    Case Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Archdiocese of New York (New York, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    First met with HR which was a standard interview, then met with three regional director/supervisors who asked questions that were more specific to the work. Keep in mind that there are many politics within the organization, so you may have been a stellar candidate even if they did not make an offer. Contacts matter, so if you know anyone who knows any of the hiring managers, have them make a call for you. A large percentage of people are hired because of a personal referral, mostly because the hiring managers wear many hats and prefer to hire someone who has been recommended personally.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Archdiocese of New York (New York, NY).

    Interview

    After applying through linkedin, I was contacted by a third party with a series of questions to answer before securing an interview. They ranged from asking how I stay organized to my experience gaining buy in from stakeholders. I was soon set up to have a facetime interview which was mostly just the woman telling me more about the position and asking general questions. A week or so later I scheduled an interview in the office with 2 of the directors who were both very nice and welcoming; it was a standard interview there were no questions that I felt were out of the blue.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Archdiocese of New York (New York, NY) in April 2018.

    Interview

    It seemed a little odd due to the fact I had to prepare a mock presentation and was interviewed by the entire marketing team which consisted of five people (two in their 50's, one in her 40's, another international person in his 20's, and a girl fresh out of college) though only one was asking the questions, I had to address the whole bunch... The questions seemed basic and simple (like they were being read from a wikihow document) and they didn't seem to know how to react to my answers (probably because they didn't understand social, and weren't sure if I was right or not). Overall it was very unprofessional and they seemed overwhelmed and unaware.

    Disaster Case Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Archdiocese of New York (New York, NY) in August 2012.

    Interview

    My first interview was in New York City at the head quarters which is a huge, black, glass building. When I arrived, I was directed to the HR floor, was greeted by the receptionist there and was asked to fill out an application. I then proceeded to take a Microsoft Excel and Word proficiency test. The application was fairly short and to the point, asking basic application information. The computer proficiency tests inquired for basic knowledge of the programs and were easy enough for someone who has had little to no training in them, like myself. Upon completion of the tests, I was warmly greeted by the HR Generalist, who seemed very happy to see me and guided me to her office. The interview process went very quickly. She asked me why I was seeking to work for Catholic Charities and we discussed my passion for my faith and my volunteer work. The interview became more of a process of getting to know me, than asking difficult, cookie-cutter questions. By the end of the interview, we were both laughing and I felt very comfortable for an interview. The HR Generalist informed me that I would be receiving a call in the coming weeks for a second interview that would likely take place in Poughkeepsie.
    The second interview went much like the first. The building was an average size brick building in the heart of Poughkeepsie. Upon arriving I was greeted by the wonderful receptionist who contacted the one of the directors of the DCM program there. She came to greet me and took me to her office where we talked more about my volunteer experience and my faith. She explained a little bit about what the Disaster Case Management program was and what the position entailed. Upon the closing of the interview, I was once again informed that I would receive a call for a third interview!

    The third interview was with the Client Services Manager and another supervisor for the program. This interview was very informal. At that point the information that I was being given was all I needed to know for starting the job unofficially (because HR had not officially offered it to me yet) They told me where I would be reporting to, who my supervisor would be, and how the job would work.

    Over all, the process was long and tedious, but worth it nonetheless!
