    Community Outreach Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Canton, OH
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Canton, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed within a couple of days to go in for an interview the next week. The interview was very informal. Two girls interviewed me on a set of couches in a large, shared office. They didn't ask me any questions that were difficult to answer.

    Interview Questions

    • The girls who interviewed me did not seem to have a list of questions. They mostly talked about Habitat for Humanity and what the person hired would do in this particular role, and then would just ask me something like, "What do you think about doing that?" or "How would you feel about ___?" There were not any difficult questions, and I did not have many opportunities to speak, as most of the time was spent with the two girls explaining things that I had already read about on the website and in the job description.

      I had read about other interviews on Glassdoor and felt what was said about interviewing for Habitat was pretty accurate to my experience.   Answer Question

    Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Orlando, FL) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed by members of the Board of Directors. They were more concerned about my experience and did not do a great job of explain the role and job description. Only later was this explained by the fact that the B.O.D. was really not involved in the day to day of the affiliate. As such the affiliate was in disarray but this only became evident after being hired.

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Atlanta, GA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and immediately was called and had a phone interview with a member of HR. Basic questions (why do you want this job? what are you doing now?) Was called back days later and asked to come in for a face-to-face interview with three different attorneys. I thought the interviews went quite well, and was in the main office for over three hours. I followed up with the HR contact every other week for about a month and a half. Was given cursory responses. After about three months (and me finally just giving up on the job) I was told the company had decided not to hire anyone for the position. I guess business is business but it would have been nice to have been at least given a "thank you for your time and interest."

    Operations Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Austin, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    We went and had coffee, discussed the role and whether or not I was a fit for it. It was determined that I was and now I sit here at my desk typing this. I really don't have much to say but I have to hit a 30 word min. It was very informal, as are most interviews in real estate development.

    Web Content Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    The interview process took a while. I applied for the job online and then didn't hear back from anyone for a couple of months. After that, though, things moved pretty quickly. I interviewed with 5 people, I think -- the communications director, a few editors, and the web developers.

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate, but they said my number wasn't in the budget. For a nonprofit organization, though, they paid a competitive salary.
