Development Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at YWCA.
Interview Details – I received an email response to an online submission. Setting up the interview was relatively smooth, although the person setting up the interview was not clear on who I was meeting with. The interview was fine. It seemed we would go to the next stage, but then (as sometimes happened) no one called. After almost a month, I checked in. No reply. 10 months later the position is still posted. Strange.
Interview Question – No real difficult questions - normal questions Answer Question
Marketing and Communications Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at YWCA in November 2012.
Interview Details – First step is a phone interview. Manager was friendly and respectful. Not much small talk, got right to a list of previously prepared questions.
Interview Question – Discuss your best experience working with a team of people View Answer
MFT Intern Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at YWCA in May 2009.
Interview Details – I found out about the job post through Craigslist and sent in my resume. Within the week, they contacted me by phone and asked me some initial screening interview questions to make sure I understood the requirements of the job and the pay options (which was typical for an MFT intern - low) and to clarify any general questions (e.g. if I was bilingual, what work scheduling was like). They asked me to come in for an in-person interview. The San Jose offices were small and professional, and I found the staff to be friendly and professional, too.
Interview Question – Please discuss a time when you've had to deal with a difficult client. Answer Question
