    Volunteer Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Aurora, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was initially called and he wanted to do a phone interview. I had time when he called, but that didn't give me any time to prep. I was asked to come in two days late for an interview with the general manager. I got there 10-15 min early (seemed like I was inconveniencing him by being early) we did the interview. And even though I was told and the posting said it was a full time position, the manager said it was part time. He also made me full or the application again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (San Francisco, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screen, and two group panel interviews. While the interviews were straight forward, I knew at the second interview that I didn't have the job and they were going through the process. I only interviewed with co-workers and the supervisor, and for this position I should have interviewed with the leadership team.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity.

    Interview

    I had applied via the career services department at my university, where they did the first round of interviewing. The people who made it to the second round were then interviewed by Habitat for Humanity directors at their offices. They were really good at communicating with me before my interview. When I arrived and got settled into the meeting room, everything went smoothly. They're really nice and willing to answer any of your questions.

    Truck Driver/Donation Pick Up Driver Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Dade City, FL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied at a local job fair. Was given an on the spot interview. The interview was brief and the person interviewing me told me they'd give me a call in a week or so. Two weeks go by and then I'm finally called back and given the first of two interviews. I was asked typical questions about my background and driving record. Told them everything was clean. The person interviewing me seemed impressed and said they'd call me soon about a second interview. Another two weeks go by and I'm called again for the second interview. This time I'm interviewed by a different manager. I'm pretty much asked the same questions all over again. Strangely I'm also asked questions that have absolutely nothing to do with the job I'm applying for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Scattered, lengthy (3+ interviews over a 2+ month period), and deceptive. Managers did not reveal that the organization was having serious senior management troubles that left the NYC office without a CEO for over a year.
