    Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview

    Applied and was quickly contacted by a recruiter to set up a phone interview. The first attempt at a phone interview went poorly, as the recruiter had marked his calendar for another day and did not complete the interview on the day that had been scheduled. The second phone interview went well, simple behavior based questions. I was then invited to an in-person interview in a city 1 1/2 hours away. I took off work, went for the interview and thought it went well. Was told to expect a phone call from the recruiter to set up a final interview. Over a week later, I have yet to hear back from the recruiter after multiple attempts to reach him. Feedback, whether that be positive or negative, would have been very much appreciated.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Red Cross in January 2018.

    Interview

    Process took less than a week. Applied online. Next day received an email directly from a recruiter to take a personality test and if everything went well I’d get a call to conduct a phone interview. I took the personality test and received a call about 2 hours later. Super nice recruiter explained the position,pay,hours, and how the training process works. Once I said it was something I wanted to move forward with she asked me basic questions about my past work experience. Also if my phlebotomy certificate was current. Very easy. She then said she would love to have me meet with the collections manager at the site I would be training and working at for a face to face interview. Went 2 days later. Manager again explained the position, pay, scheduling, and how training works. She then asked a series of scenario questions and some past experience ones. I was told I’d get a call from the recruiter if they choose to move forward. Very friendly
    experience. Got a call 3 hours after my interview with a job offer pending background check and drug test. Drug test was nonchalant just picked a location nearest me and walked in and did my thing. Fast and easy interview all together.
