    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Direct Service Professional Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Bronx, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was ok. The first part of the interview was in a group setting which was a little intimidating I first but the interviewer made it a relaxed atmosphere. The second part was a one on one interview with the supervisor for me this part was a bit more harder asking a bunch of behavioral questions. After the one on one interview the lady asked me to have a sit in the next room so I guess she could make her decision in private. She came back out a few minutes later and said she will be offering me the position. After that I had to fill out some background forms and she said I will be getting an email. I'm actually still waiting.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YAI National Institute in June 2016.

    Interview

    The group interview makes you feel more comfortable but keep in mind you are competing for one position even though they post multiple openings. The HR person would say there is no right answer but don't let it catch you off guard. Following the group interview is a short 1 on 1 interview where you ask questions about the position or company, so be prepared.

    Community Training Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Went for a group interview in Queens. The lady scheduled an in-person interview with each of us for the following week at a YAI location. Went to that interview, spent the day shadowing another Community Training Specialist, communicated with the individuals who have disabilities and learning more about YAI. Then in the end, the lady who interviewed me asked me how my day was and what I liked about it. She then indicated that they are still interviewing others and she would get back to me in 1.5-2 weeks. I sent her a thank you note. I did not have her email address so I sent it through postal mail. I did not receive anything within 2 weeks so I called her again to follow-up. She said HR would call me. I waited a few days and HR never called me. Then I emailed an HR recruiter who was at the job fair representing YAI and who told me about the group interview. She never got back to me either. It's been four weeks. Obviously, I did not get the job. But the least they can do is let people know whether they got the job or not. I rather receive a solid rejection than no phone call or response at all. Other than that, it seems like a great place to work in.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I met with the Hiring Manager, Supervisor of the program, Clinical Director, Colleague in the program, and a panel of travelers throughout the day for about 30 to 60 min each. Some of the questions were repeated or asked in different ways by each of the interviewers. There was a strong focus on the field as a whole. It was clear that the personality and beliefs of the candidate would be the most important aspect of hiring (rather than solely based on experience or skills).
