    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Children's Aid Society in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from the director of the program to set up an interview for the end of the next day, I was interviewed by two people ( director and another teacher) Following the interview I was asked to give a demo class in 3 days. However, when I arrived home I received an email asking me to have the demo class on thursday instead of friday due to school being closed. I arrived at 8am for 8:30 demo class. I was told that students are testing and would not be available for my open class. Would I be willing to return at 11am. I did and was given the 10th graders rather then 8th graders. The materials I prepared were not age appropriate. Following the demo class which was observed by 4 people. I received feedback and was informed that I would receive a call for another interview with someone that was taking my immediate supervisor place while she was on maternal leave. He called and offered me either a phone interview on friday or face to face interview on monday. I choose the friday phone interview which consisted of him going through my entire resume and asking me to elaborate on my experiences. Following that I received an email with information about where to go to get my fingerprints. After that I received a call that I had a face to face with my immediate supervisor who is returning back from maternal. She called and I met with her and it seemed like she was bent on proving that she was the one in charge. Although she expressed that she heard lots of good things from everyone I got the impression that she was not impressed. I thought it was a greet, it turned out to be another interview. She never mentioned it, but at the end she was still interviewing, which was a different message that I got from everyone else I had been in communication with. She kept asking me what did this person and that person tell me. Well, you can guess what happened I received an email from her informing me that they decided to go with another candidate but that I was a very strong and promising candidate.

    Caseworker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at The Children's Aid Society in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had brief phone screening and in-person interview for one position, which mostly consisted of the interviewer describing the position and warning me about some of the challenges. Was then told to email if still interested, which I did. Never heard back. The next month another interviewer contacted me regarding a different position. Interviewed in a group setting. Again the interview mostly consisted of the interviewer trying to make sure we were prepared for the difficulties of the job. My boss later told me I was chosen partly because I demonstrated that I was "not afraid" of the job.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate, just accepted the offer, but I would recommend asking for a slightly higher salary. Can't hurt to ask, and even though there's a narrow range of compensation in this field, I do wonder if they would have gone a little higher if I'd asked.
