    Regional Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brussels (Belgium)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at International Crisis Group (Brussels (Belgium)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Job interviews tend to be perfunctory and are often done just to pretend there is an open process when in fact most hires are friends of the senior management staff -- hence the fact that the organisation is very top heavy with former UN people. Usually interviewed by the underwhelming HR director followed by a panel interview. Only rarely does the CEO involve herself in hiring.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. Mostly have to come up with ideas for subjects for Crisis Group to research and explain how you would go about it. Very little interest in management style, experience or ability.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Poor salary and benefits and the organisation is in decline.
