    Residential Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broomfield, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health (Broomfield, CO) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and was contacted for an interview within a few days. The first interview is one on one. Then you are invited back for a one hour observation and peer interview (unpaid). Afternoon and evening shifts for full time is 36 hours. Overnights are 40 hours. I received a call within a couple of days with an offer. It's 14.50 per hour whether you have a college degree or not. The person I was shadowing told me she had her nose broken by a client a few weeks ago. $14.50 is not enough for all the residential counselors have to deal with.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health (Hillsborough, NJ) in July 2017.

    Lots of back and forth calling and emailing to set up interviews. Starts with a phone interview which is just a basic screening. If the hiring recruiter sees you fit for the job they will schedule you for an in person interview at one of the group homes (depending on the location you applied for). If the in person interview goes well, the paper work you fill out will be sent to the hiring office. They will do a back ground check and call references. If all checks out they call with an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health (Westminster, CO) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email back a couple of days later asking me a few questions about why I was interested in the position. After this, I had a 10-minute phone screening that mostly involved HR telling me more about the position and giving me an opportunity to ask questions. I was called back for an in-person interview the following week, which lasted about 20 minutes and was a typical one-on-one interview. After this interview, they had me complete a 2-hour observation on one of the units to see how I interacted with the kids and to give me a preview of what the job would be like. They then completed a reference check, a background check, and a drug test and offered me the position the following week.

    Therapist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health (Scottsdale, AZ) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was straight forward and casual, the questions came from a prewritten packet. Neither of the interviewers were overly formal or serious, and explained their agency in depth when I asked questions about it. They directly talked to me about pay afterwards, so I had a pretty good idea they would offer me the position. There were a few different interruptions during the process.
