    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at YMCA (Rockford, IL).

    Interview

    You are asked to attend a group interview first and then apply for open positions following the interview. Then if you are called for an open position you applied to you have to attend a 1 on 1 interview. The 1 on 1 Interview was brief, involved a lot of behavioral/situation questions

    Interview Questions

    • Q: If a child is scared of the water, how do you help to alleviate that fear?   Answer Question
