    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at JDRF (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Overall the process was great until after the interview. I had an initial HR screening, a phone screening with the hiring manager and then an in-person review. The interview went well and I felt as though I was a great candidate. The HR representative also mentioned that to me as well. I checked in a couple of times for the status but got a response saying that they were still undecided. After a couple weeks I noticed the job posting was gone from the website. They never even said to me anything whether the job was filled or closed. Very frustrating after traveling four plus hours to interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at JDRF (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The process consisted of 1 phone interview with the recruiter, followed by 4 interviews (2 phone, 2 in person) with the research staff. The decision to hire came less than 2 weeks after the last interview and the offer came about 1 week later. The interviews were very conversational and laid back.

    Negotiation

    One full day of negotiations. The recruiter was rather aggressive during this process and offered little or no wiggle room for salary.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at JDRF (New York, NY).

    Interview

    When through a 3rd party recruiter. Had an in-person interview.
    1) Meet with HR, and all she convey to me was that she was very busy and pointed to all the resumes scatter on her desk.
    2) Meet with hiring manager and director (via phone-conference).
      - Ask me a several questions of issues that they were facing with salesforce, and ask me to give them detail solutions that doesn't cost them "resources".
      - She got belligerent, and yelled at me after she didn't like my solution. Essentially, want me to work for free on the spot.
      - When I ask more detail about this position, somehow they got caught off guard and seem absolutly clueless of what they are looking for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at JDRF (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was the longest and most arduous I ever experienced. The office interview probably took about 5 hours. I also had to complete a few online tests prior to the office interview which took a few hours. The in-person interview had an IQ test after a long day of many in-person interviews. Considering this was most likely a $50k-$60k job with little possibility of advancement, the process seems excessive.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at JDRF (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online directly to the JDRF and got a phone call almost immediately. Spent about 40 minutes talking to the recruiter. She set me up with a call with one of the hiring managers. The hiring manager was almost 15 minutes late calling with little apology. That call lasted around an hour. I then received an email from some random company with a link to a personality test – this test was not mentioned in either interview – pretty bad form in my opinion. I spent about 40 minutes completing the test. Followed up with the recruiter and got no response. It’s pretty obvious at this point that I didn’t get the job but they could at the very least have the professional courtesy to let me know. A two line email doesn’t take much effort. So overall I don’t have a good impression and will likely not apply to them again.

    Interview

    Process was good but depends solely on Executive Director of hat chapter. it deosnt seem to have a nationwide process attached to hiring. Along iwth the rest of the foundations problems there is no consistency to this process, or any other except walks. The last interview wasn't an interview at all since the people I met with didn't realize an offer was already extended to me. Awkward.
