    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YMCA.

    Interview

    About a 45 minute interview. A lot of scenarios, describing strengths and weaknesses. Very long interview and you have to be prepared for different scenarios, many of the questions seemed the same only worded differently. I thought I bombed because I didn't know what inclusive meant lol, but I played it off. They want to know what your experiences are and how you will use those as a camp counsler.

    Interview Questions

    • What does inclusive mean to you?
      How are you socially responsible?
      What would you do if a child was picking on another child?   2 Answers

    The interview was pretty straight forward. We did the interview in a group of 3 and were asked to perform a song or activity that we would use if we were leading a group of kids, nothing difficult. Then we were asked questions as to how we have handled situations with kids or how we would handle situations like that.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at YMCA (East York, PA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very comprehensive and open. This interview was invasive and it required much time and effort to procure the mandatory documents to be able to perform my duties. The interview itself was very personable and the hiring manager spent hours with me showing me the facilities and explaining the requirements and expectations if I accept offer of employment.
