    District Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America.

    Interview

    comfortable phone interview, very pleasant and then a face to face in office.
    Meeting with multiple people in a three step process. The envirornment was exciting and energetic and seemed to be at that level until the discussion of salary and then it became sort of somber and not as much energy, but the promise for quick growth made it more comfortable to discuss.

    Receptionist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America (East Providence, RI) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to come in for a face-to-face with three people. I arrived at the front desk and rang a bell to have someone come out to greet me. After telling them why I was there, she went into a room behind the reception desk that had multiple offices surrounding it. Suddenly, two of the people who would interview me appeared in the doorway of their offices. They started speaking loudly about going out socially the night before. I heard things like, "Were trying to get me drunk last night?", "You have two hands, might as well have a drink in each of them.", "Oh, you have interviews this week, that's why you're stressed out (then laughed)."

    Knowing someone is sitting right outside listening, why would you have a discussion like that? Then after a few minutes the three people who were going to interview me came out and escorted me into the conference room. I found it off-putting that while I would answer their questions, they would look out the window or elsewhere. It was as if they didn't care what I had to say and just wanted to hurry up and move on. After answering a barrage of the usual questions (Name a time when you had to re-prioritize your work, etc.), I asked about the position and why the previous person left. The head interviewer got defensive and basically said the person left to go elsewhere and how they don't like having to deal with hiring new people because they're too busy to do that. You could have fooled me by what transpired while I was sitting in the waiting area. Then he finally told me about the job, which by his description was not as involved or interesting as what was posted online. He said it would be another week before they would finish the first round of interviews before choosing who they wanted to bring back for a second round.

    I usually send an email after an interview, as is customary when you’re interested in a position. Considering how the people behaved and how low the salary was, I didn’t bother. I was contacted over a week later with a “sorry you didn’t get selected to come back” email. Trust me, I didn’t lose any sleep or shed any tears over it.

    This was the first interview. 20 minutes were scheduled and the hiring manager kept to the schedule. Even though it was short, it was productive, and I hope to receive a call for a second interview.

    Multiple Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America in September 2016.

    Interview

    Been through multiple interviews wanting to advance in the company. Haven't accepted any offers due to very low pay and having to move across the company.

    For Supply Group it's very old school. You find a posting online and send a resume. That's it. Then a territory manager or another team lead (if it's a corporate job), or a store manager if it's a part-time store job will call you. Basic personality interview and don't really ask anything about the job you applied for.. a few days later the boss of who ever interviewed you will likely interview you again, same personality style questions.. a few days after that the original person will call with an offer.. you can't negotiate, it's a take it or leave it offer. You normally have to relocate and they will help you with a uHaul but that's about it
