    Clinician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at South Bay Community Services.

    Interview

    The interviewer e-mailed two hours before to confirm a phone interview. I confirmed and she replied that she will call me at that time and is looking forward to speaking with me. I waited for thirty minutes. and no call..an hour..no call..it has been two weeks and still have not heard anything. She did not e-mail or call to apologize or reschedule. Very unprofessional. I have heard that this agency is unorganized but I was giving them the benefit of the doubt. They proved to me why they have this reputation.

    Clinician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Worcester, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at South Bay Community Services (Worcester, MA).

    Interview

    Admin was disorganized. Waited in a room for over 20 minutes. While waiting- I heard a staff member yell at a child- mind you a toddler. Discussed how great they were for three hours (red flag) and barely asked me any questions. Laughed when I required they pay more than 30,000 even though I have a Masters- and yet told me I would need to take on at least a dozen clients. I figured out they were not ethical before the interview ended. Towards the end of the interview- the interviewer walked me aroudn the facility and began bad-mouthing one of their clients-again- a toddler- with a lead teacher.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at South Bay Community Services (Brockton, MA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I skipped the traditional interviewing process due to a networking referral. I was given a lot of information about benefits and "work culture" and social aspects but not about the company or the actual position. be proactive by asking for specifics about the job and read everything very carefully. ie. health insurance structure

    Treatment Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at South Bay Community Services (Lowell, MA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Was called up a day after applying. Friend HR recruiter guy, then was scheduled an interview after being asked several questions. Upon arriving, there was one friendly receptionist, and then finally I meet the interviewer. Seems emotionless and cold, didn't seem friendly at all. Was introduced to another member of the team. She was friendly, but seemed to have no say in the matter. After the interview was over, which ended rather quickly and the guy seemed eager to get me out of the door. Gave me a cold goodbye and said he would contact me in a few days. Never did, and I had to call back. The same guy, with the same emotionless, unfriendly tone, said HR would get back to me. So they did shortly after, and was rejected. It ended up being a learning experience for my first job interview, which was a necessary factor.
