Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Red Cross in April 2011.

Interview Details – First step was a phone interview which was about 30 minutes. I was then asked to come back in and spend a few hours meeting various members of the staff. No-one asked me overly difficult questions and everyone seemed fairly nice - although the team seemed a little disjointed. It wasn't overly clear where this particular role fit into the larger picture and the team seemed to be rather top heavy. There was one person I interviewed with who was very energetic and positive - the others didn't leave much of an impression on me.

Intern Interview

Intern
Washington, DC

The process took 5 days - interviewed at American Red Cross in April 2011.

Interview Details – I was very happy with the interview process for the American Red Cross. I was interviewed over the phone as well as in person for a position. The interviewers were fair, open and friendly. Though the questions seemed simple, I realized that they were fishing for very specific experience and knowledge. I recommend complete honesty and straightforwardness (while maintaining professionalism, obviously) because I truly believe that they will offer you the position if you are a good fit and if not, they know that you would not be content in the position.

Interview Question – How does HIV/AIDS fit into water and sanitation issues?   Answer Question

Financial Analyst Interview

Financial Analyst
Washington, DC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at American Red Cross in March 2011.

Interview Details – I interviewed with the senior analyst and the current financial analyst whose role I would be taking over (She was leaving for personal reasons).
Very corporate vibe considering it is a non profit organization. Asked mostly behavioral questions such as
1. What stresses you out the most?
2. Explain a time when you have had to resolve a conflict with an employee
3. Talk about a time when you have had to deal with a difficult client who has been non responsive etc

I hear they take a long time setting up the interviews as well as getting back to you after. I think the overall interview experience was great! My application was eventually rejected due to their competitive candidate pool. I am going to keep in contact with the employees, and keep applying for other positions within Red Cross.
