    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Boys Town.

    Interview

    My process was painless from beginning to end. It began with an effortless online “assessment”, which in my opinion was majority common sense material. This was followed my a refreshing phone interview and ended with a 2 on 1 interview with a couple of Boys Towns higher ups. They were very genuine and set a tone with positive energy.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Boys Town (Omaha, NE) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Within days after submitting an online application, I was asked to submit a video interview. I had two days to complete the online interview. Although I could practice with some standard questions, the actual interview offered spontaneous questions with only 30 seconds to formulate a reply. There were 14 questions, some of which required a multiple choice answer, some a typed answer, and others a verbal answer. It has now been over a week and I have not heard from anyone about the status of my application/interview.

    Behavioral Health Technician Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Boys Town (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    It was a little confusing. The interviewer didn't really describe the reward system before telling me to role play it with her. It would be more helpful to explain what the reward system is and why it is set up that way before trying to role play scenarios.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boys Town.

    Interview

    Online video interview. They record your answers and then review them later. You have a few test tries on the answers, but it is all very quick. After the video is sent and done you will receive a phone call from HR. I received a call for a second interview in person.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Boys Town (Oviedo, FL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was an online interview. It was basically like I was recording myself answering questions. It was a little awkward at first. The question appears on screen and you have 30 seconds to think of an answer before it stars recording.

    Youth Care Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oviedo, FL

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boys Town (Oviedo, FL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was a digital one where you're asked a stock question and given time to respond. I actually found this harder than the face-to-face that's done for the second interview. Not to many curve balls though, just giving you situations and looking for the most appropriate reaction. Stay calm, describe the youth's behavior and offer more measured options and you're golden. Second interview was more direct, practical and logistical stuff.
