    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Heart Association.

    Interview

    This is a long process. You will have four interviews over the span of four weeks. Be patient and it will pay off. It is long and slow and the questions are basically the same just with different people. If you get interviewed by a peer in the office you are doing well.

    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

    Communications Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    My interview with the American Heart Association was by far the fastest and most efficient interview I've ever experienced. While the initial video interview, in which we had to record ourselves responding to a series of questions, seemed odd at first it was a great opportunity to go beyond the resume and show AHA why my personality was a great fit for the organization. In addition, AHA brought in senior staff from the national center (a multi-hour plane ride away) to interview me in person. It just goes to show that even large nonprofits like AHA will still take time to make sure they find the right candidates.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Heart Association (Okemos, MI) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The beginning of my interview process started with a video interview where you would be given questions and then you had to record yourselves giving your response. From there I was contacted for an in-person interview where I spoke with the directors who were doing the actual hiring. It was a very welcoming environment and I left the interview even more interested in the company than when I arrived because of how highly the directors talked about AHA. From there I had a phone interview with someone from another department and a follow up interview in person again where I met the other Administrative Assistants in the office, which was again very welcoming and friendly. I was then contacted by HR a few days later with my offer. Overall, such a great experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Aside from the usual past relevant work experience questions, one question I thought was particularly cool was that they asked me aside from the department I was applying to work for, what other areas I was interested in gaining experience in.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I would like to preface my review by saying that everyone I corresponded with was extremely nice and great! Any issues I had with the process were a result of the centralized interview structure and not the people involved.

    Essentially, this interview seemed way too intense for an entry level job. By the end of the process, there were four separate parts- a recorded video interview, a phone interview, an in person interview, and a final in person interview. I think this whole process can be streamlined. They are asking people to take at least two days off of work at times for a job that they may or may not get. The final interview was over two hours and consisted of very canned questions that became redundant. The questions are the same for every job at this organization- that doesn't seem efficient because every role is different. I think AHA needs to be more considerate of the time off people have to take and maybe consider making the final interview only for the top contender.

    I think the process needs to be more personalized.
