    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.

    Found and applied online - I was contacted via email a couple of weeks later to schedule a phone interview. The interview was about 30 mins with an HR rep, a very nice person. Questions were typical, and mostly general. She just wanted to know what sort of experience I had from previous jobs.

    National Marketing Manager Interview

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview

    I didn't initially have a phone interview. They had me come in a couple days after I submitted my application. I was interviewed by two of the coordinators for that department. They were super nice and easy to talk to. Cracking jokes now and then. They asked me about my background and what I wanted to do in the near future. They wanted to know what I wanted to get out of the internship and what I had to offer. It was pretty standard.

    Though I didnt get the internship position for them, they were kind enough to refer me to one of their colleagues that was also interviewing folks to intern for her too. When the interviewer (my boss now) called, we talked about my background and went through standard questions to follow up what I had previously mentioned in the other interview. I started immediately after.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard stuff. Just go over your resume thoroughly and know what you want to do.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Miami, FL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Depending the person that will give you the internship, they ask you different questions. For example, if the Events Specialist is interviewing you he/she may be focused your personality, and match ways you can contribute to the AHA. It really depends on the person that is interviewing you. There may be the driver personality type that is only focused on results and there are certainly those that exist in the AHA.

    Negotiation

    Very easy. The person that worked there was just very focused and knew what they were doing.
