    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at YWCA in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume, one phone call, one interview by the entire board and no followup by them. No phone call, no thanks anyway, no letter indicating someone else was selected. Very unprofessional. I sent a thank you note to the interviewers and followed-up with a phone call. Neither one resulted in any feedback.

    Program Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at YWCA in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview itself was fairly easy and not intimidating. However, it seemed as though the Human Resources person that did the interview did not understand the program (fitness) that the interview was about. They were not able to elaborate or give "fitness" examples of the questions. The questions were probably used across the board with EVERY department at the YWCA.

    Negotiation Details
    Very little room for growth within the company. And get used to the mission statement, they DRIVE it into you every day.
