    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Atlanta, GA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online, received an email roughly a week later to schedule a phone interview for the following week with a talent acquisition team member at a corporate location. I then scheduled a second phone interview with the team at the location I was applying for during the following week. A few days later I was asked to come for an in-person interview and was told via phone that I did not get the position a week after that. The entire process took roughly 1 month.
