    Interview

    After a screening phone interview in early spring, the HR said the accounting department is under re-organization so they won't have any interns during the summer. At the early June, the same HR contacted me again to set up an interview. I went in, a pretty conversational interview with my manager and got the offer right way, At the end of interview, he is actually showing me around and meeting people.

    Vice President, Strategic Alliances Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AARP in July 2012.

    Interview

    Very slow process. They want to be fast moving, but they aren't. It seems to me if you want to change corporate culture you would indeed emulate that during the process. Have to know someone to get the job - network is the only way in. The recruiter didn't even know about the COO telling them who to hire - seems to be a waste of time for everyone.

    Interview

    A high-up and experienced editor is in charge of hiring interns and did the one-on-one interview with me in the AARP Magazine office in Washington, DC. She asked about my experience and my writing skills. It was a very comfortable interview.

    Interview Questions

    • She asked about my writing process: how I research and write my stories, and she asked how I am at pitching stories.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were not very flexible when negotiating less hours, which made it difficult as a student. I know a friend of mine that would have been a great member of their team had to turn down the position because they weren't flexible with their hours.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn with a resume and cover letter. Phone interview with talent manager went really well. Brought in for an interview with VP and team manager, extremely revenue driven. The building was huge, walking through the various floors, departments, and hallways, I just got a disconnected vibe—no smiles, no nods, no acknowledgement for another human being in an elevator with you, nothing. That didn't read super promising for a welcoming work environment.

    Over the phone and in person. Deepen the questions as you narrow the field: Subsequent interviews with finalists are valuable opportunities to learn more about them. Consider adding "show me" exercises such as a strategic planning exercise or a "walk me through what you'd do" activity involving a real business challenge the individual would be facing.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly wanted me to elaborate on my resume and writing.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AARP in August 2011.

    Interview

    Everyone I encounter was very professional and quite nice. So much so that I was initially unsettled by it - probably because the people at my current job are the total opposite. A very good telephone interview and then a real face to face interview without the canned questions - we actually had a good conversation. I could tell my resume was studied and we discussed the realities of the position - the challenges and the expectations. The good impression that I had for the organization was improved with this meeting.
