    I interviewed online - interviewed at American Red Cross in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring was inconsiderate they called me on a Friday at 4:45PM and wanted me to show up for training on Monday morning at 8:00AM. Unfortunately I was still employed and found it necessary to give my current employer a two week notice. Interview was typical nothing outrageous.

    Traveling Phlebotomist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Salt Lake City, UT (US)

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at American Red Cross in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward On-line application, Phone interview was prompt and pleasant, Invitation to a physical interview was immediate. The atmosphere for the interview was formal but relaxed, they used an administrator plus a field manager to ask "in this situation what would you do?" questions. They were very up front about the pros and cons of the work involved. They planned to fill the positions within 2 weeks but there was no response for 'accept or deny' and no answer to inquiry at their HR.

    Donor Counselor I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Charlotte, NC (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC (US)
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    I was originally contacted by Aerotek for this position. The job was contract-to-hire. I was interviewed for one position, which no longer exists, and was turned down. However, my recruiter managed to persuade the HR rep to consider me for another position. I was then hired as a CI. On my third day of training, I was told by the HR rep that the CI position was already promised to someone else. However, I still had a job, but it was the Donor Counselor I position.

    Data Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at American Red Cross in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a phone call a week later for phone screening. Phone screening was very easy. After the phone screening, interview was set up. Interview was fairly easy but I could tell my interviewer wasn't into it. She kept making faces at every answer I made, also made face when she would write down notes. The interview lasted about 15 minutes, I was in a room with about 4-5 other interviews going on at the same time so it was a bit hard to concentrate, and she didn't let me know the next steps in the process and she also didn't walk me out. Overall it was an okay experience. It really does seem like a good company to work for.

    Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at American Red Cross.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by HR after submitting my resume online, they gave me an overview of the position and set up an in person interview. I was under the impression it was with one person, however, I ended up interviewing with 3 different people. 2 hours after my interview ended, I received an email that I was a final candidate and they were starting a background check. I received a voicemail a couple days later (on a Friday), I called right back, but did not get through. No response on Monday either. On Tuesday, they called to officially offer me the position and wanted me to start in less than 2 weeks. Very late notice as I had to move to a new city to accept this position!

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at American Red Cross in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my application for this position in NYC office, I got a phone call to schedule an interview. I was a little surprised when I met 6 people waiting in a meeting room to interview me. In general, they were very nice. I have a feeling that interviewers of NGOs are more friendly than those in other sectors.

    Disaster Services Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at American Red Cross in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on-line and received phone interview in about a week. Easy questions, such as tell us about yourself, why do you want to work for us, etc. The biggest issue was the salary of 40K for a manager in charge of a 8 county region. I can see why the position sits open for a long time. The interviewer was friendly and seemed to be upfront about the position. The interview was cut short when the salary was mentioned.
