I worked at The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation full-time
What a wonderful place to work. Great co-workers, generous benefits, a gym. Lovely place.
Hard to measure success in social change. But Hewlett is trying.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation (Menlo Park, CA).
The entire process lasted 5 months from application to offer. I submitted a resume and cover letter online and heard back that I would be contacted to schedule a phone meeting about three weeks later. The process was not that transparent. The phone interview was with the head of the department and it went well. The conversation was surprisingly casual - mainly about interests and experiences and less so about specific skills or achievements. This was followed a couple months later by an in person all day set of panel interviews at the office. I met about 13 people that day that ranged from folks in the program to others with my job title across the organization to HR. About a week later I got a phone call to go over the terms of the position and prepare me to receive an offer letter.
I was not allowed to negotiate at the interview, which I later needed to remediate because I found out others were.
