    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Volunteers of America (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    First candidates are asked to complete a Care Profiler assessment. Then they are asked to fill out a standard online job application. I'm familiar with using personality inventories as part of the corporate hiring process. What was strange is they then asked me interview questions that were generated solely on my questionnaire results. The manager didn't ask a single question of her own. Not even small talk or trying to get to know me as an individual or as an applicant. Very impersonal process for a person-centered organization.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about a time when I made critical decisions with little direction.   Answer Question
