    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City Year (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    Submit application and statement, phone interview, tough questions. First phone interview was not as tough as the second one. Second one was with someone higher up in the company. Both people were very nice. Asked about experience, weaknesses, background, etc. I don't remember that much because it's been years since I was at City Year. Glassdoor is making me submit a city where the interview took place but the whole thing was done entirely over the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember verbatim but it was something along the lines of how do we know you won't quit?   Answer Question
