    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted a week later for a phone interview. Phone interview consisted of questions about previous work experience, willingness to participate in educational activities and workshops outside of construction work. I was asked mainly about previous leadership and volunteer management experience. Half of the interview contained questions about me and the other half was informational about the position and company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. I was contacted for an interview and within a week, I had Skyped with two employees and was offered the position. This was several months after applying though. The Skype interview was casual and more conversational. They were very friendly and the questions were relatively predictable.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied a week ago and received a phone call from the hiring department. She was very nice and wanted to go over a few questions with me. The phone interview was formal with a casual tone. I was asked about my abilities, experience, and what I would be expected to add to the organization. From there we went over my salary expectations, and benefits package. We went over my availability and am expected to hear from them in the next few days about a possible second interview, in person, with the youth departments hiring person.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a Volunteer Coordinator position. Went right to an in-person interview without conducting a phone interview. The staff seemed competent and friendly - low pressure. They ended up hiring internally so it seemed a bit like they were interviewing a few people to go through the motions. The job sounded like it was primarily paperwork/data entry focused due to their high volume of volunteers. I was more interested in the interaction aspect.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked the usual - How have you handled a difficult situation with a volunteer, What are you most/least excited about, what motivates you...no curveballs.   Answer Question

    Senior Specialist, Knowledge Sharing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Habitat for Humanity (Atlanta, GA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is very slow going. In the company's defense, the HR process involves upper level management, including the CEO, reviewing every candidate for every position. In some ways that is nice that everyone is involved in hiring, but it does slow the hiring process down very much.

    I interviewed with HR for a position in April by phone, followed by another phone interview with the hiring manager in May. I was told it would take a couple of months before I would hear back. Finally, I was contacted in late July to interview in person in August. Once I interviewed in person, it took another 6 weeks for an offer to be made.

    I understand that my interview process took slightly longer than others, but don't be surprised if interviews take months to completed. At least the HR team usually informs you the steps along the way so you are not caught off guard.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were pretty typical of any interview. The thing they seemed to focus on for me was my willingness to learn new technologies and how the position would challenge me or help me grow professionally.   Answer Question
