    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

    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview

    Received a call to come in for an interview. The interview was with two of the center managers with PPMW. Then I had the opportunity to be interviewed by staff members who i'd directly be working with as well. Which was very nice, and eased my mind.

    Reproductive Assistant Interview

    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.
