    Staff Recruiter Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Youth Villages (Woburn, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First I had a phone screening, then a video conference interview, then a final interview with the hiring manager and a regional director (the interviewing process took about a month). After the final interview, I was told I would hear back in 1 week about their decision. Unfortunately, the hiring manager felt that it wasn’t necessary to notify their applicants that they did not get the position. I sent an email 2 weeks after the final interview took place and never heard back. After all the time spent interviewing, I feel this is totally unprofessional and would not apply here again.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Youth Villages (Lake Oswego, OR) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was very professional and positive, and they had me spend about thirty minutes observing and interacting with clients to get a feel for what the job would be like. This was the luck of the draw that I wasn't observing during a crisis situation. Interview ended up lasting overall about an hour and half including the observation time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Youth Villages (Arlington, MA).

    Interview

    Due to the high turn-over rate, YV is always conducting interviews. You are first called from the headquarters in Nashville to obtain the preliminary information. You are then called by the local office to set up an in-person interview. Interview was basically a run down of what the program entails. As long as you pass a background and drug test, you will most likely get hired because they are so desperate for people

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Youth Villages (Memphis, TN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Was really good - till they just disappeared out of the blue with no explanation. They out-of-the-blue turned a job with full benefits to contract based. I was really confused on why, and never got a response from anyone working there.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Youth Villages.

    Interview

    Sent in my application and received an email a few weeks later about an interview. Scheduled a phone interview with Sister Barbara, who was very kind and friendly. The interview lasted about 30ish minutes. The questions weren't hard at all; it was more like a chat. Heard back a few months later about being hired.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Youth Villages (Memphis, TN) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Started the interview process with recruiter. Got a email about 2 weeks after applying. The recruiter was friendly but did not know much about the job. The next phone interview was with the HM. HM was very personable but did not stay on subject during the interview. It was hard to know whether I should have side bar conversations or try to keep the interview on track. Received a email saying I would not be moving forward in the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Youth Villages.

    Interview

    It was a very cordial, relaxed process; however, a computer glitch voided my eligibility for the position. I had to do the groundwork to correct this issue with little initiative from the company. A phone interview was later followed by a group interview and informational meeting. A 1-on-1 interview was the final step. All portions of the process were relaxed and friendly. I had a feeling that high turnover contributed to the mass of people hired from my cohort.
