    Director of Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Girl Scouts USA in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Extensive interview. Well organized and professional and met with every logical contact person internally. Received in-depth information about the company and culture as a result. The 'trick' question, however was a bit petty and unnecessary, in my opinion. It doesn't necessarily weed out bad employees, just promotes mistrust of leadership.

    I applied online. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Girl Scouts USA in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was slow. I applied in March and then again in June for the same position and did not get called for an interview until August. First met with the head of HR and then the CEO. About a week later I was called back on the status of my application and offered the job.

    There was no negotiation. I would suggest to prepare yourself that this is an non-profit, so there is a lot of work for no negotiating your salary.

    Vonlunteer Support Coordinator/Membership Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Girl Scouts USA.

    Interview Details

    Applied mid-May, they contacted me after three weeks to schedule an interview and were willing to work around my work schedule. It then took a little over a week to hear anything, and seemed like internal communication might not be the best - had sent references and was asked for them again by another staff member. Kind of an odd interview... interviewer seemed a bit unsure of what information she was trying to gather even though she was using a template that seemed to have standardized questions. She was also super pregnant and it was the end of the day, so that could have had something to do with it.
