    Mentor Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    This position was referred to me, by someone that had oversight of the program. There was about 2 weeks between turning in my application and the actual interview process.

    The program was working directly with a School District so the Director of Community Engagement for the school district administered the interview.

    The interview was typical direct questions of
    -Tell me about yourself
    - Why are you interested in Americorps VISTA?
    - What skills (from experience) will you be able to bring to being a recruiter?
    -What are some challenges that you foresee and how will you maneuver?

    There was also a portion of time when the Director was trying to make sure that I knew what I was getting into and that it was volunteer... she wanted to make sure that I wasn't going to quit because she felt my education level was higher than many of the other volunteers.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were not difficult (standard general questions). The interview is more of a time of them getting to know you and an informational for seeing if it is an opportunity of interest.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase. Americorps VISTA is a stipend program and you know the details of the stipend prior to interviewing.

    Interview

    Very lengthy, done completely over the phone. The process also required in-depth recommendation forms to be filled out by people who can attest to your character and abilities. There is also an in-depth questionnaire about your experience in community work and why you think you would make a good AmeriCorps.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AmeriCorps.

    Interview

    Varies a lot based on the site--had interviews over Skype and phone, with some sites doing multiple rounds of interviews.
    Common questions across all were, "How prepared are you to live on the [low] VISTA living allowance?" "How are your Spanish skills? [since I was interviewing for Spanish-speaking nonprofits]"

    Interview

    I'm pretty sure I just submitted an application online and was quickly called in for a face-to-face interview. I did the interview, and was hired that day. I think it's because no one else wanted to do the job.
