    Senior Campaign Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sierra Club (Washington, DC) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I had a first interview with the person that would be my supervisor, then an online group interview with different campaign representatives in different states and then was required to travel to the HQ in DC for an in-person interview.

    I have a lot of respect for Sierra Club's mission but the interviewing process was very disappointing. The communication with the supervisor was very poor, I was asked to travel to DC with less than a week in advance and no flexibility on the day or the time of the interview.

    After the final interview, I never heard back. I had to follow up multiple times to the point of having to reach out to a person above the interviewer to get an answer. More than two months after my interview, I finally learned that I was not chosen. Later I learned that they had already offered the position to another candidate and didn't inform me of their decision.

    I'm not sure how much the HR department is aware of the lack of protocol held by staff leading interview processes.

    My advice: Treat your candidates like human beings, especially if you are a mission-driven organization.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sierra Club (Washington, DC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I did a first round phone interview and then flew to DC for a second round group interview. They never got back to me about whether I got the job, even after 3 emails. No excuse for that. Got reimbursed for the travel though.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sierra Club in February 2018.

    Interview

    Submitted an application and heard back unexpectedly 2-3 weeks later via email. We scheduled a phone interview with the department’s manager for the following week. I thought the phone call went really well, and about a week later, I was invited to do a video interview even though I am located where the HQ is in Oakland.

    The video interview was with the person who interviewed me over the phone, and 4 others in the department. It took about an hour. They told me it would take at least 2 more weeks after before they would have any updates.

    I emailed 2 weeks later, and they revealed to me that in the two weeks I waited to hear back, they chose someone else for the position.

    Media Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sierra Club in June 2008.

    Interview

    The interview had two stages. The first was a panel interview with the supervisor and a member of another department. The second stage was another panel interview with the supervisor, the head of the department and a peer level staff member. The work culture appeared relaxed (staff members dressed casually, the atmosphere was casual).
