    Direct Support Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Chester, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Devereux (West Chester, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    There were several interviews- The first being a "job fair" that they invite all who apply online to as well as accepting walk-ins to fill out applications. The second part is interviewing with one supervisor and then waiting on the gymnasium benches with the other applicants to see if you make it to the "next round" to interview with another supervisor. Then after all state and federal background/child abuse clearances have been received you must go in for another interview (usually about two weeks later) and they do not communicate with you to update you on that last interview. Then at the last interview they do an oral swab drug test and give you papers to go get fingerprinted and get a physical and get your clearances again. Finally about 1-2 weeks after that then they offer you the job.

    I: I Aide Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Devereux.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from the recruiter. She asked me some basic questions and said she would like for me to go meet with the group home manager. After setting up the second interview after the phone interview she said that my hours would be Tuesday-Saturday from 3-11 with it being very likely I would be staying much later. I told her this was not the position I applied for. She agreed and said age would call me back if a day position opened. She did call back the next day but I ended up taking another job offer that evening.

    Reasons for Declining

    Was offered more money for another company. About double. They don't pay much so you need to love what you do here for it to be worth it. Just being honest.
