I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Red Cross in September 2011.
Interview Details – I found a very brief summary of the position online. Per the description's instructions, I sent a letter of interest (through email) to HR and attached my resume. I never received a description but, about two weeks later, I received an email that let me know (on a Thursday) that I had an interview at 2:00 on Monday. I thought this was somewhat odd. I still wasn't sure exactly what the position required and I thought it was strange that they scheduled the interview without even speaking with me. (What if I had a job that wouldn't allow me to leave at 2:00 on a Monday?) Anyways, the two staff members who interviewed me were very nice but only one seemed interested in what I had to say. I think the other lost interest in me pretty early on which was disappointing because, at least on paper, I thought I was a great fit for the position once I learned exactly what the position involved. (I know... biased opinion.) They told me they would make a decision right away and I never heard back from them. Obviously they decided to go with someone else! Maybe next time! :-) Overall, not the worst interview experience I've had.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Red Cross in March 2012.
Interview Details – Got an email inviting me for an interview and phone call as well. Was interviewed by one person but was told that there will be another interview with more people which I didn't make it to.
Interview Question – Standard questions, the interviewer seemed to be bored and it didn't look like she likes her job that much Answer Question
