    I was called in about a year ago, the process is easy. They ask a few personal questions and then the manager reads some information about the red cross. The manager was very friendly and it wasnt stressful at all.

    Lead Scrum Master Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Australian Red Cross (Sydney) in June 2019.

    Interview

    1. Phone call with HR, followed by phone call with CTO.
    2. Face to face interview with the CTO and two other people. The HR confirmed the interview but forgot to send me the email conformation and I had to call her twice to receive the interview details. Incompetency at its best!

    At the end of the interview, the CTO said she'd get in touch within a couple of days, but totally went AWOL afterwards. I've emailed them to see if they have any update, they kept saying they're still deciding even after a month. Finally I called out on their incompetency in the interviewing process, and they totally disappeared. One thing I learnt from this experience is that, none of the employees of Red Cross actually believe in the org's values. Don't be fooled by the brand of Red Cross. They're complacent, lazy and unprofessional- staying in the same company for decades. Now I'm actually put off by the Australian Red Cross brand. Respect people who take time to interview with you and treat them with dignity and professionalism.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Australian Red Cross (Melbourne) in January 2019.

    Interview

    They'll call you after you've applied, and they'll ask you what time you're free to do a phone interview. The phone interview is quite short, and casual in nature. The interviewer is very forgiving if you don't know how to answer a question.

    I interviewed at Australian Red Cross (Melbourne) in January 2019.

    Interview

    They just asked some questions about general customer service. Everything was easy to answer and I think it is better to prepare the reason why you wanna volunteer at Red Cross.

    Public Relations/Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Australian Red Cross (Sydney) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a panel of 4 persons in the different department the position would be liaising with + an HR person. At the end it was said we would get a rapid answer and would be contacted for an interview feedback but over 3 weeks later, still no news despite a call and 2 emails. I found it very disappointing from a big organisation that I really admire to not even get a quick phone call or an email to explain why they will not go further with an application.
