    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America (Doylestown, PA) in May 2015.

    The interview was incredibly informal. I met with the Scout executive (council's CEO) individually. I was offered the job on the spot. Afterwards, there was a ton of paperwork to complete, including an application for a professional commission that needed to be processed by the national service center, but overall was a smooth interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    HORRIBLE!! DO NOT INTERVIEW WITH THIS COMPANY.. After four seperate interviews and a background check......only to be told they are going with someone else via US MAIL!!! Spent hours of time on a field interview only to not be given the position. What a waist of time. I believe it is racial discrimination as I am a Black male with a college degree in St.Loui MO.

    District Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boy Scouts of America (Salt Lake City, UT) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I spent almost 3 years trying to get a position as a district executive. The BSA generally hires people before an ad is ever posted online of to their site, so it is key to be proactive. They do a lot of internal hiring and as in most cases now, it is not what you know, it is who you know and who knows you. I applied to a total of 4 different councils before I received an offer. I applied online to three of the councils and nothing came from that. I did receive a phone interview from the Las Vegas council. I decided one day to do some networking and dropped off my resume to a council office and asked the secretary who a point of contact would be. From there I called and spoke with that individual a number of times about a position that they had opening up after about 3 weeks I was informed that they hired someone else from another state to fill the position. From there I did the same thing with another council and after a few emails and a phone call I received an opportunity to interview. A couple of days after the interview I was asked to come in for another interview. That time I meet with 3 senior management professionals and a couple of days later was offered a position.
