    Interview

    Went in for a interview, turns out to be a group interview with five other people. The interview process was fast but the hiring process was slow. Took almost 2 months to hear back from them, just when I was going to give up and look elsewhere they called me back.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Group interview was lively and friendly. Room started with about 50 people and Supervisors requested specific persons for one on one interviews. Sitting in a large room full of competition was very nerve wrecking but being friendly with those around you is noticed by Supervisors.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The first interview was actually a great interview despite it being a group interview with almost 10- 15 individuals. The experience was great and I believe it is to see who can deal with pressure and be themselves. The question that were asked wasn't hard in my opinion because it revolved around an individuals personality and how they handle situations. I received a call back to interview one on one which turned out to be a 2 on 1 but it still in my opinion was good it allow both parties to get into detail about themselves and there employment history.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell a time when something was challenging and how did you handle it. They provided a scenario and asked "What would you do if tyler did not want to take medication?"   Answer Question

    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.
