    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Volunteers of America (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very relaxed and casual. They requested I dress casually which was a bit awkward at first because I have never been to a casual interview. When I got there I felt very welcome and comfortable. The interview was held in a laid-back group room with large couches. I felt confident and did not hesitate on answering their questions. It was definitely the most comfortable I have ever felt in a job interview.
