    Corporate Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at United Way (Tampa, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview went great, was told I'd be contacted n a few days for a second interview. After ten days I followed up with an email to schedule a second interview. The interview was scheduled within twenty minutes of my follow up email. Second interview went well. Was given two weeks expectations for a turn around time. Tried following up with the interviewer via email but no response. We are four weeks from my second interview. I got completely ghosted. Very unprofessional for a major non profit.

    Corporate Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at United Way (Tampa, FL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I met with a VP in the development department 1 on 1 for about an hour. It felt pretty conversational, with the focus on her understanding more of my experience and interests, building off of my resume and cover letter. I also had a chance to ask quite a few questions about what working at United Way is like.

    Vista Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    I got an interview because I called, showed interest, and asked the right questions. The first part of the interview was lead by the main interviewer. She asked lots of typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions

    • The second part was a round robin with three or four other people asking objection questions such as: how do you feel about having a positive attitude while working with the poor, how are you going to adapt to a different culture (I was moving), etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, this is a VISTA position. If you are interested in coming back as a VISTA leader / want to work for them mention it early. (Great way to get your foot in the door by working for them for two years first, though I haven't started working for them yet.)

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at United Way.

    Interview

    Very laid back, one on one interview. They will be interested in your prior community service experience, be prepared to give examples. The interview is basically just a walk through of your resume. They focus on your strengths rather than asking about weaknesses. It's not a typical interview with question and answer, rather very conversational.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Very lax - was interviewed informally and my hiring director left the company one week after I started. Very unorganized and not a proper structure. Told me that they would structure position around me and then did not.
