    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Eliot Community Human Services (Lexington, MA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online, phone call the screen, then in person interview with direct supervisor. I had to submit to a cori and wait for it to be returned to get an offer. I was not given much info about the job during the interview process. I was told salary was based in experience no definite figure. I was also not told I would be working shifts alone till after I was hired. When I was given a tour I was led to believe Id have a staff with me.

    Interview Questions

    • How you would handle a situation with a difficult client.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Take it or leave it.
