    After submitting my resume, I spoke with an HR representative who arranged for a 30 min phone interview with the hiring manager. I thought the phone interview went well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Washington, DC) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was pretty straight forward but lengthy. I first had an interview via the phone followed by 2 in-person interviews and one Skype interview. The whole process took almost 2 months until it was completed. The length of the process almost made me lose focus. The good news was that I got the interview after completing the long online profile/application. It was the very first time I was contacted for an interview after completed such an un-personal style.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty standard. For example: What are your greatest strengths or weaknesses; what are my best skills; how would I perform in a stressful situation, etc.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was made an okay offer and I felt comfortable to accept it right away

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. I heard back within 2 weeks, and was able to schedule an interview with the HR recruiter, which was relatively straight forward. The interviewer asked about me and my interests and why I chose the Red Cross.

    I was scheduled for another interview about 2 weeks later with the hiring manager, which was a little more difficult because the questions were more specified, but the interview was still pleasant and not stressful.
