I interviewed at AARP

Interview

The recruiter was asking very vague questions. Nothing about what the role implied or my skills. I did not feel as though the interview was personal. But then again they might have been having an off day.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at AARP

Interview

Interviewed for a role with the AARP Foundation; the process was fairly straightforward with a recruiter screen, a hiring manager 1-1, and then a panel interview. They are very transparent as to what types of competencies will be evaluated in the interview and methods to prepare. The process however, was fairly disorganized with poor communication. The recruiter screen was unlike anything I've experienced where in essence the recruiter read through question answers they had solicited in advance of the call rather than the call being a conversation. I went through 3 rounds of interviews over the course of 3 weeks and then did not hear anything about my candidacy for about a month when I received a fairly formulaic email telling me they had chosen another candidate which I found to be surprising and rather impersonal. I left the experience with a fairly negative impression.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at AARP

Interview

Unprofessional recruitment process I was excited to hear back from an AARP recruiter and discuss more about the role I applied to. He asked me to share my availability and I did. Two days later and with no response to my email, I received the automated email that they are now considering someone else. Really!? The recruiter didn't even bother to respond to the initial email that HE asked me for and choose the automated default email. It would have not taken more than 5 minutes of his time to respond to my email initially, probably the same amount of time it took him to program that automated response. Very unprofessional and to be honest I'm very disappointed that there was no human decency. I guess the silver lining here is that I would now never consider applying for a position here. What a low blow! Improve your recruitment process and if you do reach out to a candidate have the decency to respond vs sending an automated email. Remember that the person applying is a human being, not a robot! Improve your recruitment process and if you do reach out to a candidate have the decency to respond vs sending an automated email.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AARP in Apr 2022

Interview

Application process was fairly easy, and response was quick. Multi-phased interview process. First interview involved immediate supervisor (one-on-one). Subsequent interview would involve a panel interview with other individuals from the same department who are based in other parts of the state -- some of whom you may have a dotted reporting relation.

Interview Questions

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Los Angeles, CA)

Interview

The entire process lacked coordination. Two interviews were scheduled first with HR, then the hiring manager. I showed up 15 minutes prior to the first interview. HR did not show up, I ended up waited for over an hour, brought up to the hiring manager, waited for another half an hour. The entire interview was simply casual exchange without substance. I followed up with a Thank you note, but received neither acceptance nor reject notification.

Interview

I applied for the summer internship in Jan and heard back a few weeks later for a phone screen. The recruiter was pretty nice and instantly put me forward to the second (and last) round. I had a panel interview with my prospective department. Associates seemed like they could care less about my responses and completely ghosted me after the interview when I tried to follow up. I got a generic rejection about a month after the final interview.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 3 months. I interviewed at AARP (Indianapolis, IN) in Feb 2022

Interview

The interview process was long, but well thought out. My experience was 4 interviews over the course of 3 months. I felt valued as a candidate most of the time. There were a couple of hiccups when I was told I would hear about the next step by X date, and the date came and went without any communication, but I understand my interest in the timeline felt more urgent than it did to them. The process was conducted by an AARP recruiter and the hiring manager.
