    Cons

    -Volunteers being very passionate which sometimes resulted in them butting heads.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society.

    Interview

    Was contacted right away after having applied via their website. The phone interview went well, although a bit awkward as it was apparent she was typing my responses... not a terrible thing, but it made the interview rather halting and since she was reading from a script she had no meaningful followups. Was told I would be contacted in "several weeks". After 3 weeks I reached out to radio silence. After several attempts at communication I finally received a response. If you take the time to interview someone it's reasonable for the person being interviewed to expect some sort of follow up. I found the overall experience distasteful and truthfully, unprofessional for the job title of the person who conducted the interview.
