    Program Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs.

    Interview Details

    My online application was answered with three days of submitting. I interviewed with a panel of HR professionals, followed by an interview with the director I would be supporting. The panel interview was pretty standard featuring the questions one would expect. I would recommend preparing for the second interview as the managing interviewer will have some very specific questions.

    Interview Questions
    • How Do you like to be managed? I found it unexpected because I had been my experience that managing top-down was an accepted practice and that direct report preferences was not considered--even if gauging work ethics.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard process. Submit a job application and resume to HR. They will call to set up an interview, which involves two people. They ask questions related to the job you're applying for, give scenarios and ask your response, ask about experience and interest in the organization. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions
    • Responding to scenario questions would be difficult if you have no experience.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They do not do a lot of negotiating, they offer you a position.
