    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at American Red Cross (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    I first received an email notifying me that I was being considered about a week later I did a phone interview which was easy the HR lady just basically wanted to establish that I had a degree. I was then scheduled for an in person interview they were very friendly and the conversation flowed well. After the interview they gave me a tour of the work area and I met the other team members. They did let me know that they were considering many candidates for this 1 position and I would know by next week. The next day I received an email informing me that I did not get the job.

    Disaster Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Red Cross (Detroit, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Began with the person whom I thought would be the sole interviewer telling me she had about 30 minutes to ask an hour's worth of questions. It evolved to be a seven-person panel lasting over an hour. They asked the gamut of questions, and was generally stress free. They did ask a question regarding my background as a social worker, and how that may impact my work as a disaster services specialist. The seven-person panel ranged from current volunteers to Senior Disaster Program Managers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at American Red Cross (Grand Rapids, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview. Person conducting interview was HR calling from central location. Interviewer was very polite and professional. Lasted about 15 minutes. General questions about background and experience. Discussion on salary relatively early revealed this wouldn't be the right fit for me. Interviewer was very helpful discussing other ARC positions that would be better suited and encouraged me to keep an eye on their positions.
