I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Interview Details – First round is phone interview, then you get called in for an interview with a panel of staff (3-4 people will be in the room). Questions asked are standard for all interviews and staff will read them word for word. They're looking for specific examples, and for questions to be set up in full, comprehensive ways. Depending on the position, the next round is a presentation for this same staff (typically on another day), and then after that, you may meet with the head of the department.
Interview Question – Know how to relate your experience to fundraising, even if you've never done it before. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Interview Details – Three rounds. First is the phone interview (very simple). Their entire interview process is scripted. Their staff is NOT allowed to ask anything more than what is written (hence the lack of creativity and robotic employees they are looking for). Second round is a book full of questions, suggestion: respond to each question with an example. VERY generic questions. Third round is a presentation. They give you a packet to read from and ask you to "sell a campaign" to a fake audience. They give you markers and a flip chart to use. They also ask you to input numbers on an excel document to see how you work with excel (know how to make a graph/chart on excel!)
Negotiation Details – I had a masters, asked for more money and they clearly said NO.
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in March 2012.
Interview Details – 1) Phone interview, 2) 1:1 interview 3) Group interview and a presentation on a case that they provide you when you come in for the interview. You have 20 min to prepare a 10 min presentation on the case.
Staff was very friendly, especially the lower management staff. They encouraged lots of questions and were very interested in getting to know you. Presentation was very appropriate in terms of assessing skill set but it was a little awkward. The staff asked virtually no questions and just stared; but was told I did an exceptional job. Other presentation style interviews were far more participatory and engaging.
The only other negative was that they were very vague on the hiring requirements and timeline (especially for a final candidate) which made it difficult to navigate other offers. They didn't really keep you in the loop and often went days to weeks between interviews before hearing anything. Sent the decision in the mail with no real explanation.
Overall, the interview process is intensive, but not overly difficult.

Interview Details – Any information I might give is no longer relevant, as the people with whom I interviewed have left or been fired. I first had a phone interview and then an in-person interview, both of which lasted about an hour.
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in January 2011.
Interview Details – Very kind and enthusiastic interviewers. Small work culture: it's just one branch of many. The interview on the phone seemed very easy and conversational. The group interview was with two of the higher up people in the branch. I felt comfortable.
