    Phone screen went. Panel interview. After taking my time to interview, I never heard back from anyone. I thought they would have been a little professionally (especially in HR). Given the reputation of AARP, I would have expected more!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AARP.

    Interview

    The interview process is in 3-4 parts. The first interview is a brief walk through your résumé. The second interview is a lengthy phone interview with a direct manager/state director. The next interview is a panel interview of 5 people with a 30 minute exercise involved. The final interview was another, albeit more brief call with the state director. Very lengthy, and anxiety building process.
