    Environment America Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Environment America (Washington, DC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty fast. I applied online and received an email the next day requesting a phone interview with a link to the schedule. The phone interview was standard, mostly informational, but not with someone from EA but rather one of the PIRGS (which is understandable because they are the same umbrella organization). Interview went well, and I heard back a week or so later requesting a more formal skype interview. I scheduled a time but never received the skype name of the woman who was going to contact me. so right before the interview I called HR 4 times and no answer, and then 5 minutes past our scheduled time she skyped me. Interview went well, standard questions, very similar to the phone interview

    Fellow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Environment America (Boston, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Two rounds:

    First ( in person) is very easy, asking you a few questions about why you care about the environment and what experience if any you have.

    The second interview was done through Skype, and they want to know more specifics about your experience and your availability. You can tell they have lots of interviews because it goes by very quickly and the interviewer is not that engaged.

    What was most annoying was scheduling the second interview: after telling me I had made it to the second round, they left my emails unanswered for weeks before getting back to me with a specific interview time

    Interview Questions

    • If you were to pursue any specific environmental campaign, what cause would it be focused on?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Environment America (Cambridge, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at an infosession at my university and she offered me an interview after it was done, telling me to submit a formal application on the website to get me in the system. We scheduled an interview the next day - it lasted about half an hour. She said that as follow-up, I should complete an online questionnaire and anticipate being invited to their offices the following weekend. I submitted the questionnaire, then waited but never received an invitation or rejection. More than a month later, I received a rejection email.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Environment America (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Disorganised hiring process. After the initial phone screening I was informed that I would be contacted by a campaign director for a second interview. He missed our initial interview date and had to postpone the next one. Really disorganised and gave a terrible feeling about this organisation.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Environment America in July 2016.

    Interview

    Wasn't super impressed with the interview process. Phone call interviews can be awkward in general, but the quality of this call was so bad I had to turn the volume up all the way on my phone and strain to hear and understand what the interviewer was asking me.
