    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AmeriCares Foundation (Stamford, CT) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process for this opportunity came suddenly to fill the very big shoes of a very talented young Media Manager advancing their career outside the company. The interviews were carefully coordinated, bundled with a wealth of information and the expectations set are achievable as well as clearly defined and laid out.

    The HR representatives warmly welcomed me to the organization and presented a truly wonderful and insightful overview of the history of AmeriCares, the expectations of the role, and a solid first step on what my first 90 days will comprise of.

    Overall the HR team follows in their leadership's values and professionalism, transforming what seemed like an overwhelming spot to fill into an achievable and desirable employment opportunity. Truly excited.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AmeriCares Foundation in November 2014.

    Interview

    It almost seemed like the company was really desperate to hire someone. The person I spoke to on my first interview was rude and didn't seem like he cared about his job. Turned me off completely. I think that if the people who work there were better representatives of the company, I would be writing a completely different review. I want to work somewhere with high employee morale.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were pretty basic, but asked a lot about non-profit experience.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCares Foundation (Stamford, CT).

    Interview

    Phone interview, in-person interview and then a panel interview. Questions are asked about previous experiences, analytical, technical and behavioral questions. Interview is more like a conversation that you engage in. Interviewers are very positive and they have a great attitude. I think they study your body language and behavior. If you pass the in-person interview they give you an assessment to do (relevant to the duties in your role)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCares Foundation (Stamford, CT) in July 2011.

    Interview

    They started with a phone interview. After that I had an in-person interview at the HQ, where I met with HR and the direct manager for the position. My third interview was again in-person at the office, where I met with the direct manager, the HR director, and about four other people all involved in the job in some way. Each interviewed me after I took an editing test.

    Interview Questions

    • I wouldn't call it difficult, but the most frequently asked question in the third round was how I worked. I'm not sure what they were looking for in this answer, but everyone asked it. Specifically they asked how I went about finding out information for the stories I would be writing. I could only draw on prior experience for this one - and I'm not sure it was what they were looking for. The best question I was asked concerned what my favorite piece of writing was, and why.   Answer Question
