    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Everyone was very pleasant and professional and there was an atmosphere that everyone really cared about the values of the organization. I had a phone interview and then was referred to another in-person interview about a week later. Everyone worked with my schedule and was very positive and upfront. I was offered a position the next week via telephone and HR followed up with the start date shortly after. Very positive experience.

    Interview

    I met with Steven and while he was a nice person, he seemed more nervous than I was. He asked pretty basic questions: why do you think this job is a good fit? what do you know about YAI? All in all, it was a typical interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at YAI National Institute.

    Interview

    I applied online but after a few weeks of not hearing a call-back , I decided to email a person within HR for a follow-up. Nethenless to say it worked and I obtained an interview.

    The interview went well basic questions about the job itself, the tasks, and my experience.

    After the interview was over I was told to wait until the following Tuesday for a response if not to follow up.

    Tuesday comes and nothing, I follow-up on Thursday and no reply. I wait until the next week and follow up twice email and by phone , also no reply.

    It is unfortunate to not receive a yes or no response.

    Tip to YAI Network be a little more conscientious with your applicants on the interview process, a simple email staring "we decided to move with another candidate" it's sufficient enough to let people move on.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Northvale, NJ).

    The interview was done in a group setting at first. It more of like a discussion at a large table. While there you fill out a few sheets of paper regarding what you are comfortable with. If placement is decided you then do an interview with a house supervisor and take a tour of the house or facility hired for.

    DSP Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Farmingdale, NY) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Invited to group interview a few days later at one of their offices. Was at first impressed by the emails that I received that included directions and information about parking.

    The group interview with 4 other candidates was conducted in an open kitchenette area and though the email requested professional attire, their HR rep was scruffily dressed with exposed tattoos (I've nothing against tattoos) which didn't leave a good impression. No additional information about the company, role or salary was provided.

    The hour-long group interview consisted entirely of a discussion about what would we do if a resident refused to take their medication. This was followed by a one-to-one interview that lasted all of ten minutes. Strongly felt they weren't interested in my background or what I could offer and left feeling that my time was wasted.

    Haven't received any communication yet and not bothered if I don't. Would probably refuse any offer since the impression I got that day - coupled with the many depressing Glassdoor reviews of YAI - was not a positive one.
