    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC) in October 2014.

    Program Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Mine was a one on one interview. Basic Standard questions but the behavioral questions are tough. You need to have answers prepped and rehearsed. Managers and above will most likely be a panel interview. HR hands them questions to ask.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you were at a meeting and you wish you would have spoken up and WHY?   Answer Question
    • If you were a car, what kind of car would you be and why?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AARP (SeaTac, WA).

    Interview

    Phone interviewer was delightful and I got moved up to a face to face interview with a panel. I thought I did well if over qualified. No further communication after the interview...no thanks but no thanks...nothing. I find this rude behavior after I spent a morning driving down to SeaTac. This type of interview behavior has to stop.

    Business Optimization Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Applied online, had a preliminary interview phone call where I talked to the manager about my resume, and general desires to work at AARP and the position. Then I came in for an in-person interview. It was divided into three parts. First I met with the Business Optimization team, and discussed my fit for the position in more detail and my future professional ambitions. Second, I met with 2 managers, who explained to me the projects the team works on and their aims, and they wanted me to pinpoint my past experiences that empower me as a strong candidate. Last part was just meeting with two other heads to discuss any final concerns, etc. Overall, great experience - more like a discussion than being grilled.

    Digital Strategist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within 10 days for an initial phone screen. That went well, and they scheduled me to come in for an in-person interview with 2 people within the week. The in-person interview lasted about an hour and included set questions but was also conversational. I was provided with benefits information before the interview as well. Throughout the process, everyone was friendly and helpful. After the interview, I followed up with my HR contact a couple times, but never heard back about the status of my application (it's now been about a month since the interview). This greatly surprises me, as up until that point the contact was good about communicating with me. Because of this, I will think twice about applying at such an organization again.
