    Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Washington, DC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Spent most of the time asking me about very specific job requirements that weren't even on the job posting description then was told I probably wouldn't advance because I didn't have these??? If they were so critical then why aren't they on the job posting? What a waste of our time. Now I can see why they have bad employee reviews on GlassDoor. SMH

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Montgomery, AL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Simple. Not to the point. Over a text 3 interviews by higher management. Never once discussed job details or 14-16 hour days. No training in the field nothing explained painted a pretty picture. Very brief off subject

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Port-au-Prince (Haiti)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Port-au-Prince (Haiti)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring and interviewing process was tough with several interviews with a diverse panel and written test to detect level of accuracy in staff and impartial enough to hire the best candidate. Candidates usually go through a lenghty process by filling out information sheet on the job seeker, providing reference for background check.

    Regional Director of Partnerships Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process took six (6!) months! I first applied in Sept. 2015 -- and I finally heard back in March. This is totally unreasonable. I really wanted this job and thought I was a top candidate.
    The HR representative in South Carolina was great and tried to keep me informed, but the local managers seemed somewhat disengaged.

    Biomedical Equipment Technician II In Durham, NC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Durham, NC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter first, which scheduled an interview. I went to the interview, which was very awkward and stuffy, with one person in the room and another on speaker phone. They did the long pauses between questions and even made strange looks to throw me off. I was even asked a poorly crafted question TWICE in a row, which made me think they weren't even listening. When I asked about what I would be doing on this job they said I would be hooking up routers and fixing printers; nothing to do with the job title.

    I was left feeling discriminated and found it ironic that one of the interviewers went out of the way to rhetorically tell me how they "take care of their veterans" after the interview. Then was told I would be contacted a week later.

    I received a declination letter in my email a month or two later and was told I didn't get the job "although my qualifications were impressive."
