    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Youth Villages.

    Interview Details

    I was called about 2 days after I applied online by a woman in the Tennessee area.She gave me a few options as to what job I was interested since I applied for more than one. She asked me basic questions about my experience and then gave me a scenario to answer. The scenario was about conflict and she wanted to know how I would have handled it.

    She then stated the hours and salary. Afterwards she stated I may get a call back within 7 days once she sends over my info to the hiring manager for the position. I got a call back a few days later from the hiring manager. That was last week. Today I will be interviewing over the phone.

    Behavioral Youth Counselor (Teacher Counselor) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Youth Villages.

    Interview Details

    Several days after applying online, I received a short phone interview. It was very relaxed and simple questions such as any experience I had in the field, etc. Afterwards I was asked when I would be available for a face to face interview.

    1 week later I met with my interviewer. I showed up 15 minutes early, yet my interviewer was roughly 15 minutes late. He was very casually dressed, and the interview was not at all what I expected. The whole experience was very unprofessional, as he would constantly look at his phone or mess with his computer, showing little interest.

    After the interview I set up a date less than a week later for an orientation (walk about) at the group home I would be working at. Over all the experience went well.

    The final step was a second interview, where I was asked more scenario questions, focusing more on my willingness to physically detain an uncompliant youth. Once again the interview was unprofessional, and the interviewer seemed distracted and uninterested. Afterwards I was told he would call me later that evening to let me know if I received the job or not......never heard from him again.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Youth Villages.

    Interview Details

    The first step in the process was a short phone interview with a recruiter where I was asked about my experience working in mental health and particularly about my experience with crisis management. The recruiter typed notes to record my answers and told me that I may or may not be contacted for the next part of the interview process. A few days later, I was contacted by a program director at the Germaine Lawrence campus and scheduled an in-person interview. I interviewed with one manager for about 40 minutes and then did a brief classroom observation. After the observation, I interviewed with another manager for about 45 minutes.

    Specialized Crisis Counselor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Youth Villages.

    Interview Details

    There was a telephone 'screening interview,' followed by in person interviews with local management. The telephone interview was weird! The interviewer was constantly pausing without explanation. I understand 'pausing' to be an interview tactic, but this was beyond that. The interviews left me with a strong impression that the company is a tad disorganized. I think most non-profits are the same way though, so I didn't draw any bias from that.

    • They present scenarios during the interview and ask what you would do in that scenario.   View Answer
