    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Central City Concern (Portland, OR) in June 2016.

    Interview

    A bit unorganized, and generic questions. Would suggest allowing panel to ask followup questions, and allow some experience based questions. Overall, it was a very good experience and very happy with the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Central City Concern (Portland, OR) in May 2016.

    Interview

    This was an interview at the Eastside Concern location for the DV department. The interview started late, and it was very unorganized. There's a panel interview with 3-4 other clinicians and they take turns asking you general questions from the paper, and also improvise with random questions.

    Interview Questions

    • If we were to tell you that the second interview was you coming in to run a 2 hour group with DV male perpetrators, supervised, without assistance, without material, and with real clients, would you do it?   1 Answer

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Central City Concern (Portland, OR) in April 2011.
