    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    This review is specifically for United Way NYC. Would not recommend. I received absolutely no follow-up regarding my status after multiple interviews. It would have been helpful to receive some type of update after reaching out several times. Lack of follow-up is not a good sign, in my opinion.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Way (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    I applied online and had a phone screen with HR a few days later. The HR rep read verbatim from the job description and asked if I was still interested in the position. She then asked me about my experience in web programming and graphic design, among other things. I asked some clarifying questions because the job description asked for minimal design skills and basic HTML and CSS. I asked if they were looking for someone to build website from scratch or utilize CMS. Did they want a graphic designer or someone who knows their way around Adobe Creative Suite, but doesn't consider themselves an artist. She admitted that she wasn't sure what the hiring manager was looking for and that she couldn't answer any specific questions related to the position.

    At the very least, the HR rep doing the phone screenings should have some knowledge about the position they are screening for. This woman did not and she apologized for it. I do not fault her, as she was very nice and professional. Unfortunately, it makes the organization look bad in the eyes of the candidate.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Way (Seattle, WA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied, they got back to me quickly to set a time for an interview. They kept me informed throughout the process. Wonderfully easy. Then they said they would be in touch, probably by the end of the week. This was Tuesday morning. Nothing, nothing, nothing. I emailed, which generated a "we'll be in touch" reply. I sent along an relevant article and an announcement for a local workshop, which generated "thanks for this" responses. Finally, 3 1/2 weeks later, they responded to my "I'm still interested" email with the notice that they had filled the position.

    Digital Content Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Way (Nashville, TN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The first round was a brief phone call about the position. It was very pleasant and went well.

    Then they reached out to me for another call, and I assumed I had a second interview.

    Once on the call, I realized they were asking me the same exact questions, and it was the same person as before.

    An absolute waste of time.
