    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed first by phone then brought in for an in person interview with the manager. My next interview was five hours long. There was no need for the interview to be this lengthy. I met with six different groups of two to three people. Each interview lasted about 20 to 30 minutes. I was also asked to produce a writing sample which I was given during the time I was supposed to have lunch. During lunch, when I was writing the sample the Human Resources department went out to lunch to celebrate on of the teams upcoming wedding. It wasn't a good day for them to conduct interviews because they were not focused at all.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    Interview Details

    I saw the Summer Intern posting online and applied via e-mail. About a month later, I was contacted by MAW staff and asked to come in for an interview with the Communications team. Maybe two weeks after the interview took place, I was contacted by a different set of MAW staff members asking me to come in and interview for the Intern position with the Wish Team. I was unable to come in person for this one (because I had returned to school post-break) so we carried out the interview via Skype.

    I received a final verdict from the Wish Team shortly after - I had received the position! I never ended up hearing back from the Communications team, which I thought was odd at the time, but hey, everything works out for a reason I guess!

    Accountant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    Interview Details

    I happened to meet the CFO by chance at an unrelated event. I had an interview with him that went exceptionally well. I was called back for a second interview to meet with the accounting coordinator, head of wish granting, and COO. The COO was uninviting, insulting, and incredibly rude. She turned my interview into a 20 minute lecture about Make-A-Wish's mission is the most important thing because I mentioned something about how the job could further my own career. It sounded like I was interviewing for a cult.

    Interview Questions
