    Interview Details

    They reached out to me via email for a first, then second interview. I was asked to take a personality test after the first interview. I was also asked to submit an application to the national organization for approval before proceeding to the second interview. It was a pretty standard experience.

    District Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Macon, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Macon, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Boy Scouts of America in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was notified of interviews taking place on the campus of my alma mater. Signed up for one, met with the Assistant Scout Executive. Had a great interview, which lasted close to two hours. Was brought in for a second interview with the Development Director (CFO) and Scout Executive (CEO). Took the personality test online, and was told they would be offering me a position. However, it wouldn't be in the city in which I had applied and was interviewed for. There was no negotiation on this. The interview was great, but actually working at the BSA was horrible.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions, as I had previously experience in a similar field. I do feel like the job description was "undersold" to me though.   Answer Question
