    Marketing and Communications Associate (Temporary) Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Room to Read (San Francisco, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process went smoothly. I applied and was emailed about a phone interview a little over a week later. I had a phone interview with their HR associate less than a week later afterwards was sent an email the next day asking to come in for an in-person interview the following week. During the in-person interview I was given a writing test which was not difficult because they gave you resources to use. I then met with two members of the development team who were very nice and easy to talk to. They asked me better general questions and after about 30 minutes we were done. I found out 5 days later that I was not getting the job.

    Development Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Room to Read (San Francisco, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is very thorough. I interviewed with 5 people for 4 hours total (including the first screening call). That being said, it is still relatively casual and many interviews involve a casual coffee interview to see if you're a good cultural fit for the organization. Being a culture fit on the development, PDTA, and program operations teams is key. There is less of a focus on culture fit on the finance and legal team.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Room to Read (San Francisco, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was very standard. First, they scheduled a 30 minute phone call where they asked general questions around my interest and skill level. Next, I was called in to do in-person interviews with two employees. The office was very large and spacious and employees were very friendly. I met with each employee individually in a very small room. I was asked to bring marketing samples. Afterwards, they took quite awhile to get back to me. Then I got a very standard email back mentioning I didn't get the position.
