    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AmeriCorps.

    Interview

    There were two interviews. The first was a phone interview with an office intern. The second was an in person interview with my potential supervisor. This interview was conducted over a year ago the process has since then changed. I have heard that the branch now requires a short oral presentation on behalf of the interviewee and a group interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (Bloomington, IN) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly simple. The first regional manager I talked to seem to have her head on straight. The second team leader manager wasn't so great. She asked interview questions that the regional manager had asked before and it didn't show that she was given any information about the candidate.

    One-on-one interview with a senior HR member. Not stressful and no need to "prove oneself." It's just a matter of showing you care about serving deserving students and that you can handle the job/year.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at AmeriCorps.

    Interview

    I was called in and interviewed by two employees of the organization I would be working for. They asked me about my qualifications for the specific duties listed on the job application, so this will vary from person to person.

    They asked me if I was okay getting so little money (it is a very measly pay-which I knew going in).

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Group interview, but it was so unorganized and the interviewers were late and confused on how they even wanted to interview everybody. They asked the same 19 questions from what seemed to be a google doc and they all weren't even aware of how to work it. I could also see some scores for certain candidates as they interviewed. It was awful. It lasted maybe 3 hours for no reason. Nobody knew how they even wanted the interviews to go.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AmeriCorps (Long Is City, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    For a VISTA position, I had about an hour long interview that felt personal and like a real conversation with my interviewer. It was a welcoming environment and felt they really listened to what you had to say. They also write down your answers to send to Americorps offices.

    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.
