    Site Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Communities In Schools (Atlanta, GA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied by sending my resume to the organization. I got a call about a month later. The interview was slightly intimidating. The first step was to complete a 20 minute writing sample for two scenarios. Then I met with 3 colleges for a panel interview. The questions were straight forward but some of the scenario questions were thrown out and a little difficult.

    Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Communities In Schools (Arlington, VA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    It took 3 months but the communication was consistent. Had to fill out an application the day before I was offered the job, which I found strange. It turned out the HR manager had left recently and the assistant HR manager was doing all of the work. I flew up uncompensated for my third round interview two months after the process began.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Communities In Schools (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The interview didn't feel like an interview, which is great for me because interviews just freak me out. More of a preview of duties you're expected to do if given the chance to intern. I got to intern for a semester and it was truly amazing!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Communities In Schools (Atlanta, GA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    A panel of five individuals who each asked one question. While they appeared to listen to my answers they did not look up. There was only one follow up questions.

    During the writing sample, employees where in the same area talking loudly. I could not concentrate well with the noise. The writing samples were scenario based. There were two questions. What would you do if a student wanted to drop put of school? How would you convince them to change their mind?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Communities In Schools in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. It started out with a writing prompt and being asked to pick a situation and write about I would handle it. Very simple. Then it was a one-on-one interview with basic questions. Easy and to the point. The supervisor was very nice and I got the feeling they genuinely wanted to help children in the community. The salary was very low with next to no opportunity to move up in the organization.
