    College Outreach Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, MO (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at DKMS (Washington, MO (US)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was hired as a temp with no end date through a local employment agency. The initial interview with my current coworker was breezy and professional. The agency didn't quite have much detail about the role, so I began the interview reticent, but open-minded. By the time I headed home, I was extremely excited for the opportunity. The second interview included my current boss, and was just as wonderful of an experience.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if I had a personal reason for wanting to work for a cancer-fighting nonprofit. I feel this was an important question. Nonprofits tend to have high employee turnover, simply because they often cannot afford to pay what for-profits can pay. They need to be sure they're hiring someone who is there not just for pay, but because they have a passion for what they do.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at DKMS.

    Interview

    Phone interview. In person interview with HR and CEO held on separate days. The HR manager has no really experience working with patients or families, their only concern is how you present yourself and dress. She has a fashion background and no real HR experience either. If you dress well it's your job to lose.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DKMS in April 2014.

    Interview

    First contacted me by phone - did a phone interview on the spot. I was then invited for an in-person interview, where I met with someone from HR and then the manager of the department I was interviewing for. Both were very kind and personable. After the in-person I was contacted by email to schedule a phone interview with the Director of Donor Management (she was out of town). Everyone was pleasant and were very insightful about the organization and the position. I remained in touch via email, and about three weeks later they called with a job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected - strength/weakness, why DKMS, greatest challenge. Be sure to have stories of your achievements and accomplishments, and how you achieved them, and be able to describe your resume in depth.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered me a higher salary then they first told me during our first interview, so I did not have to negotiate. I accepted the job as it was offered.
