I have been working at City of Alexandria Virginia full-time (More than 10 years)
Benefits are great; love working with people in human services; pay is competitive (now);
Too many members of management; could be more effective with treating clients if team members were more flexible and attentive
Advice to Management
Listen more; talk/direct less- even direct care staff have much to contribute to how things should be handled/ran
I applied online. I interviewed at City of Alexandria Virginia (Alexandria, VA).
An hour with 2 staff and the supervisor. It was mix of technical questions and behavioral questions. Some questions were multi-part so you had to pay attention and answer completely. I'd suggest brining a pen and pad of paper to write the key points of the question as it is asked. They would usually ask follow up questions after my answer. The interview process feels a little cold or unwelcoming.
