    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at United Way (Saint Louis, MO) in August 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process was somewhat unique compared to the other CRMs. I came through a placement agency. I spoke first with the agency to determine if this was the right fit for me. Then I interviewed over the phone with the United Way. The then scheduled a second interview for me, now face-to-face. Because Monsanto foots the bill for this portion of the United Way's business, I interviewed with both the United Way and Monsanto reps. From there, I was hired.

    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.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at United Way (Washington, DC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Was asked to come in and connected through a mutual friend. Arrived on time but waited 20 minutes for interview, staff was polite overall but interviewer made it seem they were doing me a favor having me in. Most of the questions were theoretical i.e. "what would you do in this instance?" Understand wanting to get to know personality but interviewer was not very expressive throughout. Was also told it was good I was interviewing other places. Overall just bizarre and not direct interview process.

    I went through two interviews. On the second interview they asked for samples of how I'd revamp their brochure and write a press release for them.
