    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Cancer Society in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was really informative. They did most of the talking in my case. They were very kind and helpful. After applying, there's a lot of email exchanges and eventuallly they asked me for a phone interview. A tip I would suggest is to take a lot of notes to keep track of all the info being thrown at you so you can have an idea of what kind of questions you would want to ask. The interview itself lasted about an hour so it's good to jot down things you would to remember for later.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at American Cancer Society.

    Interview

    Phone interview was quick and once passed then you take a typing test. You have to pass the typing test and provide 3 professional references before being scheduled for an on-site interview. Was told to allow about 2 and half hours for the interview. I arrived early, HR reps took me back late. You get a tour and then sit with an Amabssador and listen to live calls. Then you go a private room and are interviewed by one of the Team Supervisors. When done, HR rep comes back in to wrap it all up, provides you a packet with ID requirements, benefit package, and overview of the company.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Houston, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple. I was offered a phone interview via email. About 1 week after the first phone interview, I was offered a second phone interview. I was told that in about 1 week I would receive a decision whether or not they wanted to proceed with a third interview in person. Instead of the third interview, I was offered the position 2 days later.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society.

    Interview

    Phone Interview - I called her at a specified time prepared to interview. She was finishing lunch, and had me on speakerphone, although I don't believe any one else was there. This did make it difficult to hear her questions to me, though. The interview lasted 45 min., and I was told I would hear back one way or another within a week. I never heard back from them and the position is still vacant, so I guess I didn't get hired.
