    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Volunteers of America.

    Interview

    The process was long, from the phone screening there was an interview scheduled, which was directly followed by a second interview the same day if possible. HR assess your communication skills with a grammar test, which needs a 80% or higher score. You are then sent to the site to do a visit and get a feel of the people you will be working with. This is followed by a background/drug test, check all credentials.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have experience in Psych rehab, as this is the theory that the organization follows for group homes.   Answer Question
