    EPM Project Manager and Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview Details

    My initial interview was over the phone, very scripted screening questions to make sure I knew what Planned Parenthood is all about. I met the hiring manager in person for an hour conversation first, then spent another 20 minutes or so speaking with the VP of the hiring department. Passing that, I had to complete background clearance checks and a personality/ work ethic survey. Once the results were back from that I returned to meet the rest of the team. It was very informal - the team can ask any questions they'd like of the candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • The only unexpected element was the extreme informality of the large group interview - questions were very casual and only some of them only somewhat business related.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    This was during the early recession, and before I knew what a 'negotiation phase' was.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview Details

    Liked interviewing when I did. Heard It is much different now. After a phone screen, I interviewed with my boss, it went well. My new co-workers go thru multiple interviews. New people are told you can not negotiate salary but you can. I think a lot has changed in the last 5 years.

    Interview Questions
    • My interview was easy but some new co-workers report they are asked about hypothetical occurrences and pushed for answer "Well, WHAT WOUD YOU DO?" "ARE YOU SURE YOU NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS?"   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Planned Parenthood in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online 8/15/14 (Friday night) - got an email Monday morning (8/18/14) asking me for a phone interview.

    Phone interview 8/21/14 - very casual and conversational. They want to feel you out and make sure you support women's reproductive rights abnd are pro-choice. Interview lasted about 10 mins, and at the end of the phonecall I was asked to come for an in-person interview the following week (8/26/14).

    First In-Person Interview
    Relaxed and Casual. The first part of the interview was spent going over and being tested on the computer system (about 45 mins), then the clinic director came in and spent about 10 mins asking about my experience and goals. Was called the next day and asked to come for second interview 2 days later.

    Second In-Person Interview
    Interview 8/29/14. This was a meeting with the rest of the staff, very informal and chatted about my experience. This was a Friday - it was a holiday the following Monday, so they called me on the Tuesday (9/2/14) and offered me the job.

    Interview Questions
    • They will ask how you feel about abortion - there is no point applying to this organisation if you're pro-life. They will want to know about your experiences, and your plans for the future.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Was originally told that salary was $11.50 per hour - when they offrered the job they told me that they would start me on $11.75, going up to $12.25 after training.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Planned Parenthood.

    Interview Details

    They hire fast, and really take what they can get in a pinch. They prefer that you have a bachelor's degree but high school diploma or GED is all you really need.

    Negotiation Details
    They told me how much they could pay me and there was little negotiating on that number.

    Registered Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Planned Parenthood in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for an RN position on April 24th. On May 5th, I received an email from a employee recruiter asking to set up a telephone interview. The following day I spoke with her for about 10 minutes. She asked me about why I wanted to work at PP and other questions about my comfort levels about working at an abortion clinic. I was very excited to be given the opportunity for a phone interview so I was sure express my excitement and gratitude to the woman I phone interviewed with. She told me I sounded like I would be a great fit for the team and told me she would pass on my information to the hiring manager at the clinic and that I should expect a call from her in the next few days. The following Tuesday I heard from the nurse manager and went in for a face to face interview the next day.

    The in person interview was perfect, we talked for over two hours about many things and I walked away feeling like this was literally the perfect job for me. I filled out a paper application and a background check and then scheduled a time to come in for a day of shadowing at the clinic. Two days later I spent the day with the team observing and talking to the staff members. At the end of the day the manger asked me how I felt about the shadowing experience and I told her I felt like it was the place I was supposed to be in. She told me she was going to submit my background check and be in touch with me soon.

    About two weeks later I took my NCLEX and I called the manager as soon as I found out I had passed and she told me they would begin to prepare an offer for me. A few days later I got my offer and it was everything I needed and more.
