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.

    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...

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association (Denver, CO) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I felt very comfortable interviewing with MDA. I was initially contacted by a Divisional Director and completed a phone screen. I was then called in for an in person interview with a few different managers. Following this interview I received a few follow up questions and was offered the position. Start to finish the process went pretty smoothly.

    Interview Questions

    • I had to prepare an elevator pitch to sell MDA - I gave it my best effort and it clearly paid off.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate as they offered me a salary at the higher end of the range that we discussed. It was clear that they valued me as a potential employee.

    Interview

    The interview process was ok I guess. I'm kind of good at interviews though. The ED was dressed extremely unprofessional and very vague regarding the job. I have had better interviewers, but over all it was pretty simple.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    Very long slow process. Though they had originally said they needed to fill the spot right away, they took a long time to get back to me during each step of the process. It was also a three step process involving a preliminary interview with the office director. Then another interview with the office director and regional director, and then another interview with both of them and their senior boss. The first interview involved the director speaking most of the time. The second interview was about 1 1/2 hours. The process seemed dragged out considering they didn't have someone in that position and really needed to fill it. Doesn't seem organized in that way to me. I don't think they really had their act together in terms of being organized for this, which makes me nervous about their organizational skills in their jobs.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process was like training for the Boston Marathon. There are 5 stages to getting hired. First you have to pass a pre-screening phone test, then a 1hr+ phone interview and then once that is done you are brought in for a 2 1/2 hour interview.

    Negotiation

    I wasn't able to negotiate. If you are able to negotiate for the most money because this company will suck the life out of you.
