    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Austin, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a currently open position a few months back. The woman who was in contact with me was very kind and friendly. I applied but unfortunately the start date didn't work with my prior commitments. She told me to look out online for a position opening within the next weeks from the time of our conversations. When I saw the posting it had already been up for a few days (I hadn't seen it as I was going through graduation motions). I applied but in the end I never heard back. I guess I never fully went through the interview process as I only got one call after the first application that ended when the start date didn't work with my time frame. I was somewhat disappointed as I thought after all the contact there would have at least been a call for the second application I submitted.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    The Interview process consisted of an initial phone call, followed by a 45 minute phone interview, and then an in house interview with the hiring manager. The in house interview also included a tour of the call center, a side-by-side with an existing employee and the interview itself. Everyone I interacted with was very friendly and clear about the day to day of the job.

    Interview Questions

    • How have you handled conflict in the workplace or with a customer?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined as I was looking for a position with more growth opportunities. I completely respect the organization and the important work they do and would be interested if other opportunities with more growth arise later!

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Lengthy but it felt like once I was in, I could move around. Two phone interviews and one in-person interview. The interview felt informal as it was the end of the day on a Friday. It wasn't the most professional interview I've had. Managers aren't really trained with proper supervisory techniques and don't necessarily know how to interview for candidates.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked how I could handle travel. The role is like a sales rep position without the perks.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    Interview

    Received a phone call asking if I was available to speak for a bit and we talked about qualifying and disqualifying questions such as: what salary range are you looking for?" (pretty standard). THEN we scheduled a phone interview; an assessment followed (typing test); and then the onsite interview with a recruiter and the department manager (it is a call-center job).
