    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Save the Children International.

    Interview Details

    This was done over the phone as the panel was spread out over multiple locations. There were no surprises here, it seemed very informal / conversational. It was not a highly formal, structured process as it is at other NGOs.

    Negotiation Details
    You will have to stay within the states salary range unless there is a VERY good reason. Even then, I wouldn't have high expectations. All positions should have a salary range. You will only get on the high end if you have significant experience or have worked for the organisaiton before.

    Senior Finance Officer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Save the Children International in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied directly. Interview went well, pleasant interviewer. Unfortunately, HR did not respond my emails requesting feedback. When a month later, I managed to speak with a HR Manager he still had no feedback, just 'you did not make it to the second stage'. What is even worse is that they said I would be best suited for a junior role, which is rather insulting. I doubt I will ever apply again to work for Save the Children.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Save the Children International.

    Interview Details

    Moved very quickly. Submitted application online, received email request for interview. Panel interview, followed by short-listing interview. Following the short-listing, HR promptly followed up with an offer packet. I think since it is a large international organization, HR is relatively straight forward. They know what they can offer salary wise based on their salary scale (which is in the handbook) and what benefits they offer to international staff.

    Interview Questions
    • Relatively standard questions pertaining to the technical area of the position   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was rather straight forward - SCI has salary scales and are fairly forthright about what they can offer.
