    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Received an call from HR to schedule a phone interview. Next day conducted phone interview, basic interview questions. Why would you like to work for ARC? Strengths and weaknesses, etc. After I finalized my answers the interview ended. No time to ask questions or anything. It appeared to me that recruiter had already made her mind. She never even asked if I had any comments, questions or anything. Rushed interview from her part. After a week received rejection email.

    Lead Specialist Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    From applying through the Red Cross website to getting the official "Hire" letter, process took approximately 3 weeks.

    Went through what I guess was a "screening" interview on the phone twice. From there had a panel interview with a few of the Red Cross staff. I was slightly surprised by this type of interview but overall found it to be beneficial. It included the people I would be reporting to as well as others from within the department that I would be working it. Finally I had a 1:1 interview with another staff member which gave me an opportunity to ask additional questions that weren't part of the formal panel interview.

    The overall process was pretty relaxed. Everyone I interviewed with throughout the process seemed to be as interested in answering my questions/concerns as they were in interviewing me.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were all very basic. They reviewed my resume and asked about further explanation of my experiences. The organization as a whole is very volunteer-focused/driven so there were quite a few questions about working with volunteers, which was a bit unexpected as I didn't come from a NPO background.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate a bit. When the hiring specialist says that it "really" is their last offer, they really do mean it. I was offered the base salary, asked for $4,000 more. Was given a counter offer of $1,000 more. Turned that offer down and thought that would be it. HR rep called with final offer which was a little less that I wanted but was given additional "work-life balance" perks so I took it.
    That whole phase took roughly a week to get through.

    Regional Communications Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    interviewed at American Red Cross in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer missed our scheduled phone interview time without emailing or calling. During the interview, it was clear that they didn't review my resume in much detail. However, the questions were standard - Why do you want to work with us, what are your strengths/weaknesses, etc. and conversation flowed easily. I was happy that I asked my own prepared questions in order to gather more information about the position, expectations, management structure, etc.
