    Individual Giving Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Girl Scouts USA (Washington, DC) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The Girl Scouts were very nice to interview with. Their recruiter is very sweet. She was very up front with me about the salary which was undesirable given that they are in the DC area and that wouldn't allow me to afford anything. The process started with a pre-screening phone interview then it moved to an in-person interview with the recruiter and the Director of Development, then I went on to the meeting with the CEO and she was wonderful. Ultimately, they decided to go with an internal person, which is fine given the salary didn't meet my requirement. The only reason I went through the trouble was because I was a Girl Scout and had a personal connection to the organization.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    • was required to repeat verbatim information rather than 'conceptual'   Answer Question

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Girl Scouts USA.

    Interview

    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.
