    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Pacific Clinics.

    Interview Details

    Applied for this position online and received a phone call for an interview three days after my application was sent. I had a very enjoyable interview with two of the staff from the clinic- they asked general questions about work experience in the mental health field and showed me around the office when the interview was over.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to write a simple paragraph describing the events that occurred from the day before. The purpose of this assignment was to see my writing style and how descriptive I would be. This is important because this position requires documenting the details of the counseling sessions with the clients.   Answer Question

    Mental Health Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Pacific Clinics.

    Interview Details

    1 interview that involved a "typing test" where you had to write a sample note. The hiring process took a very long time. It took several weeks to find out that I had indeed been offered the job. Salary is not discussed in the interview and is handled by HR on the phone call. I didn't actually start for a month after the initially reported start date. My paperwork was not entered, so it took another 1.5 months (waiver for unlicensed psychologist) to start obtaining hours towards licensure and get paid a therapist salary.

    Be sure to ask about turnover and steer clear, if possible, from the programs with high turnover. There is usually a good reason, and there seems to be a lot of discrepancy in job satisfaction depending on program.

    Interview Questions
    • None. They will give case examples and ask how you would respond in a situation.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not feel like I was able to negotiate because HR called me with the official offer, not the people I interviewed with. It was not presented as negotiable. However, after the fact I learned there was a little room for negotiation, but not much.
