    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Catholic Charities USA (Fort Worth, TX) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email to schedule a short screen (about 10-15 minutes). Then a few days later I was asked to interview with a small group. The meeting with the small group was much more intense than I expected. The interviewers had a list of specific questions. The whole interview was about an hour. Then a few weeks later I asked to present and met with the CEO (about an hour). The CEO was very informal and easy to talk to.

    Interview

    Very relaxed initial interview with director of HR. The HR director is a very respectable and approachable woman who asks easy and fair questions. She is 100% the type to know if you're full of crap or not, so I wouldn't bother trying to BS her. The interview was around 15 minutes but went very fast because she was just a pleasure.
