Donor Contact Representative III Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at National Marrow Donor Program.
Interview Details – I went through two interviews. One was a phone screen with the recruiter. The next was with the hiring manager at the center. The hiring manager let me know they would get back to me in a week, but the next day the recruiter called me to give me an offer. No real room for negotiations. Interview questions were pretty basic.

Administrative Specialist Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at National Marrow Donor Program in April 2012.
Interview Details – The NMDP uses "behavior-based" interview questions. It's normal to interview with more than one person in the room - for example, an HR rep, the hiring manager, and a team lead or co-worker. The people interviewing will have been given a multi-page sheet of sample questions, which they read off in turn. Questions will typically be multi-part questions. An example: Tell us about a time when you did (blank). (Maybe, managed a project from start to finish; or maybe, had a disagreement with a colleague.) The main question will be followed by more specifics: What was the situation? Who did you talk to? What was the end result? These types of interview questions rely on the principle that past behavior on the job is is the best predictor of future behavior. Try to be specific in your answers. Even if it's something that happens all the time, you'll be asked to pick one illustrative example to talk about. Don't get hung up on answering all the multiple parts, in order. The questions are not meant to be a memory test - they are meant to get you talking about yourself and your approach to your work. Be honest in your answers. If you, for example, tend to avoid conflict or smooth over awkward situations, that's real for you. If, however, you normally face a conflict head-on, then let them know that. Maybe they're looking for a "smoother," or maybe they're looking for "honesty," but either way, if you're not yourself, then both you and the NMDP will be unhappy with the hire decision.
Interview Question – Have you had to convince your team to work on a project they weren't thrilled about? How did you do it? Answer Question
