    Advice to Management

    Stability, get focused

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Eckerd Youth Alternatives (Boomer, NC).


    In person interview at one of the camps. I spent some time with two different groups of children in their camps. I also joined them at meal time. I had pretty limited interactions with the kids, mostly it was with the staff. Everyone was very friendly and encouraging. I had a chance to speak with several other counselor/teachers, and stay the night in the counselor/teacher's time off house (company owned house that staff share as part of employment).
