    I have been working at Volunteers of America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I'm always thrilled and happy to see a client express happiness and excitement for something that I have helped them get .It's what we call "why I do what I do".

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is keeping staff for all the shifts and homes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It helps many times to listen to what the staff is saying sometimes.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Volunteers of America.

    Interview Details

    There was one interview and the program manager was present, along with a case manager and a client. Each took turns asking questions from the same sheet of questions. The questions were thought provoking. Some asked things like, what does advocacy mean to you? Have you been on a coalition? And others asked you to describe how you would respond to different scenarios. Some of the scenarios include a youth tells you they are pregnant. Another is that a youth tells you that they think they might be gay. How would you respond?

    Interview Questions
    • I think that the most difficult questions were the ones that ask you how you would respond to various scenarios.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I was unable to negotiate the pay. Volunteers of America is a non-profit and so they are limited on what they are able to pay their employees. You really have to be passionate about working with the demographic, and not money motivated.
