    I applied online. I interviewed at Volunteers of America (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was 6th time applying on line, and each time I got email response bu t with no interview invite. So the 7th time, I got a interview date in which i had revived a second interview . They asked a racists question, they asked if i could speak SPANISH! I was taken back by the question, and tell you the truth I think that was the reason I was invited to a second interview. But I don't speak Spanish....do people a color a favor don't assume that people who have dark hair and dark skin speak Spanish. This was a very racists interview.
