    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls (Chicago, IL) in Dec 2017

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with HR, was asked to come in, and a week later I met in person with HR followed by the program manager in the same day. Later that week I was asked to come back and shadow for two hours. After a couple weeks, I was interviewed by the vp and director of youth programming. About two weeks later, my references were all contacted and then I heard nothing. After about two more weeks, I emailed and was told they wanted to interview a few more people and would let me know when the position was filled. And then nothing. It felt very strange to go so far and have references called and not be offered a position; maybe they have a lot of free time?

The holidays aren't canceled at Mercy Home. We are making sure that our kids are having the best possible holiday season and with the help of all the workers here at Mercy Home and our friends, we can accomplish that. We are highlighting Aisha's story for the holidays: After a lifetime of moving from foster home to foster home, Aisha was ready to drop out of school and lost hope for her future--until she came to Mercy Home.
