    Strategic Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Freeport, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Girl Scouts USA (Freeport, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Made it to an initial phone interview. Very positive. Was told they would be in touch but never heard a word even after attempts to contact them. On the slightly positive side was flexible in placement in other open positions.

    Interview

    Applied for position online and heard from them within a week. First interview was several weeks out. Interviewed face to face with 2 directors. Both very friendly but interview was quite intense. They said a decision would be made within the month and I heard less than a week later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Girl Scouts USA.

    Interview

    This was definitely the most unprofessional experience I've ever had interviewing with a company. After each interview, it took them weeks to let me know if I've made it to the next part of the process. I first had a phone interview with the Director (sometime in March), then an in-person interview, then another phone interview (with another Director who called me at 8pm one night) and then a month later, I was emailed (out of the blue) to do a Skype interview the same exact day. I told her it was a little short notice because of my work schedule and she told me she would contact me in a few weeks after her PTO. This was May 19th. Almost a month later (June 22nd), I have yet to hear from her. Typical. I have pretty much given up on this position and hate that I wasted my time interviewing with them.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a GS representative. She did a basic phone interview with me (which I was completely unprepared for). She told me that she would forward my information to the hiring manager. About two weeks later I was called in for an interview. This took place at the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio location in Blue Ash. Two women interviewed me, and it was very relaxed. The entire interview took about an hour. One day later, I was invited to come in for a second interview. This time I had to give a mock presentation to the two initial interviewers, and present information that would make people want to volunteer for GS.

    Product Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Girl Scouts USA (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    I was really excited to apply with Girl Scouts as I have always admired the organization's mission. I applied online from their website to a third party company. I received a phone message from the third party company that said they had a few questions for me, returned call but did not hear back from them. I was then called the following week by GS and was asked in for a preliminary interview with another Program Manager. The interviewer was really friendly in a more casual interview. I was told I'd be asked in for a second interview for sure when the Product Program Director would be back in the office. (I had not asked about salary in the first interview since it would seem that the interviewer would be an equal to the position I was pursuing and it was just the first interview.) The following week, the third party company called me and was unaware that I had already been interviewed. They wanted to follow up with me and let me know the salary range and was told the salary range would be $32-$42K. Unfortunately this was significantly less than what I was already making and was hoping to make in my next position. The third party said they would ask GS if the salary would be negotiable and call me back. Later that same day, the Director called me for the second interview with her and the CEO. Apparently, the third party had not been in touch with her to let her know my request to negotiate. She mentioned that unfortunately as a non-profit, that is the typical range for manager level positions (at least in GS). The range I was looking for was more at the Director level and above; however, most of the current directors had been in their positions for a while. That is one thing that I noticed when I researched current employees on LinkedIn. . . they had all been there for a while. Which in my mind would seem as if it would be a great place to work if people stayed, they must really enjoy their job. I was really sad to turn down the second interview. The Director was very nice and understood, she wished me luck on my job search.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Girl Scouts USA in May 2016.

    Interview

    The initial phone call included questions about my prior experiences and how they fell in comparison to the job I was seeking. I was asked to give some background on myself. The next step was a face to face interview with who would be my immediate supervisor, the questions mirrored my initial phone interview. The third step was a face to face with the other two employees who serve in the same capacity. I listened mostly during this step and was given more knowledge on their day to day experiences. About a week later I followed up and was told that the process was coming to a close and that a decision would be made between the top two candidates and either way I would receive an update regardless of whether I was to get an offer or not.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you consider yourself a detailed person or a big picture person?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I chose to accept the position because it is a great company to work for.I would recommend discussing any prepaid or pre-planned vacation time you have, in case you may lose money.
