    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association.

    Interview Details

    The Process starts with a call from HR once you have applied online and are deemed an potential fit. The Phone Screen is about 30 minutes with the local HR rep (this is new). Then the hiring manager will meet with you for 1-2 interviews in person that will include a presentation. This is set up by HR. Once you are selected they will then contact you to begin the background check and other details as well as make you an offer. The process is fairly quick.

    Interview Details

    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...

    Administrative Assistant - New York City Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Bait and Switch. Don't bother wasting your time on an interview. No-one greets you when you arrive, you have to find them. They ask for all your professional and personal information first. Then they give you a very basic Word and Excel test. then they tell you "Sorry you did not pass the Excel." I asked why since all the formulas and questions were correct. But they want it to look like an internal template - only seen by MDA. Very poor tricky sales tactic, as no-one knows this template style except them. They are only looking for donors, so they choose people who have worked for large companies. I asked for all my documents back so they could not solicite my former company for money.

    Interview Details

    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.
