    Client Ambassador Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Accion (Albuquerque, NM).

    Interview

    Initial communication was concise and friendly. Was asked to interview in person a month after I had submitted an application. Interviewer was late, rushed, and clearly wasn't interested in interviewing me. Interviewer lacked professional polish, and did not seem to have read the job description, and was confrontational when asked additional questions. I was told they were moving quickly and that I would have a response within a week. I never heard back.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Accion (Albuquerque, NM) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had a wonderful interviewing experience. I applied at one of the worst times, the weekend before Thanksgiving, but received a personalized reply soon after that my application was under review. From then on the lines of communication were very open and the recruiter was honest about the time frame and what they needed from me. The interviewers were very direct, knowledgeable, and able to answer any and all questions. Overall this was a very god interviewing experience.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accion (Cambridge, MA) in July 2015.

    I had wanted to work for the organization for a few months prior to approaching ACCION. I had went in to the office twice with my résumé and cover letter as well as submitting a general application online. A few weeks after my last visit into the office I received an email from H.R. about interest in interviewing me for a part time position. I had a phone interview with my supervisor and a week or so later a half hour in person interview and at the end of the interview negotiated hours, compensation, and arranged to deliver ACCION previous work that I had done before the final decision was made.
