    Youth Care Worker I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brooklyn, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Boys Town (Brooklyn, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was great the first part was an online interview, which was great because I was able to prepare for each question and there was no pressure to make me nervous. Once I passed the second interview I was called in for a brief in person interview where I was asked questions and given scenerios of how I would react with certain situations with the teens.

    Youth Care Worker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oviedo, FL
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Family Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boys Town (Omaha, NE) in March 2016.

    Interview

    After applying for the position, we heard back within 24 hours. Then we were sent the information to do our first interview two days after that. Once we'd completed the first interview (a video session), we were contacted within a couple of days to do a phone interview over a conference call. The conference call was yesterday, but we haven't heard back about it, yet! The talent acquisition agent (Brittani) was very friendly and helpful.

    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boys Town (Omaha, NE) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was pleasant--very casual. There was a video interview with a set of questions having to do with how you would respond to the youth in various situations. The video was well received we thought. The recruiter wanted us to go to the position in Omaha--we were pushing for Orange County. A glitch with my husband came up with his past that was almost 9 years old and then the conversations were abruptly stopped. They did not let us know why and we never thought an issue that old would hinder but it did and so there has to be a clean record completely --they tell you on the application not to put those things down. We werent hiding anything. We have been working with youth for years

    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.
