    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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 Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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).
