    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at YWCA (Norfolk, VA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The interview was long. They kept asking in different ways how could I engage the children in academics. There were other scenarios that they kept giving involving incidents that could happen with children. There were also some interruptions during my interview.
