    Direct Care Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    Interview was long and with the director only. He showed me the whole facility and explained how a lot of things worked. After two hours we get to the silly part 16 hour days very little time off no overtime at 34k which is beyond ridiculous. Best part seem like spending all day with the kids outside would whip you in shape.

    Interview Questions

    • Experience working with at risk youth, how would you handle assaults, promote the program, most youth counselors are straight out of college and need direction how would you go about that etc.   Answer Question
