    Income Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Virginia Beach, VA
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Virginia Beach, VA).

    Interview

    It was a strange interview process. First, I was given a test on the computer. It was on management situations. Then I had a phone interview and the questions were exactly the same as the computer test. The person asking the questions never asked for clarification. She said she was just trying to get the "feeling" of my response and that it did not have to be a long answer.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions seemed like you needed to be in the situation to understand.   Answer Question

    Specialist, Relay for Life Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Culver City, CA
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Culver City, CA).

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email the next day requesting me to take a candidate questionnaire. The questionnaire was all multiple choice questions asking how you would deal with volunteers and chair members in various circumstances to assess your work style. The answer choices were a little limited or sometimes two answers would have worked for the same volunteer. I would have preferred a short answer survey to customize my responses but I suppose its much faster to sift through multiple choice answers.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all along the same lines - just testing your leaderships skills in various settings.   Answer Question
