    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at YAI National Institute.

    Interview Details

    I sent in my resume to the YAI website and was contacted with a date and time for an interview a day later. The group interview was originally about 12 people but they separated us into a smaller group. My group had 4 people being interviewed and 3 interviewers. After the group interview, I was called out of the room and told I got the job. I know this is not typical and people usually sit through an extra round of interviews but my case was special because the interviewer said I stood out.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at YAI National Institute in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    D )The interview process was long. Most people including myself speak or meet with three to four people before they notify you of the job offer. The first interview I went on was a group interview where we went around the table and kind of had more like an open forum to answer questions about ourselves and what we would do in different scenarios. Once this is done I remember filling out a questionnaire and then speaking with the woman who was interviewing us one on one. She said the next step would be to meet the supervisor for the team I'd be working for (Day Hab). This interview was one on one and more formal. He asked about my previous skills and experience working with MR clients, my schooling, previous work history etc. A difficult situation I've encountered at work and hew I've handled it. Also where I saw myself in 5 years, which I hate. Then after him I met with the Director of the Day Hab Program and again it was formal and he asked what if questions and how would I handle certain situations involving MR clients....abuse, neglect, fraud, etc.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at YAI National Institute in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Nice-people but flakey, drawn-out and inconsiderate hiring process.
    Group interview- was ok but really a waste of time as hiring is site specific, and your there to be weeded out with trick questions.
    1st interview was great the AD was very nice.STAR questions, DD respect questions
    Tour - was ok, but i found that CTS w/ me was basically treating the DD Adults like dumb children. So i didn't get the whole "respect for the DD/MR" mantra YAI has when there is no reality to it
    IDK IF THEYRE BURNT OUT, but most the CTSs there didnt seem to have compassion for the DD population at all.but felt seem like babysitters rather trainers
    2nd was ok-more trick questions, more STAR questions . tour get evaluated
    3rd- HIPPA trick questions, background questions, director came off as cold and unapproachable. felt uneasy the entire interview. felt like i was crossed-out before i spoke and she just interviewed me as a formality.

    Interview Questions
    • They basically want to know that you considered the DD persons human being with rights.   Answer Question
