    Associate Director of Development Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy in February 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and heard back via email in about a week. The HR rep scheduled a phone interview for which I was to call them at a prescribed time. I called for the interview and got a voicemail. After a second attempt I sent an email to make sure I had the right number. About 4 hours later the HR rep requested we reschedule as something had come up. We connected the next day and spoke for about 30 minutes. Basic phone interview type questions. I was told I could expect next steps in the next week. After 7 days I emailed to inquire on status. No response. About 2 weeks after the phone interview I got an email letting me know they are moving forward with other candidates.

    Fine experience while really rough on the communication. Would have liked to have moved on or gotten some feedback on what they were looking for.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy (New Haven, CT).

    Interview

    15 minutes pre-screening includes basic questions such as please introduce yourself, why TNC? Why this team? Why this position? What's is your visa status? Will you be willing to relocate to Colorado?. First round interview was 30-45 minutes including behavioral questions and a mini case. Second round would be a case that you need to send back a memo/financial models. Last round would be with a team director.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two staffers at once. Both worked for different departments of the Nature Conservancy and wanted to help assess the best placement for me as an intern. They were both very nice and professional. I felt like they did a really good job in figuring out where to put me and preparing me for what to expect once I started the job.
