    Asked many situation questions with dealing with children of special needs. Many hours of training will have to be done before actual hiring. This jobs requires many hours in close proximity with special needs children. There are going to be times when I would have to work week ends and holidays. Children with special needs have to be monitored constantly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Children's Village (Dobbs Ferry, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and two days later received a phone call to come in for a group interview. When it was time for the interview, there were eight people all being interviewed at the same time. We were asked a question and all eight of us had to go around the room and answer the same question. It honestly was the strangest interview I had ever been to because instead of asking each person a different question we all heard each others responses and almost everyone piggy backed off of each other. A day later, I received an email telling me to get finger printed and submit references. After I did that, I received a phone call from HR offering me a position.

    Easy, basic questions about dealing with kids.
    They wanted to finger print me before hand, actually.
    cant remember, i think it was interview, then finger print. then more forms. maybe vice versa. it was a lot though. it took me only two weeks though, where as it took others about two months for the whole process. they also drug test. and orientation. during the two week orientation you get to work first hand with the kids to see if you ACTUALLY want to work there. i know two ppl decided to leave the job alone during the orientation.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Children's Village.

    Interview

    My interview process was slightly unique, I met directly with the unit director who asked me to provide a sample of my writing. After which he asked about my work experience. It was very brief and relaxed however I was able to sense the intensity of how things could get on campus as an officer came in to arrest a child.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The Children's Village (Richmond Hill, GA).

    Interview

    The director at the time was very unorganized, so it took some time before hearing back. Interview was laid back. There was a scenarios sheet I had to fill out. It basically asked how you'd handle certain situations in the classroom.

    The interview was held while walking around the building. Since they liked me, I was offered to come back on another day to spend time in a classroom. Both were laid back. Just be aware of the hand washing policies and you'll be fine.
