    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Bedford, OH).

    Interview

    At first, I received a phone call from a recruiter who asked me if I was still interested in the position. She scheduled me to come in for an interview with the nurse who is in charge of running multiple locations in Ohio. I met with the nurse and she showed me around the clinic, talked to me about my experiences, made jokes, asked why I wanted to work there, and I felt pretty good about the interview.

    Education Administrative Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online on their website. I had a phone interview that was only about 10 minutes. It was odd because the woman who was the HR person didn't seem to want to answer any of my questions. I find this very odd because I was once a board member at Planned Parenthood. She seemed rather cold, and just wanted to get me off the phone.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Friendly office but the head of hr was pretty cold. I thought that the interview went well because it was two hours long but it was just a waste of time. I emailed the head of hr but she never got back to me answering my questions.

    Program Officer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Miami, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on the website. Got an email 2 weeks later asking if I was still interested in the position. I said yes so they called to double check my personal information and to tell me they would send a writing assignment by email on a date and time of my choice, to be completed in 2 hours and emailed back. Completed the assignment and sent it. Got a reply the next day to schedule an in-person interview for later that same week. Parts of in person interview: 1. Fill out an application (basic stuff plus contact info for 3 references) 2. One hour interview with the Director and 3 assistant directors. 3. They bring all of the staff and we all sat around a conference table, they ask anything and everything, including what music you like. 4. Since an important part of the position is to be bilingual, they put me in a small room with a laptop (no internet) and asked me to translate a short document. 5. They gave me a sheet explaining all the benefits, 401K, etc. and thanked me and said they would call within a week. All very friendly and seemed very happy with my interview. However, I had to write to them to get an answer because they disappeared. They finally replied that I was a strong candidate but that I hadn't been selected as one of the finalists.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with two people on the phone. They asked questions about my previous employment and why my longest time being employed with any one employer was 4 years. They seemed very concerned that I would jump ship. I was also asked if my political science B.A. was an indication of law school, I said yes. They made me feel like I was scatter brained because I am now in public health. I graduated from undergrad 6 years ago.... I decided to get an MPH instead

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I was given a panel interview. They did not tell me this so I was a bit surprised when I arrived. But the staff was friendly. It was stressful, but not horrible. They asked me to prepare a presentation for the interview. I did. They also told me that many people had applied and that they would be letting us know soon. They were pretty quick to chose who they were hiring and let us know.
