    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at YAI National Institute (Garfield, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    First I met with HR person and the head of the department. Interview went well, I like them and it seemed they liked me as well. Few days after the interview I received a call from HR, he told me that they really liked me but they wanted someone with more experience. I was then contacted by a different department. That interview went well, but I showed not a lot of interest in that job. I had to shadow somebody for a day. At the end they told me I has the experience they were looking for but they also said I was too young for the position.
