    Donor Recruitment Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at American Red Cross (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2015.


    I applied online and received a phone interview request a couple of weeks later. The interviewer was a recruitment agent and wasn't very specific about the job particulars. The questions were more general in nature. "Tell me about a time where you did this or that," type questions. The interviewer was very personable and I felt that he was very easy to talk to which made the process enjoyable and I didn't even mind the generic interview questions. He told me that the next step in the process if selected for an in-person interview could take a few weeks. I told him that I was actively interviewing other positions with other companies but was interested in this position. He told me that he was going to forward my information on and set up a second interview and asked if he were to coordinate something soon, would I be able to travel to the district manager's location to speed up the process rather than wait for her to come to my city. Good to his word, he contacted me today (Monday) and had everything arranged. My phone interview was just this last Friday. I certainly appreciate the attention he gave me and am looking forward to the in-person interview he scheduled for Wednesday. I will update this review after the interview process plays out.
