    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NHS Human Services (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They contacted me the day after I applied to schedule a phone interview. The interview was fairly basic and asked me a lot of questions that were on my application/resume. She then told me that the pay was $11 an hour and asked if that was okay. I replied "Unfortunately that is more than $3 less than I am getting now". She responded with "Ok, well this concludes this interview. Thank you." and hung up before I could say anything else.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NHS Human Services (Altoona, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They called me in for an interview. Then, it took them two weeks to get back to me after they told me they would get back to me in within two days of the interview. The interview seemed normal. They made it look like a really great job. I had called them three or four times between then and they did not respond to my calls. There was an overseeing hiring person who was different from the interviewer.

    I applied for a transfer within NHD from an outpatient therapist position to that of clinical supervisor using their on-line portal. The 7 candidates chosen to be interviewed were all known to the clinic’s director, as we were Master's level Fee-for-Service therapists within his local clinic. The position was posted in-house for approximately 3 weeks. Interviews were conducted over a 2 week period and the decision was made shortly thereafter. The candidate who was chosen had worked at the clinic one year longer than I and had more experience running therapy groups than I have.
