Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lifeway Christian Resources

Interview

The process was streamlined and very productive. There were panel interviews over zoom to help narrow down the amount of interviews which was much appreciated. This experience was much more efficient than most companies I’ve interviewed with.

Interview Questions
  • They asked about their values and what I thought of those said values.

I applied online. The process took 5 months. I interviewed at Lifeway Christian Resources in Mar 2022

Interview

My experience with the interview process was extremely drawn out with very sporadic communication. After applying, I received a text message 4 weeks later followed by an email from the HR recruiter, requesting I provide availability for a phone screening. The phone screening was high level, but I was given more details around the general team and needs of the role. I did thoroughly enjoy the screening call and speaking with the HR recruiter. The questions asked were in large part, faith based. After the initial screening, I was immediately invited to meet with two individuals in senior level roles on the broader team. This was a video call which involved more behavioral based questions. I was told in the initial phone screening, that because of rapid growth that the interview process could take a bit longer than average. And I should mention that the recruiter communicated primarily through texting. After the panel video call with the two senior leaders, a few weeks went by with no update. So I followed up with the recruiter to inquire about status and potential next steps. I did not receive an immediate reply. A few more weeks passed and I received a text message from the recruiter asking my availability to meet with the executive of the team that same week. I altered my schedule to accommodate, since I was interested in the role and the company at that time. In meeting with the executive, there seemed to have been mutual interest. But since that call, I have not received any updates and not even a cold, automated rejection email. Given the amount of time invested in the process and speaking with multiple people on the team, I would expect more of any professional organization and even more from a Christian organization. While everyone I spoke with was nice, this does not excuse the unkind act of being lax in communication and devaluing a candidate's time. And I can appreciate that their HR team is under-resourced to handle the rapid growth; however extended interview processes that far exceed the norm (approximately 4 months-6 months), along with inconsistent to no communication at all is extremely bad practice. Shame on Lifeway for allowing any bad practice or process like this to stand.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time when you had to manage a difficult employee? How did you handle the situation?

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lifeway Christian Resources in Jun 2021

Interview

I had an overall good experience with Lifeway during the interview process although I ultimately was not offered the job. The process included an initial phone interview, an interview with the team manager followed by a simple coding challenge. Next, I was invited to meet the entire team, which consisted of 4 people total. Lastly, I was invited to interview with the director of IT. I wish the process had not taken as much time as it did. It was over a month of multiple interviews, which was longer than I would have liked. The teams members were all very friendly. The HR representative was very responsive and supportive. So overall, I have no hard feelings toward the company. In the end, they chose to bring in a candidate who had previously worked with one of the team members.

Great overall interview process. It was conversational and professional. The manager made me feel welcome and at ease throughout the entire process. I'd highly recommend other than the fact all of their stores are now closed.

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Lifeway Christian Resources (Nashville, TN)

Interview

The first interview was a very chill meet and greet with the manager and direct report. The next was with the Director of the department and the manager to go over more details about my work history and prepare for the final interview with the Vice President. I thought it was very cool that the VP took time to meet with each candidate as it showed a real level of responsibility for the culture of the company.

Interview Questions
  • They want you to know the mission statement by memory and be about their company goals.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lifeway Christian Resources (Nashville, TN)

Interview

I had two interviews, one via phone with HR and then a video interview with three employees the following week. All of the interviewers were kind and fun to talk with. I believe the selection process has not ended, so I have not yet heard back. However, everyone I spoke with assured me that they don't like to leave people hanging and would get in touch with me either way.
