    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Year Up (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    About 2 weeks after initial application, HR representative scheduled a 30min phone interview, where she described the role and organization briefly. She then asked me some basic questions about my past roles and experience, and why I wanted to work with Year Up. It was a wonderful conversation, and at the end she did ask about desired salary range.
    Next, was invited to do an in-person interview with Sr. Director of Program. Was a great conversation, and she asked many scenario questions: "If you see that a particular group of students are firing themselves from program, what kinds of interventions might you put into place?". A few days later, I was invited for a final interview with the Associate Director of Program, and Associate Director of Student Services. They asked many scenario questions as well, and throughout the whole process were open to me asking questions.
    That interview happened on a Friday, and about a week later received the offer.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Year Up (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by in person. The in person was a panned, which could be a little intimidating. They asked a lot of really thoughtful youth development questions that gave me confidence in their programs. However, when I was offered the job, I was expected to take the job right then and there on the phone. When I asked if I could see an offer letter and have a day or two to decide, I was told they don't do that. I was really excited about the opportunity, but the phone call offering me the job made me feel uneasy enough that I decided to go with another offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Year Up (Philadelphia, PA) in July 2017.

    Was called the day before and asked to prepare a lesson plan for the 3rd interview. This interview was in another state and would take an hour to get there. Was not told about parking or even who I would be teaching. I get there and pay 20 dollars to park only for the staff to be rude and unprofessional. The two students I met where great.

    Teaching Assistant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Year Up (Boston, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online mid-February and was interviewed by phone at the end of March. Didn't click very well with interviewer, but interview was a pretty standard phone screen. Sent two follow-up e-mails until I was notified that someone else had been hired. HR department seems very disorganized and it's disappointing that an organization that does such good work is so inconsiderate to potential employees.
