I worked at YAI National Institute full-time (More than a year)
The company culture seems positive and comes off as encouraging. They have great training sessions and really push the field forward in the ways that employees should think and act when working with this population. Great benefits and the schedule can be flexible at times.
Very little room for growth, with people in the same positions for years. Some false promises and they appear to be cutting position rather than creating more for others to grow. Pay isn't great.
Advice to Management
Stop getting rid of positions and burdening hardworking employees with more tasks without rewarding them accordingly. Don't let good employees or loyal ones with 10+ years of experience walk away without providing opportunities for real growth. Address unrest or dissatisfaction among employees in a timely manner rather than let it fester.
It was a simple interview with a supervisor of the site I applied for. They ask you to respond to supplemental questions prior to the actual interview. It was straight forward and the interviewer was very friendly and not knowing much about the field is not an issue because they will give you full training.
