    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society.

    Interview

    It took about ten days to get the initial interview from the recruiter. It was very conversational based and relaxed. Described the position very well and excited me about the position. I've moved on to the next interview (phone with a senior community manager)

    Grass Roots Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society.

    Interview

    An initial phone screen, followed by an in-person interview. The process was quick and maybe took 2 weeks. Unfortunately, in the initial interview with the recruiter, he SPECIFICALLY said there was no fund raising as part of the position. When I got to the in-person interview, SURPRISE! There was. I don't find that to be professional in the slightest.

    Applied online. Within 4 days received an email to schedule a phone interview with a recruiter. A week later received an email from a Senior Manager to schedule a second in person interview with two senior managers and myself.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society in April 2017.

    Interview

    Did a phone interview with a recruiter. Took about 3 weeks longer than I was told to hear back. Invited to an in-person interview with Supervisor and Regional Director. Interview itself was fairly easy and laid-back, mostly them talking. I was told I would hear back from the recruiter within three days "either way", however I never heard back.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute phone screening, followed by an in-person interview a week later. Phone screen was high-level, went over details of the job and reviewed my present and past employment. In-person was with 2 members of the team. Based on previous comments here I thought it would be all situational questions but it was more of an informal conversation about what my role would be, how my skills could transfer over and expectations for the role. All interviewers were friendly, open and great representatives for ACS. I appreciated that they were very up front about pay, expectations and had a very clear view of the role.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Wasted over a month of my life. Had two "phone interviews" actually, they are just screenings. The third is an in person interview. Person forgot I was even coming and was on her way out when I walked in after she had already rescheduled the interview once. After a five minute interview (since she was leaving), I got a rejection email a week later. Thanks for wasting my time for almost two months. SO unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    3-week long process. Typing test. Phone interview. And face to face interview with a mid-level employee. The phone interview and face to face interview utilize the STAR (situation, task, action, response) method and are pretty difficult interviews.

    Program Manager, Mission Delivery Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mishawaka, IN

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Mishawaka, IN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    An personally-known employee advised me to apply online and set me up with an initial interview. After applying online, I received a phone call with two weeks to schedule the first interview. The first interview was a 40-minute phone conversation with a recruiter (Senior Manager) from a NY location. The interview went very well and was in touch by email of the available times for a second phone interview with a recruiting office in Chicago. This phone interview went very well and was told I would be contacted two days later to schedule the panel discussion with local recruiters and other managers. I never received this notification. I emailed the 2nd recruiter and did not get any response back. I contacted the local ACS office and was directed to the Chicago office to leave a message for the Chicago recruiter to contact me to give me an answer of what was going on. Again, zero response. I asked the employee who referred me to the positions and was told to reapply online because the application was not yet received -- which was very odd to me given I had proof of completion and sent it. It was not until 3 months later that I received a response from a different person regarding that other candidates were selected for the position. It baffled my mind on why the process did not move forward after such a promising interview with the Senior Director in Chicago. It was very unprofessional the way this was handled. If you're not initially interested in moving forward, just let the candidate know immediately instead of dragging it on for MONTHS.
