    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Salvation Army International (Cleveland, OH) in June 2014.

    Interview

    At first I met with the general manger for him to give me the ok. Then I met with the department supervisor (with the gm present). The whole experience was very pleasant and laid-back, as are most of the people who work there.

    Interview Questions

    • They really wanted to know what my motivation was for wanting to work at the Salvation Army. There were no real direct questions asked (not treated like I was being interrogated). After a 30 minute chat, they said they would contact me to let me know. They called me the next day to inform me that I was hired.   1 Answer

    Client Services Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Salvation Army International (Melbourne (Australia)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Panel of 3, mixed gender. Each member took times in asking questions. The interview took place on the premises. I don't think that the process illicited enough of the information that I would have wanted in their place. Culture is very important to this network and unless you are of a particular bent you will not last or enjoy your time there as the network doesn't like change and finds it difficult to accept new ideas.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no room to negotiate, which ended up in a very poor package being negotiated.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salvation Army International (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I initially completed an application form for a role with a charity
    Was interviewed initially by a recruitment agency and informed which charity I would be working for and then completed a written assignment.
    I then had a follow up interview day at the location where I would be working which included a tour of the building, meeting staff members and residents. I then had an interview with residents and an interview with a panel from management. The process was a relaxed one and I felt able to express myself freely.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Salvation Army International (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    This was with the Ontario (Canada) Central East Division.

    The interviewer was so rude and unprofessional that I complained to the head of the organization. Took two emails to get a reply, which said:

    1) The interviewer doesn’t think their behaviour was bad. (So? That doesn’t mean it wasn’t bad. And I didn’t ask what they think, I’m telling you what **I** think.)

    2) We usually do interviews with a panel but this time there were too many applicants for that. (That makes no sense. You should always have a proper interviewing process, and there is no excuse for rudeness in any recruiting process.)

    3) We’re sorry and we’ll try to do better from now on. (Not holding my breath for that one.)

    Utterly clueless. But perhaps not surprising given the scandals involving the organization worldwide. Avoid this organization at all costs.

    Digital Media Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salvation Army International (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the assistant in Toronto 3 weeks after submitting my application. The interview itself was short. The marketing coordinator and a lead writer had a list of about 20 questions. They start by letting you know they're a religious organization but don't force you to believe and they discriminate about your beliefs (or non-beliefs).

    Questions were direct and clear about design. The tricky part comes after the "interview", the lead writer offers to walk with you and then she asks personal questions (that of course matter, as it is no longer legally part of the interview): marriage, family future plans, why you are applying,... Watch out for that moment.

    And don't wait for an email rejecting your application. After I walked out I never heard back from them
