    Volunteer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process consisted of a question and answer of simple questions as to why I wanted to be a volunteer. Followed by a back round check. I did notice that almost everyone on staff was Jewish. Though that did not bother me because I can work with any ethnicity.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association.

    Interview

    Easy, conversational. The hiring manager, who was also my supervisor, is a very laid back person with a realistic view of the workplace. The job was explained thoroughly and I knew exactly what to expect. All in all a great experience; I have nothing negative to say!

    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.

    Development Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association (Houston, TX) in May 2011.

    I interviewed over 2 days. I met with one person the first day. I met with 3 people the second day. Before the second interview I was briefly stuck in the elevator.

    Development Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Alzheimer's Association (Dayton, OH) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I walked into the office and asked to meet directly with the Development Director. After a quick 15 minute meeting, she encouraged me to apply for one of the Walk Coordinator positions. I sent my application, resume and cover letter that afternoon and was given a phone interview two weeks later. Upon the conclusion of the phone interview, I was invited back to meet with the other Development staff the next week. After that interview, I was again invited back to meet with the Executive Director and after 3 interviews over 6 weeks, I was offered the position because I had been the only candidate to send a handwritten thank you note.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you respond to a prospect if they turned you down and how would you turn it into a yes?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no discussion of benefits or salary beyond the offer and the official letter. My naivete as it was my first salaried position was a major factor in this.
    I was immediately given another event to coordinate and no additional compensation, which was my fault for not asking for a raise due to anxiety that they would replace me. Live and learn...
