    Internship Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy.

    Interview

    Three sets of interviews. First one was short and with a Project Manager over the phone. Second one was in person with two full sets of hiring managers. Third one was with the Director. Interview process was good and the questions were straight-forward. The in-person panels had less technical questions and more situational questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy in April 2017.

    Interview

    They interviewed over Skype for Business, and it's two to three people interviewing you at once, alternating who is asking the questions. This interview was with the Colorado chapter and I'm not sure if other chapters conduct their interviews in the same way. I have interviewed for them twice now, accepting the first offer for a seasonal position, and not receiving an offer for the second, although the processes were very similar.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy in March 2017.

    Interview

    Application is fairly brief, various details from the resume fleshed out and a cover letter. Heard back to schedule phone interview 2-3 days after the job opening closed and scheduled one the next week. Phone call was fairly casual and comfortable, did a fair amount of explaining the job and asked a few questions about qualifications etc. Seem to really want people who are passionate about the job and the overall goals.

    Interview

    I was called for a phone interview and scheduled a slot for about 2-3 weeks later. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes, and included approximately 4 people that worked at that Nature Conservancy office on similar issues.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Nature Conservancy.

    Interview

    Unethically long hiring process. Interviewers couldn't even answer simple questions such as "what is your company culture like?" or "around how many donors do you deal with?" They string you along with countless interviews with WAY too many people, only to ignore your calls for a week after a final decision was to be made. Extremely unprofessional and unorganized.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    1 phone interview with two people and 1 Skype interview with three people. Both were straight forward interviews. No trick questions. All the people I talked to were very nice. It seems like an awesome place to work. I was pretty bummed I didn't get the job. I would definitely apply with this organization again.
