    Social Media Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gaithersburg, MD

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Humane Society of the United States (Gaithersburg, MD) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Was e-mailed for a phone screening within a few days of applying online, and was surprised at how fast the response was. I replied quickly and received a confirmation two days later for a call later in the week. Half an hour into the agreed upon time without getting a call, I sent another e-mail asking to reschedule as they had apparently missed the time to call me. Later that day, I received an apology e-mail asking to reschedule. The screening was typical, and as usual, it was with HR who passes information to the hiring manager. Nearly two weeks later I received an e-mail asking me to come in for an in person interview and offered days/times. I again responded quickly but did not receive confirmation for a couple of days. Upon arriving, the confusion made sense- it seemed that there was a lot of miscommunication going around, including HR notifying me that day that they were still phone screening other candidates. While the people themselves were very nice, I was unimpressed with their process, sadly, because I think the organization does great things. I was turned off from applying for any other positions in the future.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Humane Society of the United States (New York, NY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    It was very informal. They called, asked a few behavioral questions, and then pretty much offered me the job, assuming that my background check went ok. I think they more focus on your resume than anything else

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Humane Society of the United States.

    Interview

    There was a fairly quick - maybe half hour or so - phone interview, and then a little while later a request of a writing sample. The phone interview was pleasant and they were very responsive to communication and my schedule, even when I had to reschedule my interview at the last minute because of illness.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at The Humane Society of the United States in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview and hiring process took too long--over 5 months. After submitting the initial resume, I had an HR phone screen within 2 weeks. The follow up phone interview with the hiring manager was scheduled 5 weeks later. An in person interview with a 6-person team was scheduled 3 weeks later. I was notified 2 months later that an internal person had been hired for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • The initial HR screen was pretty standard including if any of my beliefs were against the mission of the organization. The hiring manager phone interview asked more specific questions regarding my experience and what I would bring to the position. The team interview seemed awkward. Most of those employees that were part of the interview, didn't contribute to the interview. I asked them how this position would work with each of the members in the room and they didn't seem to know. The hiring manager left a month after the position was offered to the internal candidate. Seemed like a reorg at the company, but no one wanted to disclose it.   Answer Question
