    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at NHS Human Services (Scranton, PA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Very Intense interview with a lot of very hands on and specific questions. The interview went well, but if you didn't have experience in the Mental Health field, I think you would struggle with the questions that were asked. There was at least 20 of them and the interview took about 2 hours.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at NHS Human Services (Hammond, LA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call in less than a week to interview. The interview occurred at a coffee shop, since the office I was being interviewed to work in was not yet furnished. NHS was expanding into my area and had obtained the building, but not furnished or staffed it yet. My interviewer was relaxed and interested in my responses. She explained the position and the agency very well. She supplied her contact information and invited me to call or email if I had any remaining questions. She explained that she had another interview scheduled and arranged to contact me after that to discuss her hiring decision.

    The interviewer/manager emailed me and asked me to call her. When I went into the office, she offered me a very generous salary, stating that she always pays her staff the maximum in the range given by the organization. I was overjoyed with the salary I was offered! And I was given an extra $6000 travel stipend.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at NHS Human Services.

    Interview

    Simple interview, very quick and was offered the position on the spot. After that comes weeks of waiting around until training begins and then it takes a few weeks after training to get your first cases(s). Need to get TB testing, physical exam and give employers your school records. Go through background checks and child abuse check. Nothing major.

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. Pay is $13 per hour (fee for service). You are NOT considered a full time employee, you do NOT get benefits.

    it was easy and quick , it was almost as if i had the job already the moment that I walked in through the door. The interviewer claims that certain procedures will be followed prior to hiring me but the person never did what they said they would do meanwhile they charged me for what they claimed that they would do. I'm referring to a background check
