    Bilingual Soccer Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Boy Scouts of America in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very friendly and consisted of all the usual questions. Since it was for a Spanish speaking position, the first interview was held entirely in Spanish, so be prepared for that if you're looking at a bilingual position. The next was with the first interviewer and the supervisor. That was about the same, but in English. They would have been very good to work with.

    Reasons for Declining

    I assumed the position was full-time based on what they were telling me, but found out it was 20 hours/week and would have been $10/hour.
