    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PETA in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was a joke of a process-if you know a little about animal rights you'll do great. I had two preliminary phone interviews, and then it took about a week to check-in with my references. Once they talked to references, I submitted a couple writing samples and was shortly thereafter offered the position.

    Special Projects Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PETA (Norfolk, VA (US)) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Typically you "try out" by visiting the office for at least two days and working within the department (a pain if you're trying to interview discretely, and a big time commitment) but they were so in need of people that after a 30-minute phone interview, a writing sample test, and an in-person interview with two people, I walked right on.

    Interview Questions

    • People don't feel like they can keep up with the amount of work we give. They say it's moving too fast. Will that be a problem for you?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offer you a salary and tell you they can't go higher. I didn't argue because I needed a job immediately, even though the pay was low. You can probably negotiate, but I never felt I was in the best position to.

    IT Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PETA (Norfolk, VA (US)) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Recieved a screening call from placement agency. Position seemed positive. 1-1 interviews with managers from different groups. Some were very warm and some gave me a very unconfortable feeling. I did not get a warm feeling from director. Seemed to be a bit sarcastic.

    Vegan culture only. Impression people could be really mean if you didn't choose a vegan lifestyle outside of work.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PETA (Aurora, IL (US)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to send in some writing samples. I wrote a story of a time with an animal that meant a lot to me, I wrote a blog post, a letter to the editor, and I wrote my thoughts on the PETAsaves website. After this was reviewed I participated in a Skype interview. I waited a few weeks and was sent an email that I was accepted for the intern program.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PETA (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    2 weeks after I applied, they followed up and explained the extensive interview process and if I'd like to move forward. I said yes and was asked to complete 3 projects. They were time consuming but one of them allowed for some creative thinking which I liked. After I sent those in, had a phone interview. The woman I spoke with was great but thought I might be overqualified for the job. Found out about 2 weeks later I didn't get it. She said I was overqualified.

    Senior Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PETA (Norfolk, VA (US)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied at the beginning of July and about a week later was contacted to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview took place near the end of July. The phone interview lasted about an hour and was pretty intense. The interview was not with HR but another senior researcher. A lot of technical questions and discussions about my background. The next step after the phone interview was to do a mini project to see if you like the work and so PETA could assess your skills. However, I did not get past the phone interview so I was never asked to do the mini project. But it seems like it would of been a lot of work, especially for someone already working full time.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were on the radio and asked the question "Can animal research ever be replaced with alternative testing methods?' There were quite a few questions like that and also I was asked to provide specific examples to those questions.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PETA (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    There was a lengthy application to really access applicants and I think it's effective in discouraging people who wouldn't be a good fit. I completed a few sample projects and had Skype call ahead of my in office, one-day, volunteer working interview. The working interview included a writing sample and more sample projects with my department.

    Interview Questions

    • How do I feel about PETA and PETA's stance on various things, such as euthanasia and tactics.   Answer Question

    Interview

    After submitting my resume and cover letter online, I received a phone call from the hiring manager that was an impromptu phone interview, which lasted about 45 minutes. I was invited in for an in person 1:1 interview with the manager of the video department, and then I was introduced to the department, where they asked many technical questions.

    I tried to negotiate up from the salary offer, but they stood their ground with a "take it or leave it" attitude. Don't expect them to budge.
