    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Children's Aid Society (Bronx, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I received an email to come in for an interview at a local school. We interviewed on a couch and I was asked questions specific to the role like if I am proficient is spreadsheets like Excel. We spoke about my past job experiences that relate to the role and that was pretty much it. No personality questions or anything like that. She said she would get in touch the beginning to the next week but she didn't. I had to email her 2 weeks later, then call again 1 week after that to find out I was not selected.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Children's Aid Society (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Patrick and Royivia for a position on their team. They were very easygoing, comfortable to speak with. We even ended up joking about a couch in the office that they wanted to turn into a creative space. Oh, and they gave me some chocolate covered almonds that happened to be on the table, so that was nice of them. Then I was moved along to Anthony Ramos's office, where the questions were a bit tougher and more technical.

    I applied for the position through their website and received a call back the following day. It was a brief phone screening where they asked about my most recent experience and what they were looking for. I was told if they are interested they'll contact me back..no contact so I am assuming that I didn't make it pass the screening process.
