    I have been working at Housing Works full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    feels good to be the face of a agency like this

    Cons

    they only care about the numbers..

    Advice to Management

    worry about the staff turn over rates as much as you do the numbers encourage your employees.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Housing Works.

    Interview

    The process took a whole month. I meet with two supervisors and one borough director was present the room because the wasn't sure what office I was going to be place at. The if you pass that interview, you move on to a group interview with a client present which I taught was weird because knowing the client state of mind that the population I was going to be working with, I didn't see how he got to interview as well but I rolled with it. Then if you passed that, you would then meet the VP which there was only one question asked. It was long an unnecessary.
