    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Headfirst Companies (United States)


    Just one interview via FaceTime and the offer letter came about a week or two later! The questionnaire before applying was more in depth about experience and interview was more hypothetical about how you would handle certain situations

    How would you handle the situation if your co-counselor was becoming frustrated or overwhelmed?
