- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2014.
Lengthy, lengthy interview process consisting of two phone interviews and three in-person interviews. The entire process lasted four months, not including the month between the final interview and the very impersonal rejection e-mail. The first interview was with a HR manager, the second phone interview and the first in-person interview with the hiring manager, and the second and third in-person interviews with a panel. The interviewers were very thorough in investigating my background, yet nowhere in the interview process did they ever disclose the salary or benefits, nor would they discuss the details about the job itself, even after I asked point-blank.
- I was asked in detail about my interpersonal relationship with every manager I'd ever had. 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2014.
Be prepared for A LOT of people in your interviews (and there will be a few). They included consumers in one of the interviews, which I think is pretty cool.
- Questions revolved around specific clinical situations....what would you do in <this> particular situation? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2014.
I interviewed with a panel of 4. The head of the department began the interview by giving me an overview of the job and the company. Then they all took terms asking questions, most applied to my past work and how would I handle myself under pressure and time restrictions. None of the questions were difficult to answer. All in all they ask you very entry level graphic design questions. They only have one graphic designer within the company, so she was the only one who asked design based questions.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development (Philadelphia, PA).
I applied for a position online and was contacted almost immediately to schedule an interview. I ended up going for 2 interviews, and I met with a panel of 3-4 people each time. Other than the usual interview jitters, I felt pretty comfortable. They assured me that they wanted to fill the position as soon as possible; however, after my 2nd interview I never heard from them again. No phone call, no email, no response to my thank you note or my follow up email a few weeks later. It seemed a little disorganized when I went in, but after this experience it just leaves the impression of a work environment lacking professionalism and even just common courtesy. Very disappointing, since I was initially very excited about the position.
- Questions were really all over the place, and ranged from questions about my clinical/theoretical orientation, to how I would handle certain scenarios, to questions about my employment choices and work trajectory. Everyone was very polite, but gave me no indication as to whether they agreed with my approach/responses or not. 1 Answer

I applied online. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development (Philadelphia, PA).
Fairly smooth application process, but the job description and how the position fit into the organization was unclear.The person who would be overseeing the position, and the executive director, did not seem to understand the mechanisms and processes of fundraising, and they seemed to lack the energy they touted the organization as having. Overall, the organization's administrative offices seemed like a good place to work, with attractive offices, lots of people and activity, and friendly faces.
- The interview panel was more concerned about my fitting into their "vallues" than they were my expertise or experience. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development (Philadelphia, PA).
Initial interview was conducted by teaching artist staff and not by the director. A participant in the program was brought in the interview room to ask questions (I assume this was a way for the staff to see how well you engage this specific population). Final questions and new hire forms were given out by senior director at the end of application process.
- None. Please refer to health care component of program. Answer Question
Non-negotiable. Finances are in flux until the end of the fiscal year. New budget and "potential" for salary increase is in question.

I applied through other source. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development.
I submitted my resume to a friend of a friend at RHD headquarters. The Unit Director called me (loved my resume & experience) and set up the interview. I had one interview and received an offer one month later.
- The interview was awkward because the Director was out - the person asked me some 'illegal' questions. I handled it gracefully, and changed the subject. Answer Question
There was no negotiation because I was filling in for somebody and that seemed to be set in stone because of the other person's salary.

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Resources For Human Development in April 2013.
I was referred by a former co-worker and current employee of RHD, Inc. I completed the Application electronically and was offered an interview. The initial interview included the immediate hiring Manager and his Supervisor. I invited for a second interview which included the immediate hiring Manager and two (2) current employees from the Unit.
- Can you work in an open environment (no cubicles, just an open warehouse with desks everywhere) and not be distracted? 1 Answer
