    Grants and Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at InterAction (Washington, DC (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Received an e-mail with an invitation to interview and then met with two people. The first interviewer spent around 20-30 minutes with me and told me I had the exact experience they were looking for. The second interviewer, the decision maker, came in, looked at my resume, and told said they wanted someone with more accounting experience but not a CPA. They told me about the next steps in the interview process and I followed-up with thank-you e-mails to both interviewers. I never heard anything else.

    Director of Communications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at InterAction (Washington, DC (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a standard process - what little I took part in. I applied online and had a preliminary phone screening with a very high-ranking staffer and the two staffers who are supervised by this position. The biggest thing is that I never heard back from the woman I interviewed with following the interview - not a peep. I find this extremely rude and inconsiderate. I find it astonishing that someone who ranks so high in her organization is so irresponsible and rude to potential employees. I hate to see how she treats her actual employees. If there's one good thing about interviews that have these results, it's that I know which organizations I don't want to work for - the ones that treat people like they're lower than pond scum.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at InterAction (New York, NY (US)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Within 4 days of the application deadline, i received an email stating that they wanted to schedule a 30 minute phone interview with me. I quickly sent my reply, and set up a time and day of the week. Towards the end of the interview, I was told that the decisions will be made in 2 weeks. In the first week, the internship coordinator emailed me and told me that I was offered a position. I accepted.
    For the first maybe 5 minutes, the coordinator went over what InterAction does globally, and over the position and department I applied for. Then asked me questions - nothing too hard, mostly about my experiences, why I wanted to work there, etc. Then I asked my own questions about the company, culture, and department.
    I thought it went well and my interviewer even said that the reasons I wanted to intern for the orga toon were in sync with InterAction's goals.

    Senior Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at InterAction (Washington, DC (US)) in July 2010.

    Interview

    My interview process was relatively straightforward. I had a phone interview where my future boss provided me with a description of the job and asked a lot of questions about my personal life. I believe he wanted to get a feel for who I was during the phone interview. After successfully getting past the phone interview round, I had an in-person interview with two senior staffers, where they asked me more job-specific questions. After that interview, I had to wait about three weeks before hearing that I had been offered the position. I did not negotiate my salary and began work two weeks after being offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • During my second interview, I was asked to think through the following scenario: 'You have three missed called/voicemails. One from the CEO of InterAction, one from the head of your division and one from your immediate supervisor, all asking you to call them back immediately. Who do you call back first, second and last and why?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiating between me and my future bosses, but my future bosses did negotiate with their bosses to increase my initial offer by 5% before I started when I intimated that the salary was quite low and something I had to consider when decided on the offer.
