    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at YMCA.

    Interview Details

    I applied in person and was told that I needed to show up to a group interview. There were about 30 other people who attended the group interview all applying for different positions; the directors from each department were there. We were asked to draw pictures and answer questions like "If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be?" After the group interview, I was called to go back for a one-on-one interview where I met with the community director. I get that it's an entry-level job, but I don't get how some of the questions have to do with work performance at all.
