    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview

    Applied online to their internship program, where you can select your top three departments that you'd like to work with. I received an email setting up a phone call a few weeks later from the communications department. They consisted of classic behavior questions, and I received a email afterwards that I was officially an intern.

    I applied for summer internship on their website and got a phone interview. At first the interviewer introduced the summer project and the responsibilities of interns. Then I was asked some basic questions, like the current University, degree, major and location. Also, she asked what drew me to this position and what made me a good candidate. Finally, there were some questions about the proficiency for Microsoft Office and HTML.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume to the volunteer specialist who was tasked to find and interview interns each semester. Keep in mind an internship with the local Red Cross chapter is NON-PAID (but a summer internship at the ARC headquarters in Washington, D.C. is paid)

    It was a quick process. In one week the volunteer specialist contacted me for an interview, I went to do the interview, and they hired me two days later.They are looking for college students that are good at what they do (whether it's in finance, communication, outreach, or casework), but are also motivated by the mission statement of "alleviating human suffering" and want to make a difference in the community. If you only care about money, the Red Cross isn't the company for you.

    Interview Questions

    • 1) Why do you want to intern at the Red Cross?
      2) Do you have a desire to continue to volunteer with us after the internship is over?
      3) What drives you everyday at work?   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process took about one month. The first is a phone interview from volunteer service volunteer. The second is from the department of your background. There are more than ten questions. Almost all of them are behavior questions. They may ask some questions based on your background, like: Why you chose XX as your major? What is your current level of your major?
