Campaign Director Interview

Campaign Director

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Interview Details – Within one week of submitting the online application, I received an initial email from Human Resources to set up a phone interview -- expectation for 45 mins. After this conversation, the Recruiter advised they would be speaking with the local chapter and would follow-up within one to two weeks, whether or not the decision was to move forward. About 2 weeks later, I was invited for an in-person with the local Operations Director. We met for about an hour and spoke more specifically about the role, requirements and culture within the chapter. They advised they would be in touch and about 1 week later, I was invited to meet back with that same Ops Dir, the Executive Director, Patient Services Manager and a Board member. About 1 week later, I received the verbal offer and was asked to verify 3 professional references as well as submit to a background check.

Interview Question – Nothing too unexpected and mostly standard behavioral questions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The phone screen and email prior to setting up addressed salary expectations upfront and established mutual interest. I knew the salary being offered and did not have to negotiate.

Campaign Manager Interview

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Interview Details – 5 interviews over a period of 3 months. Began with a phone interview where basic experience type questions were asked. Second interview was a series of interviews with all of the local staff. Everyone from the office manager to the Director got a turn to interview. Third interview was back to phone. Fourth interview took place about an hour and a half from my home. I needed to travel from my home to another city to meet the "team" there. Then i was interviewed by the ED, a national director, my director, and every member of the team, one at a time. After hours of interviewing, I was given a vague outline, 5 minutes to prep, and told to give a "sales pitch" to the entire team. Finally one more phone interview and a hiire

Manager Interview

Manager

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Interview Details – 2 telephone interviews and 1 in person interview with a team. Realized none of the interviewers knew what they were talking about pertaining to the position. They all looked and talked like they came from the same neighborhood. Workplace culture seemed insular, closed.

Interview Question – None. These guys had no idea what they were doing. It felt like they just wanted to get over with it.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I negotiated $15,000 up from the offer. After six months of performance that exceeded expectations in a big way, I requested and obtained raise.

Intern Interview

Intern
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in May 2013.

Interview Details – It's a 2 step process: a phone interview and then an in person interview. I felt like getting the in person interview means you have a pretty good chance at getting the position.

The phone interview asked the standard interview questions: team building, interests, goals, etc. It wasn't extremely casual, nor was it super professional. The in person interview asks a few more questions. It's definitely a lot more casual and laid back. Overall, a positive interview process.

Interview Question – Mostly behavioral questions, nothing really unexpected   Answer Question

Campaign Coordinator Interview

Campaign Coordinator
New York, NY

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
