    Swim Instructor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at YMCA (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    I sat down with the aquatics director and chatted for a bit, but I think that since I was a swimmer that I had quite the advantage. She just discussed my past jobs, why I wanted to be an instructor, and where I wanted to be in a year.
