    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Posse Foundation (Atlanta, GA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was a group interview with about 30 people in a circle. They said it similar to the way they pick the scholars for the program. First, you watch a video about the foundation. Next, they split you in to groups of 4 or 5 and you have exactly 1 minute to answer a question, you must use the entire minute. Lastly, you have a group Q and A.

    Interview

    It was a group interview questions were asked such as explain your college experience, what is your preferred method of communication etc. I felt like the had an idea of who they were going to hire. There were about 30 people in the room and we were broken into teams of 5 and the staff rotated and listened to us answer questions and jotted things down. It felt like a waste of time and Uber.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Posse Foundation (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was a 2 day interview, but in order to get the second interview, participants need to get selected from the first day (which is a group interview). The first day group interview starts off with icebreaker/introduction, then participants get divided into groups of 4. One of the current trainers asks questions and every group member gets an opportunity to answer in their own small group. The current staff walk around and take notes of their observations.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Posse Foundation (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    There were 15 eclectic candidates. We did a quick introduction around the circle, heard from program staff about the program and history, then watched a brief video about The Posse Foundation. Afterwards, we did two group activities: we were in groups of four and had to answer lightening round questions (see below). Then we had to find new groups, and pick a topic from an envelope. Our task was to lead a discussion around the question we picked from the envelope. The discussions were also very fast (just a few minutes). They concluded with taking a handful of questions from the candidates.

    National Training Specialist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Posse Foundation (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process was just as others described here. I found that being relaxed and being myself was the best way to succeed. Those in the room from Posse are not likely interested in your exact response but more so in how you interact with the other people in the room. I was amazed that after the first interview, I could really tell who would make the cut and who wouldn't. I was impressed that the DAP seems effective in that way.

    The second interview was more of what you'd expect, with the opportunity to chat with the director as well as other members of the training specialist teams.

    The third and final interview was an opportunity to design and facilitate a training.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Posse Foundation (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was as many described. There was a large group interview. They are nice about it, and make it more collaborative than competitive but I get the impression they already had their decisions made. As they did no follow up, I felt like it was an unfair use of my time, and they should be more upfront with their candidates.
