I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at YAI National Institute.
I applied online but after a few weeks of not hearing a call-back , I decided to email a person within HR for a follow-up. Nethenless to say it worked and I obtained an interview. The interview went well basic questions about the job itself, the tasks, and my experience. After the interview was over I was told to wait until the following Tuesday for a response if not to follow up. Tuesday comes and nothing, I follow-up on Thursday and no reply. I wait until the next week and follow up twice email and by phone , also no reply. It is unfortunate to not receive a yes or no response. Tip to YAI Network be a little more conscientious with your applicants on the interview process, a simple email staring "we decided to move with another candidate" it's sufficient enough to let people move on.

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Queens Village, NY).
The interview was first a group interview with about 11 people including myself. I was very new to me never experience an group interview before. They asked us a lot of questions and did a lot of icebreakers. Also we did some role play and act out daily things we would do if hired. Afterwards we had our one on one interviews that was very intense as well, more personal questions were asked and more role play.

I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (New York, NY).
I first met with the HR specialist who screens RN candidates first before meeting with the director of nursing and nurse manager. The HR person asked several situational questions and was very informative on the company's details. I made it pass the HR round and interviewed with the DON and nurse manager in a 2:1 interview format. The DON was very pleasant and welcoming. They reviewed my resume/experience/certifications etc. and asked me specific questions about my work experience.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Garfield, NJ) in May 2015.
A group interview then a one on one. It seemed like they really wasn't interested in doing the one on one to really find out who you are as a person. The group interview was just a way of them letting you know about the company and that's all I got out of it. It was unorganized and It felt like time wasted. They I may get a call in 2 weeks for a second interview.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (New York, NY) in March 2015.
A very relaxed group interview where you were to tell the group a bit about yourself. Following a series of questions (mostly about how you would react in certain scenarios), you would then be taken in for a one on one interview where you discuss the position, the benefits, the salary, etc. Then you are told to await a call for a second interview.
