    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Federal Way, WA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at World Vision (Federal Way, WA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    40 minute Phone Screening with HR. 2 one hour panel interview with managers. Waiting for HR to finish up reference checks took awhile. It is understanding though, sometime that part is a lot of phone tag. Be sure your references know that you need them to take the call because if missed it can be awhile for HR to reach out again.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at World Vision.

    Interview

    I applied online and they were able to email me back after several weeks. I had to go through two rounds of interview. Both were done by phone since I did not live near the location of the company. For the first one, I was able to interview with a recruiter. This interview consists mostly of question about things on resume. After the interview was over, she told me she would get back to me in a couple of weeks if there was a position that matched my skills and interests. For my second interview, I was able to interview with my potential manager. Most of this interview was about my working style and a couple of questions about my experiences on my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions weren't really that difficult. Most of them were pretty generic, about your weaknesses and strengths etc.   Answer Question

    Administrative Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at World Vision in November 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called for an interview a couple of weeks later. The recruiter who called me was very nice. I interviewed at the Federal Way headquarters and got a chance to tour the visitor center before my interview to learn more about the company. I would recommend that to anyone who is thinking of working there. I interviewed with a recruiter as well as the department lead. All in all, the interview was pretty easy.

    Interview Questions

    • They really didn't ask me anything out of the ordinary. I knew they were going to ask me about my faith in Jesus which would have thrown me off initially. But I knew they were going to ask it so I was prepared.   Answer Question
