    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Guidance Center (Southgate, MI) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Two people sat there and asked questions off of a piece of paper. They never once varied from the script. They looked at each other but I don't remember them looking at me at all when I was answering. And it was funny because the person before me walked out with a bemused look on her face. Part way through the interview, I understood why. I wish I had time to ask her about it before I went in but the male half came out to get me right away.

    Interview Questions

    • I honestly don't remember a specific one. They really were that generic. I'm sure there was something about my biggest accomplishment or the last compliment I received from my supervisor. None of it was actually about me. It was all about what I had done for the previous places where I was employed. The male who was a new head supervisor for that department was actually really cold. I think the female manager would have been friendlier if he hadn't been there.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Guidance Center (Southgate, MI).

    Interview

    I accepted an interview with the company only to be told once I arrived at the interview that my degree was not in the field they were looking for and that the interview should have not be scheduled. This was after I spent nearly 20 minutes completing a paper application and background check forms. Then I was told to check back on the site for other job opening. I said "No thank you."

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at The Guidance Center (Southgate, MI) in November 2008.

    Interview

    The interview was straight forward and fairly informal. I had been recommended for the job by someone on their board of directors which significantly helped with getting my foot in the door. The agency is professional but with an air of informality. One of the best features of working here is having a flex schedule.

    Negotiation

    I was offered $40,000, which was already higher than what they would normally offer someone with my degree (MSW) with no formal full-time work experience post-graduation and I was able to negotiate an additional $3,000 because I had a lot of work experience prior to graduate school, and I had a lot of experience with evaluation and report writing during graduate school.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Guidance Center in October 2009.

    Interview

    It was a simple one on one interview. I met with the supervisor who went over teh details for pay. After we discussed the percentage of pay, he described the clientele. Basically regulary insurance clients, adults, families and children.

    It was simple, he was nice. Unfortunately it is contractual, so what you bill , you get paid.
