    Development Coordinator, Logistics Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society (Atlanta, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    We had a 5:00 p.m. phone interview scheduled and at 5:15 p.m. she texted me to cancel the interview and thanked me for considering the position. Then she added that she hoped I would have a great rest of the week. I guess what employees say about the organization is true. What a waste of rescheduling my day for her.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society (San Antonio, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviews. First with Development Manager then panel interview with office. Very precise and quick turn around. First interview was layed back and turned into casual conversation. The second interview was a little more intense because one of the panelist was a little intense.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

    Interview

    This process required EIGHT interviews over 2 months. The CEO position could not have been vetted with this much effort. This should have been a clear signal on what a bureaucratic organization this is.

    What negotiation?? Take it or leave it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society in December 2014.

    Interview

    After turning in my resume, cover letter, and references I got a response within two days or so. They scheduled a phone interview with me that took about 30 minutes, said it was going to be a simple conversation but ended up being more like a real interview. Regardless, not that difficult. I was asked basic behavioral questions such as "tell me about how you work with a team and a time when your team failed.." Asked what I wanted out of the internship and what I thought I would bring to the team. Lady was very nice and friendly, passionate about her job. Next day was emailed to set up an interview which was a week later. In person was much easier, just asked about what I looked for in a team, what I looked for in a leader, and I was asked about a time I had to solve a difficult problem. Everyone seemed very excited about the organization and their work, and emphasized how fun and rewarding the work is. Got called the next day and was offered the internship.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on their website, and was contacted via email by the director about two weeks later to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was mostly informal, and very pleasant. They were supposed to email me later that day to set up the in person interview, but after two days, I had to follow-up with a "thank you" and "did I miss something?" That day they replied with a meeting time for the following week to interview in person. The HR Director and Director of Community Relations for this region were in the office for the interview, and the Director's supervisor and a peer (someone doing this job) from another region were on the conference call.

    I was asked to prepare a 3-5 minute recruitment presentation (no visuals required) for the group prior to the interview. It could be over my current organization or cover the MS Society.

    Interview Questions

    Communications Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at National Multiple Sclerosis Society (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    The HR manager contacted me for a phone interview. I told her I lived out of the country, and the first question she asked me was, "Do you expect us to relocate you? Because we don't do that." Kind of a weird start to an interview if you ask me. She then went on to ask about 10 behavioral questions, such as "How do you like to communicate with your manager?" "What is your presentation style?" "Tell me about a time when you didn't communicate well." "What types of media database systems have you used?" "Tell me about a piece you wrote that persuaded someone." "How do you prioritize?"

    Basically they were weeding people out, but I wasn't asked at all about my previous experience or what direct skills I could bring to the position.
