    Workforce Development Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northern Virginia Family Service in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a woman that seemed very interested in my resume. It seemed to go well, until I didn't have an update for about a month. I decided to ask about the status of my interview and decision and did not get a response until a day after I saw the same position listed under volunteer work. Keep in mind, I didn't apply for a volunteer position. All of the sudden the woman DECIDED to respond to me and tell me that have chosen another candidate. Well, Im sure they actually found a volunteer instead of someone to get paid for the job.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Northern Virginia Family Service.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone, and it was very brief. The second interview was a face-to-face interview...more of a Q&A. The third was a mock training interview where the interviewers posed as trainees, and I was the trainer. The 2nd and 3rd interviews were more of a panel/ group style.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Northern Virginia Family Service (Oakton, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    3 part process. One 1:1, one management interview, and one group interview with a parent. Each round took over 1 work week to hear back from. I felt like the process was very drawn out, but interviewing was around the holidays so it was harder to fit it in with their schedule.

    Mental Health Counselor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northern Virginia Family Service (Falls Church, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It took too long to be hired after the initial interview. I wish they had asked me better questions to determine ahead of time that I had all of the qualifications they were looking for because I applied for one position and they offered me another one which they then accused me of not being well-prepared enough for. I think if they had approached the interviewing process in a more organized way (i.e. determining ahead of time that I did not have the qualifications they were looking for in the initial position I was applying for), it would have saved a lot of wasted time and money.
