    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Norfolk, VA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was great did an over the phone one then scheduled for an in person interview. The position was for Norfolk, Va i would be moving from Houston,Tx anyway did the in person interview on October 26 was called on October 30th to let me know i had the job and needed to be in VA by Nov 20th for the 8 weeks of training. Got a call Oct 31st saying the job was postponed until January so they could close out the fiscal year. I was happy bc it gave me more time to give my apartment complex my 60 day notice but now I'm worried bc i don't know for sure if the job will be there in January. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed but my overall interview was a great experience and everyone was very friendly.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sioux Falls, SD
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Sioux Falls, SD) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Was in training through an Federal Training Program. The organization does incredible community outreach and highly involved in the community but the downfall is when the training ended, they were not able and still are not able to hire paid staff to fill the positions that continue to be filled by volunteers to keep their offices running day to day. They continue to use training programs to fill their staff needs which create a high volume of turn-over. I have continued to follow-up with the Executive Director at the local office to check to see if any changes have been made allowing the hiring of an Administrative Assistant, even on a part-time basis as I enjoyed my experience with the organization.

    Senior Volunteer Services Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Las Vegas, NV) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted for a phone screen via email. In that email I was provided list of questions that I needed to answer in addition to confirming my phone screen. The person who called me to conduct the screening call was not based in the state I was applying. One interesting question was tell me about an ethical dilemma and how you handled it. The call took about 30 minutes. He told me someone would be contacting me the next week if I was going to move forward in the process. Someone from Washington DC called me to schedule an interview with the hiring manager. The position was in Nevada, the Hiring Manager was in Utah, (recruiter for phone screen was in Oklahoma) so it was kind of confusing to understand the coordination of interviewing. I had an interview with the Hiring Manager, just one person over the phone. I don't know if there was another round to the interview.
