    Volunteer Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    Unorganized and pathetic.. First you apply, wait for a couple months, receive a phone call from someone not even in the same state as your job. Phone interview, Interview with 2 people, then about 6 people. But it is very unprofessional... I guess that would be the first sign of a failing organization. Upper management trying to interview!!! They can't even hold on to donors....and be good to employees!

    I applied online – interviewed at American Red Cross.

    1 phone interview and two in person interviews. The in person interviews had no less than 4 people interviewing you at once. Very nice though. They really cared if you would be a good fit for the team and not just another body.

    Major Gifts Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the job online.
    Two weeks later, received an email to schedule a phone interview.
    The phone interview was very dry and included only experience related questions. If you are relying heavily on your good personality to dazzle during an interview, this one will prove difficult for you.
    More than two weeks later, I received an email requesting a face-to-face interview for the following day.
    I met with two employees, both of which were very friendly. The second interview was more about getting to know my personality rather than my experience. the second interview also had more information about the position.
    I received a phone call two weeks after this interview with an offer from the company. Until the offer, the salary for the position was not made available to me.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult, but I cannot express how very impersonal the phone interview was. Don't feel discouraged if you don't feel you had chemistry with your interviewer.   Answer Question

    Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview. The interview read a checklist of pre-packaged questions about whether I was willing to work flexible hours when needed. The phone interviewer didn't even ask me about myself, just recited what the Red Cross was about and asked if traveling would be a problem, etc. It took only about 5 minutes. It seemed to be more of a screening than an interview. I was then asked to fill out an online application and send it on to the actual hiring manager who will narrow down the field.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    I am a current volunteer and received word about this position from a staff member. I was told that the only reason I got a job interview (like many others) was because I was already involved with the organization. I completed the online application, and then got an unexpected call to do a phone interview late at night about a week after I submitted the application. The interview lasted for about 30 min. One week after the first interview I was asked to come in for a one on one interview.
