    Campaign Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Interview process included a phone screening and two in person interviews. During the phone interview, they described the position in full as well as salary and benefits. Most organizations don't seem to be as upfront with this information, but it was nice to know all the details before the process began. The whole process took about two weeks. Would have liked to receive a phone call or email after the final round of interviews. In my mind it was poor taste that it took 3-4 weeks after the final interview that I had not been selected. Overall, great experience and fantastic organization.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Interview

    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Hauppauge, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Approximately 1-2 weeks after submitting an online application and resume, I received an email asking if I was still interested in the position and would I be interested in proceeding further on to the next step in the process and would I like to set up a day and time for a telephone interview. This was scheduled for approximately three weeks after I had completed the original online job application. It took approximately 30 minutes and was lead by a member of the human resources team.
    I received another email asking again if I were still available and interested in continuing on to the next step in the interview process and was I free to set up a personal one on one interview at their local chapter office.
    This interview took place at their office with the person on the development team who would be my direct supervisor. At the conclusion of the interview, it was explained that the next step in the process would be to set up an interview with the chapter director.
    The process ended when I received a gracious thank you email approximately six weeks after the time the online application was first submitted explaining the position had been filled.
