    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YMCA (Boston, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone interview first, basically just tell me about yourself and why you are interested in the position and then she described the position a little bit and we scheduled an in person interview for the following week. In person interview was very casual, basic questions about dealing with youth and how I handle leadership position. Third interview was on site, I mainly observed and saw what a typical day would look like. It was all very casual and the staff was very easy to talk to.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at YMCA (Cleveland, OH) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Emailed resume/cover letter and within a day received a response to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was on a Tuesday and by the following Monday I set up a face to face interview with the senior membership director and executive director. That interview was the following Tuesday. Two weeks later I went back and interviewed again with those two along with the current wellness director who overlooks two branches and a lady from HR. The whole process was very easy and they were great at feedback and keeping me up to date when I followed up. Two weeks later I received my offer.

    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.

    Interview

    Met face to face. Lasted 10 minutes. Asked generic questions. Most dealt with experience with children and character questions. I already knew people from a previous sports team I had played on so they hired me based off of previous knowledge of who I was.

    Front Desk Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at YMCA (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was simple and I believe it went well. Asked about my past job experience and how I would act in certain situations. Told me they would reach out to my references and have someone call me back. Its been a while since then and I haven't heard anything from the interviewer. Even though they were smiling and laughing in my face as if we were long lost friends. Sent a follow up email asking about the status annnnnnnd... crickets...
         This is one of my biggest pet peeves in the job-seeking process. Recruiters don't have to provide a reason, just a quick "Thank you for your application, but we have decided to engage a different candidate. We wish you the best of luck in your job search." would suffice. It's brutal waiting and waiting only to never hear back from a company, especially if you think you did well in the interview. It's like being stood up on the second or third date. BE REAL! THIS UNPROFESSIONAL!
