    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society.

    Interview

    When I first got the call after I applied, they said the first interview would be over the phone - so we set up a time/day to do so. First phone interview went well (lasted about 15-20 minutes), said they would like to continue interview in person.
    Went in for second interview, first in person - went well, everyone was nice, he introduced me to most of the employees, and showed me where my potential office might be (I felt really good about getting the job!)
    Called me back the next day to say they wanted to do another in person interview with the area director who would be in town. Went in for THIRD interview, everything went well - lots of questions about what kind of person I am, and wanted every detail of all sales experience I had.
    Called me back a couple days later saying they wanted to do another interview, this time with several people in the office. By this time, I was really losing patience - either you want me or you don't!
    Went in for FOURTH interview, went well. Same questions, just asked differently just like I felt how the other interviews went.
    Call back a few days later, saying a different area director was in town and wanted to meet me. Went in and met with her, things went well - pretty short interview, and I don't blame her I'm not sure what other info anyone could squeeze out of me.
    Called me back a couple days later and did what was basically another phone interview. I didn't even care about the job anymore by this point, I felt like I was in an horrible relationship and I couldn't break up with the person or something.
    Called me back again a couple days later and finally said that they didn't think I was right for the job because I didn't have enough sales experience. I nearly had a nuclear meltdown - I told them from the beginning I barely had any sales experience so I'm not sure what they were doing wasting their time and my time by doing SIX interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me many times what I would do if one of the cancer patients/survivors started clinging to me and wanting to be my friend or be able to call me personally.   1 Answer

    Community Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    The interview was long - it lasted a full hour. The questions were abstract and many of them were situational questions that seemed completely unrelated to the position. Many of the questions were also open-ended, prompting you to give an examples of how you respond to different instances. It was extremely vague and some of the questions were unclear.

    Primary Care Manager, Health Services Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Wilmington, NC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview within 3 weeks of submitting the e-application. Two separate in-person interviews at the ACS local office, then a conference call in the local office. Seems like the "leadership" travels quite a bit so even though I was onsite at the ACS local office I was on a conference call line with a couple members of the interview team ... and other members were sitting in the room with me. Very in-dept interview process

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society in November 2014.

    Interview

    They contacted me via email and phone to set up a phone interview. During the phone interview they ask about 40-50 questions back to back that you have to answer somewhat quickly and there is no break in between. They are rapid fire, situational interview style questions. It felt like the majority of the questions had to do with managing volunteers.
