    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (New York, NY (US)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute phone screening, followed by an in-person interview a week later. Phone screen was high-level, went over details of the job and reviewed my present and past employment. In-person was with 2 members of the team. Based on previous comments here I thought it would be all situational questions but it was more of an informal conversation about what my role would be, how my skills could transfer over and expectations for the role. All interviewers were friendly, open and great representatives for ACS. I appreciated that they were very up front about pay, expectations and had a very clear view of the role.

    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oakland, CA (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Cancer Society (Oakland, CA (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Mostly scenario questions. What would you do in this situation. The interview does not give you a good idea of what the job actually is. The phone interview came after the in person interview which I think was a miscommunication on their end because the phone interviewer was surprised to hear I already had the in person. Kind of unprofessional.
