    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).

    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.

    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.

If unable to interview in person, you will be asked to interview via Skype. It was a normal question/ answer interview process. The in person interview involved a few scenario based questions.
