    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JDRF in February 2017.

    Interview

    Standard interview. HR contacted me first, then hiring manager. Then set up in person with hiring manager, potential coworkers. Then interviewed with C-suite. I had applied for a different position, but was called to interview for what turned out to be a better one. I liked that they did some personality testing, as it means they were looking to be sure their new hires would be a good fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at JDRF (Indianapolis, IN) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Process was good but depends solely on Executive Director of hat chapter. it deosnt seem to have a nationwide process attached to hiring. Along iwth the rest of the foundations problems there is no consistency to this process, or any other except walks. The last interview wasn't an interview at all since the people I met with didn't realize an offer was already extended to me. Awkward.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at JDRF (New York, NY).

    Interview

    When through a 3rd party recruiter. Had an in-person interview.
    1) Meet with HR, and all she convey to me was that she was very busy and pointed to all the resumes scatter on her desk.
    2) Meet with hiring manager and director (via phone-conference).
      - Ask me a several questions of issues that they were facing with salesforce, and ask me to give them detail solutions that doesn't cost them "resources".
      - She got belligerent, and yelled at me after she didn't like my solution. Essentially, want me to work for free on the spot.
      - When I ask more detail about this position, somehow they got caught off guard and seem absolutly clueless of what they are looking for.

    Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at JDRF (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The process consisted of 1 phone interview with the recruiter, followed by 4 interviews (2 phone, 2 in person) with the research staff. The decision to hire came less than 2 weeks after the last interview and the offer came about 1 week later. The interviews were very conversational and laid back.

    Negotiation

    One full day of negotiations. The recruiter was rather aggressive during this process and offered little or no wiggle room for salary.

    What a joke of a process, intimidation is not a great way to find talent, no sane person would want to work for a non-profit that uses these interview techniques. Scaring away talent isn’t a useful tactic. Smh

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at JDRF (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online directly to the JDRF and got a phone call almost immediately. Spent about 40 minutes talking to the recruiter. She set me up with a call with one of the hiring managers. The hiring manager was almost 15 minutes late calling with little apology. That call lasted around an hour. I then received an email from some random company with a link to a personality test – this test was not mentioned in either interview – pretty bad form in my opinion. I spent about 40 minutes completing the test. Followed up with the recruiter and got no response. It’s pretty obvious at this point that I didn’t get the job but they could at the very least have the professional courtesy to let me know. A two line email doesn’t take much effort. So overall I don’t have a good impression and will likely not apply to them again.
