    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.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Yakima, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I saw the job on-line and applied via the web. The next day I had an email telling me to go to a website and schedule a phone interview. I was able to schedule the phone interview for that same afternoon. When I got the call the first thing the interviewer asked was whether I'd be willing to work any shift any time (shifts are 7am-3pm, 3pm-11pm, 11pm-7am). I said no, that I couldn't do that. Then she said that it was a requirement, she said thank you, and then hung up on me. Why they didn't put that in the job requisition is beyond me.

Sehr netter Kontakt - kann ich nur empfehlen.
