    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Children's Home + Aid.

    Interview

    The interview was great. We spend lots of time discussing our expectation on the position. At the end of the interview i has a clear understanding of what the position was, and the interviewer has a great understanding of my personal goals in the job. I did not feel like this was your average interview because it consisted of getting to know each other first, this was a great sign for me to notice the company culture, and i must say i was impress! Overall, i am very glad i was able to have the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Children's Home + Aid.

    Interview

    I had one interview with the woman who would ultimately be my direct supervisor. I got a good vibe from the company via the receptionist and my interview started on time. After a quick tour of the building, recently renovated, we sat down t interview. My interview was probably 30 minutes at most and didn't include anything outside of the normal interview questions. I was a little nervous, as expected, and the person interviewing me was pretty stern but did laugh a little. Nothing out of the ordinary. Very professional.

    Negotiation

    I was fresh out of grad school and happy to have an offer (my second one). Therefore, I did not negotiate. Please do! Or you will be stuck with that salary.

    Interview Questions

    • This is hard to recall because it's been quite a while. I remember being asked why I thought people lie (because we do come across people who want to seem different than they really are). I believe the interview questions have since been changed so this might not be helpful.   Answer Question
