    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Garfield, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    A group interview then a one on one. It seemed like they really wasn't interested in doing the one on one to really find out who you are as a person. The group interview was just a way of them letting you know about the company and that's all I got out of it. It was unorganized and It felt like time wasted. They I may get a call in 2 weeks for a second interview.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions... I didn't get asked any job related question. Just my availability.   Answer Question

    Initially, there was 18 people and we had to fill out 2 papers. Afterwards, we were broken up into groups. Within that group there was two interviewers and they ask questions surrounding what would you do if...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at YAI National Institute (Bayside, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Tricky YAI!
    1) They try to show you the supply of labor is much greater than the demand for labor by group interviewing 80 people at the same time and at the same place on 06/30/2011 at 4 PM-8 PM.
    Address: 211-11 Northern Blvd. Bayside, NY 11361

    2) They intertview people with Masters and Bachelors degree to pay $12 dolloars an hour for directcare positions that will help their ID and DD population to bath, dress and groom highschool dropouts can do.

    3) They make you fillout 4 pages of application form before you go to them, 4 pages of jobfair registration form when you are waiting to be interviewed and finally they will trick you to fillout and sign another 3 pages of document that will change what you applied for and offering you a $12 Dollars an hour job with your Masters degree and more than 10 years of social service experience in the same industry.

    4) Most of the candidates were more educated than the YAI staffs who were interviewing us.

    5) What YAI is basically lookig for is people who can watch, dress, bath and transport their residents but they don't tell you that when they call you for an interview after they reviewed your resume with aMasters and Bachelors level of education and experience.
