    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at American Heart Association (New York, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    My interview was 16 years ago and I know that the hiring process has changed. Someone from "Talent called me and there was a 20-30 minute phone interview. Then I was scheduled for a face to face interview where the resume was reviewed and general questions were asked. The final phase was an extensive hour long SIDS interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Boston, MA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    -phone screen
    -video recorded interview
    -online application (in addition to initial application)
    -in-person interview

    I felt this application and screening process was a bit time-consuming, especially when it became clear in the interview they were not interested in moving forward. AHA makes you jump through a lot of hoops and it may not be worth it in the end.

    National Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Dallas, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly challenging, but I appreciate the organization's commitment to hiring qualified individuals. The process was as follows:
    1) Video interview. The AHA sent a link to complete an online, video recorded interview. This was the most stressful part of the entire process for me. You're given 20-40 seconds to read a question before the recording portion begins. Once your timer starts, you have a set number of minutes you can use to answer the question(s) asked. I believe there were 8-10 in total, and they were not your typical "initial interview/phone screen" questions. They dove deep into my experience, my past project management skills, they asked for specific examples of past work completed, etc. You cannot go back and watch your recordings, but if you feel you did poorly, they give you the chance to do the entire interview again. You, however, may not go back to specific questions and re-record those individually. The entire interview has to be completed again.
    2) Phone interview with my hiring manger. This was very similar to a one-on-one in-person interview, just done over the phone.\
    3) In-Person panel interview. Four AHA staff members were in the room, and it was a round robin discussion.
    4) Offer letter.

    Interview Questions

    • Discuss how you prioritize tasks when you have multiple projects due in a short amount of time. What steps did you take to ensure everything was completed? How do did you plan schedules around it? Give examples from your previous experience.   Answer Question
