    Reproductive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waukesha, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Waukesha, WI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The in person interview was scenario type interview questions, like- "if this situation were to happen give me a real life example from your own experience at a job and give me the solution". There were 6 questions. It took the manager two weeks to get back to me offering me the position. She interviewed 4 girls and she said the background checks take a while to process. I had 48 hours to take my pre employment screening which consisted of a TB test and a urinalysis drug screen. The drug screen is not instant they send it to a lab. That took an additional 4 days to get back to me. I dont start training for another month which is fine in my situation. The only complaint is how long it has taken its just given me some anxiety but everything went smoothly and im looking forward to start

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back via email within a week or two. I set up a phone call with one of the "talent acquisition specialists" over email. Four days later, she called for the phone interview which was more of a conversation about my experiences. I had a hard time gauging how the interview went because I was very nervous. They did not contact me after the phone interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Very laid back process. I met with the team first and they went over their roles and what the organization means to them. They simply asked me about my personality and what do I think about PPFA. I met with HR afterwards and she asked more questions regarding my experience and why do I want to work here.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    Started normal with HR call but the woman that did the prescreen had no clue what she was talking about. Asking me medical questions/clinic related for an office/development role. I asked her if this job requires time working in the clinic and if so, I would pass now. Finally, two weeks later I got with the head of development. Another odd, almost fake interview. Was told this job can't seem to keep anyone but they'd love to hire me. Bizarre. I passed and later learned the person who took the role left 6 months later.
