    Operations Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Envision (Virginia) (Washington, DC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied using their online portal- it took me almost two hours because I had to enter all of my professional experience and other details instead of simply uploading my resume that already contained the requested information. There were also multiple technical issues on the internal application website, and therefore in my application, that I was unable to correct before submitting.

    After a second interview I received an offer (contract) via email. The contract was vague and the compensation amount quite low considering the number of hours that they were expecting. After a number of back and forths between the Program Coordinator and a human resources employee they clarified some of my questions but were unwilling to amend the language of the contract nor to negotiate salary amount.

    As an example of the ambiguity in the contract- the first section contained language about pre-service trainings, phone calls, etc. that the employee would be responsible for. It sounded like a few hours of work but luckily I asked them to clarify (twice). Turns out that there was about 40 hours of work expected prior to the first day of training. Given that the offer was for a nine week contract, 40 hours significantly changed its terms.

    It was phrasing like this that made an otherwise okay offer impossible to accept.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Envision (Virginia) (Vienna, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    One phone interview and two in-person interviews, all relatively straightforward. Envision needed to understand my background, and whether I can work in a fast paced environment.

    The phone interview was with HR, they asked basic details about work status, my background, education etc. The two in-person interviews were about 1.5 hours each. They were fairly detailed - my background, prior work experience, "can you give me a specific instance where.." type of questions were asked..

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly about whether I can survive in a fast paced environment with many moving parts. Also asked about my specific style of managing relationships between IT and Marketing teams.   Answer Question

    Faculty Advisor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Envision (Virginia).

    Interview

    Submit application online, complete telephone interview and then wait a few months for a sketchy offer and contract. There is usually one person asking scripted questions, but there can be as many as 3 "managers" on the other end of the phone. The questions have nothing to do with the position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation and what they offer you is basically invalid once you arrive to the site.

    Temporary Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vienna, VA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Envision (Virginia) (Vienna, VA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    When I initially applied I didn't realize it was a summer position - I thought it was just a contract because someone was out on maternity leave or something. So I just never responded to the intial email from them asking for my application and program preferences. They continued to call a couple of times and leave messages but I just never responded because I wasn't interested. Fast forward a month and I answered the phone when they called and they asked me to do a phone interview. Since the position would start in a week or two I figured it couldn't hurt to explore.

    I was sent an email confirmation, but it didn't tell me the names of the people that I was going to be speaking with. It did ask me to look through the program choices and identify my top 5 though.

    The actual phone interview lasted about 45 minutes. There were two people on the phone - one had me on speaker and I think the other was conferenced in. I had a hard time hearing everything that the person on speaker phone said. They started off asking me my program preferences and when I named my top one, they said that one was full and then quickly rattled off the ones that were still available. And then asked me to name my preferences again right then, instead of giving me time to look through and re-evaluate.

    Then they told me they asked me if I could re-locate for the duration of the actual program or stay on-site for 6-10 days for a local program. The staying on-site part wasn't mentioned in the job description or in earlier communication, and I think it should have been. (re-location for the jobs NOT located in DC was obvious in my opinion.

    At the end of the interview I asked what the next steps were. They said that I needed to send in the application, consent to a background check, and as long as my references checked out that was it. As someone who has worked extensively with children (I am a former teacher) it was very surprising to hear that they didn't want to meet with me in person first.

    The next morning I received a job offer via email (contingent on background check and references).

    The overall impression I got from this company is that they are pretty desperate to hire. They continued pursuing me even after I essentially blew them off, and then sent me a job offer without my even sending a thank you note. Both of which of big no-no's in the job search.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't anything unexpected. The questions were all standard and relevant to the position.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary offered was equivalent to $15/hour. With the amount of work required for this position, I feel that is extremely low. I understand this is a non-profit, but that is ridiculous. It is less than I made at my first "real" job 6 years ago, which was at a non-profit and was a lot less responsibility. In addition I don't think they even offer benefits.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Envision (Virginia) (Vienna, VA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    Telephone interview with the HR manager. I was brought in for an in-person interview with the person I would be reporting to, as well as 2 people I would be working with. I had a final interview with their Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer, in addition to two of the previous people I'd interviewed with. It seemed a little like overkill for the position I was applying for, especially when you consider the salary they offered.

    Salary was low for the amount of experience they were looking for.
