    Social Media Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    About a week after applying I was contacted by HR to schedule a phone interview. When he called at the scheduled time, he mentioned that he had forgotten whether it was scheduled for that day or the next. The interview was pleasant, and I was asked to move to step 2/5 of the hiring process, which was a written skills assessment. During the phone interview, the HR rep said that he would e-mail me the assessment by COB that day, but didn't. I e-mailed around 5:00 p.m., and the next late afternoon I heard back from him saying that he'd send the assessment by COB THAT day, but didn't send it until 11 p.m. It was required that the assessment be completed by 8 a.m. the morning after the assessment was delivered, and the HR rep mentioned it would take about 2 hours to complete, which it did—that short time slot to complete the assessment paired with the time commitment was a little aggravating.

    After submitting the assessment, I followed up after not hearing back, and didn't hear back then either. I followed up once more, and even though the HR rep told me they were looking to hire someone by 1/5 (about two weeks following the phone interview), on 1/2 he told me that the hiring manager was out of town and he'd be in touch soon, but he never contacted me again.

    1-2 weeks later I saw the same job re-posted on LinkedIn & Google Jobs.

    Interview Questions

    Outreach Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Buffalo, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. Applied online then received an email (as my phone number was not working for them) asking for a time that would be best to come in for an interview. There was a follow up second interview where a small presentation was required but unfortunately I could not make the job change. I will be looking forward to applying again in the future.

    Interview Questions

    • It was more of a conversation with a lot of questions regarding beliefs on the services planned parenthood offers. They wanted to get a feel for how comfortable I would be in delivering messages about the services they offer.   Answer Question

    Prefer Not to Say Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Washington, DC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a position in the national office in D.C. and heard back about a month later. I completed a 30-minute phone screen with someone from their H.R. department, after which I was selected to complete a skills assessment over the weekend which took a few hours and was fairly in-depth (a written assessment where I had to respond to various scenarios with strategies, ideas etc.) After that, I was contacted to schedule a group Skype-style interview with the department. The interview took about an hour and was enjoyable. That interview was over a month ago, and I have not heard anything since, despite following up. The overall process was pleasant enough, but I would have appreciated a courtesy e-mail notifying me that they filled the position vs. ghosting me out of respect.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Went through 5 interviews. I am not sure what went wrong because I was sure they liked me and I felt very confident. Who wouldn't after interviewing 5 times? I didn't hear anything for a few weeks so I reached out to them to see what the status was. They got back to me a few days later saying they went with someone else but want me to apply to something else because it was such a tough decision. The atmosphere there seemed very laid back and family oriented.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Grand Rapids, MI) in October 2017.

    Interview

    They were very patient when my foster kittens started pouncing on me during my phone interview. I thought they were just calling to ask some basic questions and was a bit surprised when it was a full blown screening interview. So be prepared and make sure you have 30 minutes or so to get through all the questions.
