    Outreach Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tacoma, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (Tacoma, WA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from one of the supervisors wanting to schedule me for an interview. They were flexible and offered Skype or a phone-interview in-lieu of an in-person interview. Thankfully this position was local for me, so I sat in front of a four person panel and answered basic questions about my relevant work experience. It was a friendly atmosphere overall. I only had the initial interview before I was offered the position and it didn't start until about 3-4 weeks later at the first of the next month.

    Corps Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (Sacramento, CA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    For NCCC you first fill out an online application, you must submit a personal statement and a couple of references. You also must answer questions. The phone interview was relatively easy, and relaxed. They ask you a couple of questions about team work and your work ethic. They ask for examples and then you wait. You may get a phone call later from an Alumni or someone in the corps that asks you if you have any questions about the program.

    Corps Member Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rochester, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (Rochester, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online and after a week, was contacted for an in-person email. The applications are scored and those who pass a certain threshold are given interviews. The in-person interview went for about 30 minutes and most questions were pretty straight-forward. They wanted to make sure you were in it for the right reasons, make sure that you understood that you would be making very little money and that you could live on it, and had a lot of flexibility. Within 2 days, I received a job offer and was given 2 weeks to accept or deny.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCorps in January 2009.

    Interview

    Once you apply through the AmeriCorps website, they do an initial short phone interview (lasting about 15-20 mins). After you have passed the original interview (consisting mainly of why you are interested in this position and just going over the background the what they expect form candidates), they will call back and let you know if you have been selected for another interview. This next interview is done over the phone (lasting about 40 - 60 mins). This interview will give you a few scenarios and then some more typical interview questions (i.e. how are you working on a team? how do you like diversity? how are you working with a person that you have a conflict with). Once that interview is done, you sit back and patiently wait to either get the big acceptance envelope, or the small wait-list/rejected envelope.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase; they tell you when you are expected to leave (mine was the first of February) and then a few weeks before you leave, they provide the flight of transportation information.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at AmeriCorps in June 2011.

    Interview

    The process takes a long time-
    First you submit an application online, including your resume, recommendations, and a personal statement.
    After you've been green-lighted, which can take a long time, you have a super basic phone interview.
    After that, you have a bunch of paperwork to fill out, including complete medical history and a background check.
    After all that, you're finally accepted!
