    Interview process was fairly simple and easy. It was in a relaxed environment. Showcase yourself and abilities. If you need to take a minute before answering question that is ok too as some may catch you off guard at times.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at YMCA.

    Interview

    Fairly simple interview. They usually look for experienced guards, and want someone to work evening hours. You must be able to swim the required amount of distance for American Red Cross. You pretty much know if you will or will not be hired on the first interview. Quick and easy, just be honest and depending on your qualifications you will most likely get the job.

    Group Teacher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YMCA (Flushing, NY).

    Interview

    After submitting my application I corresponded with a lady who I later found out was my boss's boss. I supplied a resume and cover letter. I was contacted again and asked to send references. Then a interview was scheduled. It was perhaps the easiest part of the whole process. Then I was instructed to wait at least two weeks for my background check, urine sample (you do not want to fail this), and my fingerprints to be scanned. About three weeks after the interview I started working.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YMCA (Orlando, FL).

    Interview

    Was pretty standard, seemed inviting. When you first entered it was a bit intimidating but other than that it was fine. Just be prepared to answer questions in depth. And bare in mind that it is a company geared towards children and families.
