    Interview Details

    Well, I applied online on Monday and I got an email responding that they were holding open interviews the next day ( Tuesday). I attended the open interview. My interviewer was nice. She asked me questions in regards to my experience and behavior. After the interview she gave me a packet to fill out for background checks.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Devereux in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is very thorough - this company is very focused on recruiting and retaining excellent staff. After filling out an online application and submitting a resume, there is a phone interview, an in-person interview, and then an observation session to see if the organization will be a good match for you and vice versa.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not noticeably difficult or unexpected; the interviewer was very personable and forthcoming about what the organization is seeking in its staff. A thoughtful question was " tell me about a time when you did not agree with a coworker, and how you handled it" - there are many of these example type questions.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was the only part of the interview process that was not smooth or thorough. They are pretty set on what they are offering, and let you know this upfront; however, it is pretty competitive and their benefits are very good.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Devereux in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Overall, the interview process was well organized. There were 15 scripted questions. Many of which were scenarios. Initially, there were about 8-10 applicants in one room and we filled out apps. Afterwards, each applicant is assigned to a unit manager whcih consisted of 1:2. I felt that I did really great in the interview, but got declined for a job offer. They did call from HR, but it was 2 days later than what they said it would be. If you are new to this area of work, the interview questions might be difficult for you.
