    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Syracuse, NY).

    Interview

    After submitting my resume online, I received a call from HR who then made an appointment for me to meet with my now direct supervisor. In about a week, I then met with the team I now work with for a second interview. I received a phone call from HR around a few days and was offered the position based on a background check. I filled out the paperwork to have the background check done and was hired. The entire process took about a month from start to finish. It shows me that they really care about who they hire and if they are the right fit for the team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview

    Online application followed by one way video interview which consisted of screening questions that would normally be asked in a phone screening. Followed up two weeks later to ask where they were in the process. Shortly after, received an invitation for an in person interview. The hiring manager was very direct and stated during the interview that the position included additional responsibilities not included in the job description. It was clear that due to budgetary constraints, the hiring manager was combining multiple positions under the title Executive Assistant. They reviewed my resume and began asking questions about professional experience on my resume that I felt would typically be unrelated to such a position. They were candid about their needs, offered no information about what AHA would offer a new employee. They left very little time for any questions I might have and let me know they had limited time. Additionally, they mentioned a few personal frustrations they had concerning the company. I thought that was unprofessional. It ended abruptly and I was told they would be making a decision quickly. This was a very long process for a misrepresented position. This is very disrespectful to job applicants.

    Event Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Jacksonville, FL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    A few weeks after applying for the job I received an email from HR. The email said "it was a pleasure speaking to you on the phone today..." followed by instructions on how to do the video/online interview. I was never phoned by HR. So I found this confusing and it took me several days to get in touch with her to figure out what was going on. She apologized for never actually calling me and just sending the email and asked me to move forward with the online video interview. After completing that I was contacted for a phone interview with her which I completed. Then she asked me to do a phone interview with the hiring manager. After that was completed she called me and said that they thought I was a "rock star" and wanted to move forward with the final in person interview with a panel of people. She said they were "so confident with wanting to hire me that they wanted me to do an online personality assessment and complete a more detailed application to include references." This online assessment and the time it took for me to include many more details into my online application took me approximately 3 hours of time to complete. I then went in for my in person interview which went very well and took about two hours. I was told by both HR and the hiring panel that I would be notified the following week on moving forward. The following week I heard nothing. I reached out to HR once mid-week and left a vm asking where they were in the hiring process. She never returned my call. The next week I reached out again and left ANOTHER vm for. She did not return my call. Since I was holding off on making some future plans and commitments because I had been given a very strong indication from HR that they would be making me an offer... I tried calling a third time using a blocked caller ID. MY HR recruiter picked up the phone on the second ring and once I identified myself she acted like she had no idea who I was. After she did realize who I was, she said the position has been filled and she sent me an email that I did not receive the position. After triple checking my email, I will verify, that I NEVER received an email from HR or anyone else at the AHA telling me I did not get the position. I am very dissatisfied with the interview process since I took over 10 hours of my personal time to complete all the different interviews and steps. Was led to believe on several occasions from HR that I would be offered the job. And then, no one had the consideration to even call me to tell me that I did not get the position or give me any explanation or reason why. I feel like when someone goes this far in the interview process and it is only down to a few people, AHA should at least have the consideration to call that person... not claim they sent and email which was never sent. The job search process can be very stressful and being in the dark for 2 weeks after my final interview left me with many sleepless nights followed by much frustration when HR would not even return my phone calls.

    Administatve Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Heart Association in May 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted resume. Received call from corporate headquarters (not in the state I would be working). Told resume looked great but needed to do a one-way video interview. Extremely impersonal. Rather surprised that they narrowed the field this way. Quite a bit of a job is if you mesh with the team. Not interviewing with the team was a disappointment. Most skills can be taught - but if your personality is not a fit all the skills in the world will not help. Have not heard back so not expecting it to more forward.
