    Division Office & Event Support Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Wasted over a month of my life. Had two "phone interviews" actually, they are just screenings. The third is an in person interview. Person forgot I was even coming and was on her way out when I walked in after she had already rescheduled the interview once. After a five minute interview (since she was leaving), I got a rejection email a week later. Thanks for wasting my time for almost two months. SO unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New Brunswick, NJ).

    Interview

    After sending my resume in response to an online posting, I received an email to set up a phone interview. During the interview I was told what the next steps would be and a time frame. Within that (relatively) short time frame, I was contacted to arrange an in-person meeting. At that meeting I was told I would be hearing from them, and within a week or so I did, setting up a second in-person interview. At that interview, I was told (very apologetically) that I would be asked to come in for a third interview. That happened quickly and an offer was made to me within a few days.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    About a 4 week process. 3 interviews all together. 1st was a phone interview with the recruiter, everyone gets one. 2nd was an in person with the hiring manager. Last was another phone interview with a senior director. I heard back right away after each interview. Make sure you have a flexible schedule and a car or this job is not for you. They say that many times to make sure you are available to work nights and weekends.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had to fill out personality profile/test online. A somewhat silly process as the questions wanted you to don the mindset of the Society work culture. If you have not worked there, you wouldn't understand what they are looking for in a candidate/

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if being "in the field 60 percent of the time would be acceptable" but left out the details. You cover a huge territory with your own vehicle and little compensation in return.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online in April. Received an email from a recruiter a week later for a phone interview. After phone interview I went in person to meet with two senior managers. I was told I would hear back in 1 - 2 weeks. The overall interview was pleasant. I felt extremely comfortable it felt more like we were having a conversation. I followed up with the hiring manager two weeks after my interview, and recieved an automatic response from human resources stating I was no longer under consideration for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New Brunswick, NJ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Began smoothly, then took very long. 1 phone interview, 3 in person interviews at 2 different locations. The day before 2 of the in person interviews, I was given the task of developing marketing pieces. I thought that was a very last minute request, and not the norm.
