    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Court Appointed Special Advocates (Auburn, CA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    It was very casual and they seemed eager to bring me on board. At the time the Director was very concerned about having a Hispanic case manager, she felt that the program needed it. There was a high number of children coming from second generation Mexican families. She wanted someone who understood the culture.

After one month, I followed up to learn they hired internally.

    Executive Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Court Appointed Special Advocates (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Multiple interviews including two by phone, two in person. The final one was a panel interview with three executive leaders. After the third interview, a 90 day plan was requested.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult aspect of the interview was the fourth and final. I wasn't prepared with information in advance about who would be there or that they expected me to give a presentation. We skyped with two executives in another city and the connection and set up was distracting.   2 Answers

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Court Appointed Special Advocates (Baton Rouge, LA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The Executive Director called me about 3 days after I submitted my resume and cover letter on Indeed. We scheduled an interview for the following week.

    I met with the Director and she was extremely nice. She was socially "conscious" and very open. I appreciated that. She was transparent throughout the interview. She also told me to email her the extra things I left out of my portfolio.

    I emailed her the things I left out of my portfolio. She followed up with a thank you. However, I requested an update the following week and she didn't respond to my email. I felt like that was extremely unprofessional and disregarding.

    Overall, I enjoyed the interview, though. I believe the organization practices what it preaches and that was the main reason I applied.

    Volunteer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Court Appointed Special Advocates.

    Interview

    This volunteer powered organization has plenty of good points. The interview and acceptance for volunteers has a lengthy interview and background check. The purpose is to keep children safe. The interview by the group of social workers who work at CASA is pretty friendly and yet still kind of tense due to the nature of the questions asked. They often are trying to see if you are suited to that type of work because it is so sensitive.

    Interview Questions

    • Asking why someone would want to help a child in foster care seems like both the easiest and hardest for me because it is an emotional thing to think about children being removed from families due to abusive situations.   Answer Question
