I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Center for Discovery in July 2013.
Interview Details – It was easy a few years ago when I was hired. Was initially screened by the Clinical Coordinator then sent to the Director for interview. There were the usual hoop of background check, fingerprinting and health screening that have become ubiquitous. I think from start to finish it took about a month.
Interview Question – What would you do if two clients got into a physical altercation? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They asked the minimum I was willing to work for. I had not yet finished my training as a drug and alcohol counselor so I bid low. It's a real shame I did that because there is no set wage for the position, and the max increase for "superior" performance after a year is 6%, even though I have substantially more education now. But then some employees got no increase at all this year.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Center for Discovery in January 2013.
Interview Details – Very basic. I felt like I lead the interview process and asked more questions then the interviewer did. I was asked the basic questions. Tell me about your background, education, why I wanted to work in mental health etc. Interviewer explained a little more about the position however didn't go into too much detail. At times I felt like I was fishing for information. I asked questions like "Can you walk me though a typical shift'...Interviewer didn't really have a response for me. I asked why the position was open...again, interviewer skated over this question.
Interview Question – There were none. She did ask me why I wanted to work in mental health but I wouldn't consider that a difficult question. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was a little annoyed because I was told in the interview that the hourly salary i was requesting shouldn't be a problem however when the offer was made the hourly salary was a $1 less.
