- Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
The process took 5 days. I interviewed at STRIVE (Chicago, IL) in March 2010.
Pretty straightforward. Just want to see who you are and your personality. Seems like a high stress environment with a lot of hours without very good pay.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at STRIVE (New York, NY) in February 2008.
The hiring process consisted of 2 interviews. The first interview was with the Development Director at lasted roughly an hour. The second interview took place approx. 2 weeks after the first interview and was a series of 1-on-1 interviews. The initial interviewer was the ED (30 mins), followed by the President (15-20 mins), and finally with the fiscal department head and HR Specialist.
- The questions were fairly straight forward and revolved around the fundraising teams needs: ie - how would you prioritize a reports that due tomorrow and an LOI due tomorrow as well. Answer Question
the negotiation was straight forward. Some point after my second interview they sent and email offering me the position and within the email was the title and salary of the position being offered. I responded I would love to accept the offer but I would need approx. $5K more than offered, and the organizations response was they couldn't at this time commit to $5K but would entertain a salary increase at my year review.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at STRIVE (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in February 2010.
From the first phone call to the last in person offer presentation, all details were accounted for and the company showed utmost professionalism. There was never a time where I did not know where we were at in the process or when I was going to hear back from the company. The process with STRIVE should be a benchmark for employers across the city. The Interviewer was very knowledgeable, approachable and understood my needs.
