    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at YMCA.

    Interview

    it is a 3 year interview process that you must be selected to be a part of. You get to apply as a camper and then the pick about half the applicants to continue through their internship training. It is a long interview and at the end they take less than 10% of the total applicants. If you aren't good with people then don't even bother. You will not get the job.

    Interview Questions

    • no questions, they assess the way you work by being with you for 3 summers.   Answer Question
