    Direct Care Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Interview was long and with the director only. He showed me the whole facility and explained how a lot of things worked. After two hours we get to the silly part 16 hour days very little time off no overtime at 34k which is beyond ridiculous. Best part seem like spending all day with the kids outside would whip you in shape.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Eckerd Youth Alternatives (South Clewiston, FL).

    Interview

    Went to camp, was introduced to the group, shadowed counselors for two days, had in-depth interview with both Directors on realities and "grit" of the position including the 24-hour/day-5 or more day workweek. Was told that the position is THE MOST IMPORTANT position in the entire agency. Was definitely explained the gravity of the position. Was told that being a Chief meant getting a new family and that the more you put in to the family, the more you get out. I was told it was the most tiring, exhausting, physically demanding position I would ever have, but if I could do it and excel at ANYTHING. ANYWHERE.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Eckerd Youth Alternatives.

    Interview

    Multiple Phone interviews, followed by an invitation to visit the site. The phone screening is basically questions about whether you can physically and emotionally handle the job. While on site you are placed with someone doing the job so as to see if it is a good fit. It's a somewhat lengthy process, but good to see in person.

    Interview

    In person interview at one of the camps. I spent some time with two different groups of children in their camps. I also joined them at meal time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Eckerd Youth Alternatives in March 2014.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview, then an in-person interview on-site. They will put you in a group for a few hours, and then ask the kids if they have anything to say about you once you leave. Don't worry, the organization is desperate for employees, and they are flexible on your qualifications.

    Interview Questions

    • They will just ask your thoughts on your time in the program for your on-site interview.   Answer Question
