    Interview Details

    I applied online and then had one phone interview. I was offered the job before i even hung up. The on boarding process was a bit awkward. They threw me in a room and introduced me to everyone at the company one on one. Each in counter lasted about 15 seconds. Other than this first awkward filled day, It was a great place to work.

    Interview Details

    I got an interview because I called, showed interest, and asked the right questions. The first part of the interview was lead by the main interviewer. She asked lots of typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The second part was a round robin with three or four other people asking objection questions such as: how do you feel about having a positive attitude while working with the poor, how are you going to adapt to a different culture (I was moving), etc.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, this is a VISTA position. If you are interested in coming back as a VISTA leader / want to work for them mention it early. (Great way to get your foot in the door by working for them for two years first, though I haven't started working for them yet.)

    Interview Details

    After applying online, a phone interview answering behavioral type questions. The in-person interview was a 5 minute presentation on United Way. Don't go over 5 minutes! Being concise and impactful is important, don't read straight from a paper. I focused on expanding on the mission and did my research to be able to present relevant statistics.

    Very lax - was interviewed informally and my hiring director left the company one week after I started. Very unorganized and not a proper structure. Told me that they would structure position around me and then did not.

    Director - Event Planning Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at United Way.

    Interview Details

    I first applied for the opportunity via a job board with no response from the hiring manager. Over six months later I was referred to the hiring manager by her management. This referral led to an interview.

    During the interview with the hiring manager, it was evident she had not looked at my resume. It took her a minute to locate my resume among the piles of paper on her desk. Her questions were surface. Not one of her questions attempted to understand how I would perform in the role or draw a parallel between my experience and how i would successfully apply it.

    The interview lasted approximately 20 minutes and her demeanor was absolutely off-putting. The most bizarre aspect of the interview were her descriptions about how she survived working at the organization through multiple layoff rounds.

    Interview Questions
    • Cannot recall a difficult or unexpected question. Though there were unexpected comments from the interviewer.   Answer Question
