    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AmeriCorps in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had an phone interview. Maybe because I've already done Americorps back a decade ago, but it was really bad. The screener seemed to hate me for some reason.

    Americorps ACE Crew Member Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Cruz, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (Santa Cruz, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, and had a phone interview a few days later. The interview felt much more like a lecture than most. The majority of time was time was spent informing me about the ins and outs of the job rather than a typical Q&A style interview. Overall the interview was very helpful, as the culture and expectations of crew members (both on and off duty) are much different than I had anticipated based on the initial job posting.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical interview questions:
      Explain a difficult situation that you had while at work. What steps did you take to remedy it?
      What does professionalism mean to you?
      What experience do you have performing physical labor?

    Went through the process of the job responsibilities and how I would react in certain situations on a given project.
