    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at YMCA.

    Interview

    Fairly easy process. Did application online and was contacted to come in for a group interview about a week after. The interview itself consisted of presenting your own programming for a typical camp day as well as demonstrating one of the activities you have planned. Also had a separate interview away from the group.
