    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AACR (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2017.

    Applied online - received a phone interview 4 weeks later. Call was with an outside recruiter so did not have all direct insight in to the company. Did not have salary or benefits information available to share.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AACR (Phila, PA).

    Interview

    I had a phone screen, which to me, seemed to be done by someone with no experience in interviewing. The interviewer was very unknowledgeable.

    I interview with the head if HR and then with dept manager. Within a few days HR called to offer me the job. I accepted and gave notice. A few days passed and HR Director called to tell me I had to interview with the CEO and that the salary would be $10,000 less. Mind you this was after she extended me the offer a few days prior and I had already resigned from my position. This was the most unprofessional interview I have ever encountered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AACR.

    Interview

    It took them MONTHS to get back to me, so if you expect a quick response don't waste your time. A couple of tests then two interviews with heads of your department. You won't hear back from HR or your interviewers if you email them.

    Events/Volunteer Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AACR (Philadelphia, PA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted the resume and the HR recruiter called me. Before I came in for my interview, I had to submit a personality test online. Then 2 hours out of the 3 hour interview in-person was me taking a spelling test, grammar test, cognitive ability test, and writing sample. I understand wanting to be thorough but they also refuse to give you feedback on any of the tests/activities you do which seems to defeat the purpose of having you do the exercises. I then had an interview with the HR recruiter and then the actual hiring manager. Neither of them were able to clearly articulate what the main job responsibilities were which was a red flag.. it didn't feel like I would be a good match for the company and I didn't feel respected during the interview process (this wasn't my first job!).

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AACR (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    I submitted an email with my resume and salary history for the Executive Assistant position in June. I was contacted for an interview end of June. During the interview process, I was given a spelling test, a typing test, and a reading comprehension/summary test.

    After the tests, I spoke with a director and immediate supervisor of another position because the hiring interviewer said I might fit better with that particular department.

    I was offered a position in August.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AACR (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    By far the most unusual and frustrating interview experience I have ever had. Began with a surprise test - first a spelling/grammar test which apparently every applicant must take, followed by a writing sample. Neither were difficult but to discover on the spot that you are to be tested when you are already nervous is somewhat disrespectful in my opinion. Following the tests and interview with HR, I was told that I was an ideal candidate and instructed to clear my schedule for an upcoming interview the following week, and I never heard from them again!

    Interview Questions

    • The tests were the most unexpected aspect of the interview process, everything else was fairly standard.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AACR (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was long and drawn out. It took over three months to finally get through everything. I had to interview with more than 4 people of which 2 I would not even be supporting. They tried to really low ball the salary. I stood firm and finally received a call back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AACR in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was called for the first interview the day after submitting my application online. I was told that the interview would consist of a typing test, a spelling/grammar test, an interview with human resources, and possibly an interview with the hiring manager. I passed all of my tests and interviewed with both human resources and the hiring manager plus the immediate supervisor of the position I was applying for.
    I was told I wouldn't hear anything right away due to a huge annual meeting coming up.
    The day after the annual meeting, I received another phone call, to set up a second interview.
    I had the second interview with the same hiring manager and supervisor as before. They asked me a lot of questions about multi-tasking, deadlines, and repetitive work.
    A few days later, I received a phone call from HR, asking to check my references. I liked that they asked me first.
    Then I was called in to interview with a different department. This was a much more casual interview, except that the entire department was brought in to meet me.
    About 2 hours later I received another phone call, and this was the job offer.
