Direct Care/Life Skills Instructor Interview

Direct Care/Life Skills Instructor
Bethel, CT

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Ability Beyond Disability in September 2011.

Interview Details – You sen your resume, and then you get an interview. You then get a phone call telling you wether or not you are hired.

Reason for Declining – I four out that while the average salary is 49,000 a year for this company. It's direct care staff, the underbelly of this company and the ones who work one on one with the patients teaching them life skills, toiling them and showering, dealing with sometimes violent and inappropriate behaviors, driving them around, and staying up for all night shifts with no sleep are offered a whopping 10- 12 dollars an hour. This company makes me sick. While the administrators make ample salaries while they sit at their desks preaching about the high quality of care (there does seems to be a high quality of care for people with physical and mental disabilities, I will say that) at this company, the people doing the real work are staying up all night, bathing and toiling people for an outrageously low sum. And they recruit aggressively for these jobs, but never mention the pay.

Life Skills Instructor Interview

Life Skills Instructor

Interviewed at Ability Beyond Disability

Interview Details – After applying someone called me within 2 days to set up an interview. Interview lasted between 30-45 minutes. Very straight forward: asked why I applied, described toughest parts of job and asked if that sounded like something I'd want to do, asked for my background, described various scenarios of working with people who have disabilities and asked what I'd do in each scenario. Received offer on the spot.

Interview Question – What do you do if you're working with two clients and one of them starts to display aggressive behavior, and the nearest telephone is in the other room?   Answer Question
