected for a second interview, I would be contacted in the next two weeks. After a month, I received an email that they would like to invite me for an in-person panel interview. For this interview I had to prepare a 15 minute presentation about myself that covered 8 questions that they provided. In the interview, four people were physically present and one person was on the phone. The interview was informal and everyone made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. After the presentation, the panel asked general questions about things I mentioned in my presentations as well as other questions for about 30 minutes.Then, I had a one-one interview with a Director that was also on the panel interview. These questions were more detailed technical questions related to research.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Hospital Association.

    Interview

    The association contacted me both via phone and email, then scheduled for phone interview. Initially, I found that the interviewer's description of this job online were quite different from what he described to me over the phone. The interviewer was also very disorganized. After our initial phone interview, he said that he would follow-up with me in the next week. Instead, he followed-up weeks later only to ask "where we were" in the process. During this conversation, his notes on me were also inaccurate. It was as if he had notes on another candidate. After hearing me rehash our original conversation, his voice was less excited and I knew then that I would probably not get another call back. And, yes, I never heard back from them since. I found the whole process to be unprofessional and frustrating.

    Interview

    Applied online, was contacted for a phone interview with HR shortly after and had a 20 minute interview with the HR rep. The manager for the position followed up with another phone interview several days later. I was then invited to Chicago for an in-person panel presentation and one-on-one interview. I was given a pre-work assignment with four questions to cover in the 10-15 minute presentation. I Traveled to Chicago two weeks later for the interview, gave the presentation and answered questions from a group of approximately 10 people for 45 minutes. This was followed by a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager. I was told that I would have a decision by the end of that week. My references were contacted the next day and I was offered and accepted the job two days later. Overall, it was a very positive experience. The format was very thorough and gave me the opportunity to meet the team I would be working with and get a feeling for the duties and responsibilities required by the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Hospital Association (Chicago, IL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a twenty-minute phone interview by a recruiting officer first and asked to fill out a fairly detailed set of questions about my experience (five questions with sub-questions). After that interview, I was told that I would be interviewing with a five-person panel and then have one-on-ones and that they wanted me to prepare a 20-minute presentation (powerpoint suggested) to the panel. I was told that the presentation should include answers to another set of detailed questions. I was also asked to bring a portfolio of my work.

    Senior Communications Specialist Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Hospital Association (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I received the following email today: "Thank you again for applying for the Sr. Communications Specialist. Given the date you applied we may or may not have reviewed your resume. We wish to inform you that we have currently filled the Sr. Communications Specialist position. Best wishes with your job search and we hope you will consider future employment with the American Hospital Association. Please feel free to review current Job Opportunities on the aha.org website. Sincerely, Human Resources American Hospital Association" I can't believe they would send something out like this. I find it to be really lazy and unprofessional. And the insinuation that "based on when I applied" my resume wasn't even reviewed, as if the fault laid with me in responding to their vacancy announcement. (I applied when they first advertised the position).
