    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Special Olympics.

    Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Special Olympics.

    Interview

    Originally, I found the posting on LinkedIn for Special Olympics Illinois and did that simple application process. After that, I had a quick, ten minute phone interview. In that interview, they were very straight forward. The HR manager (conducting that interview) told me that they narrowed it down from 100+ to 20 for a phone interview, and were narrowing it down again (I think about 8) for an in person interview. I was emailed again to schedule that interview, which was your basic, multi-person interview. I spoke conversationally with a 3-person board regarding traditional interview questions. They explained in that interview that, if necessary, they would ask 2-3 people in for a third interview, and ask them to prepare some projects. Again, I was asked for this interview, asking to prepare a couple projects. I came in again (one hour, one way) and presented my work, receiving positive feedback. This resulted in more questions regarding my work style. They said that they would be getting back to everyone shortly, regardless of the outcome. It has been over a month and a half, and I have yet to hear.

    Internal Communications Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Special Olympics (Washington, DC) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty straight forward but there were a lot of interviews. I had a phone interview, then was invited into the office for a series of individual interviews plus a group interview, then an HR interview. A week or so later I was asked to come in again for an interview with someone who was unavailable the first time I was in the office. Everyone I met was very friendly and most of the interviews were designed like get to know you conversations rather than a rigid, formal interview. It was one of the better interview processes I've participated in even though I didn't end up being offered the job.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were mostly conversational and creative. One of the panelists asked my favorite sports team. I was also asked about specific international experience I had and how that relates to Special Olympics.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Special Olympics.

    Interview

    easy, just a quick check to see you aren't brain dead. Mostly just asked what my major was and where I wanted to go in the future. Also made sure I had an interest in the organization. I feel like they do most of the screening based off of the initial resume you send in.
