    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs (Eau Claire, WI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was called in for an interview over the phone. The interview was pretty basic with questions like "why do you want this job" "tell me about yourself" etc. The majority of the interview was spent going over how things work there, and a tour of the facility. She then described the job and what it was going to be like to see if I was still interested.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs.

    Interview

    Very quick almost too speedy. The interview felt rushed and there wasn't really a formal offer made just kind of assumed that I got it. Afterwards I began on boarding right away and was thrown in with absolutely zero training.

    Camp Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brampton, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs (Brampton, ON (Canada)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Long process. Questions were suitable for the job. But the interviewers had poor communication, and interpersonal skills. Very sarcastic and rude in their approach. If you are applying to this job I don't recommend it if you are looking for a good pay or proper training. They we're suppose to provide first aid training to staff and behavioural training and until this day they haven't done so. They are very behind.

    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I found the interview process unreasonable. After a phone interview, I was given three days to review a poorly written 20 page document on their strategic plan and then write a 10 minute presentation on my recommendations, and review and provide feedback to their newsletter. The interview consisted of the presentation, an hour or so of behavioral interviewing and then a forty minute writing exercise. I think two of the three (presentation, newsletter, and/or writing sample) would have been a bit extreme, but acceptable. On a good note, it did help me understand that culture at BCGA was not what I was looking for.

    Academy Services Tutor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Boys & Girls Clubs (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Relatively a long process in relation to the low hours and pay for the position. 2 to 3 days after submitting my CV, I got a call from the company asking for a phone interview. After the phone interview, I had to go in for a test--50 multiple choice questions on literacy (basic reading comprehension, spelling, and grammar) , algebra (basic algebra, would be helpful if you recap some of the very basic formulas) and ability to assist (hypothetical situation questions)--You have to get 85% in each part in order for you to be qualified for the job. If you don't pass, you are automatically disqualified for the position. After passing the test, I went to another location to have an in-person interview. The interviewer briefly explained about the services and duties for the position and went through a set of questions. She read each question and wrote down what I said. I wished there was more natural conversation during this process. The process felt really robotic and felt under pressure because you do all the talking.
