    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Children's Village (Dobbs Ferry, NY).

    Interview

    Interview was very good, Very precise questions, comfortable environment, no pressure, casual and straight to the point. The interviewer was very clinical in his approach and also mindful to your personal experiences and his responses. Very thoughtful and you can tell that he seeks to find talent regardless of history or background. Great interview overall.
