    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at World Vision (Federal Way, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Thorough, thoughtful, great with follow-up. The recruiter was diligent in getting back to me and didn't make promises she couldn't keep. Everyone on the interview panel was well-prepared and asked me extremely thoughtful questions and were open and honest with me when I asked them questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at World Vision (Federal Way, WA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted application online and received an email arranging a phone interview 3 days after. Phone interview lasted for an hour and a half. In-house recruiter took time to explain the role first and also gave a salary range to ensure that I was OK with a salary that was slightly below market for the role. He then proceeded to review my qualifications and asked me about various experiences in my resume.

    I was then called back for an onsite interview at their headquarters in WA State. Met with a panel of 3 interviews. Hiring Manager was one of the 3 and was interviewing remotely via teleconference. They went through an interview script.

    I was impressed with the professionalism of the recruiter and the interviewing panel. Even though I did not receive an offer, they took the trouble to call back and gave me very positive feedback on the interview.

    long interview process despite the fact that I was told my experience was faster than normal. The focus of the process is on your ability to comply with the written statement of faith.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at World Vision (Federal Way, WA) in July 2015.

    Management Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Federal Way, WA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at World Vision (Federal Way, WA).

    Interview

    Company used a search firm, which was not very sophisticated. Onsite interviews went well. I interviewed with several managers individually, as well as a group interview. Employees of the organization were extremely gracious, approachable, and appeared to enjoy working for World Vision. The organizational culture is steep in christian values. There were lots of prayers, references to biblical scriptures, and a genuine desire to convey a positive image of the organization. Another aspect of the culture is a seemingly aversion to change. My sense is some employees do not believe change will strengthen the organizational culture and/or increase its level of effectiveness and success.

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at World Vision (Federal Way, WA).

    Interview

    I applied online and was called within a few weeks to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was just standard prequalification questions. Within a week or so, I was called to schedule the next step of the interview process. This step lasted a few hours and was a great opportunity to get to know the department manager and hear more about the position. The next step was a group interview and a little daunting because it was a big group and not knowing what to expect, but after 15 minutes or so, I relaxed a bit and enjoyed getting to know the interviewers. Each step of the way I could feel the strong Christian emphasis, but wasn't required to pray for the group during the interview or anything like that. Typical process with each step, right up to the job offer. The onboarding process was an online system called Red Carpet, if I remeber correctly, and was a little bit confusing at first but I liked it when all requiremeets were completed.

    Interview

    Panel interview experience with several different teams of individuals; some technical questions; mostly basic questions about prior experience and familiarity with specific technologies.
