Interviews at First Step House
Interviews for Top Jobs at First Step House
Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Step House (Salt Lake City, UT) in Jun 2020
A basic outline is a phone interview, followed by a first interview with recruiters, then a second interview with the recruiters and your potential supervisor. It's definitely not the easiest interview I've had in my life. During my interview for Housing Support I had no idea if I would get the job or not. But it's incredibly effective at getting the right people for the job, and that's what they want.
- Various experience based questions. Various behavioral questions. What mental health means to me.
Anonymous Interview Candidate
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at First Step House in Aug 2019
I had a phone interview with the main recruiter for First Step House. She called 5 minutes late, seemed distracted, ADMITTED to getting distracted by an email at one point, and seemed uninterested through the whole interview. After asking questions about my background, interest in the position, etc, she asked why I left my last job. I told her why I left, and she seemed very skeptical, and seemed to want a deeper explanation or some drama along with it. She asked about it 4 or 5 times, asking basically the same question, not believing my answer (that I left my job because I wanted to grow my career in HR, and I didn't have the opportunity to do that there). Despite my qualifications, she seemed to ignore them all and got very hung up on that one point, which I feel is definitely a form of interviewer bias. She ended the interview and I never heard anything from her again.
Just curious if there are others out there with licenses in different health care fields? And if so how do you present your credentials on a company website or business cards? I am a registered pharmacist (30 years) and certified mental health counselor ( will be licensed this Spring). I am currently practicing exclusively as a counselor but may explore other options in the future that incorporate both fields of experience. Should I represent that I’m licensed/certified in both fields?
Hi I am an RN but looking for a 100% remote job due to medical reasons where I am not on the phone much. For over 15 ￼years I was a Program Manager for a health plan. I've recently got my CPHQ ￼and wondering what else I can do outside of managed care. I feel like another sector such as a large healthcare system, pharma or biotech company maybe more rewarding,. I do have my Masters Degree from a school of Publc Health. Other than searching Program / Project Manager what am I not thinking of?

Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at First Step House (Salt Lake City, UT) in Sep 2011
I found a job opening on the D.W.S. website for a Line Cook position at First Step House, and sent an email to Rodney Symes, the Director of Operations stating where I have been, what I have been doing (Running the Odyssey House kitchen), and that I wanted to be considered for the position. It took around a month of run arounds before I finally got word that I was to be interviewed. The interview went fine, and I told them about my criminal background and being in treatment myself at Odyssey House. And that night I was called by Rodney and offered a position as a Line Cook.
- The explanation of my background was hard for me, because I didn't want to be disqualified because of it.
