    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association.

    Interview

    They are an EXTREMELY unprofessional and disorganized non-profit. The job I applied for was listed for 6 months. It took them 3 months after I applied to contact me. I had 2 phone interviews, and then I heard absolutely nothing from them when I followed up on the position.

    How hard is it for HR to send a 2 line email saying I have been rejected? Why can't you show candidates basic human courtesy by responding to them? Is this how you treat Alzheimer's patients too??? Why would anyone ever want to work for you? Disgusting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association.

    Interview

    Average is probably the best word. This was a phone interview. I was called 10 minutes late, from an unfamiliar number. The connection was terrible and I was regularly having to ask her to repeat the questions. Questions were fairly basic. None of the questions listed (here on Glassdoor) for this position or similar positions were asked.

    Healthcare Outreach Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn, and received an email the next day to schedule a phone interview. After choosing a time that worked I never received an email back. I emailed her the day before the supposed interview to confirm the time, and didn't receive a reply again. Anyway the day of there was no call, and I'm very appalled to see the unprofessional manner this was handled. I really loved the position I applied and was looking forward to interviewing, instead my time was wasted and was obviously not a priority to this company. Extremely disappointing.

    Constituent Services Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association (Seattle, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted an application, was contacted by the National Organization for a phone screening, was then referred on to the Chapter for an in person interview, had a second interview with a few additional employees, and then Nationals followed up to get a background check/start the on boarding process. While this sounds like a fairly straight forward process, in its entirety it took 3 months! It was also very clear that the chapter was not on the same page as nationals and vice versa. I was getting conflicting information and conflicting timelines from each.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Interview from applying online. I wasn't really impressed with the director or their qualifications but I was interested in coming from the for-profit side to see what it was like at a non profit. I did not feel that the person I spoke with was a professional but I felt they were very young and inexperienced even though they were a director.

    Communications and Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Timonium, MD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association (Timonium, MD) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Having taken care of a dad with dementia for 5 years, I felt I was a good fit to work for this NPO. I was one of 100 applicants for the job. During my interview with the local chapter Executive Director and the Director of Development, I was told half of the applicants didn't qualify for the position. I was more than qualified due to being a graphic design and marketing consultant for over 20 years. Additionally, I have a Masters degree in Marketing from a respected university.
    The commute to this job would have been about 40-50 minutes on a route known for deadly and frequent accidents. I asked if I could come to the office at 9:15 or 9:30 or work from home once a week. I assured management they would get at least 40 hours/wk from me. This request was met with rejection, and I'm sure it's why I didn't get the job.
