    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bowery Residents Committee (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    A month after applying - a brief phone interview followed by an in-person interview with a representative from HR on the 12th floor. Weeks later, an interview with the Assistant Director of the program. This interview was thorough and intense.

    Expect 2-3 months to complete hiring process, as BRC will follow up with each reference and almost every detail on your resume. Their HR department is fairly slow at pushing people through the process.

    Interview Questions

    • Began with why do you want to work here/in this field, followed by a few questions regarding previous work experience, goals, and qualifications. Next was several role-playing/situation/"What would you do.." questions in crisis situations, situations with clients or coworkers. Also questions regarding actual times you've reacted in such situations in previous positions. The initial HR interview asks questions regarding the BRC company as a whole, so do your homework.   Answer Question
