    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen with the Hiring Manager. I was then brought into the office for group interview with 4 employees. Following this, I was given a special project to work on and present to management in a 2nd-round interview. The whole process took about 3 weeks and was relatively painless. Don't forget, this is Greenpeace. Don't show up in a suit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was relatively straightforward--they sent an email and asked for an interview. However, they were incredibly unorganized. They would set up interview times--then email again minutes later and say "just kidding." Further, they would call during the time that they had already cancelled--this happened three times during the course of my interview process. Not every department is as disorganized, it is mainly HR.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Brief discussion with the hiring manager. The entire interview lasted maybe 30 minutes. Standard questions about work experience and interest in the company. The manager I met with was very friendly, long hair, and hippy-like. He took a look at my resume and asked me what I liked to do in my spare time. It was very relaxed. Not much pressure.

    Had 3 phone interviews followed by two in-office and then an interview with the executive director.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The HR didn't inform me of certain benefits I could have obtained due to my status as a foreigner. I had to see a lawyer (recommended by other staff with the same experience) in order to finally get these benefits (which came from the government and didn't cost Greenpeace anything).

    Interview

    Group interview; basic information about the position on interview day, then a follow-up sheet with questions like... "Why do you want to work for Greenpeace" and "Write a 30 second pitch about anything you're passionate about." Then had a 1:1 interview with the city coordinator one by one.

    Interview Questions

    • Write a 30 second pitch about anything you're passionate about, trying to sell or promote to the idea to me. (1:1 with the manager, so a little intimidating.)   Answer Question

    No negotiation on salary. The salary is base across Greenpeace.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Houston, TX) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was a very laid back interview. They told me to dress casual. They asked what environmental issue I care about the most and why. They asked what I disliked about my last job and why, and they also had me canvass them on an issue. It look about 15 minutes for the whole interview, including filling out the paperwork.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Greenpeace (San Jose, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is not that complicated. Called an advertisement on Craigslist and got a callback the next day for a phone interview. Then an on site interview took place with a few other candidates and then one at a time we went into a separate room for a 1:1 with the hiring manager. Overall a really simple process and a good experience.
