    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online 8/15/14 (Friday night) - got an email Monday morning (8/18/14) asking me for a phone interview.

    Phone interview 8/21/14 - very casual and conversational. They want to feel you out and make sure you support women's reproductive rights abnd are pro-choice. Interview lasted about 10 mins, and at the end of the phonecall I was asked to come for an in-person interview the following week (8/26/14).

    First In-Person Interview
    Relaxed and Casual. The first part of the interview was spent going over and being tested on the computer system (about 45 mins), then the clinic director came in and spent about 10 mins asking about my experience and goals. Was called the next day and asked to come for second interview 2 days later.

    Second In-Person Interview
    Interview 8/29/14. This was a meeting with the rest of the staff, very informal and chatted about my experience. This was a Friday - it was a holiday the following Monday, so they called me on the Tuesday (9/2/14) and offered me the job.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask how you feel about abortion - there is no point applying to this organisation if you're pro-life. They will want to know about your experiences, and your plans for the future.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Was originally told that salary was $11.50 per hour - when they offrered the job they told me that they would start me on $11.75, going up to $12.25 after training.

    EPM Project Manager and Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview Details

    My initial interview was over the phone, very scripted screening questions to make sure I knew what Planned Parenthood is all about. I met the hiring manager in person for an hour conversation first, then spent another 20 minutes or so speaking with the VP of the hiring department. Passing that, I had to complete background clearance checks and a personality/ work ethic survey. Once the results were back from that I returned to meet the rest of the team. It was very informal - the team can ask any questions they'd like of the candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • The only unexpected element was the extreme informality of the large group interview - questions were very casual and only some of them only somewhat business related.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    This was during the early recession, and before I knew what a 'negotiation phase' was.

    Health Care Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I heard back from a recruiter within a week of applying for the position. I received an email to schedule a day/time for a phone screening. I was just asked simple questions about work history, salary requirement and if I could perform the duties of the position, etc. That same day I was contacted and scheduled for an interview for the following week. I was specifically told that I did not need to get dressed up for the interview, that my favorite scrubs would be fine (however, I wore black slacks and an all black shirt). Interviewer was very nice and relaxed which made me a lot less nervous for the meeting. Typical interview questions were asked, but in a conversational manner that made things flow more smooth as opposed to just being grilled and having questions thrown at you. At the end of the interview, I was scheduled to come back to shadow a particular position to see how comfortable I was before being offered the position. Within a week, I was offered the position!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview Details

    Liked interviewing when I did. Heard It is much different now. After a phone screen, I interviewed with my boss, it went well. My new co-workers go thru multiple interviews. New people are told you can not negotiate salary but you can. I think a lot has changed in the last 5 years.

    Interview Questions
    • My interview was easy but some new co-workers report they are asked about hypothetical occurrences and pushed for answer "Well, WHAT WOUD YOU DO?" "ARE YOU SURE YOU NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS?"   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    I negotiated and was happy New staff are told up front "You can't negotiate" but my biss says you can. they are told to say that.
