    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at YMCA.

    Interview Details

    There will be two interviews. The first one was with the director and education supervisor. They will take turn asking questions and will have a back and forth conversation with you. It is pretty easy if you know what you are talking about. After that if they like you, you will be asked to come in and do a working interview. They will place you in a room and will let you interact with the the teachers and children for about a hour. There are cameras in the room so I'm sure they are watching you the whole time. After that they will call and offer you the job. Took about a week to do.

    Pretty straight forward. I contacted the Volunteer Coordinator inquiring if they are accepting placement student. And then after that she asked me to hand in my resume by email. By the next day they they had set up a time and day which they would interview me. If you are successful you just have to complete required documentation.

    Nursery Attendant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at YMCA.

    Interview Details

    Easy and laid back. She wrote down my answers to all the questions and gave me a tour of the nursery. Lasted less than 20 minutes and only offered minimum wage. They were very understaffed at the time so it took them a while to get back to me even thought she said it would only take a couple of days. I had to email her several times but overall it was worth it.

    Summer Camp Counselor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    They were extremely lax in the process and yet very strategic in what type of person they wanted so it was unclear when talking to the people. They had the interview in a back closet sitting among the school supplies. The interviewer didn't seem to be all there and asked rapid fire questions without seeming to listen. It seemed like she had already made up her mind upon meeting me whether or not she would be willing to hire.

    Interview Questions
