    I worked at New Alternatives for Children full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    NAC offered a lot of flexibility for my schedule and I got a lot of good clinical experience over my 2 years as an employee.

    Cons

    A lot of work you do not get compensated for. I had to wear a lot of different hats, work long hours, and there were no benefits or opportunities for professional growth.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees. They are all good hard workers, give them a reason to stay. Turn over has a big impact on the clients you are serving.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at New Alternatives for Children (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Submit application, no phone screen, invitation to interview, one in person interview, an assignment.

    The interview lasted 3 hours and was very casual. I left feeling fairly positive about the experience and was told I would be contacted in ~2 weeks. I reached out via email and was told that it would take more time but then was never contacted again. Overall I had a negative experience, I never spoke with HR, received no follow up, and had little to no direction about the "assignment/writing sample." Friendly hiring manager but the process was unprofessional.
