    Event Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    An assistant reached out regarding my application, set up a phone screen for later that day and sent a calendar invite to confirm. The CEO, Elaine, of the Philadelphia branch was supposed to call me for the interview. She did call...over two hours early. No apology, no explanation for the early call, not even an acknowledgment that the interview was happening WAY early. I was completely caught off guard and found myself apologizing for her error. Interview went well but when I emailed to follow up a week later I received a very short email back (in all caps, so it felt like she was screaming at me) that she had "made a choice" already and that was it. Overall, an INCREDIBLY unprofessional experience and I'm pretty relieved I didn't get the job. Still have no idea why Elaine called 2 hours early as we were in the same time zone and had a confirmed calendar reminder with the correct time.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Dallas, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I originally applied online for a part time position, but since I was a student and was only going to be working during the summer, the executive director emailed me back and said I should interview for an internship with the company for the summer. We set up a quick phone call discussing my background and my interest in the company. 2 days later she sent me an offer via email and asked me to sign a contract.

    Development Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online. I heard back within a week for a phone interview. She basically acted like I was one of thousands to be chosen,which strike me as odd. The woman who called me (the volunteer coordinator) seemed to only take about how great the "culture" was, and how everyone was a team. I tend to be a bit shy on a phone, and she basically called me quiet. I don't see this as a flaw. But, for some reason this got on her nerves. Yeah, not ever giving to this organization again.

    Web Designer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Dallas, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I met with the hiring manager and his team. Two of the four people were on the phone. One of those people was looking at my current employer's job postings during then interview and asked why I didn't apply for the Developer position there. I thought that was highly inappropriate. The other person on the phone had an accent that I could not understand. I asked her to repeat her question but still did not understand her.

    I knew from the questions they were asking me, that I was not the right person for the job. The job they were interviewing me for was not the job I applied for. My resume is very clear about my experience so I'm not sure why they interviewed me.

    While, the hiring Manager and his boss were very nice, I was not the right fit for their position. When I told them this during the interview, they talked about looking at the whole package. A word of advice, when an applicant tells you she doesn't have the experience you are looking for, believe her. Oh, and if you are going to have people calling in for the interview, you should probably ask them the to focus on the interview and not be looking at and asking about another company's job posting during the interview. That was just tacky.

    Probably the worst interview I have ever had. Definitely turned me off of working for them in any capacity.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the difference between html and html5. Other questions I could not understand because of heavy and accent. No one in the room offered to repeat the question for me. Really trying to block it out because it was the worst interview I have ever had.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure in January 2016.

    Interview

    Great, I enjoyed the interview. Great team, location. Unfortunately the affiliates are limited by fund raising to drive salaries and that disparately contrasts HQ salaries. Event driven to cover bottom line, that concerned me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Two phone interviews- the first very generic with the recruiter and the second with the hiring manager- more specific about job experience. Then panel interview with entire team. I could tell the questions were straight from HR.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Dallas, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Sent my resume via online application, got a call from recruiter, and then talked to hiring manager. Hiring manager was inexperienced in asking thoughtful, interviewer questions. A little frustrating because the individual talked mostly about their role in the organization and how they work, etc. Very scattered conversation that lasted too long.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Susan G. Komen for the Cure in June 2011.

    Interview

    Strange process with Komen. I was called by HR for the standard "why do you want to work here" questions, then had a 1:1 phone interview with the supervisor. That went well, and I was flown in for interviews with the whole team, which took 1 business day. I was told by the supervisor's boss that I should start the on-board training on a certain day. After I was flown back home, I was requested to have more interviews via Skype with tangental team members, and then nothing. I tried to call/email to see what happened, even for just development purposes, but never heard from them again.
