    Pros

    Select leadership is open, flexible, and understanding. Organizational culture and attention to structure are thoughtful, authentic, and an overall great learning experience. If you are looking to own your own projects with independence and responsibility, this is a great place to learn rapidly and fail fast...a pretty good environment.

    Cons

    Professional development and learning is dependent on your team and the team's ability to mentor. Expectations are definitely unrealstic and certain leaders are not as open to outside opinion as they claim to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you are open to conflicting opinions, not just with your words, but in your actions.
    Realize that unrealstic goals put a strain on morale.

    Associate Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at KaBOOM! in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is about 4 or 5 rigorous stages. Each interview is conducted over their video conferencing line. Many situational questions are asked. It is impoortant to know what the job is before applying and interviewing with the company. During the 3rd interview, you are expected to go out on a Build and work with the staff and community. This helps the KaBOOM! staff understand how you work with a large group of people.

    Interview Questions
    • You will be asked situational questions. What happens if a funding partner requires healthy food options and your community wants to supply McDonalds? How would you set up your Build event? How are you with planning?   Answer Question
