I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at YMCA (New York, NY).

Interview process was very straightfoward. You apply online/send in your resume. If you are chosen from the resume, they will call you in to ask you a few questions. Most of these questions gauge your ability to work with children.
