    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jacksonville, FL

    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.

    National Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    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

    Administatve Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    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.
