    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Catholic Charities USA.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews total, two at local office and one in Manhattan with HR. Management very willing and able to answer questions about the agency. Interviewers want you to be the right candidate so they are rooting for you to do well. Don't take it personally if you don't get an offer, as positions are competitive and they are often looking for a specific type of candidate to carry out special projects. Also don't panic if they don't call you right away. The hiring process is a long one (can last 1-2 months).

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Catholic Charities USA in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    As the advertised position was a part of an emergency, temporary project, the interview process was not typical of the organization's hiring process. However, the organization responds to disasters with new programs, so this may happen again. I was referred to the project manager as someone who had the skills to fill the position and, as the position needed to be filled immediately, the manager (friendly but professional) briefly interviewed me on site and reviewed my credentials. Then, I volunteered and was trained in the position for one week before being officially hired. I had to submit documentation and proof of my education to HR.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you handle difficult cases in which the clients may be angry or threatening towards you?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was not negotiable. There was a certain amount of funding available for the position.
