    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs (Long Beach, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Wasn't really an interview for me since I volunteered there for a couple of years. But it was pretty basic question asking. Then there was what ifs questions. But, since I volunteered there before I had a foot in the door already so I say volunteer for a couple of months to get experience before hand.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs (Atlanta, GA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was asked the general questions that you are asked within a interview. My opinion is that they already knew that they were not going to hire me because they did not even allow me to know about the job opening that had become available. I had to go online and find out about it, after asking the head staff.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs (Santa Monica, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Usual questions. Apparently there has been a great deal of turn over in this particular department. The approach to acquiring new donors is through direct mail (very expensive). Staff is not allowed to talk with and/or meet with Board.

    Negotiation

    With the reputation of such a fine organization, I was surprised they gave me the offer letter on the first day of work. My mistake, always ask for the offer letter before you start the job.
