    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amnesty International in May 2015.

    Interview

    Four people interviewed me. It was an incredibly short interview process, maybe no more than ten or fifteen minutes long, and there were no major curveballs thrown -- they were exactly the types of questions that you would expect for your position. Have a good knowledge of the position beforehand.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Amnesty International in May 2016.

    Interview

    There was only one step to the process, after sending in my appplcation I was asked for a phone interview. This lasted about half an hour though there was a mix up on their end when we first set up the date and time, they ended up forgetting to call me and we had to reschdule. Overall it was a very easy interview, they asked about my event planning background along with my purpose for doing this.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Amnesty International (Washington, DC) in January 2014.

    Interview

    2 interviews with basic questions, one was in person and another was on the phone. Folks were very nice and not much pressure at all. Was drilled about the department's work and AIUSA in general. Felt like the second interview was more cursory as the same questions were asked but by different supervisors. Was informed about the results several days later.

    Interview Questions

    Canvasser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amnesty International (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual and unintimidating. The first part was done as a group interview and then afterward each interviewee was called in individually. The questions were very straightforward.

    It was clear that the interviewer was passionate about what Amnesty International stands for. If you are applying for this job, you should show a genuine interest in human rights, as this was a main focus in the interview.

    It seemed as though everyone was told whether they got an offer on the spot in their individual interview.
