I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – The most difficult question was in my current job, how to I prioritize tasks from different team members, when the priority may not be overtly clear.   View Answer

Intern Interview

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at United Nations Foundation in April 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process was seamless. I had an initial phone interview with my potential superiors, an interview with the department, and then a final interview with human resources. The interviews were conducted in a professional, yet casual manner. I was impressed with the questions asked regarding both my personal and professional background. Overall, a very good interview experience.

Administrative Assistant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at United Nations Foundation in January 2011.

Interview Details – After submitting my resume online, I was contacted by someone from HR. They sent me 5 questions that I had to answer and return in a few days (why are yo interested in the position, etc.) . After they reviewed my answers, I was called for an interview. My interview was rescheduled 1 hour before it was supposed to take place. When I showed up for my rescheduled interview I was supposed to meet with three people, but only spoke with one person. The woman I spoke with didn't have anything prepared for the interview, just a casual conversation. I was a little surprised by the process. I got the impression that the office is busy, but that they also weren't particularly interested in interviewing for the open position (it was not a priority).
