    Repair Foreman Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oakland, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Oakland, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed at the Oakland office. It's a little difficult to find if you have never been their so give yourself a little time. It's actually in the beautiful church you'll see on the corner.

    First I had a phone conversation with HR. I was told she would forward my resume to the appropriate place and she did! I revived a phone interview later in the week. After the phone interview I was called and asked to come in for a face 2 face a few days later.

    At the interview, I met with three different people. The first person I met be my direct supervisor then the next two were his supervisors. Originally I was to also interview with someone involved in the hiring process but they weren't available that day. Things happen, I just really appreciate their transparency.

    However all three people I met with would be wonderfull to work, likeminded intelligent and professional.

    After the end of the rather thorough three hour interview I felt as if my experience was perfect and that I would make a great member of the team. I definitely impressed mysel!

    At the end of the interview my potential supervisor was instructed to take me to meet the HR rep. I felt as if this was a good sign however unfortunately I wasn't told when or if I would be notified of the decision. I maybe should have been direct. I am currently mulling over and delaying as best I can a job opportunity that is far more money but doesn't have what Habitat has.

    The people and the passion to do what I know I was meant to do.

    Well we'll see. Good luck

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity.

    Interview

    Long interview process, hard to get the manager on the phone after the call you and leave a message. Clearly didn't care about the candidate experience because they could never confirm an interview and expected you as the interviewee to just be ok with it. Sorry we're just busy right now was the answer.

    Family Services Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Raleigh, NC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Straight-forward interview where they went over the position and learned about why I was interested/what made me qualified. Having experience in community development and speaking Spanish were pluses for working in Family Services. I think it also helped that I have volunteered with Habitat in the past and had some personal connections.
