    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online for this position, and had practically forgotten about it nearly a month later when I got a screening call from someone in HR. She had the basic questions for me (i.e. "Why are you interested in this position," etc.) and said that she would be passing along my answers to the hiring manager. A couple weeks later I got a call from the hiring manager who wanted to set up an in-person interview for the following day. We ended up talking for about 90 minutes and it was stated that the hiring process would be very quick, but almost three weeks later I still haven't heard anything. I HOPE it's a place that would notify you either way.

    Interview

    I was called by the volunteer coordinator and asked why I wanted to work with them and set up an interview time at my local planned parenthood. I went and was asked questions about myself as well as my stance on abortions. Afterwards, I filled out paperwork for a background check and had to give them two references. They emailed me back a week later to let me know if I got it or not.

    I applied online, then was called for a phone interview. About a week later, I was asked to come in for an on-site interview with 3 people.
