    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Red Cross in May 2013.

    Interview

    Very casual interview with the Regional CEO. I think the interview was reflective of her more than of ARC overall. I was already an employee of ARC and heard about this opening at my branch. I applied inernally for it and was granted an interview. I am unsure if there were even other candidates. I did an interview and then was hired for this position.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at American Red Cross in May 2008.

    Interview

    It was very in depth as the position I was interviewing for deploys to the combat zones where the U.S. military is and they wanted to ensure that as an employee we would be able to "rough it" if necessary. Questions were thorough for the job and appropriate.

    • If you had a suggestion to present to your supervisor as to how the office could be more efficient, and they rejected it, how would you take that?   2 Answers

    Negotiation

    There was no real negotiation as the division I interviewed for starts all beginning employees at the same level even though I had many years of experience and credentials that were brought to the table. To me it wasn't fair at all.

    My interview process was very brief. I had a phone interview and in-person interview within 1 week. They were looking to hire quickly so it did seem a bit rushed. It felt chaotic but they were trying to meet an internal deadline.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Charlotte, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The person that does the phone screen is very nice. I got to the 2nd interview, and they were personable. I think I said I didn't like batch records and that is part of it. Was intimidating that a mistake could mean recusal.
