    I have been working at Michigan Works! Berrien-Cass-Van Buren

    Pros

    We are a very progressive, non-profit workforce development organization that provides free services to employers, jobseekers, and youth in Southwest Michigan. We've gone above and beyond to be a catalyst for economic health and community change and it's very rewarding work!

    Cons

    We change a lot and it's hard to keep up sometimes. We some times struggle to make sure everyone throughout the organization is well informed. We are trying to address these problems, but it definitely takes a lot of time and effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should continue to be open to postive and negative feedback from staff at all levels of the organization, and make sure to respond.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Michigan Works! Berrien-Cass-Van Buren in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call from a Staff Coordinator about one week before the actual interview date. She schedule the day, date, time and location of the interview. My interview was in the afternoon. I do not recall the exact time. However, what I do recall is having to wait about 15 minutes after my scheduled interview time. I interviewed in a panel with 4 people, 2 males and 2 females. The 2 males were in management positions within the company. It consists of general interview questions that were more behaviorally based. The interview took 30 minutes. After the panel interview I was asked to complete a personality test and also a skill assessment on the computer.
