    I applied online – interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    After applying I was asked to do a phone interview. I was on speaker phone with three people from different levels of the organization and it was extremely hard to hear and more difficult not knowing who was asking the question. Despite this I thought the interview went well. The job was posted for several regions and despite my having more experience in one region, I was never told which I was being considered for, at one point I was even asked if I had a preference and why, but representatives from several regions were in on the interview.
    I was surprised to get a phone call one morning at 7am (I lived in another state and different time zone than DC) telling me they wanted to do a Skype interview that afternoon. That seemed like very short notice to be able to block out an hour that afternoon and the woman on the phone was quite brisk with me. I made arrangements and did the interview via skype. Mostly I thought it went well, but again it was with three different people all from different regions and I was asked questions from all of them relating to all the regions, that seem very strange to me especially during a second interview. It felt like they really did not know and were still trying to figure it out, this made the interview seem unfocused.
    After the Skype interview, the communication stopped completely. I had the number of the hiring manager who had communicated with me for the interviews, I called once, just to check on the status of the job and I was not put through. I never received any notification, not even an email to inform me the job had been filled. I know more companies are doing this, but it seems unprofessional especially after two interviews.

    I applied online – interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for the position. A few weeks later I was called in for an Interview that consisted of typing test, and a mixture of traditional and behavioral based questions. The interview was witha panel of two managers, both were very nice, knowledgeable, and accomodating. About a week later, I was called in for a second interview with the director. The second interview was more of an informal discussion rather than an interview. I was contacted about three days later with a job offer.

    I applied online – interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got a call to set up a phone interview.
    I thought I did horribly on the phone interview so I did not expect a call for an in-person interview, but I did!
    The second interview went really well, but I guess I was wrong because I never heard from them again.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember, since this interview was several months ago, but a lot of the questions during the phone interview were pretty hard to answer.   Answer Question
