Difficult Interview

Assistant Family Teacher Interview

Assistant Family Teacher

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Boys Town in December 2010.

Interview Details – Interviewing for the position is rigorous, where Interviewee is asked several questions related to working with children in difficult situations. Role playing is required to see how the interviewee would compose themselves in a turbulent case scenario.

Interview Question – Most difficult is role playing because you are looking for a right way to do it instead of the way the company sees fit. It test your ability to handle certain situations.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Non Profit organization, you get what they offer based on experience. If the compensation is not enough than don't take the position.

Behavioral Health Technician I Interview

Behavioral Health Technician I

I applied online and interviewed at Boys Town.

Interview Details – Applied online, received a phone call within a week. The caller on the phone asked questions about availability, experience, previous jobs, and why I wanted to work as a behavioral health tech. We set up an interview for the following week. I went to the hospital downtown for the interview. It mostly consisted of a worksheet at the beginning containing various scenarios and what I would do about them, and they gave me a job description sheet of the position. The actual interview which took place once I was done took about 45 minutes and consisted of role playing a few scenarios and more 'what would you do' questions.

Interview Question – What would you do if you saw another employee being a little too friendly with the youth?   View Answer

Assistant Family Teacher Interview

Assistant Family Teacher
Omaha, NE

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Boys Town in November 2011.

Interview Details – There was an initial interview with an outside party and then an interview with a clinical specialist. You have to be ready to learn the Boys Town model on the fly. I have had four total interviews with Boys Town. After two of them I received an offer for employment and was not offered employment after the other two. Being that all four interviews were relatively the same, I am unsure of what Boys Town is looking for during the interview process.

Interview Question – What situation would you feel most uncomfortable with while dealing with Boys Town youth?   Answer Question
