Application

I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association (Orlando, FL) in June 2015.

Interview

I did an phone screen with HR. It was very quick 30 minutes. The HR rep had no information and could not answer any of my questions. Everything I asked she said I don't know. Was called back for an in person interview with the office I would be working but had decided to accept another position.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association (Greensboro, NC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively quick as my particular office had been looking to fill my role for awhile. I had two phone interviews followed by an in person interview with the executive director that the divisional director Skyped into. The process was thorough and informative in a way that got to me while allowing me to learn a lot about the role. The in person interview was two hours, but it went by really quickly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Really bare bones. Sounds like there has been a huge turnover in the office so they were trying to move me through quickly. It was not particularly challenging, but I did see a lot of red flags come up about the way they operate. I would not take a job working there. Also glad I checked Glassdoor afterwards.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association in February 2015.

    Interview

    HR screening with very basic question. The in person interview was a list of 30ish questions. They just read off a list. Not very personal. They don't really explain exactly how much you would actually work. Temp flex isn't really opinion.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was lengthy. Definitely a behavioral interview, lots of situational questions. They allowed me to ask a lot of questions but at the end of the day I felt like they were not up front with me from the beginning about pay and time requirements. I referenced the many reviews I read on glassdoor about the organization and position which I quickly learned turned the tone of the interview...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I initially applied online. I was then invited to do a video interview shortly after. About 3 weeks later they asked to set up a phone interview. About 3 weeks after that they asked me to come in for an interview with the Executive Director. That day they asked me to set up a presentation for the next. About 3 weeks after they called late in the evening to offer me the position. They offered the top price range and gave me a little over 2 weeks before the start date with minimal flexibility.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, they offered the highest in the range for the position.
