    Senior Management Position Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at United Nations Foundation.

    Interview Details

    Process was very straightforward and authentic. Had first round interview on the phone, then met with two directors, then the team and finally two very senior level staff. In total, I went in four separate times and had one phone interview. The questions were not random, very general regarding how my experience fits with the job, how I work with others, etc etc. Very good interview process that lasted about 3 1/2 weeks.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at United Nations Foundation.

    Interview Details

    I applied for an intern position online and got an interview a few weeks later. The interview was OK, and they said, "we'll contact you next week". But it just never happened - no response ever since, not even a rejection email. I sent a follow-up email to the interviewer, reiterating my interested and trying to ask about the status, but still got ignored and no response. Kinda frustrating.

    I understand no response for a resume-only-application. But come on, this is a in-person interview...I mean, I would be OK with the fact that I am not qualified and thus rejected, but not like this, not like a silent, rude rejection.

    Such wouldn't be the boss i'd like to work with anyway.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at United Nations Foundation in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for an admin position a few months ago, had one phone interview with HR, then an in person with HR and a department employee. I was told, after i asked, that I was one of three people out of 600 who had applied, which was daunting but cool! I didn't get the job, I was called by the HR guy who explained why, and although it was not nice to be told i was unsuccessful, he encouraged me to keep applying, its tough to be the number one candidate and being one of three was no mean feat.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at United Nations Foundation.

    Interview Details

    A month after I applied online, I was contacted for an in-person interview. The interview was about an hour long, and the questions were fairly manageable. At the end of the interview, I was told candidates would hear back by the end of the following week, but I never received a follow up email. I emailed HR twice and even called in once and left a voicemail, and never received a call or email back regarding the status of my candidacy for the position.

    Prior to my interview, I spoke to someone in HR who told me that the UNF prides itself in sending emails (though generic) to its applicants, so I'm unsure why that wasn't the case for me, and possibly other candidates interviewing for this position.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at United Nations Foundation.

    Interview Details

    Submitted a cover letter and resume online, interviewed over the phone. The interview was very straightforward, asked questions relating specifically to job functions, previous experience, and plans for the summer. There were no extremely difficult questions. After about three days, an offer was extended by the Human Resources Department. Interviews were conducted by members of the specific departmental team, but HR handled technical details.

    Negotiation Details
    No real negotiation about salary, as all interns are paid the same. Start and end dates were flexible.
