I applied online and 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 Question – It was a HIPPA question regarding Developmentally Disabled adults however I don't remember the specifics. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None really. All new employees got the same pay around 27K
I applied online and 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 Question – They basically want to know that you considered the DD persons human being with rights. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at YAI National Institute in August 2012.
Interview Details – I met with Steven and while he was a nice person, he seemed more nervous than I was. He asked pretty basic questions: why do you think this job is a good fit? what do you know about YAI? All in all, it was a typical interview.
Interview Question – "Would you be willing to work in Brooklyn?" If I desired the other borough's position, I would have applied to it. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at YAI National Institute in May 2012.
Interview Details – Applied online. Received a call to come into YAI Headquarters in Manhattan. Received an email a day before, with an application to be filled prior hand. Came into a group interview with other people, some with BA and AA degrees, some with non. Interviewer was very friendly, and she asked us behavioral based questions and our opinions on person with disabilities. She then told us that she will refer us to a Supervisor for position in which she thought we qualified for; that is if she referred us at all. The interviewer steered us to the correct answers and they are basically looking for candidates that will treat their adult population with dignity/respect.
Although I applied to Direct Service Provider, i was referred to a slightly more competitive position. A few days I was called in by a supervisor at one of their day facilities.It was a more detailed interview about my life and opinions of the DD/MR population.Told about the salary and more. After the interview i was invited to a day visit to see how things are conducted on daily basis. There people there have a very good spirit and the population is a lot more friendly and intelligent than you think. After the visit i was called in the office by the supervisor and was given the dreaded "we'll get back to you" after we are done interviewing. Still hoping and praying, for a offer, but I hope i can get at least a non select letter due to the amount of time put in the interview process.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at YAI National Institute in November 2009.
Interview Details – The interview process I would say was very behavioral. Some of the questions that were asked past experiences about certain situations that happened while working at previous positions that I have held that were similar to the position I was applying for. Other's were in the group were asked similar questions. The interview was about an hour long.
Interview Question – Baseball or bat, which one are you? View Answer

Interview Details – Talking to the interviewer felt comfortable since everyone was there for the same thing. Some people were more laid back then others which gave me an advantage to express my interest in the position. The Interview asked questions like "why do you want to work with YAI?" and how I would handle certain decision making with situations that were given to me.
