Program Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Employee
Las Vegas, NV

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at The MENTOR Network.

Interview Details – Sent resume in via email and received a call within 2 days. Was asked to come in for an interview in two days time, on a Saturday (that should have given me a clue). When I got there, I had to roam the office to find someone. As the place is a bit of a maze, I roamed for a while before I found the HR (NO HR Experience) person. Had interview with the LV director and HR person in informal setting (I was in a business suite, they were in jeans). Mostly they told me a very glorified version of the job and made it seem as if I would be doing the world a huge favor by taking care of these people. They literally had me in tears over the plight of these people and how as a part of the REM team, I could make a difference. Too bad it just wasn't true. I, and my fellow staff were nothing but warm bodies. The interview process was very easy and informal.

Interview Question – In your previous position working with children with mental issues, tell us one time when things didn't go like you expected.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They made an offer via phone call and I excepted.

Direct Support Professional Interview

Anonymous Employee
Eau Claire, WI

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at The MENTOR Network in February 2013.

Interview Details – I submitted an application online on a Saturday evening. By Monday morning I got a call for an interview. I interviewed first with a lady that I never saw again after this interview. She didn't give me much background on the job so I had to ask most of those questions. The interview lasted for about 30 minutes and then she said I would hear from them soon. I heard back after two weeks when I was just about to take an offer from another company. I set up a second interview at this time. I arrived at the interview and after just a few short questions she offered me the job. I started in office training the next week and then was in the home training later the same week.

Interview Question – If you were helping a client brush their teeth in the bathroom and started getting upset and tried to hit or bite you how would you handle this?   Answer Question

Direct Support Professional Interview

Direct Support Professional

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The MENTOR Network.

Interview Details – I received a call from HR shortly after filling out an online application. We scheduled the interview for the following week. 1 hour before the interview I was called by HR and told that they just wanted to do a phone interview. I accepted. She asked me 5 questions and then hired me on the spot. When I asked about pay she said she could not disclose that information at this time as she was not sure where I would be placed. I accepted the position and had training. I asked my supervision via email as well as HR again at training what the pay would be. Both times they beat around the bush and would not give me a solid answer. Finally, 3 hours after my orientation my supervisor called and said she could offer 8 dollars an hour. I rejected the offer and told her that would not meet my needs. She said ok thanks and the conversation ended.

Interview Question – Name something that happened on the job that you wish could have gone differently.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Pay was extremely low for the demands of the job, communication was terrible, I felt like I was a number, they hired me over the phone without even meeting me first. Not my first choice in employment. I certainly hope they treat their consumers better than they treat their employees. I was curious as to why they had so many job listings. Now I know.
