    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at United Nations Foundation (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First I had an in person interview with two people in the department, which went well and was pretty standard. After they asked me to do a second round, I had two phone interviews (for logistical reasons) with another person in the department and one that oversees multiple departments. I was offered the position the next day. The whole process (from the time I applied) took about a week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at United Nations Foundation (Washington, DC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone Screening interview. I talked with three people on the phone. It was challenging and difficult to listen clearly to them . However, they were very nice and accommodated. Only asked like 2-3 basic questions about my background and resume. I asked them a lot in return and it seemed to really get the conversation going.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at United Nations Foundation (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Nearly a month after I submitted my application materials, I received a brief telephone call asking a few basic but bold questions (what is your current salary? how much notice must you give at your current job? etc). The caller was curt. Then received an email 5 days later regarding an in-person interview. The actual interview took place a week later. The assistant showed me to the wrong conference room. The main program manager apologize when he arrived 20 minutes late but it was still nerve-wracking. Then he began with "what questions do you have for me?" and that was unsettling as well. The interview itself was very unstructured, almost without any direction at all. At the end of the interview, he asked for references. He also requested a writing sample and I sent one via email. A few days later, the assistant requested another, long writing sample. A few days after that, I received an email that I was no longer in the hunt for a second interview. Overall, the process was seemed rather opaque and unnecessarily long.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at United Nations Foundation (Washington, DC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was over the phone, and they were very personable. They wanted to know what my motivation was for applying and what I knew about the organization and the campaign itself. This was easy with the use of some Google. They wanted to know also how my past experience would impact my future work with them. The fact that I didn't have as prestigious of a resume as other applicants was not an issue.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Nations Foundation (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I applied for an intern position online and got an interview a few weeks later. The interview was OK, and they said, "we'll contact you next week". But it just never happened - no response ever since, not even a rejection email. I sent a follow-up email to the interviewer, reiterating my interested and trying to ask about the status, but still got ignored and no response. Kinda frustrating.

    I understand no response for a resume-only-application. But come on, this is a in-person interview...I mean, I would be OK with the fact that I am not qualified and thus rejected, but not like this, not like a silent, rude rejection.

    Such wouldn't be the boss i'd like to work with anyway.
