Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

Interview

The process took about one month. The first is a phone interview from volunteer service volunteer. The second is from the department of your background. There are more than ten questions. Almost all of them are behavior questions. They may ask some questions based on your background, like: Why you chose XX as your major? What is your current level of your major?

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to the volunteer specialist who was tasked to find and interview interns each semester. Keep in mind an internship with the local Red Cross chapter is NON-PAID (but a summer internship at the ARC headquarters in Washington, D.C. is paid) It was a quick process. In one week the volunteer specialist contacted me for an interview, I went to do the interview, and they hired me two days later.They are looking for college students that are good at what they do (whether it's in finance, communication, outreach, or casework), but are also motivated by the mission statement of "alleviating human suffering" and want to make a difference in the community. If you only care about money, the Red Cross isn't the company for you.

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Washington, DC) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was very happy with the interview process for the American Red Cross. I was interviewed over the phone as well as in person for a position. The interviewers were fair, open and friendly. Though the questions seemed simple, I realized that they were fishing for very specific experience and knowledge. I recommend complete honesty and straightforwardness (while maintaining professionalism, obviously) because I truly believe that they will offer you the position if you are a good fit and if not, they know that you would not be content in the position.
