    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.

    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!

    Community Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    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.

    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

    Average Interview

    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).
