    Direct Support Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in DuBois, PA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NHS (DuBois, PA (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked me 9-10 fairly standard interview questions, and then the interview was over. The whole process was less than an hour; and he was very nice. He told me he was impressed with my interview, however, I have experience in this field. And they would call me when they had a client that matched the hours I desired.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at NHS.

    Interview

    There was a 45 minutes numerical test then the interview. In the test, there were calculations regarding density of material, volume, half life of radioisotopes etc. It was a simple mathematical test so you don't actually need very specific knowledge in radiation physics to complete the test.

    Then I was interviewed by 3 staff (head of radiotherapy physics and 2 clinical scientists). They each responsible for a specific set of questions (1. general questions about yourself 2. scientific questions 3. question on radiotherapy). In the interview lasted around half an hour. The staff were really nice so I didn't feel a lot of pressure during the interview. They tried to guide me through the interview if I could not answer one of the questions.

    After the interview, they offered me a tour around the department and show cased one of their linear accelerators.
