    Community Manager Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    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.
