    The hiring process is fairly average. The first interview is a group interview, most of the questions are easy. I recommend the interviewee to do some research on the organization.

    Interview Questions

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at YAI National Institute.

    Interview Details

    Group interview in a large conference type room. It was laid back and conversational, very low pressure. However, the important thing to remember is that you're still in an interview and need to stand out among the rest. Be sure to be thoughtful while answering questions. After the group interview there was a one-on-one where there were some more simple questions about preferred location and some other logistics. Got referred to a pre-school where I worked for a year. All in all a very good interview experience.

    Interview Questions
    • There was nothing confusing or misleading. Most questions were posed to the group with an opportunity to volunteer answers. Some questions were directed individually for varying view points. If you have a passion/interest in working with children with special needs then the questions shouldn't be difficult to answer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked what we would do if someone refused to take medication. They also asked what we knew about the company- how many people the company serves, what states the company is located in.   Answer Question
