    Interview

    It was a simple interview with a supervisor of the site I applied for. They ask you to respond to supplemental questions prior to the actual interview. It was straight forward and the interviewer was very friendly and not knowing much about the field is not an issue because they will give you full training.

    Counselor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Brentwood, NY).

    Interview

    This was the most unprofessional interview process I ever been a part of. The interview questions were very easy and common sense. I had three levels on interview on one day. I was told I would get a call back the following day to observe a session. I didn't hear back and followed up. The person I was supposed to meet with, left on vacation. There was a lot of miscommunication and I was asked to go to two separate locations and was told to keep in touch if you don't hear from us because we like you. I continued to get the run around so I cut my losses and accepted a position at another company.

    The hiring process took months. It took even longer to complete the basic trainings and get the first paycheck. The interview was a piece of cake if you already have experience working in the field. Basic scenario questions were asked.

    Was 1.5 hour but that's also because we ended up talking about our personal lives. Very honest and informal interview. They wanted to know what experience I had working with the DD population and what location and hours I wanted to work and what salary I expected to get. Stress free interview. The HR lady and Dr Nichols (medical director) were both very warm and friendly
