    Online Strategy Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Human Rights Campaign (Washington, DC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process first involved a phone screening followed by an in-person interview. The in-person interview lasted over two hours with four different people. While two hour interviews are never fun, this one flew by in the best way. The staff was extremely nice and I was looking forward to working with them. I could've spoke with them for hours - about the mission, about progressive policy, etc. I was told to complete a writing assignment and was given a little less than a week to complete it and had fun with it. We were given some creative freedom while staying within HRC's voice. I submitted the writing assignment on the due date and was never contacted again. I never received a confirmation email that it was received, which was deeply disappointing considering I thought we were a good fit for each other; not to mention all the effort that went into it.

    The interview process was simple and very easy. The entire process took under a week from the time I interviewed until the time I was offered a position, which was an employee referral.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Human Rights Campaign (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about a month later in an initial phone screen from the hiring manager with no advance warning. After the screen, an in-person interview occurred two weeks later with four people in the department over the course of several hours.

    I was brought back a month and a half later for another in-person interview with two different people in the department, and also took a skills test. A month after that, I received a phone call from human resources saying that they were going to look for other candidates.

    Two months after that, the hiring manager called me again and asked if I was still interested in the position. I went in several days later for another in-person interview, this time with three people from the department. At the end of the interview process, they offered me the position and expected me to accept immediately without negotiating or asking HR questions, and only offered me 24 hours to make a decision after I requested additional time.

    Direct Response Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Human Rights Campaign (Washington, DC) in August 2013.

    Interview

    The application and interview process seemed disorganized. Right out of the gate, while the company has its applicants send their initial application online, upon being invited for an interview, applicants are asked to complete and submit a paper application that covers the same information as the online application, which seemed like a waste of time. After all, if the online application system works as expected, there should be no reason to do the application twice.

    The interview itself was two stages, and it lasted an hour. The first stage was with a person from human resources, who asked more generalized personality and experience-related questions. The second stage was with the hiring manager for the position and a person who would work closely with the position being hired. A number of questions overlapped between HR and the hiring manager. At the end of the interview, the hiring manager indicated that they would be in contact before a certain date.

    After waiting out the period that the hiring manager had specified, I called the HR person back. No response. When I called the hiring manager, I was told that they needed another week. After that week, calls to both the HR person and the hiring manager went unanswered, and messages left were not returned. Following another week, I received a response from the automated application system that indicated that I was no longer being considered for the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Human Rights Campaign (Washington, DC) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was emailed about a phone interview to take place a week later. It was just a simple phone interview with a very nice interviewer. She just wanted to see why I was interested in the organization and to make sure that I understood the nature of the position. It took no more than 15 minutes.

    I would advise candidates to have a clear explanation for why they're interested in the position and to be flexible with what the nature of the internship will be.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Human Rights Campaign (Washington, DC) in October 2011.

    Interview

    After not responding to an application for another (lower) position, I received a call to interview for the position of Manager. The atmosphere was pleasant and interviewers amicable. The questions were versions of the standards but tweaked to convey the requisite passion involved in working for a civil rights organization. Be professional but affable.
