I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association in February 2013.
Interview Details – Came in for an in-person interview, in a group setting with about ten other candidates and they said they were looking to hire 2-4 VRCs. The Fundraising Coordinator led the interview, asking questions about how we handle rejection, stay motivated, and more. She also had us read a phone script while she was facing away to simulate hearing us on the phone, which was a little intimidating and I was glad I didn't have to go first!
Interview Question – How do you stay motivated after repeated rejection? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Contract job; each agency has a set bill rate - you may be able to negotiate with the agency you work, but MDA won't talk dollars.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association in January 2011.
Interview Details –
First half hour interview with MDA Employee.
Next Hour Group Interview with both Fundraising coordinators with about 6 other people. Asked questions like "What would you say to a person you were asking to commit to the Lock Up?" "What kind of people are good jail birds". Not a good discription of what the job entails. Led to believe we are given tons of names to cold call but in reality you have to make do with about 10 new numbers a day.
Interview Question – "write down a script for asking for a jailbird to commit to the lock up." Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No Negotiation. Pay was discussed before the interviews.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Muscular Dystrophy Association in May 2011.
Interview Details – The interview basically consisted of reading and being told to follow a script word for word. We were also required to read the script to the group that was in the interview. Went around the room, stood and stated our name and why we wanted to work at the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The next day we watched a very outdated film that was supposed to relate to the job we were being considered for. Then we were given a list and a telephone and basically told to start phoning. Oh, and we did listen to other on the phone for approximately 45 minutes before we actually started.
