    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    Interviewers were very kind and asked me how i would approach various situations as a medical assistant. I did not get the job as I think I was lacking hands on medical experience, but the interview process was very smooth and they even accommodated my interview because i had a conflict.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I interviewed first over the phone with a HR employee,which was pleasant enough. A week or so later I interviewed with two policy staffers. The interview was friendly and an enjoyable conversation. I didn't get the position but I would have preferred if they had sent me a quick courtesy email notifying me that they went with someone else instead of ghosting me.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Telephone, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the telephone with HR. Very informal interview which basically focused on the role of PP and my view on the issues they face. The interviewer was clear about the fact that PP is a non-profit before asking about desired salary. This leads me to believe that they are less concerned about hiring the best candidate and more concerned with hiring the most economical. Big Red Flag!

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had a very short phone interview, and then was brought in for a face to face interview a week later. It was pretty informal, but it was still a tough interview. I think I didn't get the job because I didn't have medical experience, and I was nervous.

    Health Center Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had worked for this company a few years before. The interview process was pretty similar this time around, except the initial response was much faster. I applied online, and received an email invitation for a phone interview about a week later. I ended up playing phone tag with HR for another week, which seemed a little strange since we had scheduled our conversation for a specific date and time. There were two separate days I waited all day for the phone call (scheduled for late morning), finally gave up around 5pm, then ended up with a voicemail from around 7pm. When I finally got a hold of HR, the phone interview was pretty pleasant. It was just re-answering questions from the online application almost verbatim. I was invited for an in-person interview a few days later.
    The face-to-face interview was very intimidating, even though I knew what to expect. First, I spoke one-on-one with the HR director, which was very relaxed and conversational. After that, I was taken to a panel interview with the Regional Director and the managers of all four clinics in the area. There were five people asking me very detailed questions all at once, and no one smiled or laughed at all. One of the questions threw me a bit, and I must have given a weak answer because no one looked at me or showed any interest for the rest of the interview. I instantly felt like I was out of the running, but there was another 30mins of questions after that. I received an automated rejection email a month later, which seemed a little unnecessary. All in all, it was an exhausting and disappointing experience.

    Health Center Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    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.
