    Special Events Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Kidney Foundation (Washington, DC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online via an online job data base. I was emailed back soon to meet in person at their office in Chevy Chase. The interview was professional but not intimidating. I sat one on one and was asked questions about myself and my strengths. You do not need to know about kidney disease to get the job.

    Special Events Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Kidney Foundation (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Submitted resume online. Called for very brief phone screening. On-site interview with my future Event Manager (immediate supervisor). All of it was appropriately professional but relaxed. I actually enjoyed it, but I usually enjoy interviews. This really was a fun one, though. The staff in place, and thus also my eventual supervisor who conducted the interview, are all fun, interesting, happy people--it is reflected in the way they interact with and interview you. I left the interview kind of wanting to be her friend. I was her friend by the time the internship ended.

    Development Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at National Kidney Foundation (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Very easy interview. 2 rounds: 1st round with HR (obvious questions) & boss (simple conversation). 2nd round: Entire team; more detail on specific skills. I did have to follow up a few times after my first interview.

    Overall a simple process. Was offered a standard salary of 40k & benefits. Would strongly reconsider this position to prospects when considering a development coordinator position with Greater NY.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your strengths/weaknesses; What's your greatest achievement; etc...   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. They provide a standard salary to all. Note: Promotions happen quickly, but little salary is added.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at National Kidney Foundation (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Asked me about my schooling, previous jobs, what I hoped to do in the future, etc. Basically your typical interview- the internship is and will be unpaid but I liked the company a lot so I applied. They rely on their employees a lot in order to organize the events like the 5K run/walk and NKF gala they set up in March. There is a heavy emphasis on marketing for the internship, but they said that any business major can be used and trained.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Kidney Foundation in April 2015.

    Interview

    There was one phone interview followed by an in-person interview. They were very good about getting back to me in a timely manner with their decision. The in-person interview was easier than the first phone interview because they asked situational questions.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked general questions like "why do you feel this is a good position for you" and they gave situations and asked how you would respond to them.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Kidney Foundation (Sherman Oaks, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    One interview on phone with HR person-went well. She asked good questions. Second phone interview with two people in the national office. Thought it went well too. They seemed interested as my experience fit this job description perfectly. Had done a similar job before. Then interviewed in person in Sherman Oaks office. Thought that one also went well. There were hints as to how much I needed to give my job.... They were going to wrap up this up quickly... I sent a thank you email ...Then silence until I emailed the HR person days later to find out and was told via email the job was given to someone else who best fit the qualifications. Good luck! Not an easy task and I did fit the qualifications, maybe overqualified.
    It would be nice to be treated with decency and get back to the person.
