Interview Details –
I interviewed with the BSA at my local council to become a District Executive. While I am a recent college graduate, I have interviewed several times (for part-time student jobs, summer internships, and even other entry-level positions). This really wasn't the best interview I have had. We basically went through a packet of questions. I would answer a question and both interviewers would spend about 20 seconds in silence writing down my answer. They were incredibly friendly, but there wasn't really much dialogue- just Q&A.
Pros- incredibly efficient and prompt about scheduling the interview. Follow-up was very quick (1 week passed between scheduling the interview, the interview itself, and the offer).
Cons- very static interview process, awkward at times.
Interview Question – Be prepared to discuss how exactly you are qualified to help make scouting happen. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Was a conditional job offer, if I were to not pursue part-time graduate studies, I would advance in the process.

I was then invited back to a staff meeting and after the meeting was offered the job.
