    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at American Red Cross in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called about 2 weeks after online application. I had a very easy phone interview and about 4 days later I received an email for face to face interview. That interview was a little harder as they wanted exact situation answers. Interview went well. I did a call back and was told they were very impressed and I should receive a call from the recruiter by week end. No phone call, no offer.

    Collections Technician II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mobile, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mobile, AL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    Usually have at least two interviews, sometimes three. Normally they are interviews with at least two people each time. Generally in Alabama they like you to have a phlebotomy certificate at least, but not necessarily experience because they have to teach you the Red Cross way to do everything and it's easier if they don't have to break you of lots of bad habits.

    Interview Questions
    • They will tell you that this is a difficult job because of travel, hours, and stress. BELIEVE THEM!!!!!! They are NOT exaggerating!!! They will ask if you have children if you have a good support network that can take care of your children at all hours of the day and night.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I accepted their first offer and I should have negotiated for something higher. They will try to low ball you so start high and be willing to come down. The benefits used to make up for lower pay, but they have cut down to bad insurance so you'll need good pay to make up for what your insurance doesn't pay.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at American Red Cross in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my application for this position in NYC office, I got a phone call to schedule an interview. I was a little surprised when I met 6 people waiting in a meeting room to interview me. In general, they were very nice. I have a feeling that interviewers of NGOs are more friendly than those in other sectors.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Peoria, IL
    Application Details

    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
