    FOC Program Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Local Initiative Support Corporation in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially I applied for a Director position but I received a phone call that they would like to consider me for another position. I was thrilled, a phone interview time/date was arranged with the consultant that LISC hired to select the candidate. The phone interview went well and I was notified via email that I had made it to the next step. This is when things started to go downhill.

    The consultant and I could never agree on a time to meet. My schedule was flexible but with respect to my current employer I could not drop what I was doing to come and meet at moments notice. Finally the consultant scheduled a interview date/time at a coffee shop (which I thought was odd) the interview lasted about 90 min(s) with some pretty tough questions.

    To this day I was never notified I did not get the job. I found out through an industry colleague they selected another candidate. Thanks for letting me know LISC!

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Local Initiative Support Corporation in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I discussed with my mentor my career aspirations for the future and some of the things I said reminded him of his neighbor and colleague. He described LISC to me and I was very interested, so he agreed to contact my soon-to-be boss to see if they needed a new hire. Then, I was contacted two weeks later and had a brief phone interview with my soon-to-be boss. She was very cordial and welcoming and we were able to schedule an interview date without hassle. I went to the interview and had a casual conversation with a program officer, who would later be my direct supervisor, while my soon-to-be boss was in a conference call. He is one of the warmest people I have ever met and I found it easy to share my experiences with him. That one on one lasted about 20 minutes. Lastly, I had a double interview with both of them where they described what they needed and where they wanted the company to go in the next few years and what they expected of a candidate. I told them of my skills and how I could complement their needs. They were very receptive of what I had to say. I was informed that I got the internship the same week and it has been a blast ever since!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Local Initiative Support Corporation in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    HR assists with the hiring process, but generally resumes go to the head of the department who's doing the hire (ie, VP, Program Director, Executive Director) so the interview process is decentralized and individualized.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview is conducted by the department head, so questions vary based on who's conducting the interview. There's no centralized or standardized interview process.   Answer Question
