    I worked at MoveOn full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talented coworkers, virtual office geographic flexibility, principled policy stances, innovative work culture.

    Cons

    Some people struggle with virtual office. I didn't, but if you're not good at managing yourself or working alone, it can be less of a good fit.

    Campaign Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MoveOn (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2019.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the HR person, then a case study assignment, then a video conferencing interview with two employees, then a one-hour test, and then a final interview with three employees.

    After my final interview, they said I would be hearing about next steps in about a week. After I didn't hear back, I sent the talent manager a follow-up email to see if I was still in the process. There was no response. I sent her a text another week after that, no response. Three weeks after my interview, I checked in with the Campaign Director who had been part of my final interview. I got no response again.

    This was a position I really wanted to take on and was anxious to hear back from. So I would have appreciated some sort of response letting me know that they were still considering candidates, or there was a delay, etc. Instead, after three interviews and two assignments, I was left hanging in the dark for five weeks (four weeks after I was told I would hear from them) until I finally got an email saying I was not chosen.

    Everyone I spoke to was friendly, had great questions, and were very forthcoming. I don't know why the process didn't reflect the same tone.
