    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Youth Villages (Johnson City, TN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    They scheduled a phone interview and asked basic questions regarding your experience, skills, and education relevant for the job and had one case scenario. Next, a couple days later I was called for a second interview face to face and the interview consisted of about 25 behavioral based questions and one case scenario, lasted for about an hour. The interviewer then wanted to get me straight in to the third interview while I was there but she could not because they were tied up with something else. She said that she would call me soon. The next business day I received a letter stating that unfortunately, I did not meet the requirements. I would not waste my time with this company. It's a waste of time and effort just to be led on.

    YV reached out to me via email. I had a brief screening interview with a representative from the headquarters. After I was asked to apply and a few days later I had a phone interview from a representative from the location I applied to and a skype interview with the hiring manager the day after that. Interviews went well, very conversational instead of interrogative. Staff was very nice and honest about the details of the position. Interview consisted of questions about clinical, supervisory, work place experience, and a few case scenarios.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Youth Villages in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was rushed and person spoke very rapidly. It was 5:30pm so perhaps they had dinner plans? I was given a brief overview of the company, quickly told about the benefit package, asked a couple of questions, and given the opportunity to "briefly" ask follow up questions before we moved on to the next section. The interview then stated "if we're interested in giving you an offer you will hear back from us in about a week" and the call ended. The entire experience lasted about 15 minutes.
