    Digital Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is basically a personality interview that isn't particularly well planned. They do focus on some questions about how you would address specific problems, but aren't really prepared with follow up questions or a specific style that they would like. It was all a bit disorganized several people were late to the interview at their specific times and some repeated questions that had been asked. More than anything they left me with a bad impression of professional standards and ability of the people for whom I would be working.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at AARP.

    Interview

    Phone interview - poorly handled by a contractor, who was nice enough but lacked many significant details about the job and didn't ask much other than the standard stuff. Plus… she told me she had also applied for this same job! Ethical conflict doesn't seem the right way to leave a good impression with your candidate pool, AARP.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at AARP (Washington, DC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    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!

    Internship Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at AARP (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    A colleague of mine worked in the international office over the summer. She recommended me for the position. All I did was send my cover letter and resume over and was quickly invited to come in for an in person interview. During the interview we briefly went over resume and I offered the position on the spot. I have been working there two months and love the organization, the chance to go to the UN, and the change to write memo and plan events.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AARP.

    Interview

    Recruiter would call, show interest, and then no contact for weeks. Rinse and repeat. Finally, I had a video interview where I had to answer questions within two minutes. After that I had a Skype interview with a manager that lasted about 45 minutes. I received an offer the next day. Had to negotiate the final salary (which was really below expectation). AARP pays below market.
